Don’t be fooled. Despite the trend toward urbanization, density and multifamily living, millennials still love the idea of a big backyard and less interior square footage. Tri Pointe Homes Southern California is focusing on big backyards in its newest project, Viridian at Esencia in Mission Viejo. The project has been popular with first-time homebuyers.

“Millennials have demonstrated a desire to personalize their homes, and large yards provide that opportunity, especially here in California where outdoor living is ingrained in our culture,” Brian Ortwein, project manager at TRI Pointe Homes Southern California, tells GlobeSt.com. “We try to offer as many options as possible for our customers to personalize their homes, from our cabana and casita options, to interior finish selection. Viridian has demonstrated the value of providing our customers with a thoughtfully designed options catalog and exciting design studio experience. In addition, Viridian offers a popular home technology package, HomeSmart, which we’ve teamed with Amazon on, that helps automate lights, door locks, thermostats, and more.”
