ALISO VIEJO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 14, 2012) - Join the celebration this Saturday, June 16, for the much-anticipated grand opening of Veranda at Glenwood in Aliso Viejo, Shea Homes' collection of elegant single-family residences that promise to make staying at home feel like getting away. Highlighting the event will be food and fun for everyone and the debut of beautifully decorated models that showcase the principles of holistic living, which combines all of the elements of the perfect residential environment, inside and out.

Veranda will reward residents with a resort-inspired lifestyle, and the grand opening will showcase many facets of that lifestyle, including special tastings from executive chefs of Aliso Viejo Country Club, and yoga demonstrations and a relaxing shoulder massage courtesy of Renaissance ClubSport. In addition, everyone who attends will also have the chance to enter a drawing to win a foursome of golf at the Aliso Viejo Country Club Golf Course, free room rental at the Aliso Viejo Country Club and a one-month family fitness pass and one-night weekend stay at the Renaissance ClubSport.

In Veranda's impressive residences, everyday household activities will unfold in the comfort of free-flowing great rooms, and guest suites will welcome visiting friends and relatives. Spacious lofts will accommodate everything from a quiet hideaway to a media space to a home office. For outdoor enjoyment and entertaining, private courtyards will be a natural extension of the spacious interiors.

"Veranda brings everything into harmony," stated Janet Benavidez, vice president, sales and marketing, for Shea Homes Southern California. "It begins with you, setting the stage, planning for the future and gathering all the parts of your perfect home. Plus it's the last golf course community in Aliso Viejo, so don't miss out. Come to the grand opening celebration, where you'll discover the many choices that await you at Veranda."

The model tour will spotlight three distinctive single-family floor plans spanning approximately 3,167 to 3,758 square feet, including three to five bedrooms and four to four and one-half baths, with prices starting in the $800,000s. In each home, every room is a solution, and every detail adds to the whole. Wide-open designs expand the opportunities for shared moments, family time and casual entertaining. State-of-the-art kitchens achieve the perfect balance of style and convenience. Master baths evoke a sense of serene opulence. Everything about Veranda is designed to surpass buyers' expectations.

Veranda's value will be enhanced by the riches of Glenwood and its centerpiece, a Jack Nicklaus-designed championship golf course. There's a genuine sense of abundance at Glenwood, and for good reason. From parks and pools to sports fields and golf, the world expands exponentially for residents, who are free to balance work and play, life and growth, family and friends in the superb Orange County address that has set the standard for master-planned excellence.
