alcala-1Alcala by William Lyon Homes
-Approximately 2,463 – 2,613 square feet
-Up to 5 bedrooms
-3 bathrooms
-Prices starting at the high $600,000's

Named after one of San Diego's oldest and best-known landmarks, San Diego Basilica de Alcala was the first of 21 missions that dots Southern California's landscape. With sweeping views of the area's rolling hills, sparkling bay and lush river valley, the mission offered a respite to wearied travelers and a place of reflection for the padres who called its sacred walls home.

In honor of this pillar of San Diego history, William Lyon Homes has given the name "Alcala" to the collection of homes that will be built in the master-planned village of Del Sur. Like the San Diego Basilica de Alcala hundreds of years ago, these homes will become your own personal sanctuary.

Located in San Diego's undulating countryside, just minutes from the Pacific coastline, Alcala at Del Sur will offer three impressive floor plans with up to 2,593 square feet of living space. Reminiscent of early San Diego, Alcala will feature Spanish Colonial Revival, Monterey and Mediterranean architectural styling. These spacious, single-family homes will include appealing exterior architectural details such as porte cocheres, private courtyards, covered patios and decks off the master bedroom. Some of the homes' welcoming interior features incorporate great rooms and parlors, super family rooms, and formal dining rooms.

The first of Alcala's three homes will include three to four bedrooms with two and one-half baths and a two-car attached garage. The neighborhood's Residence Two will feature more than 2,400 square-feet, including spaces for both family gatherings as well as private retreats that are all your own. Alcala's final residence will consist of three to five bedrooms and two and one-half to three baths. The plan's super family room and formal dining room offer wonderful places to entertain.

With its beginnings also rooted in Southern California, William Lyon Homes has constructed more than 125,000 well-designed new homes in its 50-year history. Dedicated to building quality homes and providing superior service to its buyers, the company has maintained its reputation as one of the region's largest and most respected homebuilders.

[expand title="Avaron | "]avaron-1Avaron by Standard Pacific Homes

-Approximately 3,959 – 4,430 square feet
-4-5 bedrooms
-4-4.5 baths
-3-car garage
-Priced from the low $1,000,000s


As the most exclusive of Standard Pacific's four new neighborhoods at Del Sur, Avaron defines the ultimate in sophisticated, luxurious living. Spacious homes, breathtaking architecture, elegant details and special amenities are all hallmarks of this warm and inviting neighborhood.

Avaron features Tuscan architecture as its signature, complemented by homes in the Monterey and Provence styles. This harmony of architecture creates a refined presence characteristic of San Diego's finest neighborhoods. Avaron residents will experience an exciting new living environment combined with open space, trails and natural beauty as well as privileges at the adjoining Crosby Sports Club.

Avaron is a proposed collection of 59 two-story, single-family luxury homes that will range in size from 3,953 to 4,442 square feet. Three individual plans will feature 4 or 5 bedrooms plus bonus room, retreat or library, 4 or 4 ½ baths, and 3-car split or tandem garages. Generously proportioned, the residences at Avaron will offer soothing sanctuary for every member of the family.

The rough stone and smooth, contrasting stucco of Avaron's primary Tuscan architectural style is found in both new and older San Diego neighborhoods including Mission Hills, La Jolla and Rancho Santa Fe. Courtyards, arched entryways and massive doors define the unique form of the Tuscan country villa. Large fireplaces, heavy wooden beams and formal entryways express the classic Tuscan style.

Avaron's Monterey architecture features the style's symmetrical form, often with different exterior wall materials for the first and second stories. Second-story cantilevered wood balconies covered by the principal roof are also a defining feature of Monterey homes. As its name implies, the style was originated by craftsmen in Monterey in the 1830s, and quickly gained in popularity with California's fast-growing population.

Avaron is also the only Del Sur community that will feature residences with the distinctive architecture of Provence, with its rustic use of stone and distinctive detailing that evokes images of a sunlit home in the French countryside.

Each residence at Avaron is planned with grand architectural styling. Morning rooms, large family rooms and spacious kitchens with island areas are artfully arranged to create a whole-house appeal. One plan features a loggia and covered deck. These are homes created with enjoyment and entertainment in mind.[/expand]

[expand title="Bridgewalk | "]bridgewalk1Bridgewalk by Standard Pacific Homes
-Approximately 1,706 – 1,969 square feet
-3-4 bedrooms
-2.5-3 baths
-2-car garage
-Priced from the Mid $500,000's

Young couples, new families and singles all will delight in the discovery of Bridgewalk, one of four new Standard Pacific communities at Del Sur.

Bridgewalk at Del Sur is anticipated to be a collection of 69 finely detailed residences. The neighborhood was created around a primary architectural theme inspired by San Diego's rich traditions of Spanish Colonial architecture. The style first became popular in the area following the 1915 Panama-California International Exposition, which was held in Balboa Park. As the name implies, Bridgewalk is only a short stroll across a bridge from adjoining Del Sur neighborhoods and amenities.

Romantic and timeless, the Spanish Colonial Revival style at Bridgewalk blends architectural elements from early California Missions, Spanish-Mexican adobes and more refined Mediterranean traditions. A classic palette of off-white, light warm grays, tans, ochres, burnt oranges and beiges will lend a colorful yet refined street appeal to the homes.

For a pleasing variety and texture, homes designed in the elegant Italian Revival and classic California Monterey architectural styles also grace the Bridgewalk community. The neighborhood's three architectural themes will blend together to create a rich tapestry of form, color and detail.

The Bridgewalk neighborhood is planned to offer three handsome, two-story single-family plans from 1,706 to 1,969 square feet. Families will find comfort and lots of room to grow in homes that include 3 to 4 bedrooms, and 2 1/2 to 3 baths. Simplicity, craftsmanship, attention to detail, and thoughtful use of outdoor space are hallmarks of the homes at Bridgewalk. Many of the unique structural forms are accented with tower elements. Lower-pitched hip or gable roofs of one- or two-piece barrel tile add harmony. Two floor plans feature interior terraced courtyards that take full advantage of San Diego's near-perfect Mediterranean climate and year-round outdoor lifestyle. A third residence features a front courtyard that's perfect for relaxing or outdoor entertaining.

Residences at Bridgewalk will preserve a sense of tradition and individuality through the extensive use of rich, decorative Spanish Colonial elements such as colorful tiles, ornamental ironwork, decorative corbels, brackets and stonework. Lighter-colored thick stucco walls with asymmetrical placed windows and doors create a sense of intimacy and an inviting presence.

Bridgewalk floor plans flow effortlessly for convenient living. Each kitchen will feature an island that becomes the ideal centerpiece for festive gatherings of family and friends. Walk-in closets and a separate tub and shower will transform every luxurious master suite into a serene retreat. Even small details such as a sink in the laundry room and a generous shop area in the attached, two-car garage will make each Bridgewalk home a place to truly enjoy living.[/expand]

Cabrillo at Del Sur borrows its name and heritage from San Diego's historic landmark bridge located in Balboa Park. Families especially will find that Cabrillo offers them all the amenities, features and quality San Diego lifestyle they seek.

Italian Revival is the principal architectural theme of the residences at Cabrillo. The elegant and formal style is found in many stately early 20th century homes of San Diego's Mission Hills and Banker Hill neighborhoods. Classic secondary styles of California Monterey and Spanish Colonial homes are artfully intermingled to create a pleasing balance and variety to the streetscape.

There's plenty of room for families to grow and simply enjoy life in one of Cabrillo's three, two-story single-family models, planned to range in size from 2,420 to 3,018 square feet. Floorplans include 3 to 4 bedrooms, and 2 1/2 to 3 baths, plus attached, two-car garages with 10-foot storage spaces. Kitchens with granite countertops, generous pantries and a desk will become the center of busy family life. Generously proportioned family rooms feature fireplaces, and are thoughtfully arranged with kitchens and nooks. Every luxurious master suite will include a large walk-in closet and a bath with separate tub and shower. Laundry room sinks and tankless water heaters are the kind of features that will make the homes at Cabrillo extraordinarily livable.[/expand]

[expand title="Cassero | "]cassero1Cassero by Standard Pacific Homes

Cassero at Del Sur is the perfect place to experience sophisticated living combined with the historic architectural traditions of San Diego's most desirable communities. Families, couples and even active adults will find Cassero offers the ultimate in easy maintenance, quality lifestyle.

As with the adjacent neighborhood of Cabrillo, Italian Revival is the primary architectural theme at Cassero. Classic secondary themes of California Monterey, Spanish Colonial and unique Prairie architecture blend to create the kind of intimate, traditional neighborhoods favored throughout San Diego.

Cassero, meaning Bridge House in Italian, is planned to include 38 homes, designed in pairs to look like a single, grand residence.

Cassero will offer three, two-story paired home models ranging in size from 2,079 to 2,623 square feet. Homes with 3 to 4 bedrooms, and 2 1/2 to 3 baths and attached, two-car garages will offer lots of room to spread out and live. Generous pantries and a desk complement large kitchens with granite countertops. Kitchens and nooks are arranged with family rooms to create a free-flowing floor plan.

[expand title="Kensington Court | "]kensington-1Kensington Court by Davidson
-Approximately 2,660 – 3,156 square feet
-3-4 bedrooms
-2 1/2-3 1/2 baths
-2-car garage
-Priced from the $700,000s


The award-winning talents of the Davidson building team and architect R. Douglas Mansfield have joined forces to create a new neighborhood in the community of Del Sur in north San Diego, named Kensington Court.

At Del Sur, Davidson will continue the tradition of building homes with old world details taken from magnificent architectural styles of the past-details homebuyers may not see but will certainly feel.

Although, the Kensington Court model tour at Del Sur will have three main floor plans, with an average lot size around 5,000 square feet, each elevation has been given a creative twist or turn, literally, with some garages facing the street, while others are turned for a "side entry" garage. Residence three has an interior courtyard on some plans and a garden court on others. There are actually a total of five floor plan configurations, all single family detached homes, ranging from approximately 2,660 to 3,156 square feet in size, with 3 or 4 bedrooms plus bonus room, and 2-or 2+ tandem garages.

R. Douglas Mansfield and his team of architects have created a street scene of great variety by giving the three floor plans a total of four elevational styles, described as "Spanish Colonial Revival", "Monterey", "Cottage and "Prairie." This eclectic mix is characteristic of San Diego's Historic neighborhoods surrounding Balboa Park and the downtown vicinity.

Since 1978, Davidson has earned industry accolades for more than 40 residential projects. For more information visit www.davidsoncommunities.com[/expand]

[expand title="Madeira | "]madeira1Madeira by Shea Homes
-Approximately 1,785 – 2,269 square feet
-Priced from the low $600,000s

Capturing the most appealing flavors of San Diego's rich architectural past, Shea Homes' Madeira at Del Sur will offer homebuyers something that is unmistakably familiar yet refreshingly new.

Familiarity will be created by a diverse mix of classic architectural styles-California Bungalow, Spanish Colonial, Rustic Cottage and Mediterranean Farmhouse-that leant character to the tree-lined streets of 1920s San Diego.

Innovation will be reflected in a unique site design that provides the opportunity for charming streetscapes, mostly free of garages, as well as pastoral greenways and paseos that weave their way throughout the neighborhood.

New ideas will also be revealed in uniquely designed floor plans that are crafted to make even smaller spaces feel open and expansive and foster a close relationship between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Five stylish two-story floor plans ranging from approximately 1,676 to 2,233 square feet will be enhanced by spacious courtyards or patios for outdoor living and entertaining. Inside each home, families will gather in a spacious great room that will join with a gourmet island kitchen and family-sized dining room to create a versatile household activity center.

Upstairs, luxurious master suites will encompass walk-in closets and elegant baths with separate tub and shower in most plans, and varying plans will feature an airy loft or media room that may be selected as an optional extra bedroom. In addition, most plans will offer a secluded den or optional bedroom on the first floor.

The cornerstone of Madeira will be careful attention to the artistry of fine craftsmanship. For example, the extensive architectural detailing that gives the homes their richly authentic character will be showcased on all four sides of each residence, making them just as stunning from the backyard as they are from the street. Also, the rear-access garages on select homes will combine with front-access motor courts on other plans to bring a look of individuality to each home and a look of diversity to the entire neighborhood.

And while the homes recall the stylistic charm of decades past, they will incorporate an array of appointments that reflect Shea Homes' commitment to the future. Heading the list will be solar electric systems on select homes. These systems provide clean, renewable electricity that will provide substantial savings on homeowners' utility bills, and the solar panels are a new, roof-integrated design that blends seamlessly into the roof tiles, adding value and functionality to every home without sacrificing aesthetic beauty.

There is a distinctive quality to San Diego's heritage. It can be seen in the timeless charm of the casual California ambiance that echoes throughout such historic neighborhoods as Coronado, Mission Hills and Balboa Park. Now, that same quality will echo anew at Madeira at Del Sur, where simplicity and a sense of place continue to be celebrated and treasured in a community the co-exists harmoniously with the natural mountains and canyons that surround it.

Shea Homes has earned the distinction of being named one of "America's Best Builders" by Builder Magazine and the National Association of Home Builders. For more information, please visit the company's website at sheahomes.com.[/expand]
