Those who live near the new Sage Creek High School in north Carlsbad will have another large new-home tract beginning shortly. The West Village of Robertson Ranch was recently acquired by Toll Brothers, and they expect to be selling new homes there in 2015.
Shapell Homes purchased the acreage for $30+ million in 2010 from the Robertson family. At the time, they said they would build:
Single-family homes ranging from 1,800 to 4,000 square feet and townhomes from about 1,400 to 1,800 square feet. A senior housing project, probably for rent, also is expected.
If you are thinking of selling a home that is close to Tamarack/Cannon and El Camino Real, you may want to consider selling this year when there is less competiton!
Here is a tour of the area:
This builder paid $20 million for the land in December, 2010, and have already sold over 50 homes averaging around $1M each. This site was a pile of rocks three years ago – here’s a tour of the neighborhood now:
Phase 1 was released last Saturday with six homes available, and it doesn’t look like they sold any yet (the hostess didn’t know):
For those million-dollar buyers who prefer to purchase a new home, there is another big grand opening this weekend. Pick out your new home in Leucadia up to 5,180 sf!
They shouldn’t have any trouble blowing these out, thanks mostly to the expert staging. They pay commissions, so take a realtor with you on your first visit and get free help – take me!
The transformation of Leucadia continues as this former mobile-home park is turned into new housing tracts:
The SP models at Del Sur – a limited-edition collection of elegant estate-caliber homes enhanced by generous interiors and expansive outdoor spaces. The Mello-Roos ranges from $6,600 to $7,200 per year, depending upon purchase price and square footage. They have three canyon-front houses for sale currently, all in the $1,220,000s:
Here is an intro to Davidson’s Arterro at La Costa Town Square:
Phase 1 prices range from $1,029,900 for 3,843 sf ($268/sf) to $1,129,900 for 4,384 sf ($258/sf ).
You don’t see this every day – two houses plus a studio built in 1935 on two lots totaling 2.31 acres in Old Carlsbad:
These new homes next to the Crosby look reasonably priced – well, except for the HOA and Mello-Roos fees. They have five of these Plan-2 houses for sale, starting at $250/sf, which isn’t bad for homes with the master suite downstairs, private guest suite, and lot sizes that average 18,000sf.
But the monthly fees will make your head spin, and probably why they have standing inventory.
HOA fee at build-out = $536/mo.
Mello-Roos = $543 to $887 per month, depending on size of house/lot.
Combined total = $1,079 to $1,423 per month.
