Marmalade’s Green House

In 2006, the infill lot at 353 W Reed Avenue in the Marmalade neighborhood became home to this urban, 2,400 sf green built home. It’s open and bright, and features 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a mother-in-law apartment to help offset the mortgage payments, plus it’s been tested by the Utah Energy Conservation Coalition and was found to be 50% off the grid, which translates into huge energy saving.

Some of the green aspects of the home include:

• Rainwater harvesting system for the garden and landscaping.

• Pavers that alleviate demand on storm water drainage system.

• Energy Star rated asphalt shingles, which are white to reduce heat absorption.

• Insulated Concrete Form block construction.

• Clustered plumbing.

• Cross lighting, using window placement and skylights for maximum natural light.

• Passive solar window placement.

• Cross ventilation.

• VOC paints and sealants

• Use of natural products like pine and slate.

•  Double pane Low-E windows

• Energy Star appliances

• Radiant floor heat.

• Xeriscaped yard.

All this in an urban, walkable neighborhood less than 1 mile from downtown and just a short distance from hiking trails, parks, shopping, TRAX and commuter rail, and close to the 600 N entrance to I-15. Asking $297,000.
