Builder News

Brandywine Homes has acquired a prime piece of land in Garden Grove, CA, near The Block at Orange and an array other amenities, where it plans to build 20 single-family homes.


Brandywine, based in Irvine, purchased the land from six separate sellers, including the City of Garden Grove, for an undisclosed sum. The company plans to begin construction on the community, named Pomelo, this summer, with the first homes available in the second quarter of 2011. The acquisition highlights Brandywine’s unique position in the market.



At a time when most builders are still regrouping following the recession, family-owned Brandywine is moving quickly to bring new homes to Orange County. Since its inception in 1994, Brandywine has focused exclusively on creating small and midsize infill communities. Infill development is notoriously challenging, but Brandywine’s expertise in the infill arena has allowed it to thrive. “During the boom years, many builders pursued large developments in far-flung markets,” said Brett Whitehead, Brandywine’s president. “We stayed true to our strengths—building infill homes that truly reflect local demand—and as a result, we are healthy, well-funded and positioned for solid growth
