San Ramon, Calif. (December 3, 2019) — Trumark Companies, a national award-winning California developer and homebuilder, announced the final home closing in its 806-home master planned community of Wallis Ranch in Dublin, Calif. The final closing represents the complete close-out of the highly amenitized master plan, which was named “Master Planned Community of the Year” by the National Association of Home Builders. Wallis Ranch consists of a mix of single-family homes and townhomes in eight distinct neighborhoods built by six homebuilders, including Trumark Homes. Sales commenced in Summer 2016 for the master plan, and quickly attracted families seeking spacious housing accessible to Bay Area employment centers.
“With incredibly high land constraints and rising costs in the San Francisco Bay Area, Trumark set out to create a unique, well-designed alternative for professionals who want access to employment centers such as Silicon Valley, but still crave a living experience outside of the urban center,” said Tony Bosowski, Northern California division president at Trumark Homes. “With a hillside backdrop, the Trumark team created Wallis Ranch where residents can breathe and enjoy the open spaces, while remaining accessible to jobs, entertainment and more.”
Connection to the outdoors was a priority in the design of Wallis Ranch. With the natural environment and the land’s history at the forefront, Wallis Ranch includes 35 acres of preserved open space and miles of sidewalks, paths and trails. At the heart of the community is a resort-style clubhouse that includes a fitness center, pool and spa, fireside lounge area and event lawn. Trumark hired a local artist to provide custom artwork that is representative of the area’s history.
Trumark acquired the 184-acre Wallis Ranch property in 2013 and worked closely with the City of Dublin, environmental agencies, historians and many other consultants in the project’s development to preserve natural wildlife, conserve resources and incorporate the area’s natural features. Wallis Ranch was the first master planned community in California to use 100% reclaimed water for irrigation. Trumark also constructed a 2.5-mile long, three-foot-high concrete herpetological barrier around the entire development in order to protect endangered species native to the area.
“Trumark has a long-standing relationship with the City of Dublin. The completion and final sales at Wallis Ranch represent a successful partnership and working relationship,” added Bosowski. “We look forward to future development endeavors together as we continue to find new ways to enhance living in Dublin and draw new residents to the city.”
Adding to Trumark’s success in Dublin, the homebuilder also recently completed the final sales at Fielding, a 139 single family detached home neighborhood within Wallis Ranch, and Perch, located in the city’s downtown. Trumark introduced Perch in 2017 to the Dublin market, offering the areas first rooftop decks. The community consists of 60 two- and three-bedroom townhomes ranging from 1,521 to 1,758 square feet, plus additional outdoor living space on the rooftop decks. In addition to a unique architectural design, Perch offered buyers modern features such as smart home technology and electrical vehicle conduits, among many others.
Perch was named the “Attached Community of the Year” by the Bay Area Building Industry Association’s “Excellence in Home Building” awards in 2018. Perch is located proximate to Northern California’s BART transit system, providing access to the Bay Area. Home sales concluded in June 2019 with the sale of the final model home.
Building on its momentum in Northern California, Trumark also is underway on its first age-qualified master plan, located in Manteca, Calif. The Collective, offering buyers a distinct living experience focused wellness and a vibrant lifestyle with the first community center registered to achieve WELL Certification by the International WELL Building Institute.
