Contemporary Home Designs Popular at Laurel by Irvine Pacific in Cypress Village

Single-Family Homes Perfect for Growing Families; Neighborhood Walking-Close to Two Schools; Close to Employment, Shopping, Dining and Resort-Style Amenities

Irvine, CA, September 18, 2014 --( Three single-family home designs that balance contemporary style with function and livability are attracting homeshoppers to the Irvine Pacific® neighborhood of Laurel at Cypress Village in The Villages of Irvine. These single-family detached homes are perfect for families who want to add room and live close to award-winning schools, world-class shopping and dining, and abundant parks and trails.

"Laurel was designed for homebuyers interested in single-family homes perfect for growing families,” said Tom Veal, Vice President of Residential Sales and Marketing for Irvine Pacific. “The three home designs are inspired by our latest research and epitomize open and fresh living spaces with oversized kitchen islands, the California Room and Conservatory Room options."

Veal added, “Residents at Cypress Village enjoy a resort-style lifestyle, complete with expansive amenities, shopping, abundant trails within walking distance and new schools within the most-heralded district in the region.”

All of the Irvine Pacific homes at Cypress Village are designed and built according to standards established by Build It Green, a non-profit organization in California that promotes healthy, energy and resource-efficient homes throughout the state. The homes will incorporate a wide range of materials, finishes, appliances and energy systems that exceed California building and energy code requirements.

“The homes within Cypress Village are designed to provide families with everything that they need to thrive now, and in the years to come,” noted Veal. “These home designs offer comfort and convenience, ample storage and innovative features, smart room options and opportunities to customize your home to meet the specific needs of your family.”

Cypress Village students attend the just-opened Cypress Village Elementary School and the acclaimed Jeffrey Trail Middle School. Both schools are conveniently located within the Village so parents can walk their children to school, and are part of the heralded Irvine Unified School District, named the best overall Orange County school district in 2011 by The Orange County Register.

“Cypress Village is the only neighborhood in Irvine with two walking close schools,” said Veal. "Jeffrey Trail Middle School is already earning acclaim despite having just finished its first year, and Cypress Village Elementary School is sure to do the same!”

Jeffrey Trail Middle School was honored at the 2014 Southern California State Science Olympiad, placing fifth among middle schools – an impressive feat when considering the school opened just eight months earlier.

“By any measuring stick – test scores, graduation rates, students who move on to higher education – the Irvine Unified School District is one of the finest in the state, and the nation,” noted Veal. “These student achievements are just another barometer of all of the outstanding things happening in Irvine schools, as the students remain among the best in California.”

Residents are within walking distance to Cypress Village Shopping Center, with many shops including Albertsons, Kohl’s and Starbucks. In addition, Irvine Spectrum Center® is just minutes away and is home to more than 130 restaurants and specialty retailers.

Irvine Pacific offers research-driven homes within the award-winning Villages of Irvine®, utilizing quantifiable consumer feedback and interaction to create new home solutions with innovation, technology and intelligent energy efficiency while integrating long-term planning and building expertise.

“Our extensive consumer research process has provided a number of key insights, which we have incorporated into these new home designs at Laurel,” Veal explained. “Irvine Pacific prides itself in providing a high-quality home that responds to the ever-changing lifestyles, needs and desires of today’s families.”
