The San Diego Division of John Laing Homes will unveil its Model Homes at Silhouette, the newest neighborhood at 4S Ranch, a 2,900-acre development adjacent to Rancho Bernardo. These homes are on the forefront of a trend where residential developers incorporate new technologies in their homes. These modern homes also include classic architecture.

On Saturday, March 11th at 10 am, John Laing Homes executives and Silhouette Home Counselors will welcome members of their Interest List and the general public to Silhouette’s Model Home Grand Opening. The 96-home community is the newest neighborhood at 4S Ranch, a 2,900-acre development adjacent to Rancho Bernardo.

In addition to viewing the homes at Silhouette – John Laing Homes’ newest San Diego County neighborhood – those who attend the Grand Opening will see the forefront of a trend whereby residential developers incorporate new technologies in their homes. Silhouette includes electronic amenities such as indoor and outdoor cameras, motion sensors, carbon monoxide detectors, keypads, and controlled home lighting.

“Our aim is to produce a quality home with the amenities that buyers desire,” said Marianne Browne, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the San Diego Division of John Laing Homes.    

In addition, every residence at Silhouette is infused with John Laing Homes’ expert craftsmanship and personalized floorplans in classic architectural styles including Monterey, Mediterranean and European. In addition to its oversized living spaces, Silhouette’s large kitchens can accommodate an entire family preparing meals together, or a professional caterer creating a gourmet event. Enjoying up to 3,356 square feet, five bedrooms and four and a half baths, Silhouette’s superior design lets buyers experience the combined beauty of nature and home.

“The homes at Silhouette were designed for the mild climate of the San Diego area,” said Silhouette’s architect, Adele Chang, Principal of Lim Chang Rohling & Associates, Inc. “With that in mind, we intended for Silhouette’s outside spaces – courtyards, balconies loggias and porches – to encourage the flow of activities from the indoors to the outdoors, expanding the already very livable and open floorplans.”

“We look forward to introducing people to the new homes at Silhouette,” said Browne, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the San Diego Division of John Laing Homes. “Silhouette is a unique opportunity, because it offers upscale homes with modern amenities in a hard-to-find natural, rural environment. Inside, Silhouette’s generously sized rooms are excellent for entertaining or relaxing.”

Silhouette’s prized location is located directly adjacent to 4S Commons, a 53-acre town center with a community green reminiscent of small American towns, along with shopping, restaurants, entertainment, day-care services and a library. 4S Commons is envisioned as a place that families can enjoy together – all while socializing with neighbors.    

In addition, Silhouette’s prime location at 4S Ranch makes it a part of the award-winning Poway Unified School District (PUSD), which had 25 National Merit Scholarship Finalists in 2004 and boasts eight San Diego County Teachers of the Year within the last nine years. PUSD’s high school graduates also won more than $5 million in academic scholarships in 2004.

In 2005, the San Diego Division of John Laing Homes received Eliant’s national “Best Homebuying Experience” and “Purchase Experience” award – a remarkable feat for a team that is only three years old.

The Eliant awards (previously called the Homebuyers’ Choice Awards) are presented by research firm Eliant, rating approximately 200 homebuilders across the country based on over 400,000 new homebuyer surveys. These awards have come to be known as the standard by which homebuilders nationwide are judged. Eliant utilizes cutting-edge tracking and information management systems to provide builders with a blueprint for delivering extraordinary customer experiences, thereby raising the bar for builders large and small.
