Welcome to California: the third biggest state in the entire country only beat by Texas and Alaska. Everything here is wide and spacious, from the deluxe celebrity mansions, the super tall palm trees and even taller skyscrapers, to the long stretch of golden beaches on the west coast.

At Main Street Village, you get all the great spacious comforts and grand luxury of California with no hassle whatsoever.
Every apartment complex is voluminous and can even be customized with three different interior finishes to choose from; make it your own home rather than just an apartment you own. Both the bathrooms and the kitchens come with beautiful and sturdy granite countertops; tall wood cabinetry to store pots and pans, spices, cleaning supplies, or your stock of toothpaste and soap; low flow faucets to prevent overusing water and to conserve resources; and stone flooring for easy clean up as well as lovely elegance. In addition the bathrooms also have a large Roman bathtub for long, cozy bubble baths, dual-flush toilets with a lighter option to save water, a framed bathroom mirror, and a bathroom occupancy sensor so that way you don’t have to stumble around in the middle of the night looking for the light switch, nor do you have to worry about accidentally leaving the lights on and wasting energy. Energy Star Whirlpool appliances adorn the kitchen, tile backsplash colors the walls, saving both the environment and the energy bill, and the recessed kitchen lights give proper illumination while baking in the night.
The bedrooms are huge and are decorated with upgraded, earth friendly low VOC carpets, and all have equally large walk-in closets to fit almost everything that you have, such as your clothes, coats, shoes, and accessories. Also, every apartment comes with a wide balcony or patio, so you can put out your chair, kick back, and gaze at the famous golden sunsets or city lights. The options are nearly endless.

We were looking for more space without sacrificing style or sustainability. Our search was complete when we found our new home at Main Street Village luxury apartments in beautiful Irvine, California.
From the second you walk in the door, you feel at home. The spacious entryway has a closet perfect for storing coats (handy as there’s little opportunity to wear coats around here). There’s also a large utility room with a full-size washer and dryer and plenty of extra storage space for cleaning supplies and the like.
Continue on into the home and you’re in the open kitchen, with loads of counter space, an island that overlooks the living and dining areas and a number of cabinets for storage.
The two bedrooms off to one side of the apartment are huge, one with a walk-in closet. They share a bathroom, the perfect setup for my two daughters who value their own space but also like to share all the samples they collect at Sephora.
On the other side of the apartment is the master suite and It is a beautiful space. The roomy bedroom overlooks the patio and leads to a huge walk-in closet and master bath with a double vanity. My husband takes almost as much time as I do to get ready in the morning, so it’s handy not having to share one sink and small section of countertop.
This beautiful luxury apartment has everything we need to live comfortably and consciously. I love Main Street Villages’ commitment to our community and the world around us. Come see for yourself today!
