Appointed with finishes seldom seen in this market segment, smart home features and sustainable design, these homes are built to last and fulfill the Gentry Homes vision of providing value to customers through innovation and technology, quality construction, competitive pricing, and superior customer attention. Three homes will be released this month; read on for what sets Makamae apart and how you can be one of the last to own in this attractive, soon-to-be fully developed neighborhood.

Sustainable and Smart Homes

Additionally, Makamae leads the industry with sustainability and green features, which not only preserve our island home for future generations, but save money month after month with energy efficiency. A solar hot water system with 120 gallon tank, 20 SEER air conditioning (far above federal efficiency standards), low-e dual pane windows to keep out heat, all-LED lighting, rough-ins for ceiling fans in every bedroom and living area, and open cell attic insulation all contribute to more comfort with less spent on electricity bills.

Gentry’s commitment to home technology to add security and convenience is illustrated in features such as digital thermostat with WIFI and mobile access, USB outlets in bedroom and select living areas, fiberoptic cable ready, category 6 telecommunication wiring throughout home, whole-home surge protector and phone/computer jack in all bedrooms, insulated roll up garage with 2 remotes / key pad entry, and keyless touch screen deadbolt in garage.
