Tour Newcastle Home’s newest model in Island Park Estates, located yards away from the northern edge of Mustang Island in Corpus Christi, and experience what it would be like to wake up every morning to breathtaking ocean views of the Gulf of Mexico in South Texas with its almost year-round beach-friendly weather and blue skies.
What makes this home unique is not what we would expect as we look at the beach home’s majestic exterior of 4 stories. The multi-story floorplan with plenty of living space and all the conveniences of modern living, including cozy fireplaces, a handy elevator, and many other amenities that come with an electricity-powered, modern design home are also not what make this home unique.
What sets this home apart is that it is the first home in the Coastal Bend area of South Texas to be certified as a Zero Energy Ready Home (ZERH) once it is completed. The ZERH program is administered by the Department of Energy and represents the nation’s most stringent energy-efficiency requirements for certification. See page___ to find out more about Newcastle Homes and the ZERH program. Visit energy.gov and find out how a home certified as ZERH when connected to sustainable, renewable systems—like solar panels—can reduce the electricity bill to zero.
It is no surprise that a Zero Energy Ready Home is considered to be the home of the future, and it should be no surprise, either, that as a Parade of Homes winner of most, if not all, of the awards in its category in previous Parades, this Newcastle home should be recognized this Parade year for being on the cutting edge of the home-building industry—not just for its exterior and interior beauty, but for its focus on what is best for the homebuyer and our planet.
