McStain To Build Largest Solar Homes Development in Colorado


Late last week, McStain Neighborhoods announced intentions to build the largest solar neighborhood in Colorado.  The neighborhood development, known as Bradburn Village, will have 42 solar-electric homes available for sale in early Spring 2007.  From what I understand, McStain builds their homes to Energy Star certification, so going with the solar option is a nice added feature.  With prices starting in the upper 400s, these two-story homes will range in size from roughly 2,446 to 2,842 sq.  Bradburn Village is located off 120th Avenue, between Federal and Sheridan boulevards.

McStain isn’t like your average builder or developer, either.  For instance, here’s their mission:  "To create homes and neighborhoods that stand the test of time, that grow in beauty and value, that help maintain the environment and lifestyle that make Colorado so special."  They test and certify 100% of their homes, and I just get the feeling that a McStain home will be a damn good home.

    While I laud this, and am on the list to purchase [we will see what comes out of the ground, when, and for how much], McStain is also known for building 6,000 square foot $850,000 McMansions. I am dubious of their claim of $400,000. I assume that will be one townhouse unit – with the rest starting in the $700’s like much of Bradburn Village. We will see.

    We’ve only found small McStains. In Platt Park, they are building duplex’s to keep with the original architecture in the area (2400 sq ft.) We’re actually looking a 3000 sq ft with a base of 500, but it’s the largest model they’re offering.
