Both models offer 3 bedrooms plus loft or an optional 4th bedroom, 2.5 baths, and 2-car attached garages with private fenced yards (yards are not improved). Homeowners have 6 months to submit plans for improving their backyards, and 9 months to complete them.


Currently the pricing ranges from $662,900 to $716,990 (subject to change and availability). The Acacia homes are pre-wired for whole-house automation if buyers wish, and also come with a Ring video doorbell.


Residents at The Preserve will enjoy a private recreation complex (SEE PHOTO BELOW) with a fitness center, pool, spa, BBQs, and seating areas.


The Preserve will also provide abundant open space (over half of the total 156 acres), walking paths, and playgrounds. Children will attend the Carlsbad Unified Schools (i.e., Hope Elementary, Calavera Hills Middle and either of the 2 Carlsbad high schools).

Please read the 6 things buyers must know about buying new construction. You might be surprised how it differs from buying a resale home, and there are important differences, especially with regard to buyer representation.


Having buyer representation with you when you first see the community is important or you will be represented by the sale rep who works for the builder, not you!
