  These are the sites below Varenna.  I thought they were the ones above.
The ones above are going to be KB

Do you know how large?  Did you find out from KB?

Anyone have a price guess?

P1: $1,100,000
P2: $1,130,000
P3: $1,200,000
P4: $1,275,000
P4X: $1,300,000



Considering Varenna starts near $1.15 million for approx. 2,500 sqft.  Below is my guess:

P1: $1,285,000
P2: $1,325,000
P3: $1,350,000
P4: $1,445,000
P4X: $1,478,000

Above is lower range of the estimate.  I will be surprised if they get that much of a discount to Calistoga at EW.  Could be slightly lower to Calistoga for a Phase 1-2 release.
I bet they will start higher then you propose. I don't think they should, but they will.  I didn't think Calistoga was selling that great and hasn't Varenna largely been a disaster?

From their preliminary price sheet:
Plan 1:  From the high $1.2M
Plan 2:  From the high $1.2M
Plan 3:  From the high $1.2M
Plan 4:  From the mid $1.3M
Plan 4X: From the mid $1.3M

Stopped the Padova sales office to pick up the brochure.  Plans look nice and price is within our budget but still have concerns.  How do you feel about 133 toll road backing up to the Pardova homes?  Would that be a major deterrent for most buyers now and later for resale value?

It seems like there's not much interest in Padova.  I understand it's backing the toll road, so people may be concerned with the noise/dust/pollution.  Just curious if there's any other reason for the lack of interest?  The price seems to be very reasonable.  Their largest 4X plan (3474 sqft) is priced at $1,370,000 without lot premium ($1,430,000 and $1,410,000 with lot premiums for the 3 released 4X lots), which is less than $400/sqft.  Is Padova such a bad product?  I'm asking because we are thinking about making a purchase, but wondering if we missed any key negative factor(s) that we should be considering.

I stopped by this weekend.  I was interested in the house, after seeing the site,  I changed my mind.  The location is very close to the toll road.

Probably due to lack of actual model homes to tour.  not many people would want to pluck down that kind of $$ without having to walk the actual models.

We are also on the list for Padova but are waiting for a later phase release. Our biggest concern was noise from the toll road, so we are not considering the first row of homes on Royal Pine that back directly to the toll road. These homes are about the same distance to the toll road as the outermost homes at Vicenza and Varenna, and when we drove through these communities it was clear that they were absorbing most of the noise from passing cars. We like the price point and cul de sacs and the lots are large for Irvine new construction.

Stopped by after the grand opening free stuff event. More relaxed - noticed about 75% of those visiting were Caucasians with the balance Asian - the opposite of what I normally find.

Maybe it was because of the giant American flag in front of the sales office.

Plan 4 was nice.  Shea Homes' floorplans are a lot more functional than TayMo's floorplans.  They aren't sure if they will get the land above the cul-de-sacs (Derby and Rockinghorse street) so right now, it is only 36 homes in 8 phases.  I actually think the map is wrong.  Isn't Hideaway park the one next to the Varenna model homes, not above lot 121 and 122?

On the information sheet, it says that the base property tax is less than 1%.  I thought Irvine property tax were always 1% then plus your melloroos?
