At La Vita, a love of architectural refinement and a hilltop location that captures the romance of a European countryside forges the dream of enchanted living that is coveted by many and attainable by only a few. La Vita by Brookfield Residential is poised to redefine the standard for luxury in Irvine with a special new enclave in a secluded setting like no other, among exquisite surroundings in Orange County near working avocado groves. The gated privacy of the Groves at Orchard Hills sets an incomparable tone, matched by La Vita’s Italian-inspired architecture that showcases the very best of Brookfield’s signature style. La Vita is quite simply more than a new-home neighborhood. It is the rare enclave that is capable of transporting those who discover it to another place.

“La Vita was inspired by the essence of an extraordinary location in Irvine, with a worthy nod to European villages, to create the true California dream,” said Mercedes Meserve, Senior Marketing Director for Brookfield Residential Southern California. “Highly detailed elevations will bring an authentic Tuscan flavor to the exterior of the homes, with stone, wrought iron and wood elements juxtaposed against the majesty of nature. La Vita’s residences will also enjoy traditional piazza configurations with private driveways, further exploring the distinctive European experience. The combination is as dramatic as you would expect from a location this magnificent among surroundings this majestic.”

La Vita’s kitchens will showcase impressive features for even the most studied gourmet chef, with expansive kitchen islands and adjoining prep/high heat wok kitchens with a walk-in pantry, sink, and second dishwasher, offering an ideal space for those who love to entertain but who would prefer to keep their main kitchen pristine and keep the prep work out of sight. This space can also be customized to the needs of the home’s owner, and turned into an optional craft room.

The ideal of indoor-outdoor living will be fully realized at La Vita, with bi-fold or multi-slide doors that allow a seamless flow between living spaces and outdoor rooms. Serene relaxation, al fresco dining, and grand entertaining are all part of the La Vita experience.

Northwest Fort Worth is Where Serene Homes Debuts its First ‘Smart Home’ Designs

Southlake, TX (March 26, 2014) – Serene Homes, a new, national, single family home builder, has chosen to debut its first ‘smart home’ designs this year in northwest Fort Worth. The first two developments will be located at The Trails of Fossil Creek, which will break ground this year and another at The Hills of Windridge which is set to open its model homes in June. Serene Homes will set itself apart from other homebuilders in the market in that they will offer augmented reality technology in the sales and design process, and they will fully outfit each house with smart home functionality as an included feature.

Jeff Peterson, Executive Vice President of Land Acquisition and Development, for Serene Homes said, “Serene Homes was started because there needs to be a change in the new home building industry. We plan to accomplish this in two ways. First, by offering homeowners the best value, best products, with the most thought-out custom, not stock, floor plans that are available in today’s market. Secondly, every part of our daily lives is somehow connected to technology except for our homes… we want every Serene Homes customer to have peace of mind that their home contains the latest technology for simplifying their lives, lowering utility costs, and most importantly, keeping them safe and secure thanks to a system in each residence that can be personally monitored from anywhere in the world.”

Serene Homes chose North Texas because Texas has a shortage of homes due to the massive population increases. “Texas has a great climate, favorable tax structure for businesses and individuals, and is still very affordable to buy a home,” said Peterson.

According to CNN.com, Fort Worth is one of the top 10 housing markets for 2014 with a median home price of $181,300. “We chose Fort Worth for our first two communities because people and employers like Walmart, Amazon and Motorola and others keep moving to this area from all over the world. In order to satisfy the demand of all the influx of companies and their employees, Serene Homes will be able to help equalize the supply and demand scale. Thus keeping housing affordable for everyone,” added Peterson.

What has many times been described as one of the hardest endeavors in one’s life-building a home-will become an exciting, uniquely interactive experience and a much more enjoyable process, thanks to a high tech sales center, 3D display capable design center and design process accessible from any device with augmented reality technology.

If a buyer forgets what the wall color looks like next to the flooring and granite countertops they selected at the design center, they will be able to access an augmented reality layout online from their computer or mobile device and perhaps avoid stress or debate with their significant other. Serene Homes also believes that the more tech-minded individual will enjoy the design process more than ever before. For first-time homebuyers, what was once a luxury-a fully integrated smart home-is now a reality with Serene Homes providing training for the first year.

The elevations and floor plans for each home will be distinctively named after peaceful and serene places of note in the world from Alpamayo and Santorini to Tulum and Tuscany.

Homes at The Trails of Fossil Creek will be priced from the $140s to $160s with three and four bedroom one and two story plans ranging from 1,464 to 2,926 square feet. There are 467 home lots available over 93 acres.

Homes at The Hills of Windridge will be priced from $170s to low $300s ranging from 1,778 to 3,506 square feet. There are 1,284 available home lots on 430 acres.
