Distinct and diverse homes from a trusted name

Model homes are under construction and preview center is set to open March 17 at Barratt American's affordably priced BellaSol, a Spanish-styled community of both single-family courtyard homes and stylish townhomes in the highly popular French Valley.

"BellaSol will present a diverse selection of lifestyle options in a recreation-rich, gated community environment, appealing widely to young families, empty nesters and singles," said Michael D. Pattinson, president of the multiaward-winning building firm.

"Offered with budget-conscious attainability from the low $300,000s, BellaSol is the answer to the clamor from today's home buyers for a quality, well-located home at reasonable cost and with comfortable monthly payments."

Comprising an eventual 108 attached and 39 detached residences, BellaSol will introduce leading-edge floorplans of one to four bedrooms and 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 baths, ranging broadly from 1,100 to 2,190 square feet on one and two levels. Gated entry promotes both privacy and homeowner peace of mind. Interested persons may join the BellaSol interest list at Barratt's newly upgraded Web site at

Community amenities at BellaSol include grassy parks and recreational facilities, a tots' playground and a handsome pool/sundeck complex. With a host of visitor-friendly angling/boating/camping lakes both to the north and south, BellaSol is a short distance from the myriad leisure-time attractions of the greater Temecula area "wine country."

Community youngsters will attend schools in the sought-after Temecula Valley Unified School District.

Grand opening of model homes is set for early Summer 2007, with interiors designed by widely honored Klang and Associates. Architect for BellaSol is the acclaimed firm of Pekarek-Crandell. Smartly sculpted interiors at BellaSol will feature inviting entries of choice ceramic tile, dual-panel vinyl-frame windows with low-emissivity glass, plush wall-to-wall carpeting, rounded wall corners, interior laundry rooms, 40-gallon energy-saver water heaters, master suites with walk-in closets and countertops of cultured marble, prewiring for cable TV and telephone, and central forced-air heating and air conditioning.

Up-to-the-minute kitchens at BellaSol will spotlight a complement of built-in appliances including self-cleaning oven and vent hood, multicycle dishwasher and digital microwave. Further chef-pleasing highlights will include countertops and backsplashes of hand-set ceramic, pressed-steel double sinks with waste disposal and lever-handle mixing faucet, and fine natural-wood cabinetry with easy-open drawer slides.

Barratt will pre-install front-yard landscaping with automatic sprinkler systems and side and rear-yard fencing.

A wide choice of "Personal Touch" options and upgrades will enable buyers to customize their new BellaSol residence with taste and flair.

Stringent observance of energy-conserving and water-saving factors will contribute to home comfort and reduced costs at BellaSol, without sacrifice of operating efficiencies. Barratt's long-standing commitment to quality control, including third-party inspections at key stages of work, underscores a multidecade reputation for superb craftsmanship.

"We are a relationship company committed to building trust, communication and respect with our homeowners for years to come," Pattinson added. "It is Barratt's goal to exceed home-buyer expectations in every respect."

Strong warranty coverage and responsive customer service are hallmarks of the Southern California building firm, given top ratings for customer satisfaction by independent survey. The firm was recently honored as second in the nation in customer service and overall home-purchase experience in the prestigious Eliant rankings.

In the greater Temecula/Murrieta/Winchester area are a number of multifaceted parks, with playing fields, tennis and basketball courts, pools, skateboard centers, volleyball courts, strolling paths and picnic facilities. Premier golf courses accommodate all levels of play. Outstanding equestrian venues are another highlight of this agreeable region, once bustling cattle and cowboy country.

Within the burgeoning community of French Valley itself there soon will be four well-equipped parks totaling 36 acres, as well as a multipurpose gymnasium.

Not far from BellaSol along Winchester Road is the huge new anglers' paradise of Diamond Valley Lake, Southern California's largest freshwater reservoir, holding nearly 260 billion gallons. Built at a cost of over $2 billion, Diamond Valley Lake covers some 4,600 acres and will eventually include an additional 2,000 acres of on-shore and associated recreation facilities.

Southwest Riverside County also offers a full range of shopping opportunities, colorful hot-air balloon festivals, gourmet dining and wine tasting at the many prize-winning wineries, rugged hiking trails, vast open-space preserves, the Old Town Temecula historic district, and gaming and night life at the spectacular Pechanga Casino and Resort. Also convenient are excellent public libraries, modern medical complexes, houses of worship and civic services.

Central location and nearby Interstate 15 facilitate commutes to employment centers in San Diego, Los Angeles and Orange counties, and the Inland Empire.

BellaSol may be reached by taking Winchester Road (state Route 79) north off Interstate 15, turning right on Pouroy and following signs to the sales/information office which is located at Barratt American's Capistrano model complex. Hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily except Monday 1 to 6. Visit for more information.

As a part of Barratt's "Good Neighbor" program, a special 2.5 percent discount will be offered to firefighters, police officers, nurses, teachers and military personnel.

"Distinct and diverse homes from a trusted name" is the proud motto of the long-established local builder, active in Southern California since 1980 and responsible for more than 18,000 homes. Pattinson is a recent past president of the state Building Industry Association and a member of the California Building Industry Hall of Fame.
