Online PR News – 11-December-2009 – – The 2010 New Home Collection within the Villages of Irvine is set to launch in January; and already thousands of excited homeshoppers have visited www.VillagesofIrvine.com to learn more about this extraordinary collection of new homes.

The 2010 New Home Collection will showcase 25 floorplans from six different homebuilders featured throughout eight neighborhoods in the Irvine Villages of Woodbury and Woodbury East. Prices for the new homes within The 2010 New Home Collection are expected to start in the low $300,000s.

“We’ve had such an incredible response to The 2010 New Home Collection,” said Tom Veal, vice president of residential marketing and product planning for Irvine Company Community Development. “With its premier builders, fantastic amenities, and innovative floorplans, The 2010 New Home Collection is one opportunity homeshoppers can’t afford to miss.”

In fact, nearly every architectural feature of The 2010 New Home Collection’s floorplans and design is the result of thorough research that asked families what they wanted in new homes.

“The best way to know what homebuyers want is to be in their homes and get an appreciation for how they live. So, we went in and studied how families use their spaces,” said Barbara Nagle Statler, president of MarketScape Research & Consulting, who conducted the research for The 2010 New Home Collection.

The research team discovered that families desired large communal spaces where there is a strong connection between the kitchen, the dining room, and the family room. Based on these findings, Irvine-based Robert Hidey Architects, Inc. and Newport Beach-based Bassenian/ Lagoni Architects delivered floorplans featuring spacious kitchens, Great Rooms and California Rooms as one grand space. The Great Rooms and kitchens flow into exterior California Rooms that provide easy access to outdoor entertaining.
