With over 50% of homes sold, buyers' chance to live 3 blocks from the beach is going fastHUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pacific Shores, known for its luxury attached homes and resort lifestyle, is quickly becoming the premier address in Huntington Beach. Over half of the community's homes have been sold to date, meaning that the window of opportunity for homebuyers to live just 3 blocks from the beach is getting smaller. For those that have already purchased a new home in the community, the choice could not have been any clearer. "In a word, I love it. I really, really love it. It's a 'pinch me' kind of place to live," said homeowner, Renee Mumma. Brittany Reynolds is another homeowner who instantly saw the promise and the potential of life at Pacific Shores. "I love living here now because it's a beautiful community and I'm so close to the beach…I really think it will pay off in the long run, too." Residents like Renee and Brittany have been an integral part of Pacific Shores' early success. As a token of its appreciation for its homeowners, the community hosted a hugely successful residents' event around the sparkling swimming pool. Additionally, homeowners who bought their home in September of 2012 received a pair of beach cruiser bicycles, which make getting to the beach that much easier. The new year is already shaping up to be just as exciting. The community recently opened the next selling phases of its two luxury attached home collections: The Villas and The Bungalows. The Villas, now selling Phase 6 of 9, is where luxury soars to dramatic heights while offering residents the carefree convenience of attached-home living.
