Infill Development 30 Minutes from Downtown Los Angeles Features Elegant, Energy-Efficient Houses with Spectacular Views

WEST HILLS, Calif. , Feb. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Watt Communities and Presidio Residential Capital recently announced that sales are open at New Heights, a $25-million gated community offering 43 single-family homes in the West Hills neighborhood northwest of Los Angeles.

“Not only are these beautiful homes located in a highly desirable Southern California neighborhood, but they also include everything young families today could want, from private yards and decks to cutting-edge energy-efficient features,” said Nam Joe, Southern California Division President for Watt Communities, which specializes in infill development. “We’re excited to debut these quality homes in this sought-after community of West Hills.”

New Heights offers four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath homes with open floorplans ranging from 2,069 to 2,200 square feet with private yards and decks that allow residents to take in gorgeous views. The homes feature a downstairs bedroom and bath, designer finishes, spacious kitchens with energy-efficient appliances and generous pantry space. Private master suites come with roomy walk-in closets. Every home includes solar panels, a two-car garage pre-wired for electric car charging, water-efficient fixtures and other high-performance energy-saving features.

The new community is located at 22135 W. Roscoe Boulevard in West Hills, close to the 101 and 118 freeways in the western San Fernando Valley. West Hills offers an abundance of parks, convenient shopping, recreational opportunities and schools.

The New Heights project marks Watt Communities’ fifth joint venture project with Presidio Residential Capital, a San Diego-based real estate investment company.

 

Sentinel staff report–
Construction on Watt Communities’ massive 260-home development off Arcadia Drive and Fair Oaks Boulevard in Citrus Heights is anticipated to begin later this year, with completion of the first homes expected by 2020.

The 56-acre development, known as Mitchell Farms, will feature about 25 acres of open space parks and was approved by the Planning Commission and City Council last year. Watt Communities’ spokeswoman Diana Murphy told The Sentinel no grading or construction activity has begun yet at the site as of this month, but she said plans are being finalized and grading work is expected to begin in April, followed by construction several months later.

“We expect construction to begin in summer, but it really depends on how quickly the grading goes and all of the other things that go along with trying to [get started],” Murphy told The Sentinel on Friday. “It’s a huge project, so there’s a lot of T’s to cross.”

She said the development is the largest Watt has undertaken in Northern California, with the company typically taking on infill projects in the 17-60 unit range. Watt is currently finishing up a 15-home development in Citrus Heights off Antelope Road, and also completed the 46-home AutumnWood housing development off Antelope Road near Interstate 80 several years ago.

Murphy estimated homes in the new Mitchell Farms development will start being completed in early 2020. “It’ll take us at least a couple years to build them all,” she said.

Homes will be grouped in five general “villages,” with sizes ranging from around 1,400-square-feet to approximately 2,000-square-feet, Murphy said. All homes in the development will feature three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, with the exception of larger-lot homes that will have a loft that can likely be converted into a fourth bedroom.

“We anticipate prices starting in the mid-3’s, going into the high 4’s,” Murphy said, although noting that pricing is subject to change between now and when the homes are completed, depending on the housing market.

Homes in the various villages will range in lot size and layout, with 76 larger-lot homes featuring a 50-by-80-foot yard, while others will be on much smaller lots.

The new housing development was popular among planning commissioners during a public hearing held last year, with many commenting on the need for additional housing to help alleviate the housing crisis affecting the state. Only 79 new housing units were constructed in Citrus Heights between 2013 and 2017, according to a draft environmental report prepared for the project.

A popular aspect of the project has been the large amount of open space incorporated in the development, as a large swath down the middle of the acreage must remain undeveloped due to a 100-year flood plain associated with Arcade Creek. Under an agreement with the Sunrise Recreation and Parks District, the undeveloped acreage will become part of the parks district.

New streets running through the development and connecting with Arcadia Drive and Fair Oaks Boulevard have yet to be named, but Murphy said Watt Communities hopes to do the same as it did with its Mariposa Creek development underway off Antelope Road. The new street installed in that development, Turner Court, was named in honor of the late-Councilman Mel Turner.

“There’s a lot of history on that site so we want to honor that,” said Murphy, referencing the Mitchell Farms site. The 56-acre parcel had been owned by Ted Mitchell, whose family purchased 160 acres in Citrus Heights for $1,600 in gold coins over 100 years ago, according to an interview published by the city’s former History & Arts Commission. Mitchell, now in his nineties, is believed to be the city’s longest-living resident and still owns a significant amount of acreage in the area, including the land where the Citrus Town Center sits.

Sentinel staff report–
Although construction won’t be complete for several more months, home sales have already begun at a new housing development in Citrus Heights, located off Antelope Road.

The 15-home development, called Mariposa Creek, is being built by Watt Communities and features both single and two-story designs, with homes ranging in size from 1,966-square-feet to just under 2,500-square-feet. Single-story homes feature a three-bedroom, tw0-bath layout, while two-story homes include four bedrooms, three baths, and an upper story loft that can potentially be made into a fifth bedroom. Both options include a two-car garage.

Watt Communities spokeswoman Diana Murphy told The Sentinel on Friday that pre-sales have begun for the new homes, with the first sale already completed and more expected over the weekend. Prices for the homes range from $442,990 to $492,990, according to Watt Communities’ website.

Murphy said construction of all 15 homes are expected to be completed in April and May.

The new development is located on a 3.5-acre property that was once voted on by the City Council as a “preferred site” to build a new city hall back in 2014. The property was later sold by the city, and Watt Communities received approval from the Planning Commission to subdivide the property and add a new street called “Turner Court,” named after the late Councilman Mel Turner who passed away in 2017 while serving his second term on the City Council.

Watt Communities has been involved in several current and past housing projects within Citrus Heights, including the 46-home AutumnWood development off Antelope Road near Interstate 80 and the current 260-unit Mitchell Farms project to be built off Arcadia Drive.
