New Brightside Homes at Bay Meadows

by Shea Homes Northern California on November 14, 2014

 

Brightside Homeowners Shara and RobertExcitement was in the air at the first Brightside home release at Bay Meadows in San Mateo. The release was a great success, with all four of the initial homes released being placed on hold. Brightside buyers were literally jumping for joy over their new homes, and we can’t blame them for being excited!

With 4 gorgeous new designer model homes expected to open for viewing in December, construction is already well underway. Five new Brightside homes will be released for sale on Saturday, November 22nd.

Brightside offers 80 new homes in a premier location, facing Bay Meadows’ 12-acre park and adjacent to Paddock Park, and near the prestigious new Neuva School. Built by Shea Homes, these 2- to 4-bedroom townhomes were designed by KTGY Architects, and model home decor is by CDC Designs. Each home includes a covered deck to enjoy Bay Meadows’ vibrant outdoor experiences. The interiors are convenient and comfortable with an opulent mix of materials and colors. Brightside’s landscaped paths, gathering places and private courtyards border the park’s rich greenery. Whole Foods, Hillsdale Mall and the Caltrain Station are a short walk or bike ride away.

The nest is empty. But the schedule is full at BackCountry.

by Shea Homes Colorado on October 16, 2014

 

Last year’s Empty Nester Christmas party had a new rule. Only the men could do the cooking. The end result was scrumptious lasagna, less-stressed ladies, and the largest turnout yet—upwards of 50 people.

BackCountry is home to a wonderfully active network of singles and couples beyond the child-raising years. Lou Casteel, the informal head of this loose social network, counts about 80 residents on her email list. Each quarter, they meet for potlucks in the comfy sitting area and kitchen at the Sundial House. “It’s perfect,” says Lou. “You can get together with lots of people and no one has to clean their home.”

Other functions include a monthly Empty Nester Coffee, Monday games of mahjong, Thursday bridge, and couples’ canasta/hand-and-foot (plus potluck) one Friday a month. [read more…]

In every first-time endeavor—whether it’s having a baby, adopting a puppy, or buying a new home—it can be pretty comforting to hear from those who have traveled the path before you. And actually enjoyed the journey.

Amy Menges and her husband, David, are two of those happy trailblazers. They closed on their new home on July 11, eight days before Stepping Stone’s grand opening. They’d been looking casually at homes for a couple of years, but nothing felt quite right. Until they saw Stepping Stone’s model by Shea Homes.

“We were amazed at how it checked off everything on our list,” says Amy. “The layout and finishes were beautiful, it had a contemporary feel. And the location was great.”

The Mengeses had lived in Littleton for 30 years, but with their kids grown up they were ready for a change. Main floor living. Contemporary, clean styling. And Parker’s unique vibe, which they fell in love with. “There’s a small town feel here,” Amy says. “It’s fun. They have a great farmers market, summer festivals, an arts center. But in 10 minutes I can be at Park Meadows mall. It’s quick to get anywhere.” [read more…]
