I was invited to the VIP Preview Event of the Orchard Park in San Jose and was compensated for this post. Thoughts are my own.
Touring the #OrchardParkSJ in San Jose, CA. Very nice neighborhood with lots of establishments within a 5-min drive. #BlogginMamas
Are you in the market for a new home? Or perhaps you just want to look around and see your options in case you decide to actually buy a new home for you and your family? Looking for a new home to buy may be a bit stressful because of the many things you’ll have to consider — location, design, size, amenities, security, and all the individual preferences you may have.
Orchard Park, a new home community in the Berryessa District, offers something never before seen in this area of San Jose, and designers have worked hard to create floor-plan designs that will fit the various lifestyles of today’s buyers.
I can imagine my family relaxing in this space… #OrchardParkSJ @TheNewHomeCo #blogginmamas
Created by The New Home Company, the Orchard Park master plan was conceptualized to help activate and encourage a walkable lifestyle for its residents. Paths and walkways seamlessly integrate the community to the surrounding amenities and help ensure that you can easily move by foot or bike between their home and the surrounding shopping, job centers, public transit and parks.
Having lived in this area for the past 5 years (I live 8 minutes away from Orchard Park!), I can say that this is a prime location. The Orchard Park is just across the San Jose Municipal Golf Course so you and your family can go to the driving range anytime you have a few minutes of free time! The Brokaw Commons is also just a few minutes’ walk so you’ll have a lot of restaurants to choose from when you can’t cook at home.
Probably the best "his and hers" sink design I've ever seen! I want!!! #OrchardParkSJ @thenewhomeco #blogginmamas
Some establishments within walking distance from the Orchard Park are as follows: FedEx, UPS, Starbucks, Five Guys, Noah’s Bagels, McDonald’s, Panda Express, SF Supermarket, AAA, Yogurtland, Pieology, Whispers, and a lot more! Costco, USPS and even the San Jose Airport are also approximately a 10-minute (or 15 if there’s heavy traffic) drive.
The community includes 239 new homes in 3 neighborhoods — each comprised of distinct home designs — TOWNS, COURTS and FLATS. Orchard Park also includes numerous landscaped parks and open spaces, a promenade and a resident’s clubhouse, all designed to enhance the living experience for residents.
Unique to a new-home community, The New Home Company engaged a Feng Shui master to consult on the land plan and product design to ensure the community achieved a true north/south orientation and embraced other guiding principles. A “Ming Tong” ceremony was recently held on site, ensuring good fortune to those choosing to live at Orchard Park.
Each model home I saw had an open space design and I loved it! Probably because the apartment we’re renting right now is so compartmentalized that every area and room looks so small. The open design of the kitchen, dining and living rooms made me feel more relaxed. It seemed like I had more room to breathe in this kind of setup.
I was able to see only 4 of the model homes. They have 9 that are open for anyone who would like to visit, and I must say I want to go back just to imagine that I were living there! I just can’t help but love the many storage spaces they have in the model kitchens, the huge walk-in closets in the model bedrooms, and the gorgeous “his and hers” sink in one of the “Courts”!
But of course, it won’t be enough to just describe everything in words and two dimensional photos. You have to actually see the model units to really appreciate the beauty in the structure and design of these homes! And here’s the perfect opportunity!
