Orange County and Inland Buyers Find Grand Estate Living At Bella Vista Estates in Riverside.

WEST RIVERSIDE, CA (July 30, 2016) - Bella Vista Estates has won the acclaim of homebuyers from Orange County and the Inland Empire. Those who seek more luxury for their money have found it in the superb floor plans, features, panoramic views and low 1.1% tax rate of Bella Vista Estates. Close to shopping, restaurants, entertainment, cultural events and Metrolink and freeways, this small hilltop gated community offers convenience with exquisite design, elegance and sophistication. 

“Homes of this magnitude are sought after for those who desire an estate caliber home,” said Emily Griffin, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Griffin Residential, “particularly with the panoramic views that Bella Vista Estates has to offer. This appeal has reached far beyond the Inland Empire because the contrast between pricing here and in LA or Orange counties is significant. The level of size and luxury that is available on the western edge of Riverside makes it very worthwhile for homebuyers to explore.”

True to a European inspiration, the homes offer the timelessness of classic architecture, coupled with an appreciation of contemporary living, along with breathtaking panoramic views.  The artfully detailed architecture offers an impressive balance of beauty and proportion, from the community’s gated arrival through the porticos and courtyards of each home.

Soaring interiors reveal open plan living that is extraordinary.  The collection includes single-level and two-story designs, ranging 4 to 6 bedrooms and 3.5 to 5.5 baths and encompassing approximately 3,315 to 4,442 square feet. Detached casita options add flexibility to home designs and are available for adding more living space, home site permitting. Outdoor living space is naturally a part of each home, creating the quintessence of California living and maximizing the valley-to-mountain views.  People are surprised to find that pricing begins from the mid $700,000s, especially with the very low 1.1% tax rate.

Residence One presents a marvel for single-level living, with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and 3-car garage. The emphasis on entertaining spaces is readily apparent.  A grand foyer entrance leads to a fireplace warmed great room and large dining area that flow seamlessly into the gourmet kitchen with expansive island. Adding to island seating, a large, airy breakfast nook is directly off the kitchen and perfect for casual meals. Home chefs will delight in the adjoining activity room or optional prep kitchen and a walk in to the pantry secures an appreciation of the spaciousness and wonderfully generous storage. An office connects you to the living areas and can be turned into a fifth bedroom with private bathroom.  Add a personal touch with options such as stylish outdoor room to create a place to take in the scenic splendour, or a multi-general suite might be the right fit for your family’s needs.  And wait until you see the magnificence of the master bedroom suite, designed as a private haven for a retreat into luxury.  

The Residence Two lives magnificently as a single-level home featuring a unique master living suite on the first floor, and includes 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Its expansive entry courtyard and foyer make a grand statement about the unique character of a California lifestyle. An inviting, sunlit morning room, and stunning kitchen with large island and walk-in pantry are arranged to flow into entertainment spaces.

The downstairs master suite is an impeccable study in personal luxury, offering spa-inspired bath with separate soaking tub and elegant shower, double sinks and roomy walk-in closet.  For those wishing to have a multi-generational suite, that important option is available.  Upstairs, two spacious bedrooms plus a surprisingly spacious game room provide individual privacy with options for a bonus room, study, loft or a sixth bedroom with private bath.  Residents will enjoy the convenience of a downstairs laundry room and the advantages of a 4-car, 3-bay garage.
