San Elijo Hills Celebrates Grand Opening of MarketWalk,

Luxury Townhomes in its Award-Winning Towncenter

SAN MARCOS, Calif. – San Elijo Hills is celebrating the grand opening of MarketWalk, a collection of 12 townhomes featuring iconic architecture inspired by traditional “Main Streets” and impressively upgraded interiors.  MarketWalk is set in the heart of the award-winning San Elijo Hills Towncenter above retail shops. The urban-style neighborhood and model interior by Pacific Dimensions will open to the public August 1, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

MarketWalk offers two- and three-story homes ranging from approximately 1,200 to 2,746 square feet with two to four bedrooms and 2.5 to 3.5 baths. The homes were built by San Elijo Hills Town Center LLC, a sister company to San Elijo Hills Development Company, which developed the 1,920-acre community. The townhomes are priced from the high $300,000s to the $700,000s and the three-story units meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.

“MarketWalk’s prime location enables homeowners to take full-advantage of San Elijo Hills’ vibrant towncenter and recreation-oriented lifestyle. Residences are situated above and will be surrounded by shopping and eateries, across the street from the picturesque town square, and just a short stroll from the 19-acre San Elijo Hills Park and the community’s elementary and middle schools,” said Mary Maloney, founder & owner of Hometown Realty, which is listing the homes for sale.

In keeping with the community’s lively architectural mosaic, the designs of the townhomes include Italian, Colonial and Loft styles, crafted by noted architect Roger Basinger, Architects BP Associates.  The streetscape looks as if the entire block grew organically over time.

“These three distinct architectural designs guide the selection of interior colors, fixtures and finishes, providing a rich, custom ambiance,” said Maloney.  “For instance, the contemporary Loft-styled homes include maple floors, black granite and sleek maple cabinetry.  The Colonial style features dark wood floors, white and black granite counters and traditional white cabinetry; and the Italianate units feature porcelain tile flooring matched with earth-tone granite and traditional cherry ebony cabinetry.   Each home features a designer-selected custom paint palette, carpeting, and highly upgraded fixtures that compliment the individual architectural style,” she said.  “The result is a custom home look with uncompromising value.”

High ceilings and large wood-trimmed windows create an open, airy feeling and gas fireplaces in the living area provide warmth and atmosphere. Selected plans feature terraces overlooking the leafy town square.

The spacious floorplans have been designed with maximum flexibility to accommodate home offices, growing families and guests. Amenities include stylish stainless steel appliances, and full-size stacked washer/dryer combinations on the bedroom level, and sumptuous master suites with spacious walk-in closets.

Exterior amenities include private entry courtyards and gated parking with private two-car garages and storage bays.

“With the top quality designer finishes included at MarketWalk, buyers won’t need to budget for additional upgrades,” said Halé Richardson, director of marketing for San Elijo Hills Development Company, master developer of San Elijo Hills.

Residents will have easy access to the education, culture, entertainment and employment opportunities surrounding San Elijo Hills.  Nearby amenities include California State University San Marcos, downtown San Marcos and  the 19 restaurants in Old California Restaurant Row, as well as shopping in Carlsbad and Encinitas and miles of beaches.

MarketWalk is one of the final components in the San Elijo Hills Towncenter, which has received numerous accolades, including a Gold Nugget Grand Award in the “Community/Town Plan” category at the Pacific Coast Builders Conference.  More recently, San Elijo Hills was honored as the “Best New Home Community” in the 12th annual “San Diego’s Best” competition sponsored by The San Diego Union-Tribune.

When complete, the 1,920-acre community of San Elijo Hills is planned for 3,400 attached and detached homes in 31 neighborhoods.  San Elijo Hills encompasses the highest point in Coastal North County and offers panoramic ocean views from many vantage points.   More than half of the property has been designated as protected open space, including 18 miles of walking trails.

Information on MarketWalk residences is available at the model sales office, 1501 San Elijo Rd, San Marcos or at Hometown Realty, located at the San Elijo Hills Visitor Center, 1215 San Elijo Road, San Marcos.  Both offices are open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
