Traffic was brisk as Indigo at McMillin Lomas Verdes in Chula Vista celebrated its grand opening, giving homebuyers their first glimpse of the neighborhood’s distinctive architecture and elegant interior detailing. Now McMillin is further enriching the value for homebuyers through its McMillin Green Program, which will provide an energy-saving solar power system with every home purchase at Indigo.

“The McMillin Green Program offers beautifully designed homes that run on clean, renewable energy from the sun,” said Guy Asaro, president of McMillin Homes. “By integrating solar energy systems into the design of the home, homeowners will immediately see lower energy bills. With SolarCity’s SolarLease, homeowners can pay less for clean power than they would otherwise pay for electricity from the power company. SolarCity’s full service approach includes ongoing system monitoring, maintenance service for the 20 year life of the lease, and a money-back performance guarantee for the production of the system.”

Priced from the $400,000s, the homes at Indigo are marked by McMillin’s discerning craftsmanship and attention to detail. The neighborhood -- which will have 85 homes at completion -- is located in McMillin Lomas Verdes, known for its quality of life, natural beauty and proximity to excellent schools.

Indigo’s expansive, family-friendly floor plans range from 2,503 to 2,984 square feet with three to six bedrooms, three to four baths, and roomy two- or three-car garages -- perfect for gatherings and entertaining. Home exterior options include Spanish, Spanish colonial and craftsman architectural styles.

Interior highlights include family entertainment rooms, gourmet kitchen islands and spacious master bedroom suites. Indigo also offers generous storage capacity, energy saving features and an outstanding option collection.

A haven for recreational enthusiasts, Indigo residents enjoy complimentary membership in the exclusive Enclave Swim Club. Homeowners can also bask in the community’s 14 acres of park space. To make living even easier, Indigo is located close to a broad array of shopping, dining and recreational options and is only a short drive to downtown San Diego.

“We are proud of our accomplishments over the last five decades,” said Asaro. “Indigo exemplifies the quality and value we will continue to provide in our communities.”
