Mystic - The Mystic Point residential/marina complex will be one of the projects featured in the Connecticut Green Building Council's Green Homes Tour on Saturday from noon to 3 p.m.
The event allows the public to tour homes that have used energy efficient construction standards and clean energy technologies to build or renovate their properties.
Mystic Point, which features a 122-slip marina, replaced a dilapidated trailer park on Masons Island with 10 three-bedroom, three-bathroom townhouses of 2,500 square feet each. Three single-family homes will soon be built. The project installed geothermal heating and cooling and sewers.
The project, built by Evergreen Fine Custom Homes of Stonington, also met various sustainability standards for materials, maintenance, land use and other items and is Leadership in Energy Design & Environmental Design (LEED) certified. Robert Ferrara, a member of the project's development group Mystic Point LLC, said one owner reported spending $150 a month this winter for heat and electricity. Four of the townhouses have been sold or are under contract.
