Grading underway at Watermark; a collection of New, Luxury Homes by Pardee

Grading is underway at Watermark by Pardee Homes, a new neighborhood of luxury homes planned for the coveted Pacific Highlands Ranch master-planned community. This distinctive collection of homes is anticipated to open for sale in early 2013.

“With limited coastal-close new home construction available, we have chosen to use this coveted location to build a breathtaking enclave of estate-like homes filled with impressive amenities,” said Matt Sauls, director of marketing for Pardee Homes. “From the over-sized gourmet kitchens to the expansive and luxurious master bedroom suites, Watermark will offer unsurpassed style and sophistication. Three unique floor plans will feature an array of room choices, such as an optional library, available outdoor living room, game nook or complete suite with private entry, to help you create your own vision of home.”

Elegant architectural design and eco-friendly features and options will be the hallmark of Watermark, which will include three two-story floor plans with five bedrooms and square footage ranging from approximately 3,394 to 4,163 square feet. Eighty-seven homes are planned.

“Watermark has been designed for today’s energy-conscious homebuyers by incorporating an array of standard and optional measures that boost energy efficiency, help reduce water consumption and improve indoor air quality,” said Sauls. “This is our LivingSmart® brand, and it is designed to offer added value to the homes at Watermark, providing homeowners with lower energy and water bills, greater indoor comfort and better resale value. With LivingSmart, energy efficiency exceeds California’s Title 24 criteria. Water-thrifty appliances, plumbing and the use of low VOC (volatile organic compound) materials are among the LivingSmart standards. Buyers can also add such features as photovoltaic systems for in-home solar power, whole house water filtration, and tankless water heaters.”

Located in coastal-close Pacific Highlands Ranch, adjacent to Carmel Valley, Watermark offers residents exclusive use of the private, resort-style Pacific Highlands Ranch recreation center, as well as proximity to beaches, shopping and many highly rated public and private schools. The neighborhood will be served by schools in the Solana Beach School District and San Dieguito Union High School District.

Established in 1921, Pardee Homes is active in California’s San Diego, Inland Empire and Los Angeles/Ventura markets, and in Las Vegas. The company emphasizes master-planned communities that include schools, parks and open space, and is noted for quality construction, customer service and dedication to the educational and civic goals of the communities in which it builds.
