"The Branches is the first new home neighborhood to open in more than 15 years within the prestigious Village of Woodbridge, a community that has long been a favorite for Irvine living," said Lesley Pennington, Vice President of Sales for William Lyon Homes. "A diversity of Irvine homebuyers, including those who have grown up here and who want to raise their children in this environment have expressed tremendous enthusiasm for The Branches as the ideal address to plan their future. With large single-family designs, access to acclaimed Irvine Unified schools and established recreation that is ready to be enjoyed, this neighborhood embodies the priorities of many local buyers and this Saturday's grand opening celebration is absolutely the one occasion they cannot afford to miss."

 "During their tour, guests have the opportunity to explore the living spaces of The Branches' three different floorplans to determine which one best meets their needs and to also meet with a member of William Lyon Homes sales team who can answer any questions regarding pricing, interior features, community amenities and more," Pennington added.

The Branches presents such a rare and special opportunity of just 48 beautiful, single-family residences located in the heart of Woodbridge. Two-story floorplans range from approximately 2,209 to 2,557 square feet, with three to five bedrooms, 2.5 to three baths and two-car garages; exteriors showcase Early Californian and Traditional architectural themes. The neighborhood is surrounded by meandering streets and nestled in a tranquil corner of North Lake adjacent to the newly improved Fallbrook Park, and a single entrance greets homeowners.

The Branches brings residents home to a fun, vibrant lifestyle every family member can enjoy. A fantastic array of established recreational amenities includes instant access to two lakes with docks, beach lagoons, 22 swimming pools, tennis courts, parks and miles of trails. Neighborhood schools within the Irvine Unified School District are highly rated and within easy driving distance, a convenience and privilege for the neighborhood's young students. A premium location near business, shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, as well as John Wayne Airport will offer an important benefit for buyers with busy lifestyles.

The coveted Irvine setting of The Branches will reinforce to future buyers the exceptional lifestyle they will experience as residents here -- the city of Irvine was ranked sixth by CNN Money as one of America's best small cities, with 44 miles of bike trails, 20,000 acres of parks and preserves, and a beach 10 miles away. CNN Money noted in a recent article that "Thanks to smart planning, this big city can feel surprisingly small. The 40-year-old community is divided into 40 "villages," and a minimum of five acres of park space is added for every 1,000 newcomers."
