The New Home Bulletin: Hawthorn at Pavilion Park at the Great Park in Irvine

Who: Hawthorn at Pavilion Park by Pulte Home


What: I’m always excited to talk about all of the new developments in Irvine, but the newest – the Great Park Neighborhoods – is something else altogether. The master developer of the project, Five Point Communities, is rallying around a slogan that reads “Life will be different here”. If the new Pavilion Park neighborhood is any indicator, they might be right.

The new Pavilion Park development officially opened for business this past weekend and I’ve been there every day since (I’m not a developer stalker or anything – it’s as much admiration of the place plus the fact that we live nearby and sometimes I drive the neighborhood to put my son to sleep in the evening). You all know I’ve lived in Irvine since the early 70’s and am no stranger to the amount of forethought that the Irvine Company puts into its projects, but this might be the first time we’ve seen a partnership with another company (Five Point Communities) on this scale in Irvine. I am taken aback by the beauty and well thought-out planning of this community.

It’s also nice to see that the architectural direction has veered away in part from its typical Mediterranean-meets-Tuscany feel and added styles with American Traditional, Farmhouse, and Craftsman echoes.

What are also exciting are the single level family properties and models with main floor Master Bedrooms.  Whether or not you know it, single level new homes can be really hard to find because they just aren’t built all that often; home builders make more money on two-story homes because the second-story building costs are less than the lower level buildout and you can sell more square footage for, well, more. What’s interesting is that, over the years, single-level homes have almost always outpaced the sales price per square foot of their two-story neighbors. People want single level homes. It sounds like home builders have got that message.

The Hawthorn tract by Pulte Homes has taken that measure one step further – they have a single story model and both of their two-story models have main floor master bedrooms which appeals to buyers who appreciate not having to go upstairs.

Here are a few of the specs & photos for the models at Hawthorn:

An interesting entry at the Residence 1 @ Hawthorn in Pavilion Park; you walk essentially into a wall that breaks left and right… don’t know how I felt about this… was pretty but seemed to stop the energy as you came in…

The Kitchen, Dining & “Gathering Room” @ Residence 1 @ Hawthorn in Pavilion Park (Note – I noticed a couple of interesting naming conventions that Pulte Homes used in describing the rooms in the home – “Great Room” has been changed to “Gathering Room”; “Wok Kitchen” to “High Heat Kitchen”; and probably most notably – “Master Bedroom” to “Owner’s Suite”.)
