How To Arrange Your Living Room Furniture

June 18th, 2018

Selecting furniture makes your house uniquely yours. The colors and styles express your personality, and it is usually easy for you to recognize “your” furniture. You will say or think, “That’s IT!’ If you love it and it is within your budget and will hold up under your family’s use, you should buy it. Whether you are buying a few new pieces or a room full of new furniture, think about your family, not “design.” But now that you own it – or just moved it – where should you put it? Moving furniture around until it “looks right” can take days and create family friction. Here are a few suggestions to make furniture placement easier on your family.

In the living room, focus on your family’s comfort and on the comfort of your guests: Read More >

Surprise Dad with A Man Cave for Father’s Day in a Brandywine Home

June 11th, 2018

There are a million reasons to get dad his own man cave on Father’s Day. Maybe it’s because he needs a place to chill out at the end of a hard work day. Or after taking care of you and the kids all day, he wants to wind down in his own space. But the best reason of all is that you love him, and you want to take care of him because of all the care he’s given you.

Presenting the cave
Ordinarily, the best time to present your Father’s Day gift is during the day itself. You’d walk dad down the hall, open the door and enjoy his surprise at the well-designed room. But this deprives him of one of the main pleasures of a man cave: he gets to design it himself. Read More >

Brandywine Homes to Hold Grand Opening at Bradbury, a Gated Community in La Puente, Calif., on Saturday, June 9

June 7th, 2018

New Neighborhood Located 20 Miles East of L.A. Helps Ease Housing Shortage with 45 New Single-Family Homes 

LA PUENTE, Calif. Brandywine Homes will hold a grand opening at Bradbury, a new infill community in La Puente offering 45 single-family detached homes on 3.87 acres, on Saturday, June 9. Interested home buyers are invited to view the model homes from 10am to 6pm.

“With easy access to all the urban amenities of Los Angeles and the serenity and safety of a gated community, Bradbury is the perfect choice for young professionals and families,” said Dave Barisic, principal in charge of sales and marketing at Brandywine Homes, a pioneer of infill development in Southern California. “We’re excited to show homebuyers these beautiful, timeless and low-maintenance new homes.”

Bradbury is located at 747 Del Valle Avenue. The gated community, which includes a community recreation area, is offering two-story homes with three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

These stylish residences are designed with Spanish, Craftsman and Farmhouse architecture, and range in size from 1,843 to 2,087 square feet on 2,500-square-foot lots. The homes have great rooms, lofts, private yards, patios and two-car garages. The gourmet kitchens feature large islands with breakfast bars, and spacious master suites include large soaking tubs and walk-in closets.

La Puente, an up-and-coming city with a population of about 40,000, has very limited housing stock. The last new home housing tract was built almost 40 years ago, according to city officials. Close to Puente Hills Mall, Mt. San Antonio College, California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, the Dwight D. Eisenhower Golf Course and more, Bradbury offers convenient access to the 60, the 605 and the 10 freeways.

“Bradbury offers families a very rare opportunity to own a home in La Puente, which is consistently named one of California’s safest places to live,” Barisic said. “We don’t expect these homes to stay on the market for long.”

Interested homebuyers can receive more information about Bradbury here.

Summer Moving Tips for Brandywine Homes

June 4th, 2018


With the kids out of school, longer daylight hours and excellent weather, summer excels as the most popular time to move. If you’re planning to change homes at this time of year, check out these tips to make everything go smoother.

1. Pick the right time
Summer can be the worst time of the year to move. Because everybody is doing it during the season, scheduling can be difficult, especially at the last minute. Prices are at their highest because demand is at the greatest. If you can possibly move outside of summer, you’ll get lower prices and a wider range of movers and times to pick from.

If you must move during the hottest season, plan at least six to eight weeks in advance or more. Don’t move during major holidays, such as the Fourth of July, during any weekend or on the first or last days of the month. Ask the moving company when their least busy days and times are so you can schedule your transfer then. Read More >
