Sales have begun at the Brandywine Homes Lemongrass community in Fountain Valley. Five of the sixteen single-family, detached residences have already been sold in the community since its grand opening on Dec. 10. The two-day celebration for Lemongrass attracted more than 800 people from the community.

“We had amazing interest in this community even before we opened it. There were about 250 people on the interest list solely off a sign on the property,” said Dave Barisic, Brandywine’s vice president of sales and marketing.

The two single-story models were the first to be sold. One- and two-story models will still be available in the area, and are currently under construction on a 2.95-acre site at 18110 Magnolia St. The homes feature unique Craftsman and Mission architecture, up to five bedrooms, three or four bathrooms and three-car garages.

“Lemongrass is the only new home development in Fountain Valley and there’s a big demand for new homes,” said Steve Ehle, Lemongrass sales coordinator. “Fountain Valley is a popular place to live and our average lot size of about 7,000 square feet is very attractive. We’re centrally located, just three miles to the beach and a mile-and-a-half from the 405, and the local schools are very good.”
