Hampton Will Feature Four Bedrooms, Priced in Low- to Mid-$600,000s

IRVINE, CA – July 25, 2011 – A church needing money to expand and a developer eager to build in Buena Park have found common ground.

Brandywine Homes has purchased a 2.2 acre site at 8901 Holder St. in Buena Park from Bethel Lutheran Church, which will use the sale’s proceeds to expand its facilities.

Brandywine will build an 18-home community named Hampton on the site, featuring two-story homes whose floor plans offer nearly 2,400 and 2,600 square feet.

“It works for us and works for them,” said Brett Whitehead, president of Brandywine Homes, which has become one of Southern California’s most successful builders by creating small and mid-sized infill communities. “We’ve been looking for the right project in Buena Park for 10 years. The city has been great to work with. It’s an outstanding location in a family-oriented community known for its schools.”

Hampton is less than two miles from the prestigious Oxford Academy, in Cypress, recently honored as a 2001 California Distinguished School.
