Bakersfield home developer offers green building, big savings

It might be one of the most innovative home developments in Bakersfield when it is finished, but this new community, across the street from Mesa Marin Sports Park, aims to provide value and efficiency to its new residents.

Tarina Homes, a Bakersfield-based company, is building the Shamrock Hills community, just south of Highway 178, in one of the city’s fastest growing neighborhoods. Located across the street from the campus of Cato Middle School and Fletcher Elementary School, Shamrock Hills will be a quick walk to schools and parks and a short drive to shopping other community amenities, but the development is also focused on some bigger issues for new residents.

“We are going to build green out here,”  James McKay, one of the principals in Tarina Homes, told Richard Beene, left.  “Our goal is to have the greenest homes in Bakersfield, and in California. So, we’re going to be offering a new type of construction product that you haven’t seen around here. It’s been developed before in the northeast but they have never been developed here in Bakersfield or Kern County.”

McKay said the company’s goal is to build zero-net homes where homeowners will have access to solar and whole home batteries.

“If you wanted to you could turn off your main breaker,” McKay said. “That’s one of our goals.”

Priced between $200,000 and $300,000, Shamrock Hills will offer seven-floor plans — all single story. The largest model will feature 2,204-square feet of living space and offer four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

McKay said the details on the amenities are still being developed, but all homes will feature tile roofs, custom cabinetry, quartz or granite countertops and a range of other features.

“Our goal is to be energy efficient,” McKay said. “We want to be able to put more money into the pocket of the home buyer.”
