CHINO HILLS, CA - It's rare for someone moving from a single-family detached home to call an attached home "spacious," but that's exactly how Chad Chantaracharat describes his new townhome at MBK Homes' Celamonte in Chino Hills.

"My 1,500-square-foot townhome actually feels more spacious than the 2,300-square foot home I owned previously," Chad stated. "It's because the third-floor master bedroom overlooks the living room, and the high ceiling in the living room creates a real feeling of openness."

Chad, who is single, purchased Celamonte's Plan Three, and took advantage of the home's first-floor bedroom, transforming it into a bar. "It gives me more space for entertaining than I had before," he noted.

Along with the home's design, Chad was attracted by Celamonte's Chino Hills address, which offers an abundance of nearby stores and restaurants, 38 community parks and convenient freeway access. "It's in an extremely desirable location, and it's close to my business," he explained.

Reflecting the exceptional quality of life in Chino Hills, it is one of the 25 safest cities in America, according to the F.B.I., and ranks #68 on Money magazine's "Top 100 Best Places to Live in the United States.

Chad was also impressed with his homebuying experience at Celamonte. "Everyone at MBK Homes, from the construction superintendent and maintenance personnel to the sales representatives and the lender, was absolutely great," he said, "and everything went very smoothly."

Offering a variety of opportunities to share Chad's satisfaction, Celamonte features four distinctive two- and three-story floorplans with prices starting in the low $400,000s. Ranging from approximately 1,042 to 1,535 square feet, including two to three bedrooms and two to three and one-half baths, the homes feature an array of impressive appointments. An elegant bath adjoins every bedroom for maximum privacy. Master suites heighten personal luxury with roomy walk-in closets and oval tubs. The spaciousness that impressed Chad extends outdoors onto inviting patios or porches and private balconies. And interior laundry areas and attached two-car garages heighten convenience for residents.

Charming, Spanish-inspired architectural styling is accented with graceful arches and tile roofs, and Celamonte's centerpiece is a private recreation area with swimming pool, spa and outdoor fireplace. Additional recreation is just minutes away at three community parks, Butterfield Park, Meadows Park and Mystic Canyon Park.

In addition, Celamonte's freeway-close location makes it easy to reach shopping, restaurants, entertainment and employment centers, and the new Butterfield Ranch Elementary School offers the educational excellence of the Chino Valley Unified School District.
