Online PR News – 11-December-2009 – – For several families new to the Villages of Irvine, the end of the year simply couldn’t get here fast enough. That’s because this month, William Lyon Homes’ Ivy neighborhood officially welcomes its first-ever residents to one of the most desirable spots to call home in all of Orange County — the Village of Woodbury East.

Homeshoppers have embraced Ivy for its versatile designs and attractive stylings, resulting in consecutive sell-outs of its phase releases since its recent grand opening in Woodbury East. Currently priced from the mid $300,000s, the two-story townhomes of Ivy are offered in three different floorplans ranging in size from approximately 1,180 to 1,500 square feet.

“This is an exciting time at Woodbury East,” said Tom Veal, vice president of residential marketing and product planning for Irvine Company Community Development. “In addition to the first new families moving into Ivy, the final touches are being made to all sorts of great village amenities, including The Palm Club, opening next year. Plus, homeshoppers throughout Southern California are signing-up online to learn all about the upcoming debut of The 2010 New Home Collection within both Woodbury East and the adjacent Village of Woodbury.”

Designed after careful research and inspired by the way people truly live, The 2010 New Home Collection features innovative floorplans that help maximize the benefits of the casual Southern California lifestyle. Grand kitchens flow into expansive Great Rooms that lead into outdoor California Rooms. This creates uncommon expansive living areas filled with light and brings the outdoors in!

A total of 25 floorplans from six different homebuilders throughout eight different neighborhoods in the Irvine Villages of Woodbury East and Woodbury are featured within The 2010 New Home Collection. Prices for the new homes within The 2010 New Home Collection are expected to start in the low $300,000s. To learn more about The 2010 New Home Collection, visit www.VillagesofIrvine.com/NHC.
