CASTAIC, CA- For homeshoppers dreaming of a new home in time for the holidays, MBK Homes' Saratoga in Castaic is that dream come true. Located at the very top of the hill in the popular Hillcrest community in Castaic, Saratoga is a neighborhood of homes situated on spacious, pool-sized homesites boasting beautiful mountain views. Several homes are available for year-end move-ins, offering homeshoppers the chance to enjoy their new home just in time for Christmas. In addition, a new phase just released includes homesites with unobstructed views of the surrounding mountains.

"Homeshoppers visiting Saratoga are discovering that by driving just 10 more minutes on the I-5 Frwy, they can save tens of thousands of dollars, get a bigger house and a more spacious lot for their purchase price," said Tim Kane, vice president of MBK Homes. "After they've visited higher priced communities like Stevenson Ranch, they are seeing just how much farther their dollars will go here, realizing our fabulous location and that a great school district make Saratoga an attractive choice and smart value."

Saratoga residents will benefit from a convenient freeway-close location and the opportunity to live within a highly regarded school district. Saratoga's elegant two-story designs offer 2,742 to 3,266 square feet with four to seven bedrooms and three baths. Priced from the low $400,000s, every home includes a standard three-car garage.

Huge gourmet kitchens with center islands, large fireplace-warmed family rooms, formal living and dining rooms and sumptuous master suites with 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.

Designed by the architecturally renowned architect Danielian Associates, these 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 design elements such as front porches or split-design garages that frame an inviting entry courtyard. These special design-enhancing features are what lead many homeshoppers to be drawn in by Saratoga.

School-age children at Saratoga 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.

Located within the secluded setting of the new master-planned community of Hillcrest, Saratoga is just minutes from the freeway, providing shopping and an easy commute to entertainment and employment centers.

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.
