Influenced by ocean breezes and inspired by a country club setting, Shea Homes' Glenwood and Vantis in Aliso Viejo are cooler than any other new-home community in Orange County, and “cool” goes far beyond the climate. It also means a wide variety of home designs, room options, great detail work, quality finishing touches and the chance to win a $600 gas gift card* just by registering at any Glenwood or Vantis neighborhood.


“Glenwood and Vantis have the cool factor you'd expect from a family-owned company that has built in the area for decades and is focused on bringing out the best for families in South Orange County.” stated Janet Benavidez, vice president of sales and marketing for Shea Homes Southern California. “Their location is without equal, and you can choose from six great neighborhoods that range from affordably priced townhomes to magnificent luxury residences.”


Benavidez also urged home buyers to act quickly to take advantage of the new $10,000 California tax credit**, which took effect May 1st. “Experts are predicting that home buyers will burn through the entire $100 million that has been allocated for this credit in just a few months,” she said. “If you wait, you risk missing out on this huge savings.”


Glenwood's neighborhoods meet the needs and budgets of a broad spectrum of buyers. Low maintenance meets golf course living at Harbor Station***, where stylish townhomes make a Glenwood address remarkably attainable. The single-family detached designs of Pasadera offer added spaciousness and elegance. The executive-style residences of Birch River are extraordinary in every detail, and the luxury homes of Vista Vallarta are enhanced by the community's incomparable setting alongside the fairways and greens of the Jack Nicklaus-designed 18-hole championship course at Aliso Viejo Country Club.


Harbor Station's imaginatively designed townhomes range from approximately 1,488 to 1,574 square feet, with up to three bedrooms, 2.5 to 3.5 bathrooms and attached two-car garages. Select plans are enhanced by private decks and gourmet kitchens with convenient chef's islands. Prices start in the mid $400,000s.


Pasadera presents comfortably spacious two-story homes that range in size from approximately 2,224 to 3,163 square feet, including up to four bedrooms, three bathrooms and attached two-car garages. Expansive fireplace-warmed great rooms join with extra-roomy island kitchens to create the inviting heart of each residence. Pasadera's newly introduced Plan 4 features a side courtyard and an extra-spacious backyard – the largest of all Pasadera plans. Graced with Cottage, Monterey, Spanish and Italianate architecture, the homes are priced from the mid $600,000s.


Birch River's executive-style single-family homes offer an incomparable combination of style and spaciousness. Living areas span approximately 3,096 to 3,567 square feet with up to five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms plus attached three-bay tandem garages. The homes currently available at Birch River  offer large, pool-sized homesites. Prices start in the mid $800,000s.


Vista Vallarta is the pinnacle of luxury in Glenwood. Four impressive two-story floor plans are distinguished by grand-scale living areas spanning approximately 3,474 to 3,892 square feet, including three to six bedrooms and 3 to 4.5 baths plus three-bay garages. Each home offers a variety of flexible room options, and in the largest design, an inviting outdoor room sets the scene for Southern California-style entertaining at its best. Varying plans take on the added dimension of an upstairs bonus room, teen room or loft, while select homes feature a fireplace-warmed morning room, a secluded library or study or a traditional parlor. In addition, available solar panel packages offer increased energy efficiency and resource conservation. Prices start in the mid $900,000s.


Vantis offers something for everyone, from singles to couples to families, with two stylish townhome collections, Latitudes North and Latitudes South. Together, they offer a combined total of 10 imaginatively designed floor plans.

Inspired by Boston’s Beacon Hill and San Francisco’s Pacific Heights, Latitudes North's impressive three-level townhomes feature open interiors ranging from approximately 1,401 to 1,863 square feet, with two to three bedrooms and up to two and one-half bathrooms. Front patios or deck spaces extend living areas outdoors, and direct-access two-car garages provide added convenience. Prices start in the low $400,000s

Latitudes South's inviting courtyard designs make a Vantis address exceptionally attainable with prices starting in the low $400,000s. Two- to three-level floor plans measure approximately 1,188 to 1,627 square feet, including two to three bedrooms and up to two and one-half bathrooms, plus a direct-access two-car garage. Many of the homes are enhanced by city light and ridgeline views.


As an added benefit for Vantis homeowners, The Club at Vantis is an emporium of lifestyle amenities, beginning with a fitness center that features state-of-the-art exercise machines and aerobic equipment with personal TV monitors. There's also a resort-style pool surrounded by private cabanas, a lavish lounge, a conference room with kitchen, an entertainment room with plasma TV and fireplace, a game room with billiards, a tot lot, outdoor fireplaces and barbecues with ample seating and Wi-Fi connectivity inside and out.


In addition to Aliso Viejo Country Club, which features a new, 38,000-square-foot Member’s Clubhouse and full-service lounge and restaurant, Glenwood's resort lifestyle is enhanced by more than $20 million of community amenities, including 6.4 acres of public parks, two tot lots and trails with fitness stations.
