Japanese builder Sekisui House handpicked Temecula to debut its first California development Sommers Bend by Shawood. There are seven floor plans (farm-housey, modern craftsman) and 57 homesites available, starting from $1.5 million. So far, construction on three homes have broken ground. 

With 800 patents and proprietary construction, the Sommers Bend homes are touted as fire-resistant and earthquake-resistant, while featuring custom elements like Bellburn ceramic tiles that defy fading, scratching, and essentially aging.  

“Our vision embraces an end-to-end ecosystem that celebrates the longevity of the relationship the buyer is meant to have with their home,” says Erin Willis, Sekisui House’s chief insights and marketing officer. 

In 1990, Shawood launched an R&D study exploring homes and happiness. As such, health, wellness, and lifestyle play a starring role. Sommers Bend homes feature air filtration, water purification, insulation and energy-efficient technology. Located in the heart of Temecula, there are eight miles of trails, a 21-acre sports complex for group instruction, multiple pools and family splash area, as well as BBQ areas and wine-focused activities.
