SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 29, 2012) - Just six months ago, TRI Pointe Homes made its initial entry into the Northern California real estate market with the introduction of Chantrea at Silver Creek in San Jose. Now, TRI Pointe Homes has achieved a significant milestone with the closing of the first escrow at Chantrea.
"The response to Chantrea has been tremendous," stated Carrie Newbery, TRI Pointe Home's vice president of sales and marketing for Northern California. "Our first closing at Chantrea is one of many more to come, and it's the beginning of our future success throughout Northern California."
Chantrea is already selling its third phase, which is currently offering a limited number of homes that are available for pre-holiday move-ins. And for those who would like to start the new year with a prestigious Chantrea address, the community's fourth phase goes on sale in a couple of weeks. You may be able to get a sneak peek if you drop by and see our Sales Counselor, Joyce.
Since its debut, Chantrea has captured the imaginations of home buyers who recognize the value of a luxurious new home that makes a Silicon Valley-close address attainable with prices starting in the $1 millions.
That value is heightened by impressive dimensions spanning approximately 3,390 to 4,250 square feet, including up to five bedrooms and up to four and one-half baths as well as numerous special features. Varying plans are highlighted with first- and second-floor master suites, and the appeal of the homes is enhanced by comfortably livable family spaces and a variety of sought-after room options, such as gourmet preparation kitchens, multipurpose dens and covered outdoor rooms designed for al fresco entertaining.
Matching the upscale designs of Chantrea, each home's kitchen is distinguished by professional-caliber Thermador® stainless steel appliances, including Masterpiece Series 5-burner gas cooktop, double oven and built-in microwave. The kitchens also heighten mealtime convenience with extra-large islands that provide ample storage while Euro-style cabinets in a variety of stains lend a look of contemporary style.
Along with a truly exceptional home, families with children will also appreciate the educational excellence of the highly acclaimed Evergreen School District, which is committed to providing students with a high-quality education in a safe and nurturing environment and ensuring that each student demonstrates a spirit of respect, responsibility and a commitment to academic and civic excellence.
Adding to the appeal and the value of Chantrea, every home is equipped with SunPower® solar energy panels, which save energy, reduce utility bills and help protect the environment. This is just one of many energy-efficient features that reflect TRI Pointe Homes' philosophy of treading lightly and building wisely.
Just off of Nieman Boulevard in San Jose, Chantrea at Silver Creek is conveniently located near San Jose's numerous parks, cultural attractions and museums, as well as a host of shopping, dining and entertainment destinations. The San Jose Center for the Performing Arts, San Jose Civic Auditorium, and San Jose Museum of Art are among the many nearby cultural venues. Among the area's popular local parks, Happy Hollow Park & Zoo is a favorite of families with children and provides conservation-oriented outdoor adventure.
