Van Daele Homes introduces another wrinkle in homebuilding with “Alterra” — Townhome-like interiors in condominium styled buildings.
It’s tough to classify this category. It’s not your typical cookie-cutter townhome or mid-rise condo complex. The closest development I can think of to this design is The Domain in Anaheim, which I felt was brilliantly-designed and seemed to have an answer to all the failed mid-rise condo projects in the area.
Alterra offers 4 floorpans and range from 1,101 square feet of living space to 1,898 square feet. Prices started at $477,990 at the time of my visit. HOA dues are expected to be $374 at build out with a special assessment of $727-$849 per year.
The Not-So-Good Features…
Overall, I believe this community offers a good buy for the location and offerings of the La Floresta community. Those looking for an alternative to the typical “cookie cutter living” would have walking access to new shopping and restaurants along with a pool center nearby.
