Brookfield's Phase Four View Homesites at La Vita in Orchard Hills

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 20, 2014) - The exquisite enclave of La Vita at Orchard Hills™ by Brookfield Residential is surpassing expectations for upscale homebuyers in Irvine. The first three phases of this award-winning* enclave are selling quickly and its recently released Phase Four is a collection of sumptuous homes with something truly remarkable added to the mix: breathtaking views of hillsides, city lights, and the Pacific Ocean.

La Vita's private estate-style living behind the dramatic entry gates of the Groves in Irvine, presents a new level of grandeur and elegance in an esteemed area. This upscale neighborhood blends innovative home design with a naturally spectacular setting that exudes all the allure of Southern California living. For more information, visit La Vita, where you can tour the four captivating model homes, or log onto www.BrookfieldSoCal.com for immediate details.

"The elevated setting of our Phase Four Homes brings what is already considered Irvine's finest offering to a whole new level of prestige and prominence for buyers who are specifically looking for a home featuring stunning vistas of the hillsides to the coastline," said Mercedes Meserve, Vice President of Marketing for Brookfield Residential Southern California.

Brookfield Residential is known for its legacy of fine homebuilding, with neighborhoods in the most desired communities and homes featuring meticulously designed floorplans and an array of high-end features and finishes. La Vita is continuing this legacy, with an outstanding neighborhood of luxury homes priced from the mid to high $1 millions.

Distinguished by authentic Tuscan elevations and inviting street scenes punctuated by gracious piazzas and private driveways, La Vita was created in the tradition of the finest Italian villas. The Phase Four homes boast all the allure of an upscale Mediterranean enclave with stunning views that are quintessentially California.

Residences at La Vita range from approximately 3,400 to 4,000 square feet, with 4 to 5 bedroom suites, 4.5 to 5.5 baths and 2-car garages plus additional storage. The Brookfield touch is evident throughout, with floorplan innovations and unique details that elevate the design while providing uninterrupted sightlines throughout the homes.

In the chef's kitchens, expansive islands and adjoining prep/high heat wok kitchens with walk-in pantries, sinks and second dishwashers provide gourmet potential for everyday living and entertaining. Homeowners can also opt to turn this space into a craft room. First-floor master suites and/or generous guest suites in all four plans give families with older children or frequent guests the flexibility they are looking for.

Immediate access to outdoor rooms via bi-fold or multi-slide pocket panel doors welcomes an afternoon of basking in the California sunshine amid a panorama of awe-inspiring vistas as well as the gorgeous natural setting of Orchard Hills.
