Cascada at Monterra has energy saving courtyard homes

Sales are moving briskly as the word spreads about Minto’s new Courtyard Homes at Cascada, the brand-new, gated community at Monterra, in Cooper City.

Cascada features two- and three-bedroom courtyard homes with two-car garages, priced from the low $200,000s. And for a limited time, buyers can save up to $10,000 towards closing costs on select homes, when using HomeBuyers Financial and Founders title for the closing, a spokesperson for the community says.

Though just recently opened, Cascada is already the proud recipient of two awards – the Aurora Award for Best Energy Efficient Home, from the Southeast Building Conference; and the PRISM Gold Award for Pre-Construction Architecture, from the Gold Coast Builders Association, the spokesperson says.

Cascada offers modern Santa Barbara and Palm Beach-style architecture, appointed with covered patios and balconies. The innovative interiors feature wide-open living spaces, spacious kitchens and bedrooms, and luxurious baths.

Besides a premier Cooper City location close to top-rated schools and convenient to shopping, services and transportation, Cascada offers a pool and cabana, as well as access to Monterra’s spectacular club and recreation facility, including a state-of-the-art fitness center, banquet room with prep kitchen, and resort-style pool. The private, lushly landscaped lakefront neighborhood features numerous parks and trails with breathtaking vistas.

Minto brings more than half a century of award-winning quality, service, design and innovation to the exquisite new neighborhood of Cascada. The first to be introduced under Minto’s new mintoblue? label, Cascada at Monterra sets a new standard for “green” living, says the spokesperson.

Model homes have been designed and constructed to meet the rigorous standards of the following five agencies for certification – LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design); Energy Star Homes; FPL BuildSmart; NAHB Green (National Association of Home Builders National Green Building Certification Program); and FGCB (Florida Green Building Coalition) – and homebuyers will have the opportunity to purchase homes built to those same specifications, says the spokesperson.

Minto has established superior parameters for energy performance, health and sustainability with its sites and homes. This means increased savings and better living for you.

Minto’s unique MasterCare 10-Step Quality Assurance Program ensures that the home buying experience at Cascada will make everything about buying a new home thoroughly enjoyable, not just at the time of purchase, but for all the years you live at Cascada.
