La Cresta by Brookfield Residential the Neighborhood of a Lifetime for One Irvine Family

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 12, 2014) - Longtime Southern California residents Pras Vaidya and his wife Veena wanted a new home in Irvine that could accommodate their expanded family, a search that ended once they discovered La Cresta by Brookfield Residential. The finest and final new home offering within Irvine's award-winning Village of Woodbury™, La Cresta's desirable location and beautifully open interiors that include a downstairs bedroom fulfilled important priorities for Pras and his family.

"We lived in West Irvine for about six years and in 2013 started looking for a newer, bigger home. My wife and I both have relatives that visit for extended periods of time, so one of our main considerations was finding a floorplan with the comfort and convenience of a bedroom on the first level. Our nine year-old son really wanted his own bathroom, one he didn't have to share, so he was quite delighted with the outcome," Pras explained. "I did extensive Internet searches on new Irvine neighborhoods and when I discovered La Cresta, I registered immediately. When the models were under construction we took a tour and once they were complete, they looked incredible and spacious. My wife and I loved the Plan 1 and agreed this design absolutely worked for us."

"In addition to the first-floor bedroom, we love the upstairs -- the open loft and family room are perfect. The three of us spend evenings together playing board games and reading, and our son has all of his games in the loft area, which is an ideal space for him and his friends, while the parents can visit downstairs. The flexibility of the two-car garage and home management room also appealed to us very much," he added.

"La Cresta's sales counselors Donna and Andrea were incredible and our experience buying our new home was easier than we ever anticipated. I asked lots of questions, did a lot of analysis and was always bugging them, but I never once got the feeling I was imposing. They were both amazing, responsive and showed lots of grace during what was probably a very stressful time."

"Even though we just moved in a few months ago, our family is already so happy here. Irvine is our comfort zone near family, friends and the great schools that are important to us. Our new Brookfield Residential home is beautiful and I don't ever want to move, I really hope this is it," he said.

The epitome of residential prestige and refinement, no detail has been overlooked to ensure La Cresta's extraordinary appeal.

The award-winning Village of Woodbury™, within the Villages of Irvine, was inspired by classic American small towns and villages of the past. A traditional grid design encompasses unique "districts" of residential homes, highlighted by 16 neighborhood parks positioned around "The Commons" -- a 30-acre central gathering place with athletic fields, a tot lot, recreation center and swimming pools close to miles of open space trails and paseos, award-winning schools, diverse shopping and dining, and much more.

Created by Irvine Company Community Development, the Village of Woodbury is located in the City of Irvine. The City of Irvine was recently ranked by Money Magazine as the "6th Best Place to Live in America." The highly-acclaimed master-planned community is renowned for allowing residents to enjoy a unique lifestyle unmatched in the region -- some of the best schools in the state; America's safest city for eight straight years; abundant open space, parks and recreational opportunities; and world-class dining, entertainment and employment.
