Lennar has announced the grand opening of Contessa, the newest collection of homes within the Harmony Grove Village master-planned community in Escondido, California.

"Harmony Grove Village offers the ideal mix of location and amenities," said Lennar San Diego Division President Bill Ostrem. "Contessa will make it easy to carve out a wonderful lifestyle here, in homes that are generously sized to accommodate the needs of growing families and the most active of residents."

Contessa offers four floor plans ranging from 2,952 to 3,465 square feet, with four to five bedrooms, three to four-and-a-half baths and three-bay tandem garages. The floor plans were designed for growing families, featuring spacious main living areas, large modern kitchens with walk-in pantries, first floor bedrooms and generous master suites.

California rooms with outdoor gas fireplaces and decks off of the master bedroom create additional areas to entertain and relax. Select floor plans at Contessa include bonus rooms that can be used for entertainment, office space or hobbies. All models offer a choice of professionally crafted Cottage, Farmhouse or Hill Country exteriors.

Every home at Contessa features Lennar's industry exclusive Everything's Included® approach to home buying, in which the home builder's most popular options and upgrades are built into the base price of the home. At Contessa, this includes stainless steel appliances, quartz kitchen countertops and the world's first Wi-Fi Certified Home Design™, ensuring robust wireless connectivity and featuring voice control by Alexa-enabled products and smart home products from trusted manufacturers like Ring, Honeywell, Schlage, Lutron, Ruckus and Sonos. Pricing begins in the mid $700,000s.

Residents at Contessa will enjoy life within the amenity-packed Harmony Grove Village master-planned community. Surrounded by rolling hills, groves and preserved open space, Harmony Grove Village spans seven community parks, two miles of scenic multi-use trails and The Grove pool and recreation area, complete with spa, barbeque area, fireplace and restrooms. Future phases at Harmony Grove Village will introduce a Village Center retail amenity, equestrian area and dog park.

The community is minutes from neighborhood shopping, dining and entertainment, and just a few miles from I-15, which connects Contessa to the vast attractions of greater San Diego including the San Diego Zoo, the famous California coastline and award-winning employment corridors.

Contessa is served by the Escondido Union School District, including Bernardo Elementary School, Del Dios Academy of Arts and Sciences and San Pasqual High School.
