Today, we’re not only excited to showcase Marston and other home designs new to Del Sur; we’re also excited to share Del Sur’s unmatched community spirit.

Today at 10 a.m., families will delight in the sunshine, sand, and smell of new hardwood floors at Del Sur. The San Diego new home community, located just north of Rancho Santa Fe in San Diego, is throwing a new home beach party - Del Sur style.

During the event, the public is invited to tour brand new estate-style model homes at Marston by Standard Pacific Homes. Within walking distance of Marston will be a sand zone where award-winning team Archisand will sculpt Del Sur Sand Homes (sandcastles) from 50 tons of sand. The team will build replicas of Del Sur’s newest model homes, as well as a replica of the community’s final school underway: Poway Unified School District’s Design 39 Campus.

“Today, we’re not only excited to showcase Marston and other home designs new to Del Sur; we’re also excited to share Del Sur’s unmatched community spirit,” said Bill Ostrem, president of Black Mountain Ranch. “Sandcastle fun and model home tours will give folks a taste of the enjoyable, well-rounded community that we’ve established.”

The beach party will include a sandcastle zone, a sampling of summertime music, food and drinks, and model homes tours at the following model locations:

Marston by Standard Pacific Homes. At Marston, guests can enjoy the sand zone, summertime tunes from Mango Bay Band, and surf-style cuisine from Epic Eatz.
