January 23, 2017
January 23, 2017 – International award-winning firm KTGY Architecture + Planning is pleased to announce that Muir Pointe featuring 144 single-family homes within two neighborhoods, The Cove and The Tides, will be the newest residential community to open at the 106-acre Bayside master-planned community in the city of Hercules, Calif. Built by Taylor Morrison, a leading national homebuilder and developer, and designed by KTGY, Muir Pointe’s waterfront location offers easy access to freeways and public transportation and provides a convenient commute to major employment centers in the San Francisco Bay Area. Models for the new community are currently under construction and are slated to open in February 2017.
Situated on the beautiful San Pablo Bay and surrounded by parks and natural open spaces, Muir Pointe offers a timeless collection of five highly customizable home designs to choose from in a variety of architectural styles. Muir Pointe features a stunning all-new collection of two- and three-story homes ranging in size from 2,017 to 2,651 square feet with three to four bedrooms, two-and-one-half to four bathrooms and a two-car garage.
The new homes of Muir Pointe are designed to capture the charm and appeal of the historic neighborhoods in the area. Most of the homes will feature large decks or porches allowing the perfect blend of indoor and outdoor living. The plans offer traditional first-floor living and dedicated bedroom suites, perfect for guests or multi-generational families. The three-story homes are ideally situated to take advantage of Bay views with a double balcony, great rooms, and master bedrooms situated to the front. Some of the community amenities include children’s play area, soccer field, picnic and community garden areas and outdoor exercise area.
“THE NEW HOMES OF MUIR POINTE ENCAPSULATE ALL THAT WE HAVE LEARNED FROM YEARS OF DEVOTION TO DEVELOPING THE CHARM AND APPEAL OF CENTRAL HERCULES,” SAID KTGY CHAIRMAN JILL WILLIAMS, AIA. “WE WALKED THE EXISTING NEIGHBORHOODS WITH THE CITY’S DESIGN REVIEW LEADERS AND COLLABORATED ON HOW TO BUILD UPON THE CITY’S SUCCESS.”
Williams adds, “Muir Pointe was a great opportunity to merge historical references with energy efficient, current design trends. The new homes are one more step forward to achieving the City of Hercules’ vision for a vibrant TOD.”
