Pardee Homes reports that 16 homes were sold during the first quarter of the year at Brightwater, a collection of single-family detached homes in Pacific Highlands Ranch.

In late May, Pardee Homes will open Sorrento Heights, a brand new hillside neighborhood of 113 sophisticated, single-family detached homes located above Sorrento Valley. Three floor plans will be available, offering two-story living with three to four bedrooms and approximately 2,155 to 2,506 square feet.

Sorrento Terrace Construction Under Way

Model home construction is under way above Sorrento Valley for a new neighborhood of condominiums by Pardee Homes. Sorrento Terrace is expected to open for sale this summer, bringing a collection of 71 new homes to the area.

Located above Sorrento Valley, Sorrento Terrace will include seven floor plans, offering up to three bedrooms, two baths and approximately 991 to 1,541 square feet. Charming Spanish and Craftsman architecture will accent these eco-friendly, one- and two-story homes with direct-access garages. Pricing is anticipated to be from the high $300,000s.

Sorrento Terrace will feature Pardee Homes’ LivingSmart package of energy saving features and options. Some of today’s most desired amenities will be standard, including slab granite kitchen countertops, stainless steel appliances, Low-E windows, recessed lighting and a convenient recycling cabinet in the kitchen. A community swimming pool is also planned.

“The real story here is the location,” said Matt Sauls, director of marketing for Pardee Homes. “We have developed a product that not only suits the location, but fulfills a need in coastal San Diego for well-appointed, but reasonably priced new homes. Good schools and proximity to employment centers in downtown San Diego, Torrey Pines, La Jolla, University City and UC San Diego contribute to the desirability of the area. The models are expected to be ready this summer, look for video updates at www.pardeehomes.com or call our online specialist at (858) 342-8797.
