Blu Homes launches pre-fab model for LA market
Blu Homes updated its Breezehouse design to appeal specifically to the Southern California homebuyer. It's the first model home in Southern California for the Waltham, Mass.-based pre-fab homebuilder.
The 2,900 square-foot Breezehouse model is located on a hillside lot in Agoura Hills, with separate 24-foot Pod, which can be used as a guesthouse, yoga room, or home office. The home will have four bedrooms, four bathrooms and attached garage. When finished later this year, the home will be open for private tours by appointment and public open house events hosted by Blu Homes.
In addition to the floor-to-ceiling fenestration, soaring ceilings and open floorplan for which this modern prefab icon is known, guests will find larger bedrooms with walk-in closets, a 5 foot x 5 foot walk-in shower in the master bath, folding Nanawalls on either side of the Breezespace and expanded storage, including a walk-in pantry. Plus, by making some additional modifications to the floor plan, Blu was able to create a larger, grander central Breezespace.
"This Breezehouse has been customized specifically for the Southern California lifestyle based on what local homebuyers told us they are looking for most in a home," explained Bill Haney, Blu Homes' founder and president. "When it opens for tours, this home will express the best in luxurious Southern California living: beautiful modern design with a seamless indoor-outdoor connection, grand spaces and expansive decking for year-round entertaining and generous storage and closet space for the stand-up paddleboards, bikes, and other outdoor gear essential to making the most of life in Southern California."
All Blu Homes are LEED Silver certifiable and are solar-ready. Beyond the standard green features that Blu includes in every home, such as recycled steel framing, radiant heat flooring, high R-value walls and energy-efficient appliances, Blu Homes can achieve net zero energy status, Energy Star rating and higher LEED certifications with the inclusion of other available green elements.
Like all Blu homes, the L.A. model Breezehouse will be built in the company's California factory, transported by truck, and then "unfolded" on site. Blu Homes' proprietary building technology and steel framing allow its homes to be set on virtually any land site and to withstand extreme seismic, weather, and wind conditions.
The Los Angeles model home is the first of many that Blu expects to construct in key markets throughout North America, making it much easier for interested clients to tour a Blu Home.
