AIA award winning architect Doug Ewing FAIA has teamed up with Mi Casa Property on the Villas at Bear Creek Country Club, a new single-family subdivision in the Inland Empire.

The project sits in the foothills of Murrieta and overlooks the Country Club and its famous Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, known for its rolling hills, lakes and natural terrain.

The Villas consist of eight townhome-style dwellings with alternating floor plans. Each homes includes 2,180 to 2,334 square feet of open living space, including three bedrooms, a downstairs master suite, 2.5 bathrooms, a great room with fireplace, separate formal dining room, private patio, master suite, and attached two-car garage. The Villa One floorplan also includes a loft, while the Villa Two floorplan contains a bonus room and den.

Homeowners at the Villas will also have opportunities to purchase membership packages for the adjacent Bear Creek Country Club. Features include the aforementioned five-star private golf course, a fitness center, a weight room, an Olympic-size pool, multiple tennis courts and a variety of restaurants. The location is also just minutes away from Temecula, known for its winery and casino.

Each Doug Ewing-designed home includes high ceilings, a stately fireplace, ceramic tile flooring and wall-to-wall carpeting in great rooms and bedrooms. Likewise, all kitchens are stylishly appointed with granite slab countertops, stainless steel appliances, built-in convection ovens, over-the-range microwaves, built-in dishwashers and wine refrigerators.

Private master suites include dual walk-in closets, and bathrooms featuring granite slab countertops, an under-counter china sink and a walk-in shower.

Energy conservation was prioritized, and each home was constructed with dual-glazed vinyl windows, high efficiency furnace and air conditioning systems, extensive insulation and natural gas tankless water heaters.

Considering the space and amenities, prices are shockingly reasonable− especially from where this DTLA-based writer sits. Units start in the low $500s.
