Aurora at Altair: Attractively priced from $1.4M

Aurora, located just inside the guarded gates of Altair, is a neighborhood of earthy, contemporary Spanish Colonial Revival and South West inspired palettes and forms, closely clustered together, allowing for an easy, amenity rich lifestyle within Irvine’s latest embodiment of master planned luxury.

Plan 1 features three casual, California coastal elevations, each displaying a unique combination of tumbled stone and warm stucco. The home, while more intimate in size than others, rivals the larger plans for outdoor entertaining space, providing a total of three, including a spacious street-facing rooftop terrace, allowing your visitors to immediately join into any and all festivities. This 2,964 square foot home includes 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms with pricing beginning in the low $1.4 millions.

As the homes in the Aurora neighborhood are cozied right on up next to each other, harkening back to the picturesque small towns and villages of yesteryear, yet, this time, they’re sun kissed and smiling for they know there’s plenty of room for a big black luxury SUV and dazzlingly white German sedan in the front and center two car garage. Due to this familiarity and intimacy, each bedroom in this house is a complete suite, allowing for complete privacy and multiple gathering spaces throughout the home, such as terraces, patios, and bonus rooms ensuring a clear delineation of spaces. For example, the upstairs wet bar allows the children to remain upstairs while mom and dad host a dinner party downstairs, yet this would never have stopped me when I was young—by desert I was always sitting around the table at my parent’s dinner parties, watching, listening, conversing with the adults, what a true pleasure it was, and what a trajectory this little penchant of mine has sent me down. It is this kind of thinking, this preemptive, anticipatory decoration and design which creates a truly luxurious environment.

Residence 2, a three story home, when paired with its siblings Residences 1 and 3, begin to reveal the underpinnings in Lennar’s new treatment of upscale design and spatial awareness—no longer does a simple great room with a massive kitchen island cut it, today’s affluent homebuyers are seeking architectural details and designer curated interior finishes, to feel as if they do not live in a $1.4M+ tract home, but in a truly custom, or customized, abode. Here, this is exemplified by the inclusion of a separate powder room on the ground floor, an en suite bath and walk in closet for each bedroom, his and hers closets in the master suite, and the third floor sky loft all contribute to the feeling of living in a bespoke luxury creation. This 3,500 square foot home includes 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms with pricing beginning in the upper $1.4 millions.

The floor plan of the home reveals the inner workings of the plan in detail, highlighting the fact that each floor is fully plumbed and deeply interconnected by a delightful set of woven stairs. I can just imagine lounging on the third floor terrace, reading, the neighborhood below, a light breeze jostling the pages—what a scene!

Residence 3 unveils Lennar’s signature Next Gen® — The Home Within A Home® design, tailored specifically to multigenerational and extended families as it allows space for a separate, fully contained first floor living suite, complete with separate entrance, kitchenette, and stacked washer and dryer. This 3,386 square foot home includes 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms with pricing beginning in the low $1.6 millions.

The floor plan expands upon the elevated outdoor space of the previous designs while also increasing in interior complexity by containing The Home Within A Home®, sky bridges, and even larger and more numerous entertaining areas.

Aurora provides entry level, guard-gated luxury, offering highly customizable options for each of the three residence types. The combination of address, amenities, and new, fresh design forms allow Aurora to shine through in the Orange County housing market.
