"Under Jeff's leadership, we have crossed the fifty percent mark with over 86 homes sold to date and more property sales in the pipeline." As a LEED-certified community, Mirabella's Bradenton Villas provides buyers with homes that offer clean indoor air, are built with safe materials, use less energy and water, and have lower utility bills each month. Retirees living on a fixed income benefit from owning a green home in Mirabella because they not only save money on bills each month but they also enjoy long-term financial benefits like tax breaks, zoning allowances, and increased property values. Mirabella's homes are also ENERGY STAR and HERS certified, which provide even more cost-saving, energy-efficient advantages for active adult homebuyers. To receive LEED certification, each home must earn points in five green design categories: sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality. The number of points accrued from these categories determines which of the four levels of LEED certification has been reached: Certified, Silver, Gold, or Platinum. Mirabella has earned the highest certification level, Platinum, acknowledging it as a unique and healthy environment for active adults. Mirabella's LEED certified homes use nearly 40 percent less energy than what is used in a typical home. They feature Energy Star appliances manufactured by companies including GE, Carrier, Argos, Shaw, and Atrium. Plumbing features include EPA WaterSense faucets, toilets, showers and irrigation controllers, which help reduce water consumption significantly — with no reduction in overall performance. Homes are inspected for quality control during each phase of the building process.
