Grand Opening Celebrations This Saturday at TRI Pointe Homes' Ironhorse in Morgan Hill, Where Solar Is Standard

MORGAN HILL, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 10, 2012) - Bringing Northern California home buyers an enticing combination of small-town hospitality and easy access to Silicon Valley and the entire Bay Area, TRI Pointe Homes will celebrate the grand opening of Ironhorse in Morgan Hill this Saturday, August 11th, with the debut of their decorated model homes showcasing a collection of 3 stylish single-family floor plans with prices starting in the $600,000s.

Attendees will be entertained by fun activities, make your own ice cream dessert and refreshments while taking in the peaceful setting and touring the beautifully decorated model homes.

Impressively spacious and richly appointed, the homes range from approximately 2,162 to 2,672 square feet, including as many as five bedrooms and three baths. Most plans take on the added dimension of a versatile loft or optional extra bedroom, and two designs offer the cozy comfort of a traditional parlor.

The centerpiece of every residence is a wide-open great room that joins with a gourmet kitchen to create a free-flowing household activity center. Kitchen conveniences include granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, and in most plans, the kitchen is enhanced by a breakfast bar island that makes a handy spot for casual dining as well as food preparation and serving.

Ironhorse is also a model of today's latest home-building technology, beginning with SunPower® solar energy systems that save both energy and money. The homes also feature state-of-the-art wiring for high-speed computer connections, cable TV and telephone as well as such environmentally friendly advancements as Ply-Gem Low-E squared windows, tankless water heaters, dual-flush toilets, low-flow faucets and dual-zone heating and climate-controlled air conditioning systems with digital set-back thermostats.

Exteriors display the fine details of Craftsman, Traditional and Farmhouse-style architecture and covered front porches are included in most plans. In addition, finishing touches include handy upstairs laundry rooms and elegant master bedrooms with roomy walk-in closets, Kohler tubs and separate showers with frameless glass enclosures.

Ironhorse residents won't have to venture far outside their spacious new homes to get in touch with California the way it's always been. Just minutes away, take the family for boating, fishing, hiking, camping, horseback riding, bicycling and more at Anderson Lake County Park. The community is also close to the largest state park in Northern California -- Henry W. Coe State Park, where more than 87,000 acres of scenic terrain offer abundant opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, backpacking, camping, picnicking and horseback riding.

Ironhorse joins a growing number of TRI Pointe Homes communities throughout California. In Southern California, the company is currently building Sagebluff and Topazridge at Riverwalk Vista in Riverside, Los Arboles in Simi Valley, Candera in San Marcos and Tamarind Lane at Rosedale in Azusa. Ironhorse is TRI Pointe's second community in Northern California, following the successful grand opening of Chantrea at Silver Creek in San Jose.
