Docks under construction at Seabridge master plan in Channel Islands Harbor August 27, 2006

Major developments continue to unfold at Seabridge in the Channel Islands Harbor, where residents will soon have the opportunity to boat across from gated islands to popular shops and restaurants at the waterfront promenade. With the water rising in the channel and the public marina docks under construction, this one-of-a-kind community by D.R. Horton is quickly taking shape amid tremendous excitement.

"The essence of Seabridge is coastal living and the ongoing development of the docks highlights the true spirit of this environment," said Mark Higgins, vice president of sales and marketing for D.R. Horton. "Residents will be able to leisurely boat across from the community's gated islands to shopping amenities that are planned to include Vons supermarket, Duffy Boats, Spa & Salon and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf."

A landmark community that encompasses 135 acres, Seabridge is the opportunity of a lifetime. Southern Californians who appreciate superb value, architectural style and an outstanding location have made Seabridge the fastest-selling community in Oxnard and Ventura. As homebuyers discover this unrivaled opportunity for a remarkable address near the water's edge, current neighborhoods are selling quickly and interest is growing for the upcoming live-work residences of Port 121.

Two of the community's most desirable neighborhoods include the attached homes of Port Marluna, which showcase convenient mainland locations and Port Meridian, a single-family collection that offers a coveted island setting, some with private boat docks.

Port Marluna presents bright and charming single-level flats that range from approximately 1,720 square feet to 2,015 square feet of space, with two to three bedrooms and two and one-half baths. An idyllic location near the village further enhances its appeal.

The elegant designs of Port Meridian showcase Spanish, Craftsman and Bungalow architectural styles that highlight classic living along the water. Two-story residences range from approximately 2,653 square feet to 2,868 square feet of interior space, with three to five bedrooms, two and one-half to three baths and two-car garages.

During a visit, guests also can learn more about the community's additional collections that highlight its relaxed yet prestigious appeal. Port Province and Port Haviland offer designs that range from approximately 3,060 square feet to 3,748 square feet, with three to four bedrooms and three baths to four and one-half baths. The attached live/work designs at Port 121 offer mainland village locations and range from approximately 912 square feet to 1,866 square feet, with one to two bedrooms and one to two baths. Prices at Seabridge currently start from the high $500,000s.

Three signature bridges will span the marina and the channels, linking the gated islands and village together so that island residents can stroll over to village shops and restaurants; mainland homeowners can cross over to utilize the community's private recreation. One of the bridges also has been planned to exclusively accommodate pedestrian traffic.

D.R. Horton understands that homebuyers deserve opportunities that enrich their lives on every level and created Seabridge for Southern Californians who want to spend their leisure time outdoors in a breathtaking environment. The foundation of this master plan is its great location and thoughtful development, which will cater to boating enthusiasts as well as young families. For those who imagine spending their weekends out on the water, lounging by the pool, taking a special class at the fitness center or learning how to sail, it will all be possible.

The Coral Island clubhouse, which will offer approximately 6,300 square feet of space in a park-like setting, currently is planned to include a swimming pool, spa and sundecks, an entry tower reception area, clubhouse, courtyards and fitness rooms. Public amenities will include the new waterfront promenade marina village, which will have a scenic plaza, shops, dining and a mini-amphitheater with bay-view seating. A bay-front public marina will have guest boat slips that can accommodate a variety of watercraft. Service-oriented businesses and a proposed Channel Islands Harbor Patrol station will complete the community's self-sufficient, well-rounded surroundings.
