Wallis Ranch, an 806-home, eight-neighborhood community in Dublin, California, just celebrated its grand opening. And when one major door opens, so does another.

Trumark Companies revealed the Kindred House community space designs shortly after the grand opening of Wallis Ranch, but it’s more than just a pool with deck chairs.

“We’re seeing a trend of residential communities incorporating more communal spaces to encourage interaction between residents, and Wallis Ranch is no exception,” Peter Kiesecker, COO of Trumark Communities, said in a press release.

Trumark Communities worked with CDC Designs for the layout and environment in the sprawling 17,000 square foot space. Kiesecker explained how his team “spent countless hours visiting wineries, hotels and other attractions throughout Northern California to refine our design vision,” and it shows.

“The contemporary farmhouse design that you see today lends itself to the warm and welcoming environment of the Kindred House inspired by the distinct charm of the local countryside,” said Mark Higgins, a senior vice president for Trumark Communities.

A lounge area, designed by Gates Associates, features an open-air pavilion and other rooms that surround the 75-foot pool. Large TVs, a yoga patio, fitness center and water fountains add to the amenities, as does the barbecue pit and outdoor fireplace.

“We wanted to create a place that our residents would genuinely enjoy spending time at — where they bring their kids to play at the tot lot or to the pool in the summer, or just spend time curled up next to the fire pits in the evenings surrounded by their neighbors, who we hope will eventually become their friends,” Higgins said.

The Wallis Ranch master-planned community is located 40 miles east of San Francisco, which was one driving factor in the development .

Seven different companies are developing the eight neighborhoods in the community.

Riverton will be developed by KB Homes. These townhome-style condo homes offer 1,514 to 2,160 square feet and two- to four-bedroom options for sale in the high $700,000 range.

The Fielding community is developed by Trumark Homes, with homes starting in the high $900,000 range. These are single-family homes offering 1,809 to 2,285 square feet.

Taylor Morrison is developing the four- to six-bedroom homes in Ivy Oak. These single-family homes start selling in the $1.1 million range.

Pulte Homes is developing the Citron neighborhood, which favors the sub-million, single-family buyer. These homes offer 1,975 to 3,083 square feet with three- to five-bedroom options and start in the low $900,000 range.

Driftsong will be developed by Warmington Residential. These three- to four-bedroom homes start slightly above $1 million. Warmington is also developing Trestle, which will have courtyard-style attached homes reaching 2,206 square feet. Trestle homes have not yet been priced on the website.

The Barnwell and Bridgecroft neighborhoods will be developed by D.R. Horton and Emerald Homes. The Barnwell caps out at 3,995 square feet, starting at $3 million. The Bridgecroft steps the square footage up to 4,317 and starts at $1.4 million.
