Thinking about building a dream home in Leavenworth, Chelan, or Wenatchee? Then you won’t want to miss the opportunity to tour this Leavenworth custom home and meet the team. Holistically designed by Syndicate Smith and masterfully built by Carlisle Classic Homes, this is a showcase for how a home can be beautiful, durable and comfortable while still treading lightly on the environment.

This home was conscientiously designed with passive house principles in mind. On the exterior, you’ll first notice the beautiful color of the naturally oxidized Corten steel siding. A low maintenance solution that will never need painting. Framed in exposed steel with expansive windows, this home capitalizes on magnificent views while also ensuring thermal performance. Triple pane windows and solar shades team together to minimize air leakage and control heat gain. Rockwool exterior insulation eliminates thermal bridging, reduces noise, and helps to mitigate fire risks.

Inside, the living spaces flow effortlessly together with an open floor plan and a large accordion glass door that connects the kitchen dining area with the exterior patio. Maintenance and durability were key design considerations for this dog-loving homeowner. Concrete floors and hard surfaces throughout provide easy cleaning while maintaining low-allergen levels for house guests. A heat recovery ventilator ensures year-around fresh air and provides a substantial reduction in energy costs.
