Irvine Pacific Announces Two New Neighborhoods for Popular Village of Stonegate

Saratoga, Mendocino to Grand Open in September 2012; Single-Family, Detached Homes with Open Floorplans Perfect for Entertaining; Just steps from Award-Winning Stonegate Elementary School; Walking Close to Pools, Parks and Additional Village of Stonegate Amenities; Provides Much Needed New Home Supply in Irvine.

Irvine, CA, August 18, 2012 --( Irvine Pacific® officials announced today that two new neighborhoods, Saratoga and Mendocino, will be grand opening new model homes in the popular Village of Stonegate next month.

“The extraordinarily strong response by homebuyers in Irvine – especially in the Village of Stonegate – is causing our neighborhoods to sell out at a very quick pace,” said Tom Veal, Vice President of Residential Sales and Marketing for Irvine Pacific. “Saratoga and Mendocino offer new homebuyers charming and spacious single-family detached homes with open floorplan designs and downstairs bedroom options in select plans. Stonegate Elementary School is nearby, as are the many pools, parks and amenities found within the Village of Stonegate.”

Strong demand for new homes in Irvine is depleting available inventory across the Villages of Irvine. The Villages of Stonegate East (which opened in 2010) and Woodbury East (opened in 2009) have sold out all of their available new homes in 2012. Additionally, five neighborhoods have sold out this year, including San Marcos in the Village of Stonegate – last weekend. In all, an astounding 17 neighborhoods have sold out across the Villages of Irvine since January 2010.

Saratoga, by Irvine Pacific, features single-family detached homes that offer 4 bedrooms and 3 – 4 baths. Each Saratoga residence offers open floorplan designs with a highly desirable downstairs bedroom option. Optional California Rooms and Conservatories are also available, providing the opportunity for indoor/outdoor living. Three model homes range from 1,907 square feet to 2,181 square feet. Prices range from the high $600,000s to the mid $700,000s.

Mendocino, by Irvine Pacific, will feature single-family detached homes ranging from 3 – 4 bedrooms and 2.5 – 4 baths. Each Mendocino residence features light-filled Great Rooms that flow into chef-inspired kitchens. Optional California Rooms and Conservatories are available in all models, and downstairs bedroom suites are available in select models. Four model homes range from 2,221 square feet to 2, 452 square feet. Prices range from the low $800,000s to the high $800,000s.
