Happiness is Home
Happiness begins in the home. The place you always return to. A space you enjoy spending time in. The rooms that reflect who you are. These are homes that are bigger than just spacious — with all bedrooms so large they can fit a king-sized bed. You could even say, they’re larger than life. Home is a place for connection, comfort, belonging, and love. This is the foundation for happiness. This is Skagen.
Feel great knowing you are doing something good for the planet and for your family. Passive House homes utilize advanced and sustainable building technologies that lead to healthier living spaces filled with fresh air. And if that wasn’t enough, homeowners will also benefit from an 80% reduction in overall heating costs.
Floor Plans for Skagen
Ranging in size from 1,450 – 1,774 sq ft, Skagen will consist of 36 x 3-bedroom and 16 x 4-bedroom 3-storey townhomes. Previewing this Fall, I recommend those who are interested to sign up to our VIP list above for priority access to Skagen updates.
