Legacy Collection Models will Open on November 17th

It is a bit anti-climatic because potential homebuyers have been getting “hard hat” tours for weeks now, but Warmington Homes has announced that its Legacy Collection models in Covenant Hills will be open to the public starting on Saturday, November 17th.  The model homes are located on Stockmen, off of Sky Ranch.  We’ve heard that the early feedback on the two floorplans has been mixed, and pricing starts in the “low one millions.”  We’ll try to visit the models shortly after the grand opening and give you our thoughts.

One thing is for sure, it will be good to fill in some of those empty lots in Covenant Hills.  With Sendero moving forward under full steam, it feels as though Rancho Mission Viejo Company and DMB Associates have forgotten to finish Ladera Ranch and have moved on.
