MENIFEE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2013) - The dream of a grand new home is alive and well in Menifee! Homebuyers searching for an incredible value on a spacious new residence with lots of room for everyday living, entertaining and their sports toys are finding everything they want and more at Brookfield Homes' new Big Sky neighborhood within Audie Murphy Ranch. Offering beautiful new homes with three to six bedrooms, 2,794 to 3,837 square feet of living space and prices from the low $300,000s, it's no wonder Big Sky has already become a local wonder. The neighborhood has welcomed more than 1,560 visitors since its recent Grand Opening and interest remains high, especially among those who already live in the area and can see the advantages of moving up to the spacious luxury of Big Sky. Interested home shoppers are encouraged to hurry in today for early phase opportunities!

"We have enjoyed a tremendous response from homebuyers in the surrounding area," said Rocky Tracy, Vice President of Sales for Brookfield Homes. "Many of them saw our models being built and immediately put their homes on the market so they could buy here at Big Sky. The opportunity to own a large, brand-new home in a great Brookfield neighborhood with modern amenities and at a low price was too hard to resist. With all that Big Sky has to offer, it's no wonder homebuyers are discovering just how valuable living here can be. They clearly know a great thing when they see it."

With a name like Big Sky, you might expect the homes and lots to be large, and you would be right. Brookfield Homes appreciates how today's families live, and has built Big Sky homes to host the most practical and desirable amenities for buyers in all stages of life, such as immense great rooms with optional fireplaces, sizeable dining rooms, oversized bedrooms, large spaces that can be used for crafting and other activities, super laundry rooms, abundant closet space, and plenty of storage for toys and holiday decorations. In addition, three- and four-car garages give homeowners the extra space they have always wanted to store their RVs, boats, dirt bikes and ATVs.

Adding to the value of these remarkable homes is the option of solar panels. Not only do solar panels offer a green alternative to traditional energy consumption, but they also offer homeowners the advantage of saving on the cost of electricity. Savings range depending on each home's energy usage, but can amount to thousands of dollars per year for the average user. There may also be state and federal rebates to provide further incentives.

Big Sky's Residence One is a hit with mature couples with its spacious single-story floorplan that offers three to four bedrooms and 2,794 square feet. Residence Two is a spectacular two-story, 3,266 square-foot home that features five bedrooms and an optional private first-floor living suite with, or without a kitchenette. This innovative feature offers residents who choose this option a living area with its own side entrance that is connected to the house but still enjoys exceptional privacy. The 3,837 square-foot Residence Three presents two stories of luxurious living space, with five to six bedrooms, the private living suite option and the opportunity to add a gracious deck off of the master bedroom, which offers additional space for an outdoor room below. This option has proven to be a favorite of homebuyers who appreciate Big Sky's view orientations, natural scenery and extra outdoor living areas.

Audie Murphy Ranch is a new master-planned community set amidst 1,100 rolling acres of
