GARDEN GROVE, CA—Southern California townhouse shoppers are out of luck if they counted on buying a new residence at Brandywine Homes‘ Century Village. All 53 townhomes in the popular Garden Grove development have been sold.
“Sixteen units are still under construction, but we’ve definitely sold out,” said Dave Barisic, vice president of sales and marketing at Brandywine Homes, a pioneer of infill development in Southern California.
Construction completion is expected in late March.
The three-story townhomes, located in the civic center next to historic Main Street, have been selling at a rate of about four per month – “a little faster than average – more like pre-recession levels,” Barisic said.
Century Village was designed to appeal to both first-time and move-up homebuyers, with three distinct floor plans ranging from 1,705 square feet to approximately 2,000 square feet. Pricing started in the low $400,000s.
Century Village townhomes’ most popular features have been the three-car garages and ground-level bedroom options, and its overall smart design: the second floor is an open great room, ideal for family gatherings and entertaining, while the top floor is dedicated to bedrooms.
“No parent wants to have his children’s bedroom on another floor. We kept all the sleeping on one level, and the living area on another,” Barisic said.
All units have front porches or balconies. A community park with a large water feature, sitting area and green space is located just beyond the entrance. Award-winning schools, easy freeway access, and a well-established neighborhood have been big drawing cards.
