PHOTO FOCUS | Award-Winning Vista Dorado in Brentwood

by Shea Homes Northern California on November 20, 2017

 

It’s no wonder that the breathtaking Vista Dorado community was selected as 2017 Community of the Year by the Bay Area Building Industry Association. Located in the rolling hills of Brentwood, California, with close proximity to shopping and dining, these spacious and gracious homes have plenty to offer homebuyers.

Shea Homes® Vista Dorado Plan 3 home was selected as Best Architectural Design in its category, and it’s easy to see why. The home, at approximately 4,126 square feet, beckons those who love to cook and entertain. It features an expansive 2-island kitchen with a super pantry, butler’s pantry and an optional outdoor kitchen. The optional Suite Home features its own private entry, which allows for independent living, and the dog washing station is a great design selection for our canine-loving friends. This home is truly a stunner. But, don’t take our word for it – view photos of our model home below, or take a virtual tour and experience life in the Vista Dorado Plan 3 for yourself.
