Who said nobody’s building single-family homes anymore?
Valencia hosted a grand opening celebration July 30 for not just one but two new-home communities to be “built as promised” by a merchant builder and one of Newhall Land Development LLC’s investors.
Model homes were decorated and guests were treated to food trucks, gift certificates for shopping sprees and a free foursome at Newhall Land-owned TPC Valencia golf course valued at $500.
Evidently it worked, because several guests reportedly signed on the bottom line that day, according to Newhall Land’s Awesometown blog.
And these aren’t tiny homes.
Milan at West Hills offers two-story designs starting in the low $500,000s with up to 4,028 square feet, six bedrooms and five baths, three-car garages and a 10-year guarantee from builder KB Home, which purchased 43 finished lots from Newhall Land in May.
Aria at West Creek is a more modest neighborhood of three- and four-bedroom homes starting in the mid-$300,000s and ranging from 1,782 to 2,343 square feet. The builder is Lennar, which owns 15 percent of Newhall Land and specializes in affordable, move-up and retirement homes.
Reorganized in 2009, Newhall Land Development LLC is a $90 million company that consists primarily of the 128-year-old Newhall Land and Farming Co., the Newhall Orchard, the TPC Valencia Golf Club and Valencia Water Co.
