Brandywine Homes to Build 10-Acre Community Offering 28 Single-Family Homes in San Dimas, Calif.

Saddle Creek Will Offer Much-Needed Housing in Underserved San Gabriel Valley  

SAN DIMAS, Calif. – June 2, 2017 – Following an entitlement process that took more than three years, Saddle Creek 28 Group, a subsidiary of Brandywine Homes, has acquired a 10-acre site entitled for 28 single-family homes in San Dimas, Calif. Saddle Creek is scheduled to break ground later this year.

“Saddle Creek is the first significant new-home neighborhood to be approved by the City of San Dimas in years,” said Dave Barisic, principal in charge of sales and marketing for Brandywine Homes, a pioneer of infill development in Southern California. “We hope to bring back families who have moved out of the area because of the lack of new housing opportunities in the San Gabriel Valley.”

The detached, single-family, one- and two-story homes at Saddle Creek will range from approximately 2,700 to 3,700 square feet and feature designer finishes, gourmet kitchens and master suites.

“Finding a home in this area with lot sizes from 7,500 to 13,100 is practically unheard of,” Barisic said. “The homes will feature a 12-foot-wide side yard that can accommodate an RV or a large boat, which you don’t see in new homes these days.”

Located in eastern San Gabriel Valley and surrounded by the scenic San Gabriel Mountains, San Dimas is a tight-knit community with excellent parks and recreational facilities and public schools. Claremont Colleges, Cal Poly Pomona and the University of La Verne are nearby, and Los Angeles is a 30-minute drive.

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 $8 million in local income, $1 million in taxes and other revenue for local governments and 110 local jobs.
