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.
