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.
