Yorba Linda just received an added dose of luxury as the city’s newest townhome community recently held a grand opening. Developer Brandywine Homes unveiled its latest completed residential project in Orange County, adding a 51-unit urban infill community in the proximity of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum.

Brandywine only recently announced the development of another townhome community in Norwalk back in May, confirming its L.A.-area expansion strategy. The company also has two other communities lined up in Yorba Linda.

The 5.1-acre Covington luxury community is located near Yorba Linda Boulevard and Blair Street, in the affluent Orange County suburb. The townhomes range in size between 1,842 and 2,100 square feet of space and feature a craftsman-style design, provided by Pate SmeallArchitects. The community’s placement, in the vicinity of the 91 freeway, means that residents gain quick access to venues such as Angel Stadium, Honda Center, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Disneyland.

Unit features include efficient tankless water heaters, recessed lighting, double-strength glass windows, state-of-the-art communication and networking, as well as storage space and fully-equipped kitchens.

Residents at Covington have access to a common amenity package that includes a pool, rec center, as well as a barbecue and gathering area. Its position within the Placentia-Yorba Lind Unified School District also proves to be a big selling point for the Covington. The community is rapidly becoming a success, with twelve of the seventeen homes part of Phase 1 have already been either sold or reserved.
