Western Rim’s upmarket housing has a reputation for both charming and tasteful interiors. Distinctive traits are noticeable upon first glance: high-ceiling foyers with rich wood flooring complement kitchens with designer cabinets, porcelain tile backsplashes and Whirlpool’s ENERGY STAR-certified stainless steel appliances. Baths come standard with jetted Jacuzzi® garden tubs. Stand-up showers are equipped with rainwater showerheads and boast chrome fixtures. The cutting-edge appliances and eco-friendly building choices further Marcus Hiles Fort Worth developer’s goal of utilizing the most sustainable options available. Attics include reflective TechShield® radiant barrier sheathing panels which redirect the sun’s warmth and lower utility costs. Recycled full depth cellulose sound insulation reduces power consumption while the innovative, fire retardant material also assists with noise reduction between units, preventing intrusive sounds from entering the home. Hiles communities also feel as good as they sound, with preferred temperatures maintained by programmable HVAC systems, using substantially less energy than other thermostats. Tight seals fit extra-tall, double-pane, argon gas-layered windows to reduce heat loss in colder months by nearly 75 percent and limit cooling requirements throughout summer.
