HUNTINGTON BEACH, CAAnd the winner is….YOU! The Trails at Brightwater in Huntington Beach, which was named Detached Community of the Year at The Nationals, is now selling its four  model homes, and that means that four fortunate home buyers will have the distinction of saying that they live in an award-winning model home in a community that was judged the very best in the entire country.


These impressive homes abound with enhancements: highly upgraded flooring; designer countertops; decorator-selected window coverings, including plantation shutters in select plans; professional front- and rear-yard landscaping with water features in most homes; numerous built-ins; and valuable builder upgrades.


The decorated models are priced from $875,000, and a limited number of remaining production homes start at $775,000.


“Don’t miss this one-time opportunity to live in a gorgeous model home within walking distance to the beach,” stated Doug Woodyard, vice president of sales and marketing for Hearthside Homes, Brightwater's developer. “Visit The Trails at Brightwater today, tour the models, and imagine calling one your own.”


The Trails features stylish two-story residences ranging from approximately 1,710 to 1,953 square feet, including three to four bedrooms and two and one-half baths plus a two-car garage. The largest plan takes on the added dimension of an optional secluded third-floor loft, and gourmet island kitchens and private courtyards enhance most plans. 


As one of four distinctive residential collections at Brightwater, The Trails is joined by The Sands, The Cliffs and The Breakers, each of which brings a new dimension of style and luxury to coastal living.


The Sands is celebrating the premier of a new floor plan that features a downstairs bedroom and bath or a large private, enclosed front yard that enhances the opportunity to enjoy outdoor living along the Southern California coast. This imaginatively designed home is one of a trio of charming two-story floor plans at The Sands, where living areas measure approximately 1,927 to 2,463 square feet, including three to four bedrooms and two and one-half to three and one-half baths plus a two-car garage, and prices start in the low $800,000s. Offering exceptional versatility, the homes boast a variety of room options, which vary by plan. Among them are a quiet den, a master-suite retreat and a bunkroom that’s ideal for two youngsters to share.


The Cliffs presents elegant two-story residences that encompass four to six bedrooms and three to five baths within approximately 2,724 to 3,590 square feet. Garages feature either a three-car or two-car expanded configuration. Most plans include a bonus room and a private courtyard, and two plans feature a handy prep kitchen in addition to a conventional kitchen. Select locations are also enhanced by spectacular views of the Bolsa Chica wetlands and the Pacific Ocean. Prices at The Cliffs start in the low $1 millions.


The Breakers showcases 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 the family room in each home, private courtyards invite outdoor living, and bonus rooms or teen rooms expand the dimensions of most plans. Prices begin at $1,380,000.


For residents of Brightwater, their zip code may be 92649, but their return address is Surf City USA. Brightwater's closest neighbor, Bolsa Chica State Beach, is one of three beaches that stretch for 8.5 seamless miles along the Huntington Beach coastline. For traditional family outings, there's also Huntington State Beach, on the city's southern end, 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.


With such diverse sports as surfing, skateboarding, biking, boating, fishing, golf, tennis and beach volleyball, there's never a shortage of recreational opportunities in Huntington Beach, and even after the sun goes down, the local entertainment scene includes casual as well as sophisticated dining, nightlife and theater. In addition, the International Surfing Museum houses some of the sport's most treasured artifacts, the Huntington Beach Art Center features works by artists of national and international prominence, and the Surfers' Hall of Fame is anchored by a bronze stature of Duke Kahanamoku, the "Father of Surfing," on the corner of Main Street and Pacific Coast Highway.


Along with all those permanent attractions, there's always something special happening in Huntington Beach, where events run the gamut from world-class athletic competitions to free summer concerts at Pier Plaza, the annual Surf Film Festival, weekly Farmers' Markets, swap meets at Golden West College and monthly tours of the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, which is also within walking distance of Brightwater. One of the highlights of every summer is the annual Independence Day Parade, which is considered the largest event of its kind west of the Mississippi.


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 at Brightwater 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.
