Irvine, CA (PressExposure) August 27, 2012 -- Irvine was recently named one of Money magazine's "10 Best Places to Live" in the United States and with three Taylor Morrison communities available, the time has never been better to move to one of Orange County's best cities.
According to Taylor Morrison officials, it's no surprise that Irvine was named this August as one of the 10 best places to live in the United States by Money magazine. With plenty of open space, excellent schools, convenient shopping areas and communities like Taylor Morrison's Las Colinas, Las Ventanas and Esplanade, it's easy to see why Irvine ranks so high on the magazine's list.
"Irvine has all of the amenities that homebuyers demand from the best neighborhoods," said Phil Bodem, president of Taylor Morrison's Southern California division. "There are strong job opportunities in Orange County, exceptional schools for families and plenty of recreational and shopping opportunities to enhance any lifestyle."
Taylor Morrison recognized the advantages of Irvine more than two decades ago and has been delivering well thought out communities to discriminating homebuyers ever since.
Currently, southern Californians have three select communities - Las Colinas, Las Ventanas and Esplanade - to choose from in the Villages of Irvine, where open space is plentiful and scenic views surround the area.
Las Colinas has been a favorite of homebuyers in Orange County, as evidenced by only one remaining home in the high-end Taylor Morrison community. Nestled against the backdrop of the Cleveland National Forest, Las Colinas is the epitome of outstanding craftsmanship, with stunning Santa Barbara and Monterey exteriors and living accommodations that offer up to five bedrooms and bathrooms.
Homebuyers still have an opportunity to call Las Colinas home, with the sought-after two-story Residence One available, offering four bedrooms, four baths, upgraded fruitwood cabinetry, included GE stainless steel appliances, granite in the home's kitchen and master bath and upgraded flooring with select window treatments.
To schedule an appointment to view this remaining residence, which includes more than $80,000 worth of upgrades, please call (949) 767-7935.
At Las Ventanas, located in the Irvine village of Portola Springs, the views of the Loma Ridge are plentiful and the style and functionality of the homes are without peer. Three open and innovative floor plans are available with the choice of Santa Barbara, Monterey or formal Spanish exteriors. Inside, homebuyers discover three to five bedrooms in floor plans that range from 1,871 to 2,304 square feet. Prices start in the $630,000s for the final phase of Las Ventanas. For more information, please call (949) 748-3975.
Finally, the California homebuilder's Esplanade neighborhood offers 1,298 to 2,074 square feet of living space in stylish town homes that start in the $390,000s and feature Spanish and Santa Barbara inspired architecture.
With a new phase recently released, homebuyers are discovering spacious courtyards and balconies that offer enjoyable indoor-outdoor living and encourage the California lifestyle to be experienced at its fullest. The popular shopping destinations and restaurants of Woodbury Town Center are also within walking distance. To find out more about Esplanade, please call (949) 559-3656.
"Our communities truly offer the styles of living that our customers have asked for and, I'm happy to say, we've delivered," Bodem said. "Irvine truly is one of the best places to live in the United States."
