Stonebrae Country Club, Bay Area’s Most Elegant Gated Community Opens Today

New East Bay Hills Community Features Championship 18-Hole Golf Course, Elegant Country Club, State-of-the-Art Homes and Elementary School

HAYWARD, Calif. — After years of anticipation, the East Bay’s most luxurious country club community, Stonebrae, has opened its doors to new homeowners. The kickoff Gala Grand Opening Event is being held on Saturday, February 10, 2007.

Along the highest ridgeline of the East Bay hills, Stonebrae Country Club boasts a lifestyle like no other. This private, gated community provides a distinguished class of luxury homes, a sprawling 18-hole championship golf course and a gorgeous clubhouse complex featuring unparalleled dining, fitness and health facilities.

Stonebrae also created a new on-site elementary school built in partnership with the Hayward Unified School District and 1,200 acres of regional open space dedicated to the East Bay Regional Park District (EBRPD).

“Living at Stonebrae is like staying at a luxury resort,” said Steve Miller, Executive Director. “We are thrilled that the public can finally visit this extraordinary project and see for themselves what a special and elegant lifestyle Stonebrae offers.”

Stonebrae’s first release is comprised of three distinctive villages, each built by one of the nation’s most illustrious residential developers: Carrick Village by Toll Brothers, Montrose Village by Warmington Homes California and Stirling Village by Standard Pacific Homes. Stonebrae will ultimately consist of approximately 580 homes including the best custom housing ever developed.
