SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 4, 2014) - When Descanso at Del Sur opens this Saturday, June 7 at 10 a.m., homebuyers will get their first look at three model homes by Brookfield Residential that invite relaxation and family comfort.

With expansive living spaces and plans ranging from 3,423 to 3,940 square feet, the homes include great rooms, prep kitchens with oversized islands, and signature Del Sur outdoor rooms. Large decks can be added on some home sites, most of which have views of the surrounding hillsides and canyons.

"Descanso is a retreat in the midst of San Diego," said Rocky Tracy, VP of Sales for Brookfield Residential Southern California. "A singular circular street that forms its own private cul-de-sac gives this neighborhood a sense of community within the wonderful place that is Del Sur."

Only 39 homes comprise the neighborhood, with five being released to buyers in the first phase. Prices are anticipated from the low $1 millions.

With four to six bedrooms with en-suite baths, including first floor bedrooms, and 4.5 to 6.5 baths, the homes can accommodate large and multi-generational families or provide space for visiting relatives. Families can choose to utilize the lofts in some residences as retreats or bedrooms, or they can opt for a plan that features a crafting space or home office.

"People always tell us there's never enough space in the garage," Tracy noted. "In this case, we've made sure the garages include expanded storage and, in some plans, room for up to three cars -- or more toys."

One plan includes separate one- and two-car garages.

An added attraction at Del Sur is its location in the renowned Poway Unified School District, with Del Sur Elementary School, Del Norte High School and Oak Valley Middle School in close proximity to homes at Descanso. The district's newest school, Design39Campus, opens this fall at Del Sur.

Residents at Descanso will also have access to Del Sur's 18 miles of connected trails and community parks, such as Wade Park, with a splash pad and grotto. Canine critters can break out too at the dog areas at Paseo Park. In all, Del Sur has eight parks that invite neighbors to gather for bocce ball, lap swimming, barbecues and more.

Stop by Descanso for the grand opening this weekend at 15434 Tanner Ridge Circle,
San Diego, CA 92127.
