Serosun Farms is a rural sustainable community built around 410 acres of farm and open space. At its core Serosun is a farmland preservation project using innovative zoning strategies developed in conjunction with Kane County. The community requires that all homes being built on the farm meet sustainable and healthy requirements as well as are designed with architectural styling to blend with its rural flavor.

Swainson’s House is the first model and demonstration home to be built as part of the project and will be used as both a sales and design center but also an education demonstration tool for the project. It features many sustainable and healthy home elements while being a luxury country home. Some sustainable features include native based landscaping, permeable pavements, a rain harvesting system, and a green roof. It will also be included as a Healthy Homes demonstration home.
