Rosedale in Azusa Offers a Great San Gabriel Valley Location and Lively Family Community

AZUSA, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 19, 2012) - Maureen Short grew up in Pasadena, so when she and her husband Roland were looking to purchase a home for their growing family, she naturally gravitated to a familiar area. After extensive searching from Arcadia through Glendora, the couple found an incredible home buying opportunity at Rosedale, San Gabriel Valley's one and only master planned community. At the time of their purchase, Rosedale was in a stage of limbo, but the Shorts were not deterred and made a commitment to a five-year plan to see how this community progressed -- and they are thrilled with the spectacular results in just the past year.

"Both of us really liked the house we bought with a customized patio and even though the future of this community was unknown, my husband and I were optimistic that Rosedale would continue to be developed and it has. The community has come to life and we just love living here," Maureen said. "Rosedale Land Partners, the master developer, has done an incredible job communicating with the existing homeowners and hosting town hall meetings. The developer cared about us and it showed."

"It really is a happy story and our patience has paid off. New homes are popping up quickly and the opening of The Resort last summer made an important statement to the public and homeowners alike that Rosedale was transforming in a very positive way. There is a renewed sense of confidence and it's been fun watching the community evolve into such an exciting place to live. There is a wonderful sense of village living and energy. Homeowners make an effort to connect with each other and the big picture looks very promising. It is a wonderful environment to raise our young son and we plan on being here for quite some time. Our decision to live at Rosedale has been well worth it," Maureen added.

With over 100 new home sales in just under one year, Rosedale is a beautiful new home community surrounded by nature at the base of the scenic San Gabriel Mountains and was recently voted Master Planned Community of the Year in Southern California*. Now is a great time to discover eight distinctive neighborhoods by leading builders and new home choices to suit a diversity of lifestyles and budgets. Floorplans include two and three-story townhomes, village designs, garden homes and single-family luxury residences that range from approximately 1,346 to 3,900 square feet. Prices that can accommodate first-timers as well as move-up buyers start from the high $200,000s to the low $700,000s. For a closer look at Rosedale neighborhoods, visit LiveRosedale.com.

Enveloped by scenic mountains and a more woodsy setting, Rosedale residents enjoy a breezy climate and wonderful sense of retreat. Homeowners of all ages continue to enjoy The Resort at Rosedale, where it's all happening for fun and relaxation at this private clubhouse and recreation center. As the community continues to unfold, the future will bring ten planned parks, acres of gardens, tot lots and play structures. The future 5.5-acre Promenade Park will be a haven for sports enthusiasts and is planned to include a soccer and youth baseball field, basketball and tennis courts, play areas and community stage. An extensive trail system connects neighborhoods to open space and foothills, the perfect invitation to enjoy the great outdoors with an evening hike or mountain bike ride.

A plus for busy Southern Californians, Rosedale is conveniently located near the I-10 and 210 Corridor and the Metro Gold Line Station is slated for completion in 2015.
