Wisteria in the Master-Planned Community of Rosedale - The Ideal Choice for Location & New Home Designs

AZUSA, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 14, 2014) - When it came time to buy a new home, there was only one priority for recent Wisteria homebuyers Eugene and Ranzel Cross -- location, location, location. The ideal locale and elegant home designs are attracting homebuyers to Wisteria in Rosedale, as the scenic surroundings, convenience to area work centers, and luxurious single-family residences create an unmatched new home opportunity in Azusa. 

After touring the new home neighborhoods in Rosedale, one of the country's top-selling master-planned communities, Eugene and Ranzel Cross discovered Wisteria's Residence One and instantly knew they had found their dream home. "We love the Wisteria neighborhood and the design of the Residence One," said Ranzel Cross. "The family room is connected to the kitchen, which really functions well for our family events and parties. A lot of homes have a living room that no one ever goes into, so it's great that we don't have that unused space here. The homes at Wisteria are spacious and planned very well by including a California room, which allows us to open the patio doors and expand our living space outdoors. We especially liked the standard features that were included throughout the home at no additional cost," Ranzel added.

Eugene and Ranzel Cross were also looking for a family-friendly neighborhood, and they found exactly what they wanted at Wisteria. The family moved into their home in October, quickly becoming ingrained in the Rosedale lifestyle, meeting neighbors and taking advantage of the community amenities such as the walking paths and gym. "This is the only neighborhood in L.A. County where we could find new construction with great community amenities and a great location that's just minutes from work. Wisteria has everything we wanted. The amenities are so close and the area around us is so nice. We can bike and walk, and the grounds are beautiful. It's very conducive to an active lifestyle. Plus the Metro Gold Line boarding station is coming in 2015, which will make Wisteria even more convenient," Eugene and Ranzel Cross concluded.

Wisteria has been experiencing incredible sales success as homebuyers just like Eugene and Ranzel Cross discover the unmatched combination of family-friendly floorplans, upscale features and master-planned amenities offered in this coveted resort-inspired community in Azusa. Thanks to consistent buyer demand, Wisteria will be releasing a new phase of homes on Saturday, February 22nd.
