NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Blossom Grove at The Foothills has been superbly planned to surpass the expectations of buyers who want a brand new home, A+ access to good schools and all the benefits of a Carlsbad address. Families eager to move forward in 2010 to the first neighborhood to debut within San Diego's first master-planned community since 2006 can set down roots where they want to belong at Blossom Grove. With prices anticipated to start from the low $600,000s, visit to get on the inside track before the February model grand opening.


"Buyers who are thinking about their next home in a warmhearted community can expect great prices for a brand new, single-family design at Blossom Grove, as well as inclusion within the top-rated Carlsbad Unified School District. In fact, a high school is scheduled to break ground this year across the street from The Foothills, another important benefit for parents who are focused on a solid public school education for their teens," said Brian Doyle, Division President for William Lyon Homes. "When someone starts planning for their family's legacy, a beautiful home is often just the first step. A fulfilling lifestyle where people can raise their children covers a range of priorities and we are more than pleased to announce that everything will come together in one fantastic package for future residents of Blossom Grove at The Foothills."

"Every family hero should also take into consideration that the government recently extended the Federal Tax Credit* deadline through the end of April. The credit amount is considerable and includes up to $8,000 for first-time buyers or up to $6,500 for qualified repeat buyers. These extra financial benefits will come in handy for buyers who act quickly during Blossom Grove's initial phase offerings," Doyle added.

Located along Cannon Road, just east of El Camino Real, Blossom Grove is just a three-mile drive from the beach, setting the stage for homebuyers who prefer coastal elegance. Ultra-flexible one- and two-story designs will range from approximately 1,992 to 2,840 square feet of space, with three to five bedrooms, great rooms that are perfect for entertaining, two to three bathrooms, two-car garages and two-car garages plus storage. Large rooms and outdoor courtyards will highlight individual floorplans.

Open space, parks and trails will give residents of this amenity-rich community plenty of breathing room. Quality family time can be spent together at the private recreation center, which will showcase a swimming pool, barbecue/picnic area and fireplace, paddle courts and yoga exercise circle. A variety of shopping centers and seaside recreation are situated within close proximity to The Foothills.

Spanning 157 acres, nearly half of The Foothills' property has been designated as permanent open space. The City of Carlsbad also has plans for a 13.5-acre community park, which will include a lighted, multi-field soccer complex.

*The Federal Tax Credit of up to $8,000 is only for qualified first-time buyers purchasing a principal residence. The Federal Tax Credit of up to $6,500 is only for qualified repeat homebuyers who have owned and lived in their previous home for five consecutive years out of the last eight years. The tax credits apply only to homes priced at $800,000 or less. The $8,000 tax credit now applies to sales occurring on or after January 1, 2009 and on or before April 30, 2010. The $6,500 tax credit is available for homes purchased after November 6, 2009 and on or before April 30, 2010. However, in cases where a binding sales contract is signed by April 30, 2010, the home purchase qualifies provided it is completed and escrow is closed by June 30, 2010. William Lyon Homes is not responsible for confirming whether the Federal Tax Credit is still available, nor is giving legal, accounting or tax advice or consulting of any kind. Please consult with your tax professional or attorney or visit for complete details.
