Located just two blocks from the heart of downtown Fairhope, Knoll Park Flats looks out over historic Knoll Park and Mobile Bay. Eight 3-story painted brick townhomes with charming architectural details are housed in four duplexes, with a common space for outdoor entertaining. The design is inspired by Cape Dutch architecture, which adapted durable traditional elements from the Netherlands, Germany, and France to the needs of a hot climate.
All residences were designed in accordance with the DOE’s Zero Energy Ready Home program guidelines, which prescribes rigorous requirements for energy efficiency and indoor air quality. Homebuyers can opt for a solar upgrade, additional performance testing, and inspections in order to certify their home though the program.
Durability and ease of maintenance are critical elements for potential homeowners.
All residences will achieve Fortified Gold Certification, allowing homeowners to spend less time thinking about maintenance and utility bills, and more time thinking about their next symphony on the bluff or First Friday artwalk with friends
The Residences are located across the street from Knoll Park, a unique longleaf pine ecosystem in the heart of Fairhope, recently designated a Butterfly Sanctuary. Residents will have a front row seats for the annual migration of monarch butterflies and neotropical birds across the gulf.
