BEAUMONT, CA, January 08, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The perfect start to a new life together often includes a 'first home' and for Austin Howard of Riverside, that also included a marriage proposal. After finding a new home that he and his girlfriend Alexis Lunney could afford to buy, and that was in a location that worked for them both, the next step was planning a proposal.
"We were both excited about our new home at Pardee's LivingSmart Homes Estrella in Beaumont," said Austin Howard. ""Getting a home together, our first home, was an exciting new experience that demonstrated our commitment to each other and our common goal to step up our lifestyle. I was planning on proposing and wanted it to be perfect, so I thought our new home would make a great setting. Since the home was still under construction, I took Alexis to the Estrella models and we went into the Plan 1 home. Luckily it was empty, so I surprised her with the proposal and it was perfect."
The happy couple will be married in March 2015 and are expecting to move into their new Pardee home in late March or early April.
"It's exciting to see so many first-time buyers like Austin and Alexis discover they can buy a home at LivingSmart Homes Estrella where carefree living, open floor plans and eco-friendly features come together in a thriving master planned community," said Matt Sauls, regional marketing director for Pardee Homes. "We wish them many years of happiness and comfort in their new home."
Priced from the high $100,000s LivingSmart Homes Estrella brings three new floor plan choices to master-planned Sundance in Beaumont. The homes have three to four bedrooms, two and one-half to three baths and approximately 1,630 to 1,919 square feet. All three two-story plans include welcoming entries, dramatic interior spaces, gourmet kitchens with slab granite countertops, roomy pantries, General Electric stainless steel finish appliances, large walk-in closets in the master bedroom, linen storage and two-bay garages.
In addition, buyers may select from a number of design packages created especially for Estrella, with such optional features as upgraded lighting, General Electric Profile series appliances and flat screen TV pre-wiring in the great room. Room options (per plan) may include the addition of an optional loft, fourth bedroom or tub/shower combination in the master bedroom.
Exceptional features such as front-yard landscaping, low maintenance backyards and great room living are among the many reasons why this neighborhood is a good fit for first-time buyers. Each thoughtfully planned home is loaded with energy-saving options that help the homeowner save money on utilities. The gated enclave of LivingSmart Homes Estrella will include a total of approximately 127 single-family detached homes.
Like all new homes built by Pardee, LivingSmart Homes Estrella features the LivingSmart package of standard and optional features that help reduce energy use and utility bills and conserve water usage.

The program includes HealthSmart features that foster healthy living and cleaner air; EnergySmart technology that reduces energy use and utility bills; EarthSmart materials that come from recycled and sustainable sources; and WaterSmart features and landscape design that help conserve water usage."
