August Move-Ins Set for Modern, Detached Single Family Homes

Vitae by Planet Home Living, a new community of 20 detached single-family homes offering two and three stories of modern living, have begun pre-sales with move-ins and a model grand opening slated for August. The interest list for Vitae, a development of new modern homes in Costa Mesa, is more than 150 homebuyers and growing.

Designed with the latest in energy efficiency and smart home technology, Vitae boasts standard features such as a Ring doorbell, Kevo keyless entry, Nest thermostat, USB port outlets, a garage door that can be opened from your phone, pre-wiring for EVC and solar panels, Low-E energy efficient windows, and more.

Vitae’s two floorplans range from 1,620 to 1,707 square feet and offer two and three bedrooms, private yards and attached two car garages. The homes feature sleek and refined architecture with contemporary finishes such as quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, modern pendant lighting, smooth drywall, and brushed nickel hardware and levers throughout. Prices start in the $790,000s to mid $800,000s.

“Vitae is designed for today’s savvy homebuyer, who wants a smart home, with energy efficient features, modern, designer touches and a great location,” said Sean Casey of Villa Real Estate, who along with his wife Lisa, are exclusive agents for the new community. “This is a unique opportunity to own a new, single family home in a desirable area with great walkability. And you won’t just have a private yard, you’ll actually own the land, as these are not condominium homes.”

Vitae is recognized with a Walk Score of 87, the highest Walk Score of all new homes selling in Costa Mesa. Based on data collected from the 87 is just 3 points shy of what Walk Score defines as a Walker’s Paradise where day to day life can be accomplished on foot without having to get in a car. According to Redfin’s announcement in March 2017, Orange County is one of the only cities where it won’t cost homeowners more to buy a home in a pedestrian friendly neighborhood.

Michael Marini, CEO of Planet Home Living, experts in thoughtful and well-designed small-lot living, says, “The green and tech features of Vitae, combined with the great location, is important to new home buyers, especially in Southern California. Our focus is to give today’s buyers a single-family home that perfectly suits their lifestyle, and Costa Mesa is ideal for this type of development.”

Designed by international award-winning KTGY Architecture + Planning, Vitae is Planet Home Living’s newest development in Orange County. The two companies have partnered on several successful small-lot communities around Greater Los Angeles. KTGY has more than 900 homes in various stages of construction developed under the Los Angeles Small Lot Ordinance, which it helped to formulate with the City of Los Angeles. Planet Home Living communities have proven to sell out within weeks of the grand opening.

VIP Tours of the community are available by appointment to those on the interest list. The models will open in August. To find out more about Vitae, or to join the interest list and schedule a tour, please visit or call Sean Casey of Villa Real Estate at 949 689 2498.
