LAKE ELSINORE – The Roberson family’s dream of home ownership was a long journey with some hurdles along the way, but they remained calm, positive and focused on their goal. As a veteran, there were specific benefits available to Dave Roberson that made it easy to work with Pardee Homes.

The Veterans Affairs program allowed the Robersons to reserve their home initially for just $500. Pardee Homes Inland Empire also offers qualified military personnel and veterans $3,000 toward options and or closing costs through their “Our Heroes Program” and prospective buyers eligible for a VA loan pay no closing costs.

“Pardee never gave up on us,” Roberson said. “It got tough several times and came down to the wire where they had to make a decision to put the house back on the market or not, but they didn’t. We reached our milestones in the process and even had things that were not planned for happen that made the already tough journey even rougher. We’re very grateful to Pardee Homes for standing by us every step of the way and making our dream a reality.”

The Robersons started their journey to purchase a home at Vantage at Westridge in the master-planned community of Canyon Hills in July 2016. They were looking for something affordable but of high quality and were among the first buyers to join the interest list.

“We wanted a place where our family could be a family,” labor and delivery nurse Lorraine Roberson said, “Our priority was finding the right environment and a place where our kids can be safe. We also love the views and are excited about Summit Park, which is opening soon. I will definitely tell my friends and co-workers about Pardee’s assistance program for members of the health care and public service communities.”

Vantage includes some of the largest home sites at the higher terraces in the gated Westridge community. Homes feature Spanish, French country, Northern Italian and classical architecture with up to five bedrooms, three bathrooms and two to three-bay garages. There are three floor plans, all with lofts and options for covered patios, decks and spa showers in the master bath. Square footage ranges from approximately 2,539 to 2,883 square feet. Pricing is from the high $300,000s.

The Roberson family bought the Plan 3 floor plan with a spacious great room and separate dining room. The full bedroom and bathroom downstairs is ideal for use as Dave Roberson’s home office, and the upstairs loft allows plenty of zoned space for the entire family. They’re thrilled to have an extra big backyard for their three active young boys to play.

Like all new homes built by Pardee Homes, Vantage at Westridge includes the company’s LivingSmart package of standard and optional features that increases energy-efficiency, saves water, saves money and contributes to the homeowners’ long-term peace of mind. Among the standards are Delta WaterSense-labeled faucets that cut water usage while maintaining desired water pressure, a General Electric Energy Star dishwasher, LED lighting in select recessed cans, a tankless water heater and a convenient recycling center in the kitchen. Optional LivingSmart features include Wi-Fi thermostats, a central vacuum system, electric car charging station and SunPower solar electric power system.

Vantage at Westridge is conveniently located along Railroad Canyon Road at the entrance to the master-planned community and offers easy access to Interstate 15, convenient shopping at nearby Canyon Hills Marketplace
and extensive recreational opportunities throughout the area. Westridge offers a gated, view-oriented setting, plus the added benefits of a great master-planned community, and Summit Park, slated to open this spring, features a combination lap, wading and beach entry pool, spa, showers, tot lot, picnic tables and barbecues, fire pit and
basketball court.
