Brandywine Homes Acquires Land For New Homes


Brandywire Homes, a Southern California infill developer and homebuilder, has acquired a 2.95-acre site in Fountain Valley where it plans to build 16 homes over the next 18 months. The single-family detached home community of Lemongrass will be built on the site of a church. “This is a great development for Brandywine because it fills a void in the local market and Fountain Valley is a very desirable place to live,” said Brett Whitehead, president of Brandywine Homes, which is based in Irvine, Calif. “There is virtually no new home activity in Fountain Valley even though the demand for housing has been proven,” he said. “It also fits nicely into our business plan because, although it is relatively small, it expands our reach into the coastal communities of Southern California.” Lemongrass homes will feature three floor plans, either one- or two-story and ranging in size from 2,600 square feet to 3,600 square feet. The homes will have up to five bedrooms, three or four bathrooms and three-car garages. Lot sizes are relatively spacious for the coastal area, starting at just under 7,000 square feet. The homes, say Brandywine, are designed for “move-up” buyers who may have outgrown their older Fountain Valley home or simply want something a little newer with modern upgrades
