Last week, Arista at The Crosby at Rancho Santa Fe was named San Diego’s best new detached community during ceremonies presented by the Building Industry Association (BIA) of San Diego County. This top honor is the latest in a 30-year history of Davidson’s Grand Award winners, which began in 1980 with Davidson’s Leucadia Village. Other Grand Award winners for Davidson include Pointe Del Mar, Blackhorse La Jolla, Mt. Woodson, Cielo and Davidson at Santaluz.
Arista at the Crosby was just the most recent new home community to bring design acclaim to the Del Mar-based homebuilder. Published in 2005 in the San Diego Union-Tribune, this profile of Bill Davidson puts this achievement into perspective:
“No San Diego-area builder has won more design awards from peers within the industry for its homes than has his Del Mar-based Davidson Communities, recognition that has extended to numerous national honors as well. In 24 years, Davidson has taken home the local building industry's annual Grand SAM award a record 11 times. In Hollywood, that would be like Clint Eastwood walking off with the Oscar for best film at nearly half the Academy Awards held over the past quarter century.”
Arista at the Crosby was presented with “Best Community” honors at the 2012 Icon awards, which recognized the best and brightest in the local real estate community. This year’s Icon awards attracted 78 eligible project entries, an increase of 15 percent over last year.
Davidson’s Plan 1 at Arista also won an Icon award for Best Interior Design in the Single Family Homes category, honoring the work of Del Mar-based Design Line Interiors.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by professionals from the building industry who truly understand what it takes to create a project like this,” said Bill Davidson, president of Davidson Communities. “Arista’s success is a combination of terrific architecture, highly functional floor plans, and an interior design that helps our customers visualize how they could live in the space.”
Arista’s three floorplans were designed with a downstairs master living suite and the option for multiple master suites upstairs. Homes range from 2,926 to 3,593 square feet with up to five bedrooms and five baths. Pricing ranges from the high $800,000s.
“Arista really connects with home buyers because these plans are so flexible,” said Davidson. “The possibilities for multiple master bedroom suites, upstairs and down, can accommodate all kinds of lifestyle preferences including a private office, a returning child, or an elderly parent.”
Located on the 1st fairway of the Crosby National Golf Course, Arista offers resort-style options including table-sized gourmet kitchen islands that range up to 14’ long, with seating for 10. Master suites showcase Davidson’s exclusive “Vintage” fixtures, an exclusive line of bathroom hardware created by Bill Davidson and manufactured in Carlsbad.
