Prescott Homes Coming Soon to Mountain House

by Shea Homes Northern California on August 13, 2018

Prescott Logo | Mountain House, CA
Prescott by Shea Homes® is coming soon to Hansen Village in Mountain House. We’ve shined a light on the American dream and made it work in every way. Prescott is quintessential Northern California living, with more style, function and living space than you ever thought possible.

From covered porches to open living areas, these homes offer the best of old and new. Classic architecture makes a great first impression, while generous square footage, master suites and 3 car garages tick all the boxes. These homes are expected to start selling sometime later this fall – and construction on our model homes is already underway!

View these two new home plans below and see which one fits you best:

“Why can’t I find a single-story new home in Southern California?”

It’s a common complaint and we hear it a lot in our sales offices at Shea Homes® around San Diego.

But at One Oak in Encinitas, we’re delivering over a dozen single-story homes, all with sweeping views* of the coastline to the west and the San Diego backcountry to the east.

In fact, more than half of our 28 new homes at One Oak are single-story; a real luxury in San Diego’s popular, but land-constrained, North County. On these elevated view home sites at One Oak, no single-level homes repeat the same exterior elevation and all include generous indoor-outdoor spaces that substantially increase the livable square footage.

What to Expect: Buying vs. Building a New Home

by Shea Homes on June 6, 2018

What to Expect Building vs. Buying a Home

It’s decided. Your dream home from a few years ago is just no longer your dream home today. The single sink in the master bathroom isn’t cutting it. The kids are getting bigger and sharing a room really is not feasible anymore. And, no matter how many late-night Pinterest sessions you’ve embarked upon, that awkwardly shaped room still isn’t styled the way you’d like.

So, you’ve downloaded the real estate apps and stop to grab a flyer when passing by any “for sale” sign outside a house on your drives around town. But, have you considered building your new dream home? Often, those in the market to buy a home don’t consider building a home personalized for them. However, building a new home, instead of buying an older home, could be a great option, allowing you to get the home features that will serve your family’s wants and needs.
