RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA––June 12, 2002––Located among the foothills of Rancho Cucamonga, Serrano at Rancho Etiwanda will offer homebuyers upscale living and value that's unmatched in the Inland Empire. The neighborhood's sales center is now open.

In response to the high standards of homebuyers, MBK Homes has put careful thought into the design of the homes at Serrano. Measuring approximately 2,862 to 3,980 square feet in size, the homes will not only feature an ample amount of functional living space, but also eye-catching architectural styling and upgraded amenities that come standard with the sales price.

"We make every effort to understand the level of sophistication and quality that today's homebuyers are looking for in a new home," remarked Stefan Markowitz, President of MBK Homes. "We have taken this into consideration during every step of the planning stages of Serrano and as a result, this collection of impeccably-designed homes will offer buyers upscale living that's definitely within reach."

Priced from just the mid $300,000s, Serrano features three two-story floorplan designs with up to five bedrooms, three baths and four-car tandem garages. All homes will include spacious family rooms, gourmet kitchens with spacious center islands and ample breakfast nooks as well as formal living and dining areas.

Architectural styles include Ranch, Country, Bungalow, Santa Barbara and San Juan and the homes are marked with features such as deep front porches, wrap-around porches and side entryways which vary per plan to create an inviting street scene.

As the Serrano Interest List continues to grow, interested homebuyers are encouraged to join the Serrano Interest List by calling Neighborhood Sales Manager Kevin Lawrence or Neighborhood Sales Associate Gloria Aguilar at (909) 899-1100.
