YORBA LINDA, CA—Brandywine Homes is set to break ground this month on Provence, a 3.24-acre community with 28 single-family homes located at 5050 Richfield Rd. here. Homes are expected to go on the market in November 2015, with development expected to be complete in May 2016.

The urban-infill community, located near the Richard Nixon Library and Museum, is being built on a site that once held older single-family homes; the suburb, described as affluent, has seen a population increase of 13% since 2000.

The new development will include a tot lot, a community park and ample parking, with 3.5 parking spaces per home. The three- and four-bedroom homes will range in size from 1,800 square feet to 2,000 square feet.

According to Dave Barisic, VP of sales and marketing at Brandywine, “Yorba Linda is a city where it is common for several generations of the same family to reside, and we are excited to be providing those families with additional options when carrying on that tradition.”

Barisic tells, “Provence is unique in this market because of the approach that was taken in its design. Brandywine worked with surrounding homeowners and city staff to create a community that is both architecturally and aesthetically compatible with the surrounding neighborhoods, all of which have been around for decades. In doing so, we have given local homebuyers who want to continue to live in their home town a ‘new-home’ option, without having to relocate their family to one of the distant master plans.” Provence is located near Covington, another Brandywine infill community with 51 townhomes that is expected to be complete in Spring 2016.

As reported in December 2013, at that time Brandywine hadpurchased a 5.1-acre urban-infill community with the intention of building 51 townhomes near Yorba Linda Blvd. and Blair St. The community, designed by Theron Pate of Pate Smeall Architects to blend in with the existing neighborhood, will include townhomes with gourmet kitchens, granite countertops and stainless-steel appliances. Residents will have access to common amenities including a recreation center, a community meeting room and a pool.
