Grand Opening of New Neighborhood at Briar Creek, Lompac

On Saturday, February 15, Briar Creek in Lompoc celebrates the Grand Opening of a new neighborhood of easy-living, single-family homes. Decorated model homes at The Courtyards at Briar Creek will open to the general public at noon on Saturday.

The Courtyards at Briar Creek features attractive and livable 3 and 4 bedroom homes ranging from 1,460 to 1,658 square feet. All homes at The Courtyards offer open, airy living spaces. Two of the three floor plans feature a generously sized second floor loft – an ideal space for a home office, TV room, or children’s play area. Courtyards homes are priced from the upper $200,000s.

The Courtyards homes offer a broad array of features and amentities usually found in much more expensive homes – including granite slab kitchen counter tops; upgraded ceramic tile in entry, kitchen, laundry and baths; two-car garages; upgraded Shaker-style cabinetry; General Electric appliances in stainless steel and many energy-saving features.

“These new homes are a wonderful complement to the Briar Creek community,” stated Diana Kolec, Regional Sales Manager for Robbins Reed Incorporated, builder of Briar Creek. “The Courtyards homes are very affordable and are close to Vandenberg Air Force Base and all of Lompoc’s shopping, dining and great businesses. And since these are new homes, they include so many great energy-efficient features like tankless water heaters, low-E windows and radiant barrier roof sheathing that will keep the homes cooler in the summer.”

Starting on Saturday, February 15, decorated models are open from Sunday through Tuesday from 11 am to 5 pm, and are closed Wednesday and Thursday. The sales center and models are located at 1205 Meridian Way, Lompoc. Take W. Central to Western Avenue and follow the signs For more information, call (805) 737-7377 or visit
