Bam! Just like that. After years of housing doldrums, Warmington Residential debuts The Legacy Collection at Covenant Hills in Ladera Ranch and suddenly, home buying is back! Coincidence? More like timing and a really phenomenal opportunity. For the first time in four years, a new home community was introduced in Ladera Ranch, within its only gated enclave in the custom home neighborhood of Covenant Hills.
Adding to the appeal is the availability of single-level floorplans, which is a rarity in south Orange County. Single-level yet flexible and able to accommodate a second level, The Legacy Collection has found broad appeal among all types of buyers. With an abundance of square footage that exceeds 4,100 square feet and up to six available bedrooms, these homes offer the chance to live in a single level home while enjoying the extra space and convenience of an optional second level.
The response has been impressive and sales have exceeded expectations: Since its recent debut, the 18 homes that have been released at The Legacy Collection have all been sold. In fact, each phase has sold prior to construction commencing, and there is a deep waiting list of interested buyers for future phases. Homes are priced from the low- to mid-$1 millions
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. For more information, and to view the interactive floorplans, go to www.LegacyCollectionHomes.com or call (949) 481-6502.
“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.

New homebuyer, Alyssa Sagart, got a little help from her friends, including her real estate agent father, when she purchased a brand new home at Warmington’s Northern Terrace in Las Vegas, Nevada. And that, she thinks, is a very good thing.
Thanks to a special privately funded initiative referred to as Neighborhood LIFT that is a collaboration between Wells Fargo Bank N.A., Wells Fargo Foundation, NeighborWorks America, and Las Vegas city officials, Sagart was able to purchase a Plan One, Camden, at Warmington’s Northern Terrace in Providence with down payment funds provided by the program.
As a current Las Vegas resident and a first-time buyer who was represented by her father and real estate agent, Brian Sagart, Alyssa Sagart was thrilled to learn that she qualified for the Neighborhood LIFT program, which was set up to provide in down payment assistance grants for qualified homebuyers seeking to purchase a home within the city limits. Its purpose is to help attract qualified homebuyers to Las Vegas neighborhoods struggling with a high inventory of unsold homes. In order to qualify, participants must fall within set income guidelines, agree to stay in the home for five years, and qualify for a first mortgage on the property.
Warmington’s Northern Terrace was designated as an approved Neighborhood LIFT community and was Sagart’s, who is a paralegal at a Las Vegas law firm, first choice. “I have lived in northwest Las Vegas for 10 years,” she explained. “This is an amazing area. Providence is beautiful and new and I absolutely love it.”
Her decision to purchase the Camden, Plan One, was an easy one, even though she never actually saw her home before committing to buy it. As one of Warmington’s newly designed collection of floorplans that was just introduced this year within Claremont at Northern Terrace, there was no Camden model home to tour. Sagart relied exclusively on the interactive floorplan display, brochure and counsel of her new home sales representatives in making her selection.
It was easy to see that the Camden offered exactly what I was looking for,” said Sagart. “Its size, the layout, features, location, the vaulted ceilings in the entryway….everything was just perfect.”
“While I didn’t to see my home prior to buying it, I have really enjoyed watching it be built, from the ground up literally. I’ve been able to be involved in the process every step of the way, and the sales representatives have been so helpful and knowledgeable…they answered all of my questions and put my mind at ease. It has been a great experience,” she concluded.
Sagart, who will close escrow and move in to her new home in early October, along with her dog, plans to include a little grass in her rear yard for playtime and a spa for relaxing. She said that with her new membership to The Club at Northern Terrace, which is automatic for all residents, she plans to release her gym membership and workout closer to home, for free.
“I’ve never lived someplace with something as cool as this,” Sagart said about Northern Terrace when discussing her membership to The Club at Northern Terrace. “The gym and pools, they’re incredible.”
The Club at Northern Terrace is a spacious multi-million dollar recreational facility with a full-time staff in which residents of all ages enjoy unlimited use of three pools, a spa, on-site fitness center, entertainment room with television, play areas for children as well a year round calendar of community social events and classes.
Access to The Club and these at-home recreational opportunities are unique to Warmington’s Northern Terrace neighborhoods and set this community apart from others within Providence.
Within Northern Terrace, Warmington is selling new homes within three neighborhoods: Claremont, Westcott and Emery. A total of 12 single-level and two-story home designs that range in size from 1,529 to 3,410 square feet are now selling with pricing from the mid-$100,000’s up to the low-$200,000’s. These homes include three to six bedrooms, and two- and three-space garages, per plan.
Right now there is a limited selection of homes that will be available for fall move-ins. Call or visit the community for more details.
All buyers of a brand new home at Northern Terrace have the advantage of meeting with an on-site designer from Chateau Interiors & Design to make standard and optional interior design selections for their new home, including selecting their choice of flooring.
Sagart took advantage of the opportunity to work with Chateau’s design staff and opted to include a few upgrades into her new home that personalized her living environment.
The models at Northern Terrace are open daily until 6 p.m. All home shoppers are invited to make a no-obligation appointment to for an informative consultation with an on-site representative from Wells Fargo Home Mortgage.
