The De Carlo House Plan is full of Energy-Smart features, such as dropped soffits that conceal the A/C Ducts and the Air Handling Unit (AHU) closet are all within the conditioned space. These important elements make the De Carlo super energy efficient while at the same time every square inch of living space has been maximized. Making the home “live” much larger than the square foot numbers show.

Glass sliders open the living space to the covered lanai, bringing the outdoors in. The galley Kitchen offers a serving bar area with Pantry next to the Dining Room.
A private Master Suite is tucked in the front of the home and provides dual walk-in closets with an ensuite bath.
