Rice Ranch is a master planned commmunity of new homes and condos in Orcutt California. On Labor Day, I visited the models at Rice Ranch in nearby Orcutt, California. Rice Ranch is a master planned community which will have new single family homes, high end condominiums, and a 26 acre sports complex and community park. The Orcutt California community will have over 300 acres of preserved open space. After viewing the master planned community, “Summerlin,” in Las Vegas over the Labor Day weekend, I was sold on the concept of a master planned community and curious to see how Rice Ranch was turning out.
Pacific Crest Estates Homes in Santa Maria CA – 1st Quarter 2011 Market Update
Local developer, Inland Pacific Builders, began construction on Pacific Crest Estates homes in 2005. Pacific Crest is conveniently located on the south end of Santa Maria and is a short 20 minute drive to the main gate of Vandenberg AFB. The one and two-story homes include three to five bedroom plans, two to four car garages, grand master suites, spacious kitchens, and vaulted ceilings. The homes range from 1,200 to 2,500 square feet in size.
Pacific Crest floor plans are among my favorites built in Santa Maria. There have been a number of short sales and foreclosures in Pacific Crest as many of the homes were sold at the height of the market. This translates into significant discounts on homes that are “almost new” and as a result they have been snapped up quickly. This is a great opportunity for first time home buyers and those looking to upgrade into a newer home with less maintenance.
