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.

Kensington is in Carlsbad, just east of Palomar Airport. You would think the planes going overhead was loud, but I hardly heard any traffic when I was there. Kensington is within walking distance of grocery stores like Statebrothers, Trader Joe's, and Sprouts. It's also near popular restaurants like Board & Brew, Panini Grill, WR Kitchen & Bar, Mendocino Farms, and Richard Walker's Pancake House. Kensington is built by Shea Homes, a builder with one of the best reputations in the business for producing unique and attractive homes. Kensington is no exception. When it comes to townhomes, almost everything at Kensington is unique and well planned. Upon walking to the model homes, you'll pass by one of the putting greens available to the residents. The front doors have a single narrow glass window and a smart deadbolt. The floorplans are open, with minimal walls dividing rooms. My favorite floorplan is plan 2. The living room has a ceiling open to the third floor, giving it a less closed-in feeling that most townhomes provide. On the flip side, the patio size is small, especially with the HVAC unit. Also, solar is not included, which I feel should always be included when purchasing a new home, especially in this price range.
