A limited opportunity of just 48 residences, three beautiful, two-story floorplans will range from approximately 2,209 to 2,542 square feet, with three to five bedrooms, 2.5 to three baths and two-car garages. The Branches will be surrounded by meandering streets and nestled in a tranquil corner of North Lake adjacent to Fallbrook Park; a single entrance will greet homeowners. Prices are anticipated to start from the $900,000s.
Homeowners at The Branches can dive into the good life right away, with immediate access to beach clubs, lagoons, tennis courts, parks and miles of trails. The newly improved Fallbrook Park and neighborhood schools within the top Irvine Unified School District are also within walking distance. A premium location near business, shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, as well as John Wayne Airport will offer an important benefit for buyers with busy lifestyles.
Willow Bend, an intimate enclave of just 58 residences, will reflect California Ranch and Craftsman exterior styles. The only new home offering of this size to be built for 25 years in University Park, Willow Bend will offer three beautiful, two-story floorplans from approximately 2,209 to 2,556 square feet, with three to five bedrooms, 2.5 to three baths and two-car garages. Prices are anticipated to start from the $900,000s.
Residents of Willow Bend will have access to the acclaimed Irvine Unified School District, a priority for many families. Students will attend the highly ranked University High School, which was listed among the top 10 in Newsweek's ranking of the nation's Best High Schools in 2011; Willow Bend is also located near University of California, Irvine. Homeowners will be within easy reach of William R. Mason Regional Park, a 345-acre natural sanctuary with its own nine-acre lake, biking paths, model boat sailing and wilderness hiking area. Nearby community parks have opportunities for soccer, tennis, sand volleyball and picnicking; golf enthusiasts can hit the links at nearby Rancho San Joaquin or Strawberry Farms Golf Clubs. Two nearby retail centers offer convenient shopping and Willow Bend will be just minutes away from Fashion Island and Corona Del Mar, the 405 Freeway and Orange County's major business and leisure destinations.
The coveted Irvine settings of The Branches and Willow Bend will reinforce to future buyers the exceptional lifestyle they will experience as residents here -- the city of Irvine was ranked sixth by CNN Money as one of America's best small cities, with 44 miles of bike trails, 20,000 acres of parks and preserves, and a beach 10 miles away. CNN Money noted in a recent article that "Thanks to smart planning, this big city can feel surprisingly small. The 40-year-old community is divided into 40 'villages,' and a minimum of five acres of park space is added for every 1,000 newcomers."
