Imagine waking every morning and looking out your window on scenic rolling hills with natural rock outcroppings. Those views are available for prices starting in the low $300,000s at TRI Pointe Homes' Castlerock in Riverside, a limited edition of only 27 homes in a secluded hillside setting.


“The views and the surroundings make Castlerock an incredible value,” stated TRI Pointe Homes principal Douglas Bauer, “and that value is heightened by an array of exceptional appointments and extra-large backyards for summertime fun.”


The spacious backyards are made possible by homesites averaging 14,000 square feet. “There's plenty of room for a patio, pool, garden and more,” Bauer noted. “The yards set the scene for Southern California living at its best, and they have room for big-kids' toys.”

The homes of Castlerock range from approximately 2,336 to 2,661 square feet and offer a choice of two innovative two-story floor plans, both of which are distinguished by expansive great rooms for family gatherings and fun-filled entertaining, gourmet island kitchens that achieve the perfect balance of style and convenience, and lofty ceilings that enhance the feeling of spaciousness.


Residence 1 features the flexibility of a den that may also be selected as a formal dining room or an optional downstairs bedroom as well as the option of an upstairs loft. Residence 2, which includes a convenient downstairs bedroom that's perfect for overnight guests, may be expanded with the addition of an optional upstairs bonus room.


For the ultimate in personal comfort, grand master suites are highlighted by oval tubs, separate showers, ceramic-tile pullman countertops and immense walk-in closets. Residence 2's master suite is enhanced by his-and-hers walk-in closets. In addition, secondary bedrooms are comfortably spacious, and compartmentalized secondary baths easily accommodate today’s families.


Kitchen conveniences are led by white Thermofoil cabinets with concealed hinges and easy-clean melamine interiors, under-cabinet fluorescent lighting, ceramic-tile countertops, handy optional recycle bins and a complete collection of Whirlpool® appliances, including a gas range with oven, microwave oven/vent hood combination and multi-cycle Energy Star® dishwasher.


Stylish touches include optional gas fireplaces with log sets, raised-panel interior doors, rounded wall corners, and recessed lighting with dimmer switches in select locations. And to accommodate today's technology, structured wiring with RG6 and CAT5e cables facilitates high-speed computer connections as well as cable TV and telephone.


The striking appearance of the homes begins with richly detailed Spanish or Cottage-style architecture. Exterior enhancements also include complete front-yard landscaping, designer-selected exterior colors, inviting front porches on select plans, sectional steel roll-up garage doors, fire-resistant concrete tile roofs, rain gutters and illuminated address numbers.


Buyers who act quickly can take advantage of the new $10,000 California tax credit before it's gone, and TRI Pointe Homes is offering a $1,500 reward to anyone, excluding brokers, who refers a friend or family member who purchases a Castlerock home. See a sales representative for complete details and restrictions.


Built on the TRI-e3 philosophy – Earth-Friendly. Energy Efficient. Evolved – Castlerock incorporates an array of environmentally conscious and energy-saving features, from low-E dual-pane windows, radiant barrier roof sheeting and low-VOC interior paint to sensors in bathrooms to turn off incandescent lights when not in use.


Castlerock residents will enjoy convenient access to the 91 and 15 freeways, which make it easy to commute to employment centers and recreation destinations throughout the Inland Empire and Orange County. They will also appreciate the money-saving advantages of a community that has no Mello-Roos taxes.
