I was fortunate enough to attend press day for new homes being built in the West Hills area of Valencia by DR Horton. Three new neighborhoods – Highgate, Belmont & Monument – feature 3 to 6 bedroom homes that are well-thought out and tastefully done, each with unique design touches. I confess to loving the big, open kitchens and luxurious bathrooms the most. Also intriguing are the paseos or paths that run for miles and connect all the neighborhoods with rec centers, shops and schools. This would be the place to go for anyone into biking.
The Grand Opening is April 20th and you’re invited, not only to see the homes, but join in an Al Fresco Street Fair packed with fun family activities from 10 – 4.
A few of our local MomsLA bloggers will be on hand along with live music and giveaways to showcase their talents with cooking, beauty and entertaining.
