Enjoy the Best of Outdoor Living in a Shea Home

by Shea Homes Arizona on January 19, 2018

 
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.
