Taylor Woodrow Continues a Tradition of Excellence
With Opening of CliffWood in Mission Viejo


Committed to designing and building homes for the way people really want to live, Taylor Woodrow Homes is a leader in innovative design and intriguing architecture.

Recognized around the world for construction projects such as major international airports, multimillion dollar shopping malls and the tunnel under the English channel, Taylor Woodrow Homes is known in the building industry as "the firm that builds quality neighborhoods in the choicest locations throughout Southern California."

Founded in 1921, Taylor Woodrow's expertise spans over seven decades and consists of a worldwide team of more than 150 engineering, construction and development companies that are cormmitted to designing and building the highest quality homes that will satisfy the most discerning consumers. The skill and extensive experience of the Taylor Woodrow team is applied to every neighborhood the company builds, earning the company national and regional acclaim and numerous MAME, MIRM and Laurel Awards for building homes with unparalleled living environments.

Taylor Woodrow is continuing its tradifion of excellence in Southern California with the grand opening of its CliffWood development at Canyon Crest in Mission Viejo, CA. Construction on the models for phase I began in November of 1994 and was completed in February of 1995. With square footage of the project covering 22 acres, the 94 units of CliffWood are priced starting from the low $300,000s.

These single family detached homes built on 6000 square foot lots are highly detailed, flexible and targeted towards young married couples and growing families. The three available floor plans, Residence 1, Residence 11 and Residence 111, have up to five bedrooms and sizes ranging from 2,826 to 3,443 square feet.

The homes of CliffWood, designed by Scheurer Architects, feature amenities including two and three-car garages with steel roll-up sectional doors, brick fireplaces with wood mantels, central air and heating, volume ceilings, large master baths with walk-in closets, deep oval tubs and separate oversized showers.

In addition, these homes feature extra-large laundry rooms, double ovens with self-cleaning, an eye-level microwave oven and appliances from GE, Whirlpool, Kitchen Aid and Sharp. One of the most important features of these homes is the ability to customize their living space by selecting from several optional room configurations and features.

One advantage of this ability to customize living space is exemplified by the optional "imagination room" in the Residence I model. In the Residence I model, the split design of the home's three car garage gives the buyer the option to transform the single-car garage into a home office, exercise room, children's play room, or put it to another use of the buyer's choice.

In the three-bedroom Residence 11, a versatile bonus room features an optional refreshment counter with refrigerator or buyers may convert the bonus room and the optional library into extra bedrooms, increasing the total number of bedrooms to five. Residence III easily accommodates a diverse selection of activities with as many as six bedrooms available upon conversion of the library and bonus room.

All of these options makes the homes of CliffWood ideal for a diverse group of buyers with vastly differing needs. Also, these innovations can help builders and developers acquire a better understanding of what their customers want. By following the lead of established developers such as Taylor Woodrow, other developers can reap the benefits of Taylor Woodrow's experience.

Along with well designed and appointed homes, residents of CliffWood are able to take advantage of the amenities that the Canyon Crest area of Mission Viejo has to offer. Canyon Crest features lighted tennis courts, swimming pools, a large clubhouse for meetings and special occasions, a children's play area and other features tailored for the needs of today's consumer.

The Canyon Crest area also offers views of Lake Mission Viejo where a marina and exclusive beach club and park offer activities such as boating, fishing, picnicking and swimming. Other activities and amenities such as nearby golf courses, hiking and biking trails, sports fields, shopping centers, restaurants and schools complete the picture at CliffWood. Taking its place among Taylor Woodrow's other communities in California, CliffWood continues to attract a growing number of home buyers by making the desire to enhance their lifestyle and reach a higher standard of living attainable. As construction continues overlooking scenic Lake Mission Viejo, Taylor Woodrow Homes will continue to provide home buyers with the best possible value for their money.

Guided by its team approach to management and construction, the commitment by Taylor Woodrow to providing the best in design, the best locations, the best features and the best prices, is exemplified by its latest project: CliffWood at Canyon Crest.
