Select locations are also enhanced  by spectacular views of the Bolsa Chica wetlands and the Pacific Ocean. Prices start at $1,299,000.


The Breakers presents Brightwater's largest and most luxurious residences, and many of them take on the added drama of ocean and wetlands views. These magnificent homes span approximately 3,162 to 4,339 square feet, with four to six bedrooms, three and one-half to six baths, plus a three- or four-car garage. Impressive fireplaces warm both the family room and living room in each home, private courtyards invite outdoor living, and bonus rooms or teen rooms expand the dimensions of most plans.

By purchasing now, new Brightwater homeowners can look forward to months of perfect Southern California weather – the ideal climate for swimming, surfing, sunbathing and sunset strolls along the miles and miles of pristine white beaches that helped earn Huntington Beach the moniker Surf City USA. And just steps from the beach, Huntington Beach's vibrant downtown abounds with shops, restaurants and night life.


Along with surfing, Huntington Beach is a mecca for many other sports and activities. Heading the list are roller blading, skateboarding, beach volleyball, swimming and disc Frisbee golf. Additional attractions include a beautiful 25-acre public equestrian center, Huntington Central Park and the world-renowned Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve.


For families with young children, Brightwater offers the educational excellence of Hope View Elementary School, which has been honored with the prestigious California Distinguished School award.


An added benefit is Huntington Beach's easy driving distance to almost every major Southern California tourist attraction. Disneyland is only 25 minutes away, and Brightwater is also close to more than 30 other well-known local attractions that include Universal Studios, Knott's Berry Farm and The newly renovated Queen Mary.


Home buyers at Brightwater will enjoy years of significant savings because the community has no Mello-Roos taxes and a low property tax rate of only 1.04%.
