Living tomorrow today. The home of the future is here today and it’s in Charlotte on Rama Road!

With home model names like ReCharge, ReFresh and ReBalance, Chelsea Building Group’s new ReAlta development is unlike anything Charlotte has seen. Located in Charlotte’s newest “it” area MoRa (Monroe Road corridor), ReAlta’s twenty homes (priced in the $475-575k range) combine European design, innovative building materials, unheard of Home Efficiency Ratings Systems (HERS)… Oh and it happens to be Charlotte’s first fully solar community.

Sounds great, right? But what does all of that mean? Well, let me put it in context: The day I toured the model home, solar energy was providing 100%+ of the power needed for the home, and was even sending some back to Duke Energy for a credit to boot! Green is good, and in ReAlta it’s really good. The solar energy systems in the homes are projected to save a ReAlta homeowner thousands of dollars. So while you’re doing good for the environment, you’re also doing good, very good, for you!

Chelsea Building Group has done an amazing job of creating a modern living environment that is both warm and inviting. Whether it’s contemporary, mid-century modern or modern, their homes are all about simplicity and functional design. Homes at ReAlta boast the coolest most sought after design features. Bright open living spaces, extra large windows for more natural light, spa-like bathrooms, and outdoor living spaces that are a seamless connection between the outdoors and indoors, another tenet of modern living. Plenty of room to entertain friends, welcome family, or to just relax at end of a busy day. 

At ReAlta it’s all about being connected. You're not just in your home; your home is part of you! No, it’s not a Vulcan mind meld, but your home does understand you and responds accordingly. With one touch, your home will dim the lights, stream high-resolution music, turn up the heat, lock the doors and arm the security system. How cool is that?? As the team at Chelsea Building Group puts it, “Control4 delivers power and performance on one platform that coordinates the technology in your house into complete experiences—interactions that fit your lifestyle and are easy for your family to enjoy”. 

The Chelsea team also states, ”we believe in making houses that live as well as they look, that are as solid behind the walls as they are beautiful on the outside.”

Ready to see the future, your future… call me at (704) 517-5417 or, and I'll give you a tour of the development. Don't worry, it's OK if you drive your normal terrestrial car!
