Since it debuted last October, The Legacy Collection has impressed all who’ve visited. It’s been called many things; beautiful, amazing, spectacular, luxurious, and a fine example of a classic Warmington home. Today, it’s being called something else too. Award Winning.
The Legacy Collection in Covenant Hills earned an Award of Merit in the 2013 Golden Nugget Awards competition for its Plan 1 model in the Single Family Detached Home – Over 4,000 Square Feet category. This honor distinguishes The Legacy Collection from 536 entries and qualified the community to be eligible for the Grand Award.
“What an exciting confirmation this is,” said Michael Williams, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Southern California division of Warmington Residential. “We diligently sought to create an enclave at The Legacy Collection that would be awe-inspiring and worthy of its prestigious, view-oriented setting behind the gates of Covenant Hills. We are very pleased with the outcome and found home buyers have been impressed as well. Now, to get this recognition from our industry peers is very rewarding on many levels.”
Presented by PCBC and sponsored by Builder Magazine, the Golden Nugget Awards, now in its 50th year, is the oldest and most prestigious design awards competition in the nation. The Golden Nugget Awards recognizes builders, developers, architects and land planners who improve communities in the U.S. and abroad through exceptional concepts in planning, design and development.
As Williams said, home buyers have been very impressed by this collection, which represents the first new home opportunity in Ladera Ranch in five years. The community was originally slated to include 28 home sites but due to the popularity of these million-dollar-plus residences, Warmington was able to secure and offer an additional 20 home sites. Already, 30 of the 48 homes have been released for sale and 29 have been sold.
Available from the low $1 millions, the luxury homes that make up The Legacy Collection are designed to capture the essence of the Southern California indoor/outdoor lifestyle, with sunlit courtyards and sprawling great rooms. An optional second level can be added to include casitas, lofts, bonus rooms, bedrooms or decks. The newest 20 home sites offer several exciting enhancements as well such as optional Legacy Rooms, loggias and additional bedrooms.
The sales office and model homes are open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The address is 65 Stockmen Road, Ladera Ranch. Get a map and directions here.

“Now at last, it is possible for homebuyers to fully grasp just how spectacular these residences are. Walking into the models, feeling the expansive living spaces which extend outdoors into breezy courtyards, and seeing for the first time the exciting floorplan and rooms options…it is a true ‘ah-ha’ moment. These model speak a thousands words….yet may leave you speechless,” siad Michael Williams. “They are stunning.”
Long-awaited and highly-anticipated, the two professionally designed model homes at Warmington Residential’s The Legacy Collection in Ladera’s only gated village of Covenant Hills, make their debut today and will be open for touring from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days this weekend. There has been much enthusiasm surrounding the opening of The Legacy Collection at Covenant Hills because it is the first new home community to debut within the planned community of Ladera Ranch in nearly five years.
While the models open today for the first time for touring, sales have been underway for several weeks and the response to this brand new, hilltop enclave of single-level and optional two-story homes has been overwhelmingly positive. The first sales phase is sold out and Phase Two is approaching a sellout. The release of Phase Three has been moved up to continue to meet strong buyer demand.
Located within a custom home area of Covenant Hills, The Legacy Collection is an intimate neighborhood of homes described as “luxurious” because of the large size of the floorplans that incorporate open concept living with great rooms, hilltop setting, and array of sophisticated features. The homes are distinguished by two spacious and flexible single-level plans that can accommodate a second level with bonus room, casita, deck and additional bedrooms; and their ability to offer an “indoor/outdoor” lifestyle with the inclusion of private and spacious courtyards that extend primary living spaces through to the outdoors.
Four single-level and six two-story floorplan variations offer approximately 3,041 to 4,159 square feet, with up to six bedrooms and 5.5 baths. Prices for these homes begin from the low-$1 millions.
The brand new model homes display rich European style architecture with Tuscan and Santa Barbara influences and offer the first chance for prospective home buyers to get a glimpse of the sophisticated and coveted lifestyle opportunity that The Legacy Collection presents.
“For months, we’ve been touting and promoting the exceptional lifestyle opportunity that residents of The Legacy Collection will enjoy,” said Michael Williams, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Warmington Residential. “Now at last, it is possible for homebuyers to fully grasp just how spectacular these residences are. Walking into the models, feeling the expansive living spaces which extend outdoors into breezy courtyards, and seeing for the first time the exciting floorplan and rooms options…it is a true ‘ah-ha’ moment. These model speak a thousands words….yet may leave you speechless,” Williams emphasized. “They are stunning.”
Beyond the rare south county opportunity for single-level living behind private entry gates in a hilltop setting, The Legacy Collection also is distinctive because of its many custom-caliber included specifications. The kitchens are equipped with a large center island, stainless steel Thermador® 48” professional cooktop with 6 burners and griddle; 48” hood with halogen lighting, double oven with convection upper oven plus built-in microwave and a Energy Star®, Powerfully Quiet® dishwasher with stainless steel interior. Also featured are cast iron white porcelain farm sinks with stainless steel faucet and a walk-in pantry.
The master suite lives like a private sanctuary with private bath with 6-foot soaking tub with optional jets, separate stall shower and double vanities and expansive walk-in closets. On some plans, the master suite opens to the courtyards, on other plans, the master suite opens to the rear yard, emphasizing the indoor/outdoor lifestyle these homes seek to promote.
Other stylized included features that lend an upscale, customized flair to these sophisticated residences are 45” fireplaces in the living rooms, traditional 6” baseboards and 3” casings throughout and window stool and apron in selected areas.
The options for customization and personalization are nearly endless but Williams believes that buyers will be drawn to the chance to incorporate rustic “beam” ceiling detail in main living areas and sliding pocket doors that offer “disappearing” walls that create a truly seamless indoor/outdoor living environment. These items all are on display in the model homes, along with many other compelling optional appointments and features.
“These models are a must-see,” Williams said. “A tremendous amount of time, care and attention has been paid to ensuring that these homes reflect the caliber of their location and touring them is an adventure: There is something interesting and fabulous at every turn.”
Beyond their private retreat at home, residents of The Legacy Collection have at their doorsteps all the pleasures of the gated Covenant Hills lifestyle including village clubs and recreational amenities, an established community with a local reputation second to none and 1,600 acres of pristine, protected open space.
The Legacy Collection is located at 5 Stockmen Road in Ladera Ranch. The models are now open for touring from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
