Featured Move-In Ready 100% Energy Star Home in Nocatee

The Ellaville at 370 Citrus Ridge Drive Ponte Vedra, FL 32081 in Greenleaf Lakes at Nocatee features 2,758 Sqft. of living space with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, Dining Room, Family Room, Kitchen/Café, Covered Patio and 2-Car Garage.

The Ellaville is a 100% ENERGY STSAR® Certified home that was designed and built with a conditioned attic. By applying foam insulation under the roof deck and making the attic part of the conditioned space, many of the undesirable conditions found in a traditional unconditioned attic are eliminated. The end result is greater energy efficiency, lower energy bills, increased moisture control and potentially a much healthier living environment.

The Ellaville’s “As-Built” HERS Index Rating of 53 estimates the total monthly electric bill for this 2,758 Sqft. of living space home to be $109.00! The estimated savings versus a comparable new code built home is over $820.00 a year (based upon D.O.E and independent RESNET analyses and reporting).

Interior appointments include:

  • GK214 Ellaville Urban RusticCeramic Tile Flooring at Foyer, Kitchen/Cafe, Dining, Family Room, Laundry & all Bathrooms
