Life on the Water at Valencia Bridgeport

I woke up early this morning just to watch the sunrise on the water. I am amazed at how vibrant the colors are during the transition between dark and light.

There is a light chill in the air as I listen to the sounds of the wildlife around the lake. The birds are chattering away as they must be planning their day

The sunrise doesn’t care if we watch it or not. It will keep on being beautiful, even if no one bothers to look at it. What a wonderful experience to watch the world wake up.

The community of Valencia Bridgeport has embraced a nautical theme creating charming homes around a picturesque 15 acre lake. It creates a lifestyle unlike any other Valencia community.

Plan an afternoon escape in a romantic rowboat. Or enjoy the many miles of Biking and Walking paths around the lake.

Bridgeport is an intimate village where you can walk nearly anyplace you want to go. A lakefront Paseo will lead you to the school, park, pool and community center. It is also connected to the 25 mile Valencia Paseo system where you can walk or bike to town center.

Two miles of shoreline Paseos also follow a river trail system through a nature preserve that protects the fragile wetlands. You might hear the croak of a frog or a family of ducks. Bridgeport is home to all sorts of families – people, as well as wildlife.

The private Lake Club is Valencia’s largest and most comprehensive community center, open only to Bridgeport residents. The 7,000 square foot building wraps around the scenic courtyard and features a banquet hall that can seat up to 200 people overlooking the lake. Imagine planning your next wedding, birthday or social event at this lake front facility. Whatever the occasion, the waters of the lake reflect the joy of Bridgeport living.

The neighborhoods of Bridgeport offer a distinct living experience. Some homes enjoy lakefront addresses, while others are oriented to maximize views of the lake. Watch the 4th of July fireworks from your deck that are presented every year at town center.

You can even ride your bike to work and leave your car at home.

Yet every Bridgeport resident is able to take advantage of the numerous recreational, retail and employment opportunities of the surrounding master-planned community of Valencia.

Valencia Bridgeport is a wonderful place to call home.

The Valencia Summit Lifestyle

The first rays of sunlight stretch across the clear blue morning sky. From atop the Valencia Summit, you see lights flicker and fade as the community awakens below you. And you wonder how you could of lived anywhere else.

I took a walk this morning in the 80 acre nature park on the Valencia Summit. The sun was shining, the birds were singing and I was amazed at all of the wildlife. Hawks, Rabbits, Squirrels and even an occasional Road Runner. The crowded city was forgotten and I felt I was in the country.

The regular crowd was out walking too. People with their dogs, children, Seniors and the fitness groups.

The Valencia Summit was originally the “Beverly Hills” of Valencia. Even though it was developed in the 80’s, it is still the best location in town. Five minutes from the freeway and within walking distance of the Valencia mall, but still an “Island in the Sky’ as far as being a special place.

The Valencia “Paseo” (pathways) system hooks up all of Valencia with walking pathways of scenic beauty without ever having to cross a street. Click here for a copy of the Valencia Paseo map.

Swimming pools, Tennis Courts and club house are just some of the amenities set in an area of scenic beauty. The low HOA fees of central Valencia have been known to offer the most at the least price.

The homes are a mixture of different styles;

The San Marino Collection is a touch of Mediterranean romance.  Homes with red tile roofs, high ceilings, arched openings and interior Atriums.

The Chelsea Collection artfully blends traditional country ambiance with new style architecture. Vaulted ceilings, skylights, open rooms, glass enclosed wood fireplaces and three gar garages welcome’s you home to your country cottage on the Summit.

The Windermere Collection have been described as Elegant, Stately and sophisticated. As the largest homes on the Summit, they were created to enhance your enjoyment of life’s pleasures.

The Stratford Collection is a gated community of large townhomes set on a picturesque hilltop overlooking the Oak studded nature park.

Living on the Summit, among the scenic splendor of lush park lands and the spectacular views of the Oak studded arroyos, is a lifestyle that can’t be beat
