Bellavista Features a Collection of 27 Contemporary Single-Family Homes with Panoramic Views of the Hills in Central Moraga 

San Ramon, Calif. (April 2, 2019) – SummerHill Homes, a privately-owned California homebuilder, has announced the official grand opening of Bellavista, a new residential community in Moraga, California. Overlooking Mount Diablo, Bellavista features a diverse collection of 27 one- and two-story single-family homes with scenic panoramic views and large-scale floorplans. Located in the East Bay, Bellavista will introduce suburban living with convenient access to a variety of the Bay Area’s top-rated schools, major employers, retail and entertainment and transit options. Pricing for the 27 homes begins in the low $2,000,000s with first move-ins anticipated in spring 2019. At the April 13 grand opening event which begins at 11:30 a.m. at 231 Los Santos Road, prospective home buyers are invited to tour five open homes at the new community and enjoy a catered lunch.

“With Bellavista’s rare location on a dramatic hillside, we recognized an incredible opportunity to create a community of thoughtfully-designed custom homes showcasing panoramic views that provides residents with the feeling of being tucked away from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet still within close proximity to everything the East Bay has to offer,” said Robert Freed, President and CEO of SummerHill Homes. “Each home within Bellavista is distinct and a lot of attention went into making sure each home felt custom. It was important to us to ensure that our potential homebuyers were able to experience a variety of floorplans and choose the one that best suited their needs. We are very pleased with the turnout and look forward to welcoming our first residents home very soon.”   

Spanning two elevations to optimize views and living space and surrounded by pastoral rolling hills, Bellavista is comprised of 10 homes nestled at the base of the community and 17 homes atop the hill offering 180-degree views.Situated on half-acre lots, the four- to five-bedroom homes are either one-story with spacious horizontal layouts or two-stories and will boast approximately 3,131 to 4,813 square feet of living space, catering to the diverse needs of a variety of buyers. Bellavista homes feature contemporary designs with high-quality construction and finishes, ceiling heights reaching up to 12 feet, Thermador appliances, tankless water heaters and Anderson windows. The expansive floor plans also boast unique spaces within each home including Flex Spaces and California Rooms designed to act as natural extensions of the living spaces.

SummerHill Homes also recently unveiled the company’s first ever Idea Home. Featuring designs by Creative Design Group inspired by Restoration Hardware, the curated, furnished home was conceptualized to help prospective buyers envision the potential interior design and layout of each contemporary home at Bellavista. Spanning 3,662 square feet, the four-bedroom and four-and-a-half bathroom Idea Home showcases an open and bright floorplan with high ceilings as well as modern furnishings and fixtures from Restoration Hardware. 

“As we continue to develop desirable communities within flourishing markets across Northern California, we wanted to craft our take on a traditional model home with high-end design that accentuates the excellent craftmanship and attention to detail found in every home at Bellavista,” said Chris Neighbor, Chief Operating Officer at SummerHill Homes. “By designing a one-of-a-kind fully furnished home, the Idea Home represents an innovative space where prospective buyers can explore and take inspiration from the contemporary lifestyle each Bellavista home offers.”

Less than 30 minutes from Berkeley and just 20 minutes from Walnut Creek, Bellavista’s central location offers easy access to Oakland International Airport, Oracle Arena, Saint Mary’s College, Donald Rheem Elementary School, Joaquin Moraga Intermediate, Campolindo High School, a variety of parks and trails and nearby retailers and services. Additionally, Bellavista is in close proximity to local BART stations, the Highway 24 and 680 commute corridor and notable employers such as Tesla, Kaiser Permanente and Southwest Airlines.
