These three distinct architectural designs guide the selection of interior colors, fixtures and finishes, providing a rich, custom ambiance
San Marcos, CA (PRWEB) July 27, 2009
San Elijo Hills is celebrating the grand opening of MarketWalk, a collection of 12 townhomes featuring iconic architecture inspired by traditional "Main Streets" and impressively upgraded interiors. MarketWalk is set in the heart of the award-winning San Elijo Hills Towncenter above retail shops.
MarketWalk offers two- and three-story homes ranging from approximately 1,200 to 2,746 square feet with two to four bedrooms and 2.5 to 3.5 baths. The homes were built by San Elijo Hills Town Center LLC, a sister company to San Elijo Hills Development Company, which developed the 1,920-acre community. The townhomes are priced from the high $300,000s to the $700,000s and the three-story units meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.
"MarketWalk's prime location enables homeowners to take full-advantage of San Elijo Hills' vibrant towncenter and recreation-oriented lifestyle. Residences are situated above and will be surrounded by shopping and eateries, across the street from the picturesque town square, and just a short stroll from the 19-acre San Elijo Hills Park and the community's elementary and middle schools," said Mary Maloney, founder & owner of Hometown Realty, which is listing the homes for sale.
In keeping with the community's lively architectural mosaic, the designs of the townhomes include Italian, Colonial and Loft styles, crafted by noted architect Roger Basinger, Architects BP Associates. The streetscape looks as if the entire block grew organically over time.
"These three distinct architectural designs guide the selection of interior colors, fixtures and finishes, providing a rich, custom ambiance," said Maloney. "For instance, the contemporary Loft-styled homes include maple floors, black granite and sleek maple cabinetry. The Colonial style features dark wood floors, white and black granite counters and traditional white cabinetry; and the Italianate units feature porcelain tile flooring matched with earth-tone granite and traditional cherry ebony cabinetry. Each home features a designer-selected custom paint palette, carpeting, and highly upgraded fixtures that compliment the individual architectural style," she said.
High ceilings and large wood-trimmed windows create an open, airy feeling and gas fireplaces in the living area provide warmth and atmosphere. Selected plans feature terraces overlooking the leafy town square.
The spacious floorplans have been designed with maximum flexibility to accommodate home offices, growing families and guests. Amenities include stylish stainless steel appliances, and full-size stacked washer/dryer combinations on the bedroom level, and sumptuous master suites with spacious walk-in closets.
Exterior amenities include private entry courtyards and gated parking with private two-car garages and storage bays.
MarketWalk is one of the final components in the San Elijo Hills Towncenter, which has received numerous accolades, including a Gold Nugget Grand Award in the "Community/Town Plan" category at the Pacific Coast Builders Conference.
Information on MarketWalk residences is available at the model sales office, 1501 San Elijo Rd, San Marcos or at Hometown Realty, located at the San Elijo Hills Visitor Center, 1215 San Elijo Road, San Marcos. Both offices are open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
