Grand Opening of Newest Shea Peoria Community – Aloravita

by Shea Homes Arizona on December 7, 2018

 

Mark your calendars, because Saturday, December 8th, 2018 is the official grand opening of Shea Homes® Arizona’s newest Peoria communities– Ascent and Emblem at Aloravita! Models are open and homesites are up for grabs; now is the time to pick the perfect spot for your new home. So, grab your friends and family and come see these stunning homes set in an innovative community in the heart of the Peoria – an ideal place for families who love to explore the outdoors.

“Peoria has a lot to offer buyers,” says Ken Peterson, VP of Sales and Marketing for Shea Homes Arizona. “With Lake Pleasant right up the road and tons of entertainment and dining options, it’s a great place for people who want an outgoing lifestyle, whatever their age.”Emblem

Shea is building across 29 acres at the northeast corner of 75th Avenue and Jomax. Nestled between panoramic Peoria Mountain Preserves and Thunderbird Conservation Park, the stunning landscape provides a natural backdrop to the 124 single family homes, which take cues from southwestern design to create a harmony between the man-made and natural elements.

Both Ascent and Emblem boast six unique floorplans. Ascent features plans from 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms up to 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, ranging from 1,968 square feet up to 3,062. Emblem sports homes from 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms up to 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, from 2,218 square feet to 3,505.

As a part of the Aloravita, you’ll find plenty to do around your new neighborhood. Filled with manicured parks, miles of walking and biking trails, and only a short distance from the West Wing Mountain Trail, residents will have everything they need to stay fit and have fun doing it.Emblem Kitchen and Great Room

Beyond the beauty of the Aloravita community, there is a lot to love in Peoria. For all you outdoor enthusiasts, there is perhaps no better place in the entire Valley. Spend the day at Lake Pleasant; boating, hiking, fishing, where classes like paddleboard yoga will keep you both entertained and physically fit. Sports fans will get their fill too, whether it’s swinging the sticks on the many award-winning golf courses around town, or drinking in the atmosphere when the Mariners and Padres come to town for Spring Training at the Peoria Sports Complex.

Once the 9th inning ends, step out into P83 Entertainment District. Here you’ll find boutique shopping mixed with unique culinary concepts and family-friendly fun. If the shopaholic in you isn’t satisfied, the Park West Shopping Center is one of The Valley’s most beautiful outdoor lifestyle centers, and you’ll be just a few minutes’ walk from seeing a Cardinals game at State Farm Stadium.

And that’s just scratching the surface of a town filled with amazing performing arts, outstanding parks, and renowned schools. Peoria is a booming center of fun and culture, and Shea is thrilled to bring their award-winning craftsmanship to town yet again.Emblem Great Room

Sound great? Come by and the Shea difference first hand! Take a tour, walk the neighborhood, and hunt for your dream lot! Head by 26781 N 72nd Lane Peoria, AZ 85383 this weekend and see what makes Aloravita the envy of Peoria.
