Davenport, Iowa subdivision offers green capabilities

By
Real Estate Agent with Mel Foster Co

Eagle Ridge is a new single family residential development on the west end of Davenport, Iowa within Scott County limits. The exact location lies on the south east corner of hwy 61 south and 100th Ave. Map As you can see from the map this neighborhood has close access to many highways, West Lake Park, The Mississippi River, award winning schools and downtown Davenport.

Eagle Ridge offers unusually large lots for a residential subdivision. Lots range from .69 acres to 1.4 acres. The land is quite hilly and thus, 50% of these lots offer walk-out & daylight capabilities. For those of you who enjoy your garages, most of these lots will also allow for a detached garage or large building not to exceed 30x40 with a maximum side height of 16'. How's that for a garage?
 

In addition to paying low county taxes the Eagle Ridge subdivision also offers city water. The only utility not in place is the sewer. Owners will need to put in a septic system which should run between $5,500 & $7,000.
 

Now for the environmentally friendly options. This subdivision has been graded in such a way that any build up of storm water will drain away from a structure and back into the ground, not into the sewer. This will eliminate excess rain water run-off into our creeks and rivers thus, helping to eliminate water pollution.

Another potential for Eagle Ridge is the use of passive solar technologies (an entry will be added soon with additional info on passive solar. Make sure to subscribe via email so you don't miss it). Many of these lots face south or north and therefore the orientation of the home can be designed around capturing the sunlight in the winter and keeping it out in the summer. Along these same lines, natural daylighting can be designed into the home also. People would be surprised to hear that they can save an average of 15%-30% on their heating bill by using the sun in the winter months to help heat the home. Ground-loop and ground-water heat pumps (Geo-Thermal) can also be used within Eagle Ridge.

As you can see this Scott County subdivision is very versatile and can suit the needs of many. Lot pricing starts at $47,500. Visit www.QCEagleRidge.com if you would like a copy of the plat and covenants. To discuss further energy efficient options don't hesitate to call 563.570.1106.
