Since this neighborhood opened, many renters in nearby apartments have become homeowners at Ainsley Park. Tour the models now to choose a favorite floorplan or log on to for more information on this William Lyon Homes collection.

"Everyone has a different idea of just the right floorplan for their individual lifestyle. Ainsley Park's unique architectural designs continue to impress buyers who to stay away from the ordinary and for the extraordinary within a well established community," said Lesley Pennington, Director of Sales for William Lyon Homes. "Each floorplan is different and may include dramatic vaulted ceilings and fabulous great rooms, as well as private backyards and charming courtyards for outdoor dining. The neighborhood's Residence One is quite popular among buyers who prefer a flowing family room, kitchen configuration that also includes an informal dining room. Homebuyers whose wish list is focused on a comfortable great room that is traditionally the centerpiece of daily activities are generating strong demand for the Residence Two. This Ainsley Park design also features a private courtyard adjacent to the great room, so there is a wonderful sense of indoor/outdoor living."

"Ainsley Park's Residence Three has many desirable features, including a first-floor master bedroom. This layout is a great fit for a family with teenagers who can have the secondary bedrooms upstairs, as well as mature couples who prefer that their bedroom is located downstairs. An upstairs tech study is another popular spot for this floorplan, because it offers a dedicated space for the family computer, homework and taking care of household paperwork. The Residence Four, the neighborhood's largest floorplan, gives buyers the flexibility to transform the upstairs bonus room into a fifth bedroom, while the lavish master bedroom has two large walk-in closets. Downstairs, the sprawling great room is the heart of this Ainsley Park home, where residents spend most of their time together," Pennington added.

Now is a great time to make the move you have been waiting for. The days of renting are over and the rewards of owning are just around the corner at Ainsley Park.
