Castella, a New 21-Townhome Neighborhood in Norwalk, Calif., Sells Out in Less Than Eight Months

Homebuyers Snap Up Rare Entry-Level Housing in Underserved Area 

NORWALK, Calif. – March 15, 2018 – Brandywine Homes announced today all 21 townhomes have been sold at Castella, a new residential community near the intersection of Studebaker and Excelsior in Norwalk, Calif., less than eight months after it opened. 

“Opportunities to own brand new townhomes in the L.A. area are very difficult to come by, so we knew these wouldn’t stay on the market for long,” said Dave Barisic, principal in charge of sales and marketing at Brandywine Homes, a pioneer of infill development in Southern California. “The quality of craftsmanship and versatility of these homes would exceed expectations in any market, but at this wonderfully convenient location, this neighborhood wins on all fronts.”  

Castella offered two- and three-bedroom French and Craftsman townhomes ranging from 1,108 to 1,491 square feet with open floor plans, pre-wired security systems and private outdoor spaces, ranging in price from $430,000 to $499,000. The neighborhood includes six two-story buildings with 64 parking spaces (42 in garages) and a covered common patio with barbecue grills. A monument sign marks the main entry at 11042 Excelsior Drive. 

Close to Interstate 5 and Interstate 605, the community offers easy access to both Los Angeles and Orange County. It is near major job sites and within walking distance of elementary and middle schools. The Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts, Cerritos Mall and Knott’s Berry Farm are nearby. 

Castella is Brandywine’s third development in Norwalk. All 16 townhomes at Citrine, which is about half a mile away from Castella, and all 31 homes at Sunstone have been sold.
