Birch Hills is a multi-award-winning, garden-style affordable housing community adjacent to the 18-hole Birch Hills Golf Course in Brea, CA. The energy-efficient property has Spanish-influence architecture and a market-rate quality look and feel with the added value of significant green space and exceptional amenities. The eight three-story buildings and spacious recreation center are arranged around central courtyards and linked by tree-lined, pedestrian-friendly landscaped walks. The Birch Hills Golf Course – recently renovated by Chevron Land and Development – offers the public surrounding green belts, a driving range, future community center, and numerous mature specimen trees for the neighborhood.
