RIVERSIDE, CA, April 03, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Russell Miller and Matt Maisenbacher, best friends since high school, are creating new memories and excited to have their four kids grow up together now that they are both homeowners in the same family-oriented neighborhood in Canyon Hills. Both have purchased brand new homes in this thriving Lake Elsinore master-planned community and are very happy to be living within a minute of each other.
"We are so excited that our kids will grow up together," said Miller. "You can't put a value on that. Matt and I met as freshmen in high school and my wife Erin and I encouraged the Maisenbachers to look for a home here in Canyon Hills. We bought a big Plan 7X with a bonus room at LivingSmart Homes Canyon Hills and Matt and Vanessa bought at Meadow Ridge, just down the street. We are looking forward to making more memories together."
The Millers love their new home with a big backyard, providing lots of space for their active three-year old son to play. The bonus room is a playroom, decorated with Disney Pixar movie posters and filled with toys. Erin Miller is able to stay home with the children and is thrilled to have a spare bedroom for guests and a big walk-in closet in the master bedroom.
"We didn't think we'd ever be able to buy a new home," said Miller who moved from Orange County. "We looked in Corona first but fell in love with the Canyon Hills community and are so happy to have a home in the Menifee school district, which was very important to us. I feel like a millionaire in this home and feel so comfortable knowing we have energy-saving features, shopping, parks and good friends and neighbors nearby."
Matt and Vanessa Maisenbacher and their two sons moved to Canyon Hills from Riverside and are pleased to be among other young families with children. The allure of having a brand new home in a nice, quiet community was an added bonus to living near the Miller family.
"It's a terrific community with very friendly neighbors," said Maisenbacher. "Our Meadow Ridge home is great, especially the kitchen, fireplace and the luxury of having four bedrooms. And with all the standard energy-saving features our energy bills are half of what we were paying in our last home."
