YORBA LINDA, CA - With its desirable golf course location, commanding city views, impressive home designs, exceptional value and no Mello-Roos or HOA, MBK Homes' Greenbrier at Vista Del Verde in Yorba Linda is winning rave reviews from homebuyers.

Among the most enthusiastic are Angel and Natividad Astillero and Benjamin and Weny Wu. Married for 45 years, The Astilleros are parents of adult children, while the Wus have two young daughters.

A professional architect, Natividad Astillero praised the design of their home, while her husband, a realtor and avid golfer, loves being able to walk to the adjacent Black Gold Golf Club.

"Our home is very well-designed from an architect's point of view," Natividad stated." And it has lots of special touches such as arches, soffits and crown moldings." Angel echoed her sentiments, noting, "MBK Homes put a lot of thought into the design; it's perfectly balanced, and everything flows naturally from room to room. It will not become obsolete for many, many years, and as a result, the home will hold its value for the next several decades."

The Astilleros also extolled the impact of the view from their home: "We love the view; it's truly spectacular," Angel proclaimed. "You can hardly find anything else like it in Yorba Linda."

The Wus applauded Greenbrier's outstanding value. "There are so many included features that we didn't have to spend extra on upgrades," Benjamin observed, and his wife added, "It's a very nice neighborhood, and the local schools are excellent."

Benjamin also pointed out the exemplary service they received. "The MBK staff members define gracious hospitality," he said. "They were very helpful and accommodating, and they made us feel like we were part of their extended family."

The Astilleros and the Wus are among a growing number of homebuyers who are singing the praises of Greenbrier, where five distinctive two-story floorplans feature grand living areas spanning approximately 2,684 to 3,283 square feet, including three to five bedrooms and two and one-half to four and one-half baths. Prices start in the high $900,000s.

The many design highlights of the homes are led by gourmet kitchens that set the scene for culinary excellence with granite countertops, food-preparation islands, breakfast nooks, maple cabinetry, built-in GE Profile stainless steel appliances, walk-in storage pantries and traditional butler's pantries in select plans. The Astilleros were especially captivated by their home's luxurious master suite, which takes on the added dimension of a private retreat and a optional balcony that overlooks their spectacular city lights view. A Kohler whirlpool tub, separate shower and Kohler plumbing fixtures add to the elegance of the master bath. Varying plans also offer such flexible options as a private guest suite, a super-size family room, a versatile bonus room and a handy hobby room. The many standard features that impressed the Wus include Category 5 wiring for high-speed data connections throughout the homes, custom-crafted staircases and an energy-saving recirculating hot water system.

Practical enhancements range from step-saving upstairs laundry rooms to split or tandem three-bay garages.

The striking appearance of the homes begins with richly detailed Craftsman, Spanish, Traditional, Italian and Monterey architecture.

Already home to hundreds of fortunate families, Vista Del Verde is renowned for its gorgeous setting and its exceptional quality of life. The 18-hole championship golf course at the Black Gold Golf Club provides a scenic backdrop for the community's neighborhoods, and its fully equipped clubhouse and practice facilities add to its appeal.

All of those amenities and the community's meticulously maintained landscaping are made possible without the substantial cost of master plan association dues or Mello-Roos tax assessments.
