HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – Future Newport, Rhode Island summer home residents Bill and Denise Rollins have found their perfect winter home at Pacific Shores, Christopher Homes’ brand-new gated community just three blocks from the beach in Huntington Beach.


“We shopped for over two years from LA to San Diego,” Bill stated, “and I can tell you that you will be hard pressed to find a better quality home this close to the shore for a comparable price anywhere in Southern California.”


Bill explained further, “The base price gives you so much more than other developments…granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and more. The quality and the features are like those of a custom home; this is as close to custom as you can get.”


Of course, the crowning touch for the Rollinses was the beach lifestyle. “Now we can live close to the beach year-round,” Denise said. And there’s an added bonus for their children. “We wanted a home that they could use as a vacation home,” Bill explained, and their son, who is a U.S. Navy pilot, loves coming there for R&R.  “Pacific Shores really feels like a vacation destination,” Bill stated, “and as a gated community, it gives us the peace of mind of a lock-and-leave situation. We could not ask for more.”


The Rollinses have also been impressed by the service they have received from Christopher Homes. “It’s been first-rate,” Bill said. “Whenever we have had a question, they have responded quickly to our needs.”


The Rollinses purchased a Plan Two-X at The Bungalows, which is one of two Pacific Shores residential collections. Their home encompasses four bedrooms plus a loft, and both Bill and Denise appreciate the functionality of the design – main living areas on the first floor, bedrooms on the second floor, and bonus spaces, including the loft and an extra bathroom, on the third floor.


The full range of choices at The Bungalows includes five spacious two- and three-story townhome plans ranging from approximately 1,481 to 2,606 square feet, including two, three or four bedrooms and up to 4.5 baths at prices starting in the mid $500,000s and range up to the high $700,000s with no Mello-Roos taxes. Residences Two and Three offer both two- and three-story designs. The two-story homes are value-priced from the low $700,000s. Each plan is uniquely designed for the needs of today’s families and single households. They are enhanced by spacious gourmet kitchens and a variety of flex spaces, including a super loft spanning more than 500 square feet, a private master retreat or a multipurpose room. Creating a custom-like community ambiance, architecture includes a mix of Spanish, Andalusian, Plantation and Coastal styles.


Every Bungalows residence is a showcase of fine appointments. Gourmet island kitchens radiate with the contemporary look of 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 baths maximize personal comfort with ceramic tile countertops and shower walls, clear-glass frameless shower enclosures and large walk-in closets. Architectural flair extends throughout the homes with 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 is joined at Pacific Shores by The Villas, where architectural elegance, luxury and spaciousness soar to stunning heights. Recently honored as Neighborhood of the Year at the homebuilding industry’s prestigious SoCal Awards, The Villas presents a trio of imaginatively designed three-story floor plans ranging from 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 high $900,000s.


Leaving no doubt that The Villas make luxury an everyday experience, the homes feature 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 that may be selected as an optional loft with wet bar in most plans as well as an optional elevator.


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 achieve the perfect balance of style and convenience with slab granite countertops, including full backsplash, in a choice of five colors; 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 baths feature such impressive extras as Kohler® 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 Villas and The Bungalows 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, available appliance upgrades range from Sub-Zero® refrigerator/freezers to Wolf® and Bertazzoni® ranges.


Even though the beach is within walking distance, a refreshing swim is even closer for Pacific Shores residents at the community’s own resort-style 60-foot-long heated swimming pool, which is enhanced by an ample furnished relaxation deck, outdoor shower and restrooms.


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


The prospect of living in a gated private community that’s just three blocks from the beach is just one of the attractions that are boosting Pacific Shores' appeal. The community is also being enhanced with an inviting two-acre public park and a prime location that is just minutes from Huntington Beach's vibrant downtown, which abounds with shops, restaurants and night life. Also nearby are the world-renowned Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, Huntington Central Park and Library and Huntington Beach's excellent public schools.


Pacific Shores residents will also enjoy easy access to everything Orange County has to offer, including higher education at the University of California at Irvine, Goldenwest College, 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.
