Mello-Roos is an additional cost to pay for community improvements like schools and streets etc., applied to regular property taxes for a set period between 20 to 40 years. The IRS typically doesn't allow you to write Mello-Roos off as you would with property taxes, so make sure you know the yearly cost before purchasing; they can be as high as $600 per month.
Solar should be included; builders pay bulk pricing for solar. Yes, they work it into the new home price, but it usually makes little noticeable difference to the monthly mortgage payment compared to your two to six hundred dollar electric bill.

Cypress offers three different exterior elevations: the Santa Barbara, Tuscan, and California Craftsman. All homes are three levels, and select floorplans offer rooftop decks with views of the hillsides and 78 freeway. Rooftop decks are neat, but keep in mind that they tend to have more leaks than regular roofs. Also, views are subjective; I think a rooftop deck is best for locations with an ocean view. I would have instead had a more massive yard or at least more room between the homes. These homes are so close together and tall; they can easily be mistaken for a town-home. Don't get me wrong, these homes are beautiful, especially on the inside, and they draw you in, but for the price and location so close to the freeway, they may be priced a little high for what you get. The preserve does that a great recreation center that includes a beach entry pool, workout center, park, playgrounds, spa, BBQs, and outdoor fire-pits.
