La Vita's Residence Two Captivates Homebuyers With Exquisite Architectural Details, Voluminous Spaces

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 8, 2016) - Set behind the entry gates of the Groves in Orchard Hills™, Brookfield Residential's award-winning La Vita neighborhood has quickly become Irvine's ultimate address for refinement and beauty with four stunning new home designs that represent homebuyers' grandest aspirations. The spectacular Residence Two in particular captures the essence of the single-family luxury collection's striking blend of magnificence and charm, showcasing stately Tuscan-inspired exteriors with extensive stone accents and exquisite architectural details. A sense of arrival sets in the moment homebuyers enter the private driveway and walk into Residence Two's dramatic foyer with soaring, two-story vaulted ceilings. From there, the elegant floorplan inspires a multitude of lifestyle possibilities with sweeping, open living spaces that include an expansive outdoor living room with fireplace, a gourmet kitchen equipped with an oversized eat-in island and an adjacent prep kitchen that can be transformed into a high-heat kitchen, additional laundry room or craft room. The luxurious first-floor master bedroom is set apart from the upper level's secondary bedrooms, offering convenience and privacy with an enormous walk-in closet, large master bath and optional French doors leading to the rear yard. The upper level is equally well-planned with two sizeable secondary bedrooms with their own en-suite baths, an upstairs laundry room and a spacious family retreat area that connects to a study or music room. Rounding out the superb design is an oversized two-car garage with extra storage space and the great convenience of no rear neighbors to detract from the gorgeous city light views. Homebuyers interested in La Vita's dramatic Residence Two, or any of the collection's exquisite home designs, are encouraged to log on to, or visit the Sales Gallery today.

"La Vita's Residence Two beautifully illustrates the elegance of the collection, with a masterful design and meticulous detailing that surpasses every expectation of new-home grandeur," said Mercedes Meserve, Vice President of Marketing for Brookfield Residential Southern California. "To understand the true magnificence of this design, we encourage homebuyers to tour the model home at their leisure."

Honored with two prestigious Gold Awards and three Silver Awards at The Nationals(SM) 2015 ceremony, La Vita at Orchard Hills is a stunning representation of Brookfield Residential's legacy of premier homebuilding in the most coveted locations. 

Set atop a picturesque, elevated setting, the spectacular collection offers an array of Tuscan-inspired homes clustered into unique piazzas with richly textured landscaping and private driveways that heighten the arrival home time and again. Homebuyers may choose from four gorgeous two-story residential designs that feature expansive interiors spanning from approximately 3,400 to 4,000 square feet with voluminous foyer ceilings, four to five bedroom suites, four and one-half to five and one-half baths, two-car garages plus storage and remarkably beautiful appointments that add a level of authenticity not often found in new homes.

Dramatic design elements include flowing great rooms that lead to an outdoor covered living room with fireplace via optional bi-fold or optional multi-slide pocket panel doors, chef-inspired gourmet kitchens showcasing Viking® stainless steel professional appliance packages and formal dining rooms that accommodate elaborate dinner affairs. The upper levels feature spacious bedrooms with en-suite baths, unique family retreat areas and more. Customization options are also available. Homes are priced from the mid to high $1 millions.
