Flair is situated in Miralon, a unique new “agri-hood” by Freehold Communities that also took multiple Gold Nugget honors. “Mid Century aesthetics and Miralon location offer our buyers an enticing enclave close to downtown Palm Springs,” said WPG Principal Todd Cunningham. “Recognition in this prestigious competition adds to our pride in Flair, and we thank the judges for these gratifying honors.”
The Gold Nugget Awards recognize those who improve our communities through exceptional concepts in design, planning and development. Homebuilding’s oldest and most prestigious competition, the 58th annual program drew more than 600 entrants from throughout the U.S. and internationally. See www.goldnuggetawards.com.
Gold Nugget judges had high praise for Flair: “…this collection caters to locals with mid- century aesthetics both inside and out. The flat-roof façades of each of the five designs utilize stucco, concrete, and subtle color, and we enjoyed the variations of the floor plans and elevations that all complement each other very well. Located in a new agri-hood with thousands of olive trees, the homes orient to the mountain vistas and each incorporates their own indoor-outdoor living spaces for true upscale ambience….”
WPG reports that desert home shoppers embraced Flair immediately, with speedy sales of Flair’s 44 grand opening homes prompting a second Flair collection at Miralon. “We thank our outstanding design/build team for our Gold Nugget honors and for Flair’s amazing success,” said Cunningham. “We also thank Freehold for making Flair a key part of Miralon’s debut.”
Flair was designed by Hannouche Architects, with model interiors created by Chameleon Design. Site planning was by Robert Hidey Architects; the civil engineer was MSA Consulting, Inc. and model home landscaping was by Professional Design Associates.
Merit and Grand Award winners were celebrated June 16 in a virtual celebration. The awards are sponsored by PCBC, one of the nation’s largest trade show and conference for real estate professionals. www.pcbc.com.
Flair is the first new home collection of Miralon, Freehold’s transformation of a former golf course into one of the nation’s largest new “agri-hoods, which integrate new homes with diverse agricultural uses and community amenities. Miralon’s Gold Nugget honors included Master Planned Community of the Year and Grand Awards for Community Landscape Architecture, Community Site Plan and Community Pivot, for thoughtful revision of the previous golf course plan. The Club earned a Merit as Community Amenity.
Flair is situated to optimize views to the San Jacinto Mountains, and all designs offer single-level living; one includes a second level bedroom, bath and loft. Ideal for a casual, hospitable lifestyle, loggias, courtyards and patios enrich open, light-filled gathering spaces and the homes’ luxurious master suites.
About 5 minutes from downtown Palm Springs, Flair residents are within easy reach of dining, retail and entertainment. Within Miralon, they can enjoy The Club, which features outdoor recreation space, pools, spa, health club, coffee bar, full-service bar and lounge and a demonstration kitchen. Walking trails, olive and citrus groves, parks, dog parks and community gardens further highlight the Miralon lifestyle.
“Flair shares the excellence WPG’s homebuyers value at The QUE at Vibe and Skye in Palm Springs; and at Monterra, Citrine and Topaz in La Quinta,” said Cunningham. We are proud to see Flair take its place among these distinctive neighborhoods.”
