Custom Designed Fort Hill Single Family Home Provides State of the Art Energy Efficiency

​​​​​​​The Rocksberry House is a modern, custom designed single family home with a private back yard that provides state of the art energy efficiency. According the developer Placetailor, this ground-breaking green building is designed to use 90% less heating energy than a typical home and is one of a few passive house projects in the entire state. The home is efficient enough to be powered by the same amount of energy necessary to power a hairdryer.

Placetailor has gained a reputation as a conscientious neighborhood developer. The company was responsible for the popular Hawthorne Youth and Community Center on Fulda Street.

Nestled in Roxbury’s historic Fort Hill neighborhood, this modern 3 bedroom home sits across from the recently renovated Marcella Park. It features a wonderfully private back yard, sunny living spaces, concrete and hardwood floors, German made windows and doors, thoughtful construction details, parking for 2 cars and easy access to public transportation.

Building Features: 

   • Super thick, insulated walls and ceilings
   • Roof-mounted solar hot water panels
   • Triple pane windows that dramatically reduce drafts and noise
   • Advanced heat recovery systems constantly deliver fresh air into the home 
The state of the art design provides an optimal living environment year-round. As the home owner noted on a 90 degree day, “I’ve never been happier to live in my house than I am in this moment. I’m working from home. Every window is shut. I’m drinking hot tea and I’m utterly, totally comfortable”
If you’re interested in living the green life, this New England Modern style single family home is a rare opportunity to own a super energy efficient home while living close to all that the Greater Boston area has to offer. It's a must see!
