Brandywine Homes

NORWALK, CA—Brandywine Homes has announced plans for its second townhome project in the L.A. area this year. The developer purchased a two-acre parcel in Norwalk, CA, to build the Sunstone, a 31-townhome community. It plans to break ground on the development this month, and will bring the for-sale homes to market in September of this year. The community will be ready for move-in in March 2016.

“Norwalk is an ideal place for this new home community because of its centralized location to job centers in both Orange and L.A. Counties, its proximity to freeways and its access to great shopping and local schools,” Dave Barisic, VP of sales and marketing at Brandywine Homes, tells about the company’s attraction to the area. Brandywine is also under construction on a townhome community in Arcadia, CA. That community sits on just under an acre of land, and will have 17 three-story townhomes. The developer is also opened Seabright, a townhome community in Costa Mesa in Orange County, earlier this year.

Located at 1009 Pioneer Blvd. in Norwalk, the Sunstone will be a gated community on the former site of a school building. It has convenient access to four freeways and two metro lines. The two-story townhomes will be a mix of two- and three-bedroom homes ranging in size from 1,100 square feet to 1,462 square feet, and will have granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a two-car garage. The community will also feature play equipment, barbecue grills, picnic tables and close proximity to parks, shopping and restaurants.

“Townhomes are traditionally a little more affordable than single family detached homes and that is what many homebuyers are searching for these days—affordable new home options in areas they want to live in,” says Barisic. “Norwalk is one of those places due to its centralized location and local amenities.” Brandywine is not alone. This year, a handful of developers have launched townhomes developments in the greater L.A. area as an alternative to single-family housing. The projects include City Ventures’ 144-townhome community in Glendora, CA, and Tri Pointe Properties116-townhome community in Oxnard.
