Lennar Charleston’s First Solar Smart Home Community Debuts On James Island

Lennar Charleston

Sea Aire offers exclusive access to Amazon Alexa tech features


Charleston, S.C. – (April 3, 2018) – In early April, Sea Aire, Lennar’s first community to offer solar homes and Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ smart homes in South Carolina, will open on James Island. At just 24 homes, the intimate community is located off Folly Road and in easy driving distance to both the beach and downtown. Sea Aire is designed to celebrate and make a minimal impact on its natural environment with a host of advanced technological features to change the way homeowners live.

Sea Aire’s collection of solar, Charleston Single-style homes are the newest additions to Lennar’s Everything’s Included® program, meaning sought-after extras and add-ons like stainless steel appliances, upgraded cabinetry, granite countertops, subway tile backsplash, and HardiePlank® exterior are included in price of the home,[1] which start in the $300K’s.

Sea Aire’s standout environmental features include preserved grand oak trees and native plantings among community gardens, compost bins, storm water filtration systems, and pervious grass pavers. These Lennar homes will all feature the Wi-Fi Alliance’s Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ program,[2] designed to keep residents connected and in control with advanced automation features and Amazon Alexa voice control.

In addition to the significant value Lennar’s signature Everything’s Included program already offers – such as upgraded countertops and appliances – buyers also receive a wide range of smart products from top manufacturers that change the way they live in their new home at no additional cost.  Some of these features include:

  • Ability to monitor and control all automated home features from almost anywhere in the world via iOS and Android devices with Samsung® SmartThings®
  • Advanced home security via Baldwin/Kwikset keyless front doors and Ring® Video Doorbells
  • Smart climate control with Honeywell® thermostats
  • Control of both sunlight and lighting via Lutron dimmers and automated window treatments
  • Wireless music in every room with a Sonos® home sound system

“Sea Aire is set in one of the most picturesque areas of Charleston, and is one of the most special places to live in a solar community,” said Jason Byham, President of Lennar Coastal Carolinas Division. And thanks to our Amazon integration, homeowners can rely on Alexa voice controls to make the most out of our Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ smart features. Weaving technology into the lives of our homeowners for their joy, convenience, and safety only adds to our excitement.”

On April 10, 2018, Lennar will host a ribbon cutting to celebrate this addition to James Island at the recently completed Sea Aire model home at 1410 Pearl Channel Loop, Charleston, SC, 29412.
