5 Features that Make Irvine Pacific Homes Ideal for Entertaining

At-home brunches, game nights, dinner parties and milestone celebrations are all possibilities for those that love to entertain. If this sounds like you, a house that has the space to host friends is guaranteed to be at the top of your home buying checklist. Beyond the square footage of a house, however, there are certain aspects that make a home ideal for gatherings. Designed with entertaining in mind, here are five features that make Irvine Pacific homes perfect for socializing. 


Seamless Indoor and Outdoor Living

Each Irvine Pacific home boasts a Great Room that provides space for families and friends to gather together and enjoy each other’s company. Chef-inspired kitchens and inviting dining rooms gracefully transition into one another to create an ideal environment for socializing and an intuitively designed space for hosting. Building off of Irvine’s stunning beauty, a focal point of these free-flowing social spaces are the panoramic doors that seamlessly blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living. Located in stunning neighborhoods throughout the Villages of Irvine, including the Reserve and Groves at Orchard Hills, Portola Springs Village and Eastwood Village, these homes give way to brilliant community views. 


Room to Relax Outdoors

Providing the perfect setting for a barbecue or an al fresco dining experience, Irvine Pacific homes feature private outdoor living areas. Here, friends can gather together on sunny SoCal afternoons under an open-air trellis at Hillside, Bluffs or Highland in Portola Springs (which are optional in select floor ​​plans) surrounded by the picturesque landscape of Loma Ridge. For the night owl, stunning views of city lights can be admired from select homesites at Azul in the Groves. From conversations over after-dinner drinks to sharing dessert, the mature and lush landscaping of Azul makes for a sweet evening with friends. Those that enjoy tea parties or afternoon brunches will delight in the optional conservatory options at Fresco in the Reserve. With spacious kitchen islands and dining rooms, buffet breakfasts can be set up and enjoyed in the sunshine for an elevated and energetic morning. If evenings around the fire spark your interest, the optional fireplaces in select Ravello in the Reserve floor plans make these homes a perfect match.


Optional Lofts and Extra Space

From movie nights to game nights and children’s playrooms, Irvine Pacific homes offer flexible spaces to customize your home to fit your unique needs. Optional lofts are featured in various Irvine Pacific floor plans, including Hillside, Highland and Bluffs as well as Fiore, Azul and Cielo, the newest collection of homes in Portola Springs Village. These optional lofts are ideal for a second living room space for kids to watch their favorite movie upstairs, while the adults socialize. Downstairs dens in select floor plans, like Como in the Reserve, can also provide a TV room, craft room or sitting room for friends and family to spend time. For out-of-town guests, these flexible spaces can serve as multi-functional guest rooms, if necessary, making weekend events a breeze.

While Irvine Pacific homes are already built for entertaining, homeowners relish the ability to customize details to perfectly suit their hosting needs. For example, those who thrive on at-home dinner parties will love Ravello in the Reserve because it features walk-in pantries and optional prep kitchens fit for a chef. Home collections like Azul in Portola Springs include volume ceilings that allow extra light to flow through the house and create a vibrant open space, made even brighter with panoramic sliding glass doors that set the stage for entertaining both indoors and outdoors. To give homes a designer touch, experts at the Irvine Pacific Design Center are available to help homeowners make their space uniquely their own. There, Design Consultants and homeowners will review best-in-class materials and interior selections to create a color scheme, flooring and more that bring homes to life and make them the perfect backdrop for entertaining.
