William Lyon Homes' Contempo Will Offer a Commuter-Friendly Location in Escondido

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2013) - William Lyon Homes knows today's homebuyers value a fantastic location and their brand new Contempo neighborhood will have this priority covered, and then some. These modern townhomes will be conveniently situated just a short drive from downtown Escondido's shops and entertainment, as well as popular retailers at Westfield North County. The highly anticipated SPRINTER Rail Station will also be close-by and Contempo is just minutes from the 15 and 78 freeways, affording an easy commute to Oceanside and San Diego's popular destinations. With the Model Grand Opening scheduled for early Summer 2013, interested homebuyers are encouraged to visit, click on the box on the right side labeled "Get on the Inside Track for Contempo" and join the growing interest list to be among the first to learn about pricing, events and phase openings.

"With prices anticipated to start from the high $200,000s, the financial benefit of no Mello Roos and low HOA fees, plus a commuter friendly location, Contempo will offer a perfect opportunity to make the leap from renting to owning in San Diego," said Lesley Pennington, Vice President of Sales for William Lyon Homes. "Residents can look forward to a more convenient lifestyle, one where they are within close proximity to charming downtown Escondido as well as the freeway, a tremendous benefit for busy professionals. For weekend leisure, Contempo homeowners can enjoy golf at The Vineyard at Escondido or take a hike at Palomar Mountain State Park."

"This attached collection will also offer pricing that encourages renters and first-time buyers to take a serious look at homeownership and to get them moving into a new townhome that fits their lifestyle and budget. For San Diegans with these goals in mind, we invite them to register their interest to stay one step ahead as we make the final preparations for Contempo's highly anticipated opening," Pennington added.

A selection of four functional, stylish row townhome designs will range from approximately 1,164 to 1,604 square feet of three-story space, with two to three bedrooms, plus a den, 2.5 to 3.5 baths, patios/decks, plus the convenience of two-car, side-by-side garages. Interiors will showcase abundant windows to emphasize natural lighting and residents will enjoy the privacy of single entry access. This collection will balance the carefree living of attached architecture with the advantage of all new construction and the peace of mind associated with long-term builder warranties and the commitment of an established homebuilder.

Contempo will offer residents access to the Escondido Union School District and the Escondido Union High School District, where they will attend Central Elementary School, Del Dios Middle School and San Pasqual High School.
