Monterey Place Grand Opening Success

by admin on November 15, 2016

img_2177We are pleased to announce an outstanding Monterey Place Grand Opening event this past Saturday, hosted by Douglas Wilson Companies and Bennion Deville Homes. Visitors witnessed the ceremonial cutting of the ribbon and were treated to street tacos  and entertainment for children.

In attendance was Chula Vista’s director of economic development who praised the project for the quality of construction and size of the homes. “These four-and five-bedroom homes are at a price point $100,000 below the median,” said Eric Crockett. 

Located west of I-805 at 267 E. Oxford St., this enclave of 23 single-family residences is nestled in an established neighborhood, convenient to transportation, schools and shopping. Two floor plans range from 1,708 to 1,973 square feet with four to five bedrooms, three baths and a two-car garage. Monterey Place homes are priced from $545,000 and designed in Spanish and Monterey styling by noted San Diego architect Kirk McKinley.

“We need and want this type of quality, eco-friendly infill development to provide new home ownership opportunities for families in Chula Vista,” said Chula Vista Mayor Mary Casillas Salas.

Monterey 2SAN DIEGO (Oct. 18, 2016) – Monterey Place, an enclave of 23 new homes in Chula Vista priced from the mid-$500,000s, will celebrate its grand opening on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The public is invited to enjoy free street tacos and refreshments while walking newly released home sites and previewing a showcase residence.

Located just west of I-805 at 267 E. Oxford St., Monterey Place features two-story floor plans ranging from 1,708 to 1,973 square feet with four to five bedrooms, three baths and a two-car garage.

Leading up to its grand opening, Monterey Place pre-sold the first phase of seven homes. When Phase Two is released for sale on Nov. 5 at 10 a.m., home shoppers can walk eight just-released home sites and reserve their home.

“Monterey Place represents the only new single-family housing in this well established neighborhood,” said Nicholas P. Wilson, chief operating office of the Douglas Wilson Cos. (DWC), the managing partner of Monterey Place LLC. “With no Mello-Roos fees and pricing from the mid $500,000s, Monterey Place is a tremendous value for move-up families and individuals who enjoy the South County lifestyle.”

A KGTV 10 News report broadcast on Jan. 29, 2016, called Monterey Place a “Chula Vista development aimed at new affordable housing concept,” with “larger homes at more affordable prices.”

Designed in Spanish and Monterey styling by noted San Diego architect Kirk McKinley, Monterey Place features Whirlpool stainless appliances, air conditioning, energy efficient amenities, front yard landscaping, and rear and side yard fencing.

Situated within the Chula Vista Elementary School District and the Sweetwater Union High School District, Monterey Place is convenient to Kellogg Elementary School, Hilltop Middle School and Hilltop High School.
