CORONA/NORCO, CA–Introducing Southern California's newest new-home value leader, sales are now under way at MBK Homes' Wisteria neighborhood in the brand-new master-planned community of The Corona Valley.

"The brightest feature of these properties is its location," remarked Tim Kane, Vice President of MBK Homes. "Southland residents will enjoy the pleasant country-side setting with the added convenience of being central to employment centers in three counties."

With spacious single-family detached homes starting in the $190,000s, Wisteria is one of the lowest-priced neighborhoods in the entire Southland, and its value advantage is heightened by an impressive array of price-included appointments, including gourmet kitchen islands in every plan, comfortable family rooms with cozy fireplaces and convenient media niches, central air conditioning, three-car garages with roll-up doors, and complete front-yard landscaping with automatic sprinklers.

The complete Wisteria collection includes four one- and two-story floorplans ranging from approximately 1,825 to 2,405 square feet, including three to five bedrooms and two to three baths, and in varying plans, buyers may customize their home to meet their needs with such flexible room options as a secluded den or study, a handy loft, a super-size family room or a versatile bonus room.

Kitchen conveniences are led by ceramic-tile countertops, General Electric appliances and European-style oak cabinetry with fruitwood stain, concealed hinges, finished interiors and adjustable upper shelves. Master suites set the scene for personal luxury with large walk-in closets, inviting oval tubs, separate showers and dual-sink pullmans. Fine appointments continue throughout each home, from ceramic-tile entries to raised-panel interior doors and interior laundry rooms.

The striking appearance of the homes begins with a mix of Santa Barbara, Monterey and California Ranch-style architecture, which is accented by fire-resistant concrete tile roofing. Address numbers are illuminated for the convenience of nighttime guests.

Buyers may also personalize their home with a variety of popular options, including surround sound speaker systems, complete home office packages, custom cabinetry, rear-yard decks and an array of decorator upgrades in flooring, tile and appliances.

Wisteria residents will enjoy the pleasant, uncrowded country ambiance of The Corona Valley, a new 310-acre master-planned community being developed by Trimark Pacific Homes. Located just north of Corona in the fastest-growing area of Riverside County, the community is convenient to employment centers in three counties. Designed to fulfill the needs of today's families with approximately 1,200 homes from several of Southern California's largest and most respected builders, the community will also encompass a 12-acre neighborhood park with ball fields, basketball courts and barbecues, as well as a proposed elementary school and a commercial center that will provide close-to-home shopping for residents.

The community is also close to a wide range of recreation destinations, from the San Bernardino Mountain resorts to the Temecula wine country, as well as Riverside's many cultural attractions, including five museums, a philharmonic orchestra, a ballet company and an opera company. In addition, the nearby Santa Ana River Regional Park offers an extensive array of recreational opportunities, including the scenic Santa Ana River bike trails.

Wisteria is the newest example of excellence from MBK Homes Ltd., which combines a lasting tradition of fine homebuilding and real estate development expertise with the financial stability of Mitsui & Co., Ltd. Each community is the result of extensive research and professional experience, reflecting MBK Homes' unwavering commitment to complete customer satisfaction.
