SAN DIEGO, CA, December 14, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Finding a new home near the coast in San Diego was a challenge for Cynthia Baker and Lt. Cmdr. Will Smith, but they found a solution at Sorrento Heights, by Pardee Homes. Located above Sorrento Valley on the mesas and hills that overlook the natural canyons of Los Peñasquitos Canyon, Sorrento Heights is upscale in nature, and offers easy access to a variety of shopping and recreation, and employment centers in downtown San Diego, Torrey Pines, La Jolla, University City and UCSD, as well as the beaches of Del Mar and La Jolla.---
The Baker/Smith family purchased a Plan 1 home at Sorrento Heights after considering Carmel Valley. "Our number one reason for buying at Sorrento Heights was our desire to purchase a newly built house," said Cynthia Baker. "We had wanted to live in Carmel Valley but couldn't find anything new that fit our criteria and budget. We got everything we wanted and more, at a better price, than any resale homes we considered in Carmel Valley. Pardee Homes made it easy with a buying process that went smoothly and a sales team that was on top of every detail. Ricki Fein and Paola Gandara were so responsive to our every question and concern; they were there for us every step of the way."
Priced from the low $700,000s, Sorrento Heights features sophisticated, single-family detached homes with four bedrooms, two and one-half to three baths and approximately 2,155 to 2,509 square feet. Interior features include granite kitchen countertops, stainless steel kitchen appliances and the option of an outdoor room (per plan) complete with covered patio, lighting and media outlets. Spanish, French Cottage and Traditional styled architecture accents the homes in this hillside neighborhood.
Plan 1 offers great room living and a downstairs bedroom with three bedrooms upstairs. Plan 2 also has a spacious great room plus a versatile morning room adjacent to the gourmet kitchen, and the traditional styling of Plan 3, with four bedrooms, is ideal for growing families with its formal living room, family room, kitchen eating nook and second floor teen room.
"We love the open floor plan and having a downstairs room that serves as an office," said Baker. "We were also able to customize our home and upgraded the flooring with hardwood floors downstairs, a customized kitchen island and beautiful wrought iron staircase rail. It's great to have dual zone heating and air conditioning, too, which means we don't have to heat or cool the whole house."
Exciting design options at Sorrento Heights include a versatile outdoor room and the cutting-edge Nexia Home Intelligence System that helps homeowners conserve energy and reduce monthly costs by remotely managing lights, heating and air conditioning. And like all new homes built by Pardee, homes at Sorrento Heights include the eco-friendly LivingSmart package of energy saving features and options boost energy efficiency, help reduce water consumption and improve indoor air quality.
The Baker/Smith family moved into their new Sorrento Heights home in March and have found it is convenient to everything, including Interstates 15, 805 and 5. Lt. Cmdr. Smith can easily head south to the U.S. Naval base on Coronado, and their former neighborhood in Carmel Valley is just minutes away.
Final phases are nearing completion at Sorrento Heights and will include homes on large lots and adjacent to the canyon corridors. There are no Mello-Roos fees at Sorrento Heights. With the final phase releases imminent, Pardee Homes has announced the development of Sorrento Prestige Collection, slated to open for sale in January 2014 on the mesa above Sorrento Valley.
