IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/14/12 -- The charming architecture that will grace The Branches in the Village of Woodbridge and Willow Bend in University Park are now online -- a great way to get up-close with these brand new single-family detached home neighborhoods that will be conveniently located within two coveted Irvine communities. Visit www.lyonthebranches.com and www.lyonwillowbend.com today and enjoy a personal view of the different exterior styles available per floorplan at these highly anticipated William Lyon Homes addresses. Homebuyers are encouraged to take a first look now and get one step closer to their new Irvine home of a lifetime, one that will also offer the added benefit of no Mello Roos fees and low HOA dues.

"The architecture sets the tone for a new neighborhood and is an important factor for buyers who have a certain vision and expectation of their home's appearance and design," explained Lesley Pennington, Vice President of Sales for William Lyon Homes. "People who visit the individual websites will get a sneak peek at the exterior styles and gain a better sense of the neighborhoods' different architecture and even decide which one is their favorite. For instance, Willow Bend will showcase California Ranch and Craftsman exterior styles, while The Branches will offer Early Californian and Traditional architecture. While quaint window boxes and traditional shutters will be displayed in select floorplans, both Irvine neighborhoods will offer fresh color palettes as well as extensive windows to infuse beautiful interiors with soft natural lighting.

"As we move closer to the 2013 openings of The Branches and Willow Bend, prospective homebuyers should take advantage of the online information available to them. The artwork is a revealing look at the architectural influences at these Irvine neighborhoods and another exciting step for buyers who are eager to become more familiar with the different aspects of design that will soon be unveiled."

A limited opportunity of just 48 residences, The Branches will signify the first new home neighborhood in more than 15 years within the established Village of Woodbridge. This brand new Irvine address will be surrounded by meandering streets and nestled in a tranquil corner of North Lake adjacent to Fallbrook Park; a single entrance to emphasize a sense of privacy will greet homeowners. Three beautiful, two-story floorplans will range from approximately 2,209 to 2,542 square feet, with three to five bedrooms, 2.5 to three baths and two-car garages. Prices are anticipated to start from the $900,000s.

Residents at The Branches will enjoy instant access to established recreation where they can play, stroll and socialize, including beach clubs, lagoons, tennis courts, parks and miles of trails. The newly improved Fallbrook Park and neighborhood schools within the top Irvine Unified School District are also within walking distance. Well-suited for busy homeowners who demand easy accessibility throughout Orange County, the neighborhood will showcase a premium location near business, shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, as well as John Wayne Airport.

Willow Bend will debut an intimate enclave of just 58 residences, the only new home offering of this size to be built for 25 years in University Park, one of Irvine's most respected master planned communities. Three beautiful, two-story floorplans will range from approximately 2,209 to 2,556 square feet, with three to five bedrooms, 2.5 to three baths and two-car garages. Prices are anticipated to start from the $900,000s.

Residents of Willow Bend will have fantastic recreational opportunities to delight every family member and access to the acclaimed Irvine Unified School District. Students will attend the highly ranked University High School, which was listed among the top 10 in Newsweek's ranking of the nation's Best High Schools in 2011. Willow Bend is also located near University of California, Irvine, an exceptional institution for higher learning. Residents will be within easy reach of William R. Mason Regional Park, a 345-acre natural sanctuary with its own nine-acre lake, biking paths, model boat sailing and wilderness hiking area. Nearby community parks have opportunities for soccer, tennis, sand volleyball and picnicking; golf enthusiasts can hit the links at nearby Rancho San Joaquin or Strawberry Farms Golf Clubs. Two nearby retail centers offer convenient shopping and Willow Bend will be just minutes away from the world-class boutiques of Fashion Island and Corona Del Mar, the 405 Freeway and Orange County's major business and leisure destinations.

The coveted Irvine settings of The Branches and Willow Bend will reinforce to future buyers the exceptional lifestyle they will experience as residents here -- the city of Irvine was ranked sixth by CNN Money as one of America's best small cities, with 44 miles of bike trails, 20,000 acres of parks and preserves, and a beach 10 miles away. CNN Money noted in a recent article that "Thanks to smart planning, this big city can feel surprisingly small. The 40-year-old community is divided into 40 'villages,' and a minimum of five acres of park space is added for every 1,000 newcomers."
