Millenial Couple Finds Their Happy Place With Purchase of First Home at New Haven in Ontario Ranch

ONTARIO RANCH, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 21, 2016) - The good stuff is happening at Brookfield Residential's New Haven in Ontario Ranch, where homeowners are settling into the Holiday, Waverly and Summerset neighborhoods and living the life they've always imagined. Talar and Bradley Yarbrough, a young couple who moved into their first-ever home at Waverly last March, are among the 42% surge of millennial homebuyers at New Haven. "We were living in an apartment and decided to take a look at new construction in the area," said Talar. She and her husband had a clear idea of the kind of home they wanted but finding one with the features and price range they needed proved to be difficult. "Then we were introduced to Waverly at New Haven. We instantly fell in love!"

Waverly's open-concept, single-family home design has all of the elements the newly married couple envisioned. "We were thrilled that our home at Waverly has a downstairs bedroom and a private driveway that leads right to the garage," Talar remarks. "Plus, since we like to entertain, the open floorplan is perfect for us. We've already had two parties!" Other desirable features include a gorgeous master bedroom and bath that is "literally everything I could want and more," as well as two secondary bedrooms upstairs with walk-in closets.

As part of the millennial generation, the Yarbroughs covet an active, social lifestyle and New Haven's resort-style amenities cater to their needs perfectly. "We take full advantage of all the community amenities here, like hosting friends and family at the barbecue pavilion at New Haven's Resort area," she says. "Another incredible part of New Haven is all the events they plan where we've connected with a lot of couples our age. We've gone to the Christmas party and Bagels & Brew to meet our neighbors, and Movie Nights in the Park is next on our list!"

In addition to life within the community, they are also great fans of the location in Ontario Ranch. "We go to Victoria Gardens often and spend a lot of time in Ontario Ranch since it's more upscale and offers a lifestyle we really enjoy." The proximity to the freeways is another bonus, offering the couple "different routes depending on traffic" for easier work commutes.

To top things off, the couple found the purchasing experience to be an unexpected pleasure with Brookfield Residential. "We were nervous as first-time homebuyers but Brookfield put our minds at ease and were helpful every step of the way. Our sales team made the home buying experience such an enjoyable time and that meant so much to us."

Ontario Ranch, located within the city of Ontario, California, will span across 8,000+ acres and has been thoughtfully planned with attainably priced new neighborhoods, modern amenities and abundant recreation, elements that are the foundation of a well-rounded lifestyle. The future Chaffey Park will be the centerpiece of Ontario Ranch, a sprawling open space with parks and trails for playing, walking and exploring the outdoors. It has been sensibly planned to align with the goals of the Healthy Ontario Initiative and its efforts to provide residents with opportunities to enrich their wellbeing. Ontario Ranch is envisioned as a mixed‐use area that will encompass residential neighborhoods, commercial facilities and recreational amenities. Proposed plans include retail and business space, along with nearly 1,000 acres dedicated to public open space, parks and schools. A convenient location offers direct access to the I-15 via the new connection at Cantu-Galleano Ranch Road. With the introduction of Ontario Ranch Road as well as the connection to the 60 Freeway via the newly improved Archibald Avenue, Ontario Ranch offers commuters easy access to major employment centers in LA, Riverside, San Bernardino and Orange counties.
