    SANTA, CLARITA, CA, July 02, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Pardee Homes has earned two Gold Nugget Awards for Verano at Aliento in Santa Clarita. From more than 700 submissions to this year's competition, judges singled out Verano for a Grand Award as Best Age Qualified Senior Living Community, and Plan Two for a Merit Award as Best Single Family Detached Home of 1,500 to 2,499 square feet.

"We are delighted with these honors!" said Dave Little, President of Pardee Homes Los Angeles Ventura. "Verano represents an extraordinary collaboration by builder, architect and the entire team, and all of us are deeply appreciative."

Verano architecture is by Robert Hidey Architecture (RHA) of Irvine, California. Model home interiors are by Pacific Dimensions Inc. (PDI) and land planner is Sikand Engineering Associations.

"Verano's floorplans are expansive and inviting, and layout options offer an exceptional level of choice," said Gold Nugget judge Philip M. Hove, AIA, NCARB, President of HOVE Design Alliance in Newport Beach, California. "Fresh architecture and sophisticated materials make the homes and the club genuinely charming—we commend Pardee Homes and RHA on this design series!"

Homebuilding's oldest and most prestigious awards program, Gold Nugget honors excellence and innovation in architecture, neighborhood planning and sustainable development practices. Merit and Grand Award winners were celebrated Thursday, June 28 in San Francisco at PCBC, homebuilding's largest regional exposition and professional conference.

The Gold Nugget Awards for Verano are in harmony with what discerning 55+ buyers have already decided—this charming enclave offers a true lifestyle choice, with upscale new homes, club amenities and all the advantages of a thriving new master plan.

Boutique concepts—Verano's four single-level plans offer approximately 1,599 to 1,686 square feet of living space and up to 3 bedrooms. While each design is distinctively its own, all share key commonalities: defined foyers, gracious entertainment spaces with sleek island kitchens and private patios, resort style master retreats and generous storage. Buyers who want additional space can opt for any of these plans with a loft level that can bring total plan size to approximately 2,491 square feet.

Loft choices per plan allow for guest and junior master suites, bonus rooms, home offices and optional attic space for extra storage. "Buyers can gain extra space for guests, family or special projects," said Lyndsay Fuller, Director of Sales and Marketing for Pardee Homes Los Angeles Ventura. "Some want a game room for grandkids, while others are looking for adult retreat spaces. The flexibility is great!"

From home, Verano residents can walk to their own private club, where a striking tower element highlights the entry, and Farmhouse styling complements the new homes' architecture. Versatile indoor/outdoor amenities include a resort style pool/spa, outdoor kitchen, social bar with personal wine lockers, community garden, fitness center and WiFi stations.

"We asked RHA for inviting and flexible spaces for a wide array of activities, like socializing over beer and wine, hosting a dinner party by the pool and solo sessions for fitness, yoga and meditation," said Fuller. "Verano residents are shaping these spaces to suit themselves, and that's the point of all design concepts here."

Perhaps best of all is Verano's connectivity with Aliento's four family neighborhoods. "With stylish new homes for 55+ buyers, Verano is both a rarity in this area, and an integral part of a larger community that serves multiple generations," said Little. "Aliento also offers Verano residents abundant additional choices for activity and involvement."

Aliento's vibrant environment features open spaces, parks and trailheads, and a recreational/social center for all residents. Dining, retail, entertainment and services are minutes away, and proximity to regional freeways and Metrolink put residents within easy reach of all metro LA destinations

The 2018 Gold Nugget Awards add to Pardee's growing roster of honors for its Santa Clarita new home communities. Aliento and Arista have also earned recognition for excellence in design, planning and marketing in The Nationals, SoCal Awards and Best In American Living Awards (BALA).
