HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – Summer’s arrival spotlights the irresistible appeal of the award-winning designs at Christopher Homes’ Pacific Shores in Huntington Beach, a private, gated community just three blocks from the waves where you can enjoy your home and your vacation…year-round. Large numbers of home buyers have already realized the value, propelling a brisk sales pace at Pacific Shores.


The Villas was honored with the prestigious Building Industry Gold Nugget Grand Award as Residential Project of the Year for Attached Product within a Suburban Setting, while The Bungalows was honored within the same category with a Merit Award.


The award winning designs and vacation lifestyle go hand in hand with a Pacific Shores address, and it is shared by residents of both of the community’s neighborhoods – the casual townhomes of The Bungalows and the luxury attached courtyard homes of The Villas. The Bungalows, which has just introduced a brand-new floor plan, is already selling its fourth phase, and ocean-view homes are now selling in the fourth phase at The Villas.


The Bungalows’ new Residence Four provides ease of living with dual master suites, including one on the first floor that makes stair-free living an everyday reality. Spanning approximately 2,133 square feet, the home also features a free-flowing great room that opens to both a side courtyard for outdoor living and entertaining and a covered front porch. The great room’s expanse continues into a gourmet island kitchen with walk-in pantry. A spacious loft or optional bedroom enhance the home’s versatility, and select versions of Residence Four feature a secluded third floor with bedroom, bath and loft that increases the total square footage to 2,674.


The Bungalows meets the needs of a broad spectrum of home buyers, from single households to growing families, with five additional two- and three-story townhome plans that range from approximately 1,481 to 2,606 square feet, including two, three or four bedrooms and up to 4.5 baths.


Each plan embodies the relaxed contemporary feeling of today’s beach lifestyle. Spacious gourmet kitchens combine style and convenience, and versatility is maximized by a variety of flex spaces, including a super loft spanning more than 500 square feet, a private master suite retreat or a multipurpose room. Creating a custom-like community ambiance, architecture includes a mix of Spanish, Andalusian, Plantation and Coastal styles. Prices currently start in the high $500,000s and range up to the high $700,000s. Residences Two, Three and Four offer both two- and three-story designs. The two-story homes are value-priced from the low $700,000s.


Sought-after appointments extend throughout the homes. Kitchens feature slab granite countertops, a choice of wood-stain or white Thermofoil cabinets, built-in Whirlpool® Gold® stainless steel appliances and 13”x13” ceramic tile flooring. Master suite baths heighten personal comfort with ceramic tile countertops and shower walls, clear-glass frameless shower enclosures and large walk-in closets. Architectural flair is created by uniquely designed passages, volume spaces, recessed lighting in select locations and even such striking touches as decorative glass block for light and privacy.


The Bungalows offers an array of green living comforts: dual 13 SEER air conditioning and gas forced-air heating with pilotless ignition, Honeywell® programmable digital thermostat, Rinnai® tankless energy-efficient water heater, water-saving shower heads and faucets, energy-saving dual-pane Low-E glass insulating vinyl windows and complete exterior insulation.


The Bungalows shares the private, gated environs of Pacific Shores with The Villas, where luxury soars to dramatic heights while offering residents the carefree convenience of attached-home living. Winner of two prestigious national awards, The Villas is a collection of three-story floor plans spanning approximately 3,527 to 4,142 square feet, including four to five bedrooms, 4.5 to 5.5 baths, plus loft space for entertainment and parties and a three-car attached garage. Two of the plans are enhanced by a first-floor bedroom and adjoining bath, and architectural styles feature Coastal, Andalusian and Spanish designs. Prices start in the low $1 Millions.


Renowned architects have compared The Villas to a custom-home community, noting the individual styling of each home’s exterior and such extraordinary refinements as gourmet island kitchens; ultra-spacious, fireplace-warmed great rooms; grand master suites with private decks; versatile lofts; crown molding in selected areas and optional elevators for unsurpassed convenience.


The centerpiece of every Villas residence is an extra-spacious courtyard that will enable residents to share all the advantages of coastal living, from outdoor relaxation to al fresco entertaining.  And each home is topped off with a third-floor bedroom suite that may be selected as an optional loft with wet bar in most plans.


Touches of elegance extend throughout the homes, from Baldwin® SoHo® front door hardware and brushed nickel oval interior door knobs to Kohler® plumbing fixtures and ceramic-tile counters in all secondary baths.


Kitchens are showcases of the finest luxury appointments. Slab granite countertops, including full backsplash, are offered in a choice of five colors and materials. They are elegantly complemented by wood-stain raised-panel cabinets; under-cabinet lighting; and a complete collection of KitchenAid® stainless steel appliances, including 42” built-in refrigerator, 48” commercial-style six-burner gas range with griddle and self-cleaning double ovens, microwave oven with turntable and Energy Star Tall Tub multi-cycle dishwasher.


Master suite baths feature such impressive extras as Kohler® soaking and jetted tubs with in-line heaters, hand-set ceramic-tile tub surround and shower walls, Caesarstone® countertops and 8” x 8” ceramic-tile flooring.


Both The Bungalows and The Villas offer a variety of customizing opportunities, including upgraded cabinet stain finishes and door styles, upgraded granite and tile selections and such state-of-the-art technology as home theater, intercom, security alarm and central vacuum systems. At The Villas, optional Wolf® appliances are joined by such additional available upgrades as Sub-Zero® refrigerator/freezers and Bertazzoni® ranges.


Pacific Shores even has its own vacation destination: a 60-foot-long resort-style heated pool that offers residents the opportunity for swimming, sunbathing and exercising in a private setting as well as at the nearby beach.


Vacation activities begin on three beaches that stretch for 8.5 seamless miles along the Huntington Beach coastline. Closest to Pacific Shores, a perfect spot for traditional family outings is Huntington State Beach, which is popular with swimmers, bodysurfers and body boarders. In the heart of town, Huntington City Beach, anchored by the historic Huntington Beach Pier, is the favorite of surfers and is also the site of such international sports competitions as the US Open of Surfing. Farther north, At Bolsa Chica State Beach offers mellow waves that are ideal for learning to surf or surf fishing.


On the lengthy list of recreational opportunities in Huntington Beach, surfing, swimming and sunbathing are joined by skateboarding, biking, boating, fishing, golf, tennis and beach volleyball. And after an active day, residents and vacationers alike enjoy the local entertainment scene in downtown Huntington Beach, where choices range from casual and sophisticated dining to nightlife and theater.


As a value added benefit for buyers, the community of Pacific Shores has no Mello-Roos tax assessments, and as an added convenience, Pacific Shores is offering full broker cooperation.


Residents of Pacific Shores will also enjoy convenient access to a number of local amenities. An inviting two-acre public park is right next door, and the world-renowned Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, Huntington Central Park and Library and Huntington Beach's excellent public schools are all nearby.


The community is also close to everything Orange County has to offer, including higher education at the University of California at Irvine, Goldenwest College and Orange Coast College; world-class shopping at South Coast Plaza and Fashion Island; major league sports at Angel Stadium and the Honda Center; and a full calendar of cultural presentations at Orange County’s Segerstrom Center for the Arts.
