"Big Sky has been thoughtfully designed to showcase large one- and two-story, single-family detached homes within Audie Murphy Ranch and today's special event is a great way for guests to personally explore the professionally decorated and furnished models on display in a leisurely, relaxed setting," said Rocky Tracy, Vice President of Sales for Brookfield Homes. "Visitors and prospective homebuyers are also encouraged to spend time getting to know the members of the sales team, who can address any questions they may have regarding this luxury neighborhood and to also help them determine which Big Sky residence is best suited for their family's individual lifestyle, priorities and financial expectations. Finding just the right home is a tremendous decision and the Model Grand Opening of Big Sky is that exciting first step for families who want a spacious, elegant new Menifee home in a community that fits their life."

Offering a picturesque, elevated location within the naturally majestic Audie Murphy Ranch community, Big Sky's new home designs range from approximately 2,790 to 3,830 square feet of interior space, with three to six bedrooms and 2.5 to 3.5 bathrooms and a variety of room options to give families the flexibility they want. Three- and four-car oversized garages are ideal for buyers who need extra room for vehicles, sports equipment and tools. Generous lots afford homeowners the opportunity to dine, entertain and relax outdoors. Prices are anticipated to start from the low $300,000s.

An optional first-floor living suite with a preference to add a kitchenette is one of Big Sky's most innovative features. The living suite is located within the house, yet separated from the main living areas with a private side entrance, offering family members the privacy of their own living area, while still staying connected to the household. Additional highlights at Big Sky range from sizeable dining rooms to large spaces that can be utilized for crafting and other activities. Brookfield Homes appreciates that families require practical amenities and has designed Big Sky with super laundry rooms, large closets and plenty of storage space for toys and holiday decorations. Big Sky's desirable location will place residents within close proximity to local conveniences, including the Menifee Countryside Market and the Menifee Town Center.

Audie Murphy Ranch is a new master-planned community set amidst 1,100 rolling acres of homes, parks and timeless beauty. Surrounded by magnificent trees and century-old rock formations, rugged silhouettes of the San Jacinto and San Bernardino mountains provide a majestic backdrop to this special destination. Under development by Brookfield Residential, the master plan community provides a variety of new home neighborhoods for classic family living. Bordering an ecological preserve, Salt Creek is within the center of Audie Murphy Ranch, while miles of meandering trails and paseos link residents to community amenities. Three planned public parks including an 11-acre, future sports park will provide an abundance of recreational opportunities, including a baseball and soccer field, basketball courts, tennis courts, playgrounds and picnic areas with lighting. There's even a future skateboard park and proposed dog park for the family pet. The private recreational center will be the centerpiece of community fun. Once completed, residents will enjoy a swimming pool, spa, children's pool, barbecues, picnic areas, playgrounds and a 3,500 square foot recreation building for special events.
