YORBA LINDA, CA—Brandywine Homes is set to break ground this month on Provence, a 3.24-acre community with 28 single-family homes located at 5050 Richfield Rd. here. Homes are expected to go on the market in November 2015, with development expected to be complete in May 2016.

The urban-infill community, located near the Richard Nixon Library and Museum, is being built on a site that once held older single-family homes; the suburb, described as affluent, has seen a population increase of 13% since 2000.

The new development will include a tot lot, a community park and ample parking, with 3.5 parking spaces per home. The three- and four-bedroom homes will range in size from 1,800 square feet to 2,000 square feet.

According to Dave Barisic, VP of sales and marketing at Brandywine, “Yorba Linda is a city where it is common for several generations of the same family to reside, and we are excited to be providing those families with additional options when carrying on that tradition.”

Barisic tells GlobeSt.com, “Provence is unique in this market because of the approach that was taken in its design. Brandywine worked with surrounding homeowners and city staff to create a community that is both architecturally and aesthetically compatible with the surrounding neighborhoods, all of which have been around for decades. In doing so, we have given local homebuyers who want to continue to live in their home town a ‘new-home’ option, without having to relocate their family to one of the distant master plans.” Provence is located near Covington, another Brandywine infill community with 51 townhomes that is expected to be complete in Spring 2016.

As GlobeSt.com reported in December 2013, at that time Brandywine hadpurchased a 5.1-acre urban-infill community with the intention of building 51 townhomes near Yorba Linda Blvd. and Blair St. The community, designed by Theron Pate of Pate Smeall Architects to blend in with the existing neighborhood, will include townhomes with gourmet kitchens, granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances. Residents will have access to common amenities including a recreation center, a community meeting room and a pool.

By MARK MUELLER

Orange County’s largest masterplanned developments are driving a bulk of the recent new-home sales in the region, but plenty of builders are also finding success buying land for residential projects off the beaten path.

Half of the county’s top 30 builders by sales last year generated at least a portion of their 2014 sales from infill land sites in existing urban communities where land has been dedicated to new uses, according to Business Journal data (see list, page 20).

Notable entries on this year’s list include Brandywine Homes, No. 17 on the list, an Irvine-based builder that specializes in infill development and has projects moving ahead in land-constrained markets, such as Yorba Linda and Costa Mesa.

Likewise, Irvine-based City Ventures Inc., No. 14, a 6-year-old builder whose business strategy embraces taking on Read More >

The city’s population has grown by 13 percent, to 66,735, since 2000.

According to the National Association of Home Builders’ formula to determine the local impact of single-family housing in typical metro areas, adding 28 single-family homes will generate $6.2 million in local income, $616,000 in taxes and other revenue for local governments and 91 local jobs.

Most people consider the practical things when they’re looking at Orange County homes for sale.  For example, you’ll probably make sure that the home is big enough for you and your family’s needs.  You’ll also make sure it’s located in a safe, clean neighborhood with as many amenities located close by as possible.

Orange County Homes: Housing Shortage May Force Developers to be Creative

February 16th, 2015

Brandywine Homes - Griffin

Recently, an article in the Orange County Register predicted a complicated future when it comes to Orange County homes. It seems the county is already facing a housing shortage of 30,000 to 60,000 homes, yet the area is anticipated to grow by 350,000 people over the next 25 years. If this number holds up, this means that an additional 143,000 homes will be needed in the region.

The dilemma may force developers to get creative, the article notes. Micro apartments — those as small as 250 square feet — in high rise buildings may provide a partial solution to the shortage. Currently 65 percent of all building permits in Orange County have been for high density housing projects, such as apartments and condos, instead of single-family dwellings and that trend is expected to continue.

Another way to address the shortage Read More >
