First-Time Homebuyers Find Perfect Place to Bring Home Baby at Master-Planned Community, Rosedale in Azusa

Once Apartment Dwellers, Mathew and Valerie Biller Discovered New Home Community Rosedale in Azusa Just in Time to Welcome Their First Child

AZUSA, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 11, 2012) -  This year, master-planned community Rosedale in Azusa welcomed new residents Mathew and Valerie Biller. The couple started a new chapter in their life when they purchased their first home and weeks later, rejoiced in the birth of their first child. Formerly West Covina apartment dwellers, the couple now enjoys a four-bedroom, 2.5-bath Mapleton home, as well as several community amenities at Rosedale.

"It took about a year for us to find the right place," noted Mathew. "We kept our eyes on Rosedale, and after seeing KB Home's Mapleton neighborhood the day before it grand opened, we fell in love with the models and appreciated the price point." No walls attached to neighbors, plenty of parking, and a great design were quite the upgrade from a one-bedroom apartment, noted Mathew.

The Billers were also attracted to Rosedale's location, near Mathew's hometown of Diamond Bar, and providing quick freeway access to Los Angeles. "Location!" exclaimed Mathew. "Rosedale's perfectly located. Plus, my wife grew up a few blocks from here, and it's special knowing that we'll raise our family here, too."

Other than cherishing their new bundle of joy, Mathew and Valerie are parents to three cats. "It seems like residents are all issued a four-legged companion in the Azusa foothills," said Mathew. "We go for walks every night. I've never done that in my life, but I love doing it here. We've got amazing sunset views of the city. I take pictures on my cell phone almost every night."

Located on more than 500 acres of land, Rosedale offers residents various opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Current and future amenities at Rosedale include 10 neighborhood parks, equipped with picnic tables, play structures, gardens, shade pavilions and barbecues; 5.5-acre Promenade Park equipped with youth sports fields, basketball and multi-use courts; and access to over 100 hiking trails, including Garcia Park that has hiking trails more than two miles long, as well as access to Azusa Peak, reaching 2,081 feet.
