Woodbridge Pacific Group’s University Park Neighborhood Beckons Buyers to Palm Desert

February 16, 2024

Rebecca Hardin | Open Line

Peak season in California’s desert is here, with the ease of indoor/outdoor enjoyment, and casual, walkable ways to tap the arts, culture, food and lifestyle that make this region so desirable.  For new-home shoppers seeking premium value, Verve at University Park by Woodbridge Pacific Group (WPG) is an alluring choice.

At Verve, shoppers can explore 4 two-story plans that provide 1,871 to 2,490 square feet of living space in pleasingly varied layouts. These designs yield up to 5 bedrooms and up to 4.5 baths, and every home includes a 2-car attached garage.

Striking Architecture—Modern Spanish, Boutique and Contemporary styles define Verve’s exterior architecture. Enriched detailing strengthens arrival identity, while rear location for all garages creates classic streetscapes—plus optimal ease from your car to drop zones and kitchens.

Versatile Social Spaces—Porch entries for all homes open to expansive, light-filled layouts, with through-plan views to kitchen, seating and dining. Private side courts highlight the social zone, and two plans feature direct access from entry to these charming outdoor spaces.

Luxurious Retreats—Addressing diverse preferences, Verve’s retreat spaces provide 3 to 5 bedrooms and 2.5 to 4 baths, with Plan 3’s second primary suite situated downstairs, and a downstairs bed/bath also adding flexibility to Plan 2.

Primary suites are optimally secluded from social areas and secondary bedrooms, and feature spa bath designs, walk-in wardrobes and spacious bedchambers.

Design highlights—Per plan enrichments include loft spaces, hobby/flex room, cabana entry, dining alcove, expanded dining and more. WPG also offers personalizing opportunities for Verve designs.

Premium Lifestyle—Well situated in University Park, Verve and WPG’s companion neighborhoods are part of an alluring lifestyle setting in Palm Desert. University Park is near the 10 Freeway, and the intersection of Gerald Ford Drive and Portola Road offers easy access to WPG’s Nova, Verve and Esprit neighborhoods.

Area work centers are within easy reach, including Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage. Abundant retail and dining choices are also convenient, and so are hiking trails and other recreational options. Signature destinations include El Paseo Shopping District and the new Acrisure Arena, which hosts sports and entertainment events. 

For family buyers, strong schools are another plus. The Desert Sands Unified School District and Palm Springs Unified serve University Park with quality schools for K-12.

Close To Home—Leisure fun is close at hand in nearby parks that include one dog park and one with a covered play area, basketball court and lawn. Additional choices await at The Grove, the master plan’s amenity center, which is slated for a spring opening.  Here, residents can enjoy a resort pool, a lap pool and a kiddie pool. A shaded playground, pickleball court, a stage area, lawn areas for events and games, a firepit and a BBQ area add to enticing leisure time venues.
