CASTAIC, CA– MBK Homes has opened its sales center and released its first phase for sale at its newSaratoga neighborhood at Hillcrest in Castaic. These spacious family homes will certainly be well received especially as the neighborhood is being built by MBK Homes, the homebuilder who built the popular Highlands neighborhood in Hillcrest.

Continuing on the success of The Highlands, Saratoga offers larger homes that present homeshoppers many of the same benefits of its predecessor neighborhood. Especially appreciated is the picturesque hilltop setting and the convenient location less than five minutes from the freeway.

Saratoga's generously proportioned two-story designs offer 2,742 to 3,266 square feet with four to seven bedrooms and three baths. Priced from the low $300,000s, every plan will include a three-car garage.

Children living at Saratoga's are within walking distance of the elementary and middle schools, enabling them to enjoy a more leisurely pace getting to school. The highly regarded Castaic School District administers the elementary and middle schools while the award-winning William S. Hart School District administers the high school.

Gourmet island kitchens, fireplace-warmed family rooms, formal living and dining rooms and sumptuous master suites with expansive walk-in closets top the list of the rooms with special design elements. Varying plans will take on the added dimension of a handy loft, a secluded den or an optional bonus room, and every plan gives buyers the opportunity to transform a section of the garage into an extra bedroom on the first floor that's ideal for overnight guests.

The homes will create a dramatic first impression with a variety of architectural styles, including California, Mission, Mediterranean and Tuscan-influenced, while selected plans will be accented by charming front porches or split-design garages that frame an inviting entry courtyard.

Its secluded setting in the new master-planned community of Hillcrest, just minutes from the freeway making shopping, commuting and traveling convenient will also enhance Saratoga's appeal. Saratoga is also located near the beautiful Castaic Lake, a 9,000-acre state recreational park that features both power boating and water sports activities and a peaceful lagoon for non-power boats and swimming during the warmer months.
