This Newcastle Home located in the resort-style community of Trade Winds in Padre Island is like an island retreat within an island. The home features an efficiently designed floorplan optimized to provide an accommodating space of 5 bedrooms along with a private office space for a productive atmosphere.
The exterior of the home is unique in that it includes a six-foot stucco privacy fence around most of the front yard for a secluded and relaxing courtyard space in front of the home. Visitors to the home will be greeted at the front of this privacy fence by a shingle-covered shade canopy, with vine-covered columns and a double-door entrance located closer to the street.
Inside the home, the unusual amenities continue with an unexpected hanging garden, a welcoming secondary den, a spa-like Master bathroom, and a beautiful courtyard with pavestone accents. The European-style kitchen and dining area is an inviting magnet for homeowners and visitors to appreciate.
True to the reputation of a Newcastle home, this home promises no less. Newcastle Homes has a history of being consistently recognized by the judges of the Parade of Homes’ competitions in the Coastal Bend—almost always winning all or most of the awards in the company’s competing categories. And while most awards—except for the award for the most Energy Efficient or most Green home—are given mainly by what the judges can visually see and evaluate, the thing to remember about a Newcastle home is that what can be seen by the judges (and home shoppers) is only part of the story—and not the best part.
The best part of a Newcastle home is the quality construction that is behind the walls. The home at 15530 Finestere, for example, was certified as ENERGY STAR®; BUILT TO SAVE™; and Coastal Bend GreenBuilt. What this means to the homebuyer is not only the enjoyment of having lower utility bills and having more money to spend on the family, but, most importantly, the enjoyment of things that can be felt and appreciated every day—like better indoor air quality, relaxing comfort, even temperatures from room to room, and durable construction with less maintenance. The homeowner will rest easily with the peace of mind of knowing there is a written guarantee of the home’s certifications from a third-party RESNET certified inspector that will enhance the resale value of the home should the owner decide to sell in the future.
