William Lyon Homes' The Orchards Coming to Upland, Interest List Now Forming

UPLAND, CA--(Marketwired - Jan 20, 2015) - William Lyon Homes is delighted to announce plans for The Orchards, a brand-new community set in the appealing city of Upland. Furthering their reputation for bringing innovative new-home designs to desirable locations, the builder joined city leaders at the exciting groundbreaking ceremony for The Orchards in mid-December 2014, initiating the development of the community's two new-home neighborhoods. Attendees showing their support included Mayor Ray Musser; Fire Chief Rick Mayhew; Police Chief Jeff Mendenhall; City Manager Rod B. Butler; Development Services Director Jeff Zwack; Administrative Services Director Stephanie Mendenhall; and Councilmembers Debbi Stone, Gino L. Filippi and Carol Timm. Offering the rare opportunity for new home living in Upland, The Orchards will be comprised of Citrus Court -- a beautiful collection of attached homes, and Citrus Pointe -- an array of contemporary-styled townhomes. Both neighborhoods will offer the financial benefits of no Mello-Roos, a low tax rate, a fantastic commuter-friendly location and The Orchards' exclusive private amenities. To be among the first to learn about updated information and developments on these exciting new-home opportunities, buyers are encouraged to join the Interest Lists at and

"The Orchards is poised to be one of the most sought-after new-home communities for young buyers ready for homeownership," said Ben Blomdahl, Director of Sales for William Lyon Homes. "Attainably priced, both neighborhoods will embrace a range of lifestyle needs in one convenient setting. Don't miss out on ground floor opportunities and register your interest today." 

Citrus Court is ideal for singles, couples and starter families with spacious three-story attached homes. Five distinctive floorplan designs will range from approximately 989 to 1,750 square feet, with 2 to 3 bedrooms, 2 to 3 baths and 2-car attached garages.

Citrus Pointe's three-story townhomes will showcase contemporary architecture and five appealing floorplan options that will accommodate a variety of buyers from couples to young families. Comfortable interiors span from approximately 1,165 to 1,580 square feet, with 2 to 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2-car attached garages, and dens and lofts in select plans.

Both neighborhoods will offer distant views of the picturesque Mount Baldy and the San Gabriel Mountains from select locations. Another highly appealing element to The Orchards' lifestyle will be the community's exclusive amenities, which will include a pool, spa, barbecues and recreation center. Pocket parks and greenbelts will also be scattered throughout the community.

The Orchards community will be within walking distance to the Metrolink station, offering residents an easy commute to Los Angeles' employment centers and attractions, as well as being near to the I-210 and 1-10, easing the burden of daily driving excursions. Frequent travelers will appreciate the community's close driving distance to the Ontario International Airport.

Recreational opportunities include golf outings at both Red Hill Country Club & Golf Course and Upland Hills Country Club; baseball across the street at Olivedale Park; and challenging workouts at Hangar 18 Climbing Gym. Culture, dining and shopping destinations will be plentiful for residents with Upland's historic downtown within close proximity to The Orchards, providing a mix of charming boutiques, antique stores, restaurants and live theater. In neighboring Ontario, bargain shoppers will have Ontario Mills retail outlet at their disposal, while the renowned Victoria Gardens retail center in nearby Rancho Cucamonga will offer Macys, AMC Theatres, The Cheesecake Factory and a number of other shops and dining spots. Vons and Trader Joe's grocery stores will also be just a short distance from the community.
