The Scoop with McStain in Painted Prairie

Come take a tour of the stunning McStain Homes Showcase floor plan in the community of Painted Prairie, in Aurora, Colorado. McStain Neighborhoods is one of five builders in the Painted Prairie neighborhood. 

If you’re looking for a beautiful, functional, and amazingly energy-efficient single-family home, McStain Homes is a great choice. The Showcase floor plan includes 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, loft, study, attached 2-car garage and is 2,462 square feet above. The basement is an additional 755 square feet which can be finished by McStain for a lot less than hiring a third-party contractor to finish the basement. 

One of the biggest draws to McStain Homes are they are zero energy ready homes!  Every appliance, building material, everything is a high-performance energy star rated-item!  Also, all the homes are pre-wired for solar panels should you choose to have no electricity cost at all!  

On top of the stunning included features, top-of-the line building materials and more, the floor plans of the McStain homes are also something to be viewed.

“It’s about you and your family’s well-being.  The clean air you breath, the comfort you enjoy and your peace-of-mind.  Our goal is very simple…be well.” – McStain Neighborhoods

My favorite features of the home are the included upgrades such as the luxury plank flooring throughout the main level, the 12×12 Vinyl tiles on the bathroom floors, Nest camera with doorbell and Nest thermostat, and the 42″ custom cabinets. The McStain Painted Prairie website is fantastic resource to estimate what your total cost will be.  You can choose your finishes, upgrades, finished basement, etc., and get a very close estimate to what it will cost to build your dream home!  I put every single upgrade I could find on the Showcase model and for absolutely every upgrade you can include the final price was $644,680 (See that design HERE).  To give you an idea, currently in the Denver/Aurora market the average single family home is $615,000.  This McStain home with every single feature and upgrade available is about $30k more – the likelihood of choosing every single finish is pretty slim, so I’m here to help you with that!

I enjoy helping buyers decide what is a worth-while and best return on investment upgrade on their new build homes.  To find out more about my services and how I can help you, please check out my website,  My services include:  assistance with inspections, attending all builder meetings, assisting with all inspections, FREE 3D pre-drywall tour for you to keep for future projects, attorney-reviewed contract expertise to make sure you have every single question answered about the contract, and expertise and experience (MY SERVICES ARE ABSOLUTELY FREE TO YOU!).
