A new luxury gated community in the South West Valley by Ashton Woods Homes

Ashton Woods Homes, a premiere builder of eco-friendly and energy efficient new homes, today announced that they will be opening their new San Rafael at Portales community in the Phoenix area this summer.

Headquartered in Atlanta Georgia, Ashton Woods builds high-performance new homes in growth communities in Phoenix, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Raleigh, Orlando and Tampa. Close to jobs, shopping and transportation corridors, Ashton Woods effectively balances healthy-house features with energy efficiency in their Power House Green homes – which could save homeowners as much as 45% per year on utility bills.

The San Rafael at Portales community in the South West Valley area is a new luxury gated community that offers new home buyers unique choices in Spanish Colonial, Ranch, Spanish Monterey and Tuscan style homes from 2,400 - 4,420 square feet floor plans. San Rafael homeowners can enjoy golf, hiking, biking, horseback riding and picnicking in the Sierra Estrella and White Tank Mountain areas.

Portales is also centrally located; close to nearby Phoenix International Raceway, Wildlife World Zoo, Goodyear Ballpark and Recreational Center (which just happens to be spring training home to the Cleveland Indians and the Cincinnati Reds).

With a growing employment base nearby, Goodyear is known as the retail hub of the Southwest Valley and was also recognized as one of the “Most livable cities in America” in 2008.

The new Portales eco-friendly homes – one or two story models – are Energy Star and Environments For Living (EFL) compliant. This assures homeowners with savings as much as 45% on their annual utility bills.

Homes in San Rafael will begin pre-selling this summer, starting in $250’s, before the official grand opening in July 2010.
