New Homebuyers Getting the Best out of Urban Life at The Domain in the New Anaheim

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 14, 2015) - Moving from apartment life in Irvine, where neighbors were temporary and local friends were few, Ryan Garcia and Danny Lu sought to buy a new home in an area where they could meet new people and enjoy an abundance of amenities. They found exactly what they were looking for and more at The Domain by Brookfield Residential. One of the first homeowners to move into the neighborhood, the couple is having a fun time exploring the New Anaheim, while establishing friendships in and outside the community. 

"One of the best things about living at The Domain is being able to walk across the street to an eclectic mix of restaurants and bars. It's always fun seeing our neighbors at The Packing House and socializing with them around the outdoor fireplace or rooftop terrace within our community," said Garcia.

Garcia and Lu, who recently ran another Disney half-marathon, enjoy living where the action is without having to get in their car. In addition to The Packing House, their favorite spots also include Center Street Promenade, where they have weekend breakfast at The Gypsy Den, Ink and Bean for coffee, and the Center Street Cheese Shop.

The Domain has quickly become the premier new home neighborhood in Anaheim as buyers discover they can do what they love where they live. The ability to walk right out their front door and be in the heart of the city is a huge perk.

"We moved to The Domain because we wanted a more urban downtown feel," said Garcia. "We were looking for a walkable environment, and were pleasantly surprised that The Domain has such a strong sense of community among its homeowners. It's exactly what we wanted."

The couple loves the walkability of the neighborhood for another reason, their five-month-old mini Australian Shepherd puppy, Loki, who has become somewhat of a celebrity around town.

"Loki has an Instagram account and is quite popular with the locals," said Garcia. "People walk up to us all the time and say, you're the people with the dog, we follow him on Instagram!"

Homeowners like Garcia and Lu are equally appreciative of the opportunity to live in a brand new home featuring great style and affordability, with well-designed floorplans and features. The Domain's modern flats and townhomes offer an array of desirable amenities like gated motor courts and private garages with elevator access. Individual homes feature 1 to 3 bedrooms and 1 to 2 baths in approximately 746 to 1,644 square feet.

The outdoor space and designer upgrades in the Residence 4 were deciding factors for Garcia and Lu. "We love the dark cabinets and the upgraded granite countertops in our two bedroom home. Our favorite feature is the covered outdoor room and the way the entire floorplan flows. We like to grill outside and cook in the kitchen without being separated from our guests. It's a great layout for entertaining friends and family."

The Domain's 1-bedroom designs start from the mid $300,000s, 2 bedrooms begin from the mid $400,000s and 3 bedrooms are priced from the high $400,000s. Increasing the value further is a low tax rate and no Mello-Roos fees. Buyers who are looking to live in the heart of revitalized Anaheim in a chic new residence are encouraged to register their interest online at or visit the Sales Office and tour the 5 models.

The Packing House that Garcia and Lu love so much is also the hotspot of choice for those all over Orange County. Here, the area's best shopping, entertainment and restaurants are just steps away from The Domain. The unmatched blend of dining, cultural events, live music and nightlife opportunities are available at the Anaheim Packing District, The Shops at Anaheim Garden Walk, and The MUZEO Museum.

The on-site amenities at The Domain are equally impressive, with a resort-style pool, outdoor fireplaces and seating areas, barbecues and a rooftop terrace that Garcia and Lu have adopted as one of their favorite places within the community.

"We love going up to the rooftop terrace to watch the fireworks from Disneyland at nighttime," said Garcia. "Sometimes we bring speakers and play music that coordinates with the fireworks to enjoy with everyone. We were up there the other night again having a great time with our neighbors."

Homeowners at The Domain have convenient access to local work centers via three nearby freeways and the train station just over three miles away. Anaheim Ice, The Grove, Honda Center, Angel Stadium and Disneyland are all within a few minutes' drive from the community.
