    "Big Sky has been thoughtfully designed to showcase large one- and
two-story, single-family detached homes within Audie Murphy Ranch and
today's special event is a great way for guests to personally explore the
professionally decorated and furnished models on display in a leisurely,
relaxed setting," said Rocky Tracy, Vice President of Sales for
Brookfield Homes. "Visitors and prospective homebuyers are also
encouraged to spend time getting to know the members of the sales team,
who can address any questions they may have regarding this luxury
neighborhood and to also help them determine which Big Sky residence is
best suited for their family's individual lifestyle, priorities and
financial expectations. Finding just the right home is a tremendous
decision and the Model Grand Opening of Big Sky is that exciting first
step for families who want a spacious, elegant new Menifee home in a
community that fits their life."

    Offering a picturesque, elevated location within the naturally majestic
Audie Murphy Ranch community, Big Sky's new home designs range from
approximately 2,790 to 3,830 square feet of interior space, with three to
six bedrooms and 2.5 to 3.5 bathrooms and a variety of room options to
give families the flexibility they want. Three- and four-car oversized
garages are ideal for buyers who need extra room for vehicles, sports
equipment and tools. Generous lots afford homeowners the opportunity to
dine, entertain and relax outdoors. Prices are anticipated to start from
the low $300,000s.

    An optional first-floor living suite with a preference to add a
kitchenette is one of Big Sky's most innovative features. The living
suite is located within the house, yet separated from the main living
areas with a private side entrance, offering family members the privacy
of their own living area, while still staying connected to the household.
Additional highlights at Big Sky range from sizeable dining rooms to
large spaces that can be utilized for crafting and other activities.
Brookfield Homes appreciates that families require practical amenities
and has designed Big Sky with super laundry rooms, large closets and
plenty of storage space for toys and holiday decorations. Big Sky's
desirable location will place residents within close proximity to local
conveniences, including the Menifee Countryside Market and the Menifee
Town Center.

    Audie Murphy Ranch is a new master-planned community set amidst 1,100
rolling acres of homes, parks and timeless beauty. Surrounded by
magnificent trees and century-old rock formations, rugged silhouettes of
the San Jacinto and San Bernardino mountains provide a majestic backdrop
to this special destination. Under development by Brookfield Residential,
the master plan community provides a variety of new home neighborhoods
for classic family living. Bordering an ecological preserve, Salt Creek
is within the center of Audie Murphy Ranch, while miles of meandering
trails and paseos link residents to community amenities. Three planned
public parks including an 11-acre, future sports park will provide an
abundance of recreational opportunities, including a baseball and soccer
field, basketball courts, tennis courts, playgrounds and picnic areas
with lighting. There's even a future skateboard park and proposed dog
park for the family pet. The private recreational center will be the
centerpiece of community fun. Once completed, residents will enjoy a
swimming pool, spa, children's pool, barbecues, picnic areas, playgrounds
and a 3,500 square foot recreation building for special events. Students
of all ages have access to a great education under the Menifee Union
School District and Perris Union High School District, as well as charter
school opportunities. The community's location near the I-15 and I-215
freeways offers convenient access to business and leisure from San Diego
to San Bernardino. For more details, please visit
