The Mollie Rae Estates subdivision is under way, and two homes are now available for sale, said Geoff Hyland, a real estate agent with RE/Max Mountain Properties in Prescott.
"They are starting in the mid-$200,000 range, and going up from there," Hyland said.
The 106-lot subdivision is located along Firesky Lane and south of Center Street.
Hyland said the energy-efficient homes will appeal to similar demographics as other subdivisions in Chino Valley, such as Appaloosa Meadows.
"There is a good mix of retirees as well as individuals looking for a little more elbow room and room for recreational vehicles or outbuildings," Hyland said.
Hyland said Sycamore Homes of Prescott is building the homes in Mollie Rae Estates, adding the developers consist of a group of investors who own lots in the subdivision.
Each of the lots is about an acre in size, and all of the homes will be on the municipal water system, Hyland said.
However, the homes will be on septic systems, not hooked to the town's sewer plant.
"Improvements are there for potentially the subdivision to be hooked up to the sewer system," Hyland said.
He said buyers will have a choice of the Prairie and Meadow View floor plans, which both feature three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The Prairie View plan covers 1,682 square feet, and the Meadow View plan offers 1,865 square feet.
Each plan has a variety of features, including:
An open, bright kitchen with granite countertops, maple cabinets, a walk-in pantry and under-cupboard lighting;
A master suite with a large walk-in closet and a spacious bathroom with a tile shower surround and a garden tub;
Raised height ceilings;
Rubbed bronze fixtures and hardware;
A gas fireplace;
Wiring for ceiling fans and a security system;
A separate laundry room with counters, cabinets and a utility sink, and hookups for either gas or electric dryers;
A three-car garage;
A tank-less hot water heater;
Spacious guest bedrooms;
A paver driveway, as well as pillar and stone exterior accents.
Hyland stressed the energy efficiency of the homes, which will be certified for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design and Energy Star.
The subdivision also will have a homeowners association, Hyland said.
