IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2013) - The first new homes to debut in the Irvine Village of Woodbridge for more than 15 years, The Branches by William Lyon Homes is an instant sensation. Sales for this limited opportunity have been overwhelming since the recent model grand opening and the latest phase was released to keep up with incredible demand. Offering the rare financial benefit of no Mello Roos fees, low HOA dues and a coveted address in Woodbridge, The Branches is a must-see for local buyers who want to enjoy the privileges of a brand new home in a premier Irvine setting.

"As sales at The Branches continue at an unprecedented pace, it is very important for prospective homebuyers to visit the sales gallery at their earliest convenience to tour the models, get pre-qualifying information and choose their favorite floorplan," said Lesley Pennington, Vice President of Sales for William Lyon Homes. "This brand new Irvine neighborhood features just 48 single-family residences in the entire collection and that sense of exclusivity has prompted early demand among consumers who recognize how rare and special this opportunity is. The Village of Woodbridge is a well-established destination for couples, families and professionals, and the availability of a new neighborhood in the heart of this village is exciting news for buyers who have waited quite some time to purchase a pristine home in these vibrant surroundings."

Thoughtfully designed to accommodate a diversity of lifestyles and expectations, The Branches' floorplans range from approximately 2,209 to 2,557 square feet of two-story living space, with three to five bedrooms, 2.5 to three baths and two-car garages; exteriors showcase Early Californian and Traditional architectural themes. The neighborhood is surrounded by meandering streets and nestled in a tranquil corner of North Lake adjacent to the newly improved Fallbrook Park, and a single entrance greets homeowners. Prices are from the low $1 millions.

Homeowners at The Branches will enjoy immediate access to a fantastic array of recreational amenities, including two lakes with docks, beach lagoons, 22 swimming pools, tennis courts, parks and miles of trails. Neighborhood schools within the Irvine Unified School District are highly rated and within easy driving distance, a convenience and privilege for the neighborhood's young students. A premium location near business, shopping, dining and entertainment destinations, as well as John Wayne Airport is another benefit for buyers with busy lifestyles.

The coveted Irvine setting of The Branches 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."
