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.
Amenities focus on promoting indoor/outdoor living and recreation and encourage interaction among residents as well as participation in onsite recreational, social and learning activities. A robust vegetable and community garden provides space for residents to grow their own fresh produce.
Jamboree’s onsite resident services are specifically tailored to meet the needs of Birch Hill residents. These programs include activities such as homework assistance and tutoring for young people, as well as community building activities for all residents. An onsite program coordinator assists residents in accessing local community services in the City of Brea.
