Xyla Homes

The Xyla platform offers convenient one-floor living in a compact volume. Xylas are especially popular with clients looking to downsize into a home that offers good accessibility and low, predictable operating costs.

The Xyla is one of Unity’s most versatile platforms, with countless variations possible. Many of our Xylas have 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, and range in size from 1500 to 1800 square feet. We have also built more compact Xylas with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, in the 1000 to 1500 square foot range. While the Xyla, like all of Unity’s platforms, can be built on a full foundation, many clients choose the more economical option of a slab foundation.

We offer two distinct versions of the main Xyla volume: one with flat ceilings, and the other with a double height vaulted ceiling. The flat ceiling option is more affordable, and still feels spacious thanks to the 8’-9” ceiling height. The vaulted option is more dramatic, with exposed timbers and ceilings that are open to the ridge. The vaulted option may also include conditioned attic space for storage and mechanical equipment.
