Top Spots to Watch the Big Game

by Shea Homes Arizona on January 26, 2018

Last Sunday was filled with last second stands and crushing defeats, but the results are in and the Big Game is fast approaching! Hosting a game day party is a time-honored tradition, and one that should not be taken lightly. Even if you don’t have a horse in the race this year, parties are a great time to show off your hosting skills. From spreads of American cuisine hand-bought from your local pizza joint to picking decorations and the perfect pigskin to toss around at halftime, there’s a lot to think about before the fateful February 4. Let us inspire you with a few of our favorite game-worthy spots in our Shea Homes models.

So what exactly makes a living space suitable for a football-loving crowd? You’ll need plenty of room for standing and cheering, plus a few good spots to sit and enjoy the world famous commercials. Shea Homes® has you covered like an All-Star cornerback.

Fabulous BasementThe basements at Latitude at Cantilena are ideal for football festivities. The spacious, airy room in this Latitude model has plenty of room to sit, watch, and munch. This is a fabulous spot to spend Sunday night cheering your team on.

Spacious CondoOur Vantage condo homes feature surprisingly spacious spaces and this living room is no exception. The inset fire feature will give your rowdy friends a touch of class, while the large glass windows allow guests to enjoy the crisp February air without missing a second of the game.

Sporty Den/Flex SpaceIf big blow-outs aren’t your style, keep things simple in this den from The Reserves in Gilbert. With plenty of screen space and billiards to keep you entertained during timeouts, fire up the grill, grab a bowl of chips and a few friends, and hunker down until the fireworks go off!

Cardinals Basement Fan CaveCheck out the ultimate “fan cave” in the basement of a model home in Peoria’s Vista Montaña II community. The theme? Arizona Cardinals. From oversized theater chairs, to framed jerseys, a football field carpet and the best of the Arizona Cardinals replaying on the huge projection TV, this room checks all the boxes for the ultimate fan experience.

Now it’s your turn to show off your favorite game day spot! Post a pic on Instagram and tag @sheahomesaz

It’s January in Arizona! While much of the country is buried under snow, we’re gearing up for some fun in the sun. When you live in a state that has some of the best weather in the country (most of the year, anyway), it makes perfect sense to choose a home designed to take full advantage of outdoor living. Here are a few of the latest popular new home features that let homeowners enjoy Arizona living to the fullest.

Courtyards
CourtyardsCourtyards add expanded living space, give your family more room to spread out, and provide multiple entertaining spaces for kids and adults. With the right furniture, a fireplace and maybe a stocked bar, you’ll find plenty of reasons to enjoy the great outdoors year-round.

Casitas, Ramadas and Cabanas
RamadasIf you like to entertain, casitas, ramadas and cabanas are great ways to transform your backyard into the ideal party spot. Throw in a flat-screen TV or two, and you can alternate between watching the big game and cooling off with a dip in the pool.

Putting Greens
Putting GreensWhy should you have to drive to a golf course or Top Golf to improve your game? With a backyard putting green, you can work on your stroke any time the urge strikes. If you have tweens or teens, this is a great way to get the kids off their phones and into some outdoor activity time.
