TRI Pointe Homes Celebrates Local History With Machado House Restoration at Parasol in Fremont

FREMONT, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 28, 2016) - A charming little piece of the past -- the historic Machado House -- is now set to shine among the townhomes in the beautiful neighborhood of Parasol in Fremont. The historic home, built circa 1905, was restored by renowned local homebuilder TRI Pointe Homes (NYSE: TPH) and serves as a stately reminder of the region's rich history.

"The Machado House has a wonderful story that dates back to early 1900's when it was part of a small string of properties that was recognized as part of a farmstead at the turn of the century," said Susan Cleary, Marketing Manager for TRI Pointe Homes. "So, it is with great pride that TRI Pointe Homes worked to preserve the original structure and fold it in with the new community of Parasol at Fremont."

The Machado House's Queen Anne-style cottage design was common among the area's early immigrant settlers. Efforts were made to preserve the original design of the property and keep to its historical character by planting low-profile landscaping and added new fencing around the perimeter of the Machado property to maintain the integrity of the original single-family dwelling.

"Not only is this a great opportunity to revisit the old; it's also a great time to introduce the new things happening at TRI Pointe Homes," Cleary said. "Parasol in Fremont has been expertly crafted to meet the needs of 21st century families."

Parasol's spacious interiors are featured in these three story homes range from 1,218 to 2,241 square feet with up to four bedrooms and 3.5 baths. Sizable ceramic tiles grace entryways, kitchen area and all baths, along with coffered ceilings in some plans are among the tasteful appointments to make Parasol one of TRI Pointe Homes' most exciting new townhome communities.

Refreshingly modern kitchens add flair to excite culinary talents, featuring a center island, gorgeous granite countertops, crown molding, recycle bin and Euro styled recessed Beech Wood cabinetry with concealed hinges. A quality GE® built-in stainless steel appliance package offers a 30" electric oven, 36" gas cooktop and hood, plus a microwave oven with a trim kit included. 

For privacy and relaxation, elegant master suites provide generous walk-in closets, dual sinks and showers with semi-frameless clear glass enclosures. Beautiful Euro style Beech Wood recessed cabinetry with concealed hinges adds a contemporary look with a choice of a couple of stains. The two largest plans offer a separate soaking tub and shower.
