Vineyard Village on McMurray Road in Buellton recently celebrated its grand opening, showing off eight fully furnished model homes as examples of each of the eight plans available at the 155-condominium complex.

Visitors were treated with lunch, face painting and raffle prizes at the event that included a ribbon cutting ceremony with Capital Pacific Homes and city officials.

“I love that it’s green,” said Buellton Mayor Holly Sierra. “The families here in Buellton have asked for us to strive for a greener community, and Vineyard Village fits with that vision, perfectly.”

Each home at Vineyard Village will be Cal-Green certified and utilize features to maximize sustainability and efficiency, including Low-E glazed windows, water-efficient fixtures, “cool roof” attics, LED lighting fixtures, high-efficiency heating and ventilation systems and R-21 insulation.

The development is within walking distance of commercial areas, including the new Crossroads retail Center, and the city’s newest neighborhood park, which will be located just south of the complex.

The village is also adjacent to the Parks Plaza movie theater and Firestone Brewery & Restaurant.

“The model homes are great for helping potential residents visualize their life here,” said Gavin Moores, president of Capital Pacific Homes, which is developing the project. “They can see how their family would fit into the various layouts.”

The eight floor plans range from 1,300 to approximately 2,100 square feet, two to four bedrooms and two to three and a half bathrooms.

Visitors can also see the color, finish, appliance and landscaping options in the model homes, Moores said.
