OXNARD, CA – Prices are the lowest they've been in years. Interest rates are at historic lows. And home buyers can save $10,000 with California's tax credit*. Add up these advantages, and it's clear that now is the time to stop renting and start owning. In Ventura County, there's no better place to start owning than RiverPark in Oxnard, where Shea Homes is offering three impressive new-home neighborhoods.

“If you thought you couldn't afford your own home, think again,” advised Janet Benavidez, vice president of sales and marketing for Shea Homes Southern California. “You can start enjoying all the benefits of home ownership right now at RiverPark, where the homes are designed and priced for buyers like you.”

Shea Homes' Reflections, Meridian and Boardwalk collection offer a wide selection of home designs and numerous opportunities for families to enjoy all the attractions that make RiverPark Oxnard's premier master-planned community: new schools, fun-filled parks, popular stores and restaurants, abundant recreation and family entertainment.  

Reflections is a collection of uniquely designed two-story attached homes that are a perfect fit for the lifestyles and budgets of first-time home buyers. Living areas measure approximately 1,338 to 1,475 square feet, including up to four bedrooms and two and one-half baths plus a covered porch or balcony and a two-car garage. Varying plans feature a versatile loft or a gourmet kitchen island, and every residence is enhanced by fine appointments, including granite kitchen countertops and European Thermafoil cabinets in a choice of three colors. Prices start in the mid $200,000s. 

Starting in the high $200,000s, Meridian's two-story attached homes range from approximately 1,301 to 1,980 square feet, with up to four bedrooms, two to three baths and a side-by-side two-car garage.  The highlight of these floor plans is the fact that all of the homes are end units, which allow natural light to extend throughout the homes.  Some of the floor plans offer an enclosed courtyard that extends living areas outdoors, while Plan One features two balconies for outdoor enjoyment. One plan features a downstairs bedroom, and many homes offer driveways for added off-street parking or car-washing.

Boardwalk presents spacious two-story courtyard residences that are ideal for young families. With prices beginning in the high $200,000s, the homes extend from approximately 1,758 to 2,162 square feet and encompass up to five bedrooms and three baths, and varying plans take on the added dimension of a master-suite retreat, bonus room or secluded study. One plan features a downstairs bedroom with a full bathroom. Touches of luxury extend throughout the homes, from granite kitchen countertops to stainless steel appliances.

RiverPark's extensive array of community amenities includes eight inviting parks that offer recreation opportunities ranging from tennis and basketball courts to children's playgrounds. The community's planned town center, The Collection at RiverPark, will encompass approximately 600,000 square feet of lifestyle retailers, restaurants and entertainment.

Children can walk or bicycle to one of two brand-new schools within RiverPark. Rio Del Mar Elementary and Rio Vista Middle School are both just a short distance from the Shea Homes neighborhoods.

To stop renting and start owning at RiverPark in Oxnard, travel the Ventura Freeway (101), exit at Oxnard Boulevard, then drive east and follow the signs to the individual neighborhoods. Boardwalk Information Center is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Wednesday from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Reflections and Meridian Information Centers are open Saturday through Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday from 2 to 6 p.m. and closed on Thursday and Friday.
