Painted Hills at JP Ranch Celebrates Grand Opening

Calimesa, CA, July 10, 2013 --( More than one hundred eager home shoppers arrived early at Painted Hills at JP Ranch in Calimesa on Saturday, June 29th to tour Calimesa’s newest new home community. Members of the Calimesa City Council and Calimesa Chamber of Commerce cheered as Mayor Bill Davis ceremoniously cut the red ribbon and declared, “Painted Hills at JP Ranch is now officially open!”

Nestled in the foothills of Calimesa, CA, Painted Hills at JP Ranch is a gated enclave of just forty-four homes in the master-planned community of JP Ranch. Residents and visitors alike will enjoy a casual countryside lifestyle surrounded by the natural beauty of the area’s rolling hills, beautiful sunsets, and rural feel, and an excellent school system. Painted Hills is a smaller community that offers community amenities that are often found only in larger developments: meandering hiking and biking paths, a community clubhouse, pool, spa, barbecue, outdoor dining, half-court basketball courts, and a tot lot for the little tykes.

Hundreds of eager shoppers toured the four luxuriously-appointed single-story models that range from 2,000 to 2,600 square feet of well thought out living space. Solid quality in construction and intelligent design are evident at every turn with cost-saving energy efficient features: Low-E windows, insulated walls and ceilings, pre-wiring for communication and networking, night set-back thermostats for heating and cooling. All of these infrastructure enhancements are finished with the eye and skill of an interior decorator: detailed five-inch baseboards, old world textured walls and ceilings with radius corners, wood window sills, raised panel interior doors, just to name a few.

Hopeful home buyer Andrea Macias commented on her favorite: Residence Four, “I love the open living room and walk-in shower.” Residence Four spans approximately 2,600 square foot with plenty of room for a variety of lifestyles with three bedrooms, an office (or optional fourth bedroom), three baths, and a two car garage. Andrea continued, “The walk-in closets are huge, the homes are beautifully done.” The master suites are placed away from the main social areas of the home to allow for a feeling of quiet seclusion while the oversized windows and sliding doors provide views of the surrounding countryside. Luxury amenities include custom panel doors, a private bath suite with separate showers, jetted bathtubs, upgraded ceramic tile, and walk-in closets.

Other shoppers were impressed with the open floor plans that allow serious cooks to socialize with their guests. The gourmet kitchens include stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, stain-grade cabinetry in a variety of finishes, and there’s even a niche for a wine cooler.

In all, the four one-story floor plans range from approximately 2,000 square feet to more than 2,600 square feet of living space in three elevations: Craftsman, Tuscan and Spanish styling. Refined Exterior amenities and finishes are a standard part of the builder’s attention to detail, whether it’s aesthetic or functional: beautiful, lush front-yard landscaping with automatic sprinklers, fire-resistant clay or concrete tile roofing, elegant entry doors and hardware and vinyl side yard fencing, and designer-chosen carriage lights that make it feel like home at first glance.

Developer Steve Vliss, President and Chief Executive Officer of Highpointe Communities commented, “We are very excited to be launching this community here in Calimesa and we’re delighted with the response to these homes which are exceptional values. Buyers are able to purchase a new home with an extensive list of luxury amenities and finishes.”

Painted Hills Sales Manager Debbie Farrell is enthusiastic about the response, “In addition to being an exceptional value, these homes have nearly every feature that a buyer typically looks for in a new home: high ceilings, single story, and designer finishes are included in the sales price. There are essentially no surprises and they are move-in ready. Plus, we have an in-house, preferred lender that is offering excellent financing, immediate pre-qualification, and low interest rates.”

Mayor Davis was impressed with the turnout and the enthusiasm of the visitors, saying, “These are beautiful homes, and this community is very good for the City of Calimesa. Steve Vliss and his team has been excellent to work with. Congratulations to all on a job well done.”
