Brookfield Residential at Rosedale in Azusa Welcomes First New Homeowners

AZUSA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/05/13 -- Brookfield Residential's first homebuyers are giving themselves the ultimate gift this year as they settle in to their brand-new homes at Palmetto at Rosedale, the San Gabriel Valley's #1 new master-planned community. With 17 homes closing escrow this month, it's going to be Happy Holidays indeed for the excited new residents of Palmetto by Brookfield Residential. Interested homebuyers are encouraged to visit Palmetto soon to take advantage of the neighborhood's unique combination of intelligent home designs, desirable features, great resort-style recreation, and a convenient location within walking distance to the future Metro Gold Line boarding station.

The appeal of low-maintenance attached living at Palmetto meets the high style Brookfield is known for in the thriving master-planned community of Rosedale. With prices starting from the $400,000s, Palmetto allows homeowners an affordable new-home option that offers upscale living within an amenity rich setting.

"In today's new-home market, it takes something really special to stop people in their tracks, and that's exactly what is happening at Palmetto," said Rocky Tracy, Vice President of Sales for Brookfield Residential. "Once homebuyers tour the homes, discover the great amenities and take in the beautiful natural surroundings, it's not a matter of should they buy. It's a matter of how soon can they get their keys. With our first homeowners moving in for the holidays, the neighborhood is really taking shape. It's a perfect time for homebuyers to come see the amazing lifestyle that awaits them at Palmetto."

Palmetto's distinctive floorplans offer the ideal new-home solution for a range of buyers with the most desirable features, including first-floor living suites, private decks and courtyard patios in some plans. Roommates will find a layout perfectly suited for their needs in Palmetto's Residence One. With approximately 1,447 square feet, this plan offers spacious living with a private bedroom and bath on the first floor and two additional bedrooms and two baths upstairs. Also on the second floor is an outdoor covered deck for entertaining.

Residence Two allows families to spread out in approximately 1,732 square feet of living space, with gracious areas for entertaining, spending time together, and retreating at the end of the day. The large family room, dining room, gourmet kitchen and oversized patio highlight the open, airy first floor. Upstairs, spacious bedrooms create a private oasis for each family member.

Residence Three was designed with the ultimate in comfort and convenience in mind. Approximately 2,090 square feet of spacious luxury is offered, with a large living room, gourmet kitchen, dining room, guest room, and Brookfield Residential's signature launch space on the main level. In addition to the three generous bedrooms and three baths upstairs, there is an optional loft that introduces even more functionality.

The pedestrian-friendly, amenity-packed community of Rosedale is a favorite among today's homebuyers, and with good reason. New-home neighborhoods within the community have been ideally planned to live in harmony with nature in the scenic foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Rosedale has set aside 290 acres for open space.
