The New Home Bulletin: Opening Weekend at Lambert Ranch in Irvine

Lambert Ranch in Irvine – Opening Weekend

The New Home Company’s new Lambert Ranch development in the Portola Springs neighborhood of Irvine held their grand opening last weekend and never ones to miss a good party or an opportunity to see the latest and greatest developments in town, Dan and I headed over for the private, invite-only event Friday night for some sneak peaks at the new homes.

Dan got there about half an hour ahead of me and had already been through the Field models and grabbed a quick bite to eat…

The Ranch House clubhouse is a light-filled space that overlooks a large pool, a kids’ pool, and jacuzzi. Newly-planted canary island palms tower encircle the clubhouse’s footprint and abut the old, still-existing Lambert Ranch that sits just up the hill hidden behind a bushy grove of ficus and oaks.

After a quick check-in process at the front, Dan and I headed up to see some of the model homes. There are three (3) tracts within the development – The Field, The Grove and The Hill. The Field is the entry level and scale and cost go up from there.

Model Two  @ The Grove in Lambert Ranch in Irvine, CA April 29th, 2012
A detail of the entry at the Model Two home @ The Grove; I find it interesting to see the material use and stylistic choices The New Home Company has made… not incongruous at all but I think novel… a formal cast concrete moulding surrounding a black laquer door, all surrounded by a faux-aged brick with crisp white wood accents… it must be both difficult and exhilirating to design homes; you have to be practical, a tastemaker, stay on budget, do your best to appeal to the masses for sales (the home isn’t for the designers & architects, after all)…

Dan Finder trying out the bench in the entryway of Model Two @ The Grove. It may not be for everyone, but I really liked the brick wall; it gives the room an instant Monterey-new-construction-on-top-of-a-vintage-building feel. I wonder if this is a standard finish or a builder option… probably the latter…

Plan Three @ The Hill in Lambert Ranch. Something really unique about the Hill is that two of the models – it must have been One & Two – can be purchased on one piece of property and combined into one compound estate – something I have never heard of another builder offering before. I don’t know how many people will excercise the option and buy two homes on one piece of land but I think for the right multi-generational family it could be ideal…
On that note, we’ll leave it at that for now. Bottom line? Great neighborhood priced right with no Mello Roos (a huge selling point). Homes are selling now for move-ins in Summer & Fall 2012.
