Street view of Brookland by SheaHomes

Brookland by Shea Homes in Baker Ranch offers more than a modern new townhome lifestyle. The fact that there are no Mello Roos taxes gives added value to their handsome architecture and spacious, open-plan designs. With historically low interest rates now available, the prospect of owning a brand new home has never been brighter. Yet Brookland also includes resort-style living at Baker Ranch, and the convenience of a Lake Forest address. When smart buyers add all these advantages together with pricing from the high $400,000s, Brookland becomes a brilliant choice.


“Brookland buyers are discovering a time and place where they can achieve brand new home ownership, plus the benefits and tax advantages that come with it,” said Janet Benavidez, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Shea Homes. “They realize the automatic savings of no Mello Roos taxes is rare and valuable, and taking advantage of exceptionally low mortgage interest is a must that can only happen right now.”


Homebuyers will enjoy having four exciting floorplans from which to choose, ranging from approximately 1,299 to 1,801 square feet with two to three bedrooms, two to three baths and attached two-car garages.  Designs convey a sense of openness that flows from the great room and large patio or courtyard to an entertainment-friendly kitchen. Brookland kitchens offer white contemporary flat panel thermofoil cabinetry, granite countertops with 6” backsplash, convenient kitchen island and breakfast bar per plan, and quality Whirlpool® stainless steel built-in appliances.


Master suites include large walk-in closets, and elegant bathrooms with dual sinks and spacious showers. Each plan has its own unique personality. The Plan 2 offers the addition of a downstairs bedroom or optional office. Two generous-sized upstairs secondary bedrooms in the Plan 3 are located on the opposite end of the floor from the elegant master suite.  The largest home at Brookland offers three bedrooms plus a downstairs office.


Owning at Brookland also delivers the benefits of Baker Ranch’s resort-style recreation center, just a five-minute walk from home.  The Grove features a 6,500 sq. ft. clubhouse where a chef-ready kitchen with seating, indoor and outdoor social spaces, and a big party room welcome all kinds of gatherings. A lagoon-style pool, spas, large, quiet pool, and expansive veranda with barbecues and seating are at the heart of a rich lifestyle. A sprawling community park offers sports fields, basketball courts and playgrounds with ample parking, benches and restrooms. Smaller parks provide picnic tables, sand volleyball and children’s play areas to enjoy.


Situated in the small town charm of Lake Forest, enjoy the relationship between nature and living well for an active life filled with adventure.  Set amidst peaceful rolling hills with a backdrop of majestic mountain vistas, Baker Ranch is the perfect setting to hike, bike and explore miles of open space.
