The residences in Alys Beach have virtually the same Bermudian architectural design and appeal. Some are attached but do not share common walls. Most of the residences are 3-5 bedroom, 2 ½ to 5 bath single-family dwellings featuring 2000 to 5000 GLA. The homes have very good quality. The homes are made of concrete walls and concrete roof. Using quality construction techniques, Alys Beach homes have earned the designation of Fortified for safer living® homes and qualify for a special insurance program.
In addition to their durability, Alys Beach homes are built sustainable and are considered to be green homes designed to have less environmental impact than conventionally built homes. One feature of their sustainable design is passive heating and cooling, which reduces energy costs. Whenever possible, Alys Beach homes use natural materials such as cypress, solid poplar wood trim, coquina, raffia, sea grass and locally harvested wood. Soy-based spray-foam insulates the homes.
They use zero-VOC paints and finishes and recycled drywall, along with fewer petroleum-based products. Standard interiors incorporate stone tile and energy-efficient appliances from Sub-Zero, Thermador, Wolf and Bosch. All building materials are fire resistant and sprinkler protected. The entire Alys Beach community is designed to be a model of sustainability and commitment to environmental responsibility. Even the process of building has been greened by reusing or recycling up to 75% of construction waste.
