Garman Homes builds green in Briar Chapel

Garman Homes is using green building techniques and sustainable building products to create efficiently-designed, three- and four-bedroom homes in Briar Chapel with cozy yards and detached, two-car garages with back-alley parking for two more cars. Homes in Briar Chapel have access to approximately 900 acres of open space and 24 miles of hiking and biking trails. There is a spacious clubhouse with fitness center, outdoor swimming pool, and multiple parks —one with an amphitheater, some with open fields, some with gazebo/pergola type structures and others with boulder outcrops. The neighborhood parks include two community gardens, a dog park, a discovery park with a fossil dig area and hammocks, and a children’s playground near the pool.
