Shea Homes® unique outdoor living space designs create a seamless extension of your home that best fits your family’s lifestyle.

Outdoor Living Spaces

As a homebuyer, you’re not just purchasing a house, you’re creating a home. More homeowners are seeking to achieve this sense of home by creating amazing outdoor spaces that blend the lines of indoor and outdoor. According to a released by Zillow on amenities that drive home selection, private outdoor space ranks among the top factors. This is why Shea Homes focuses on creating outdoor living areas that homeowners can experience and enjoy in different ways.

Outdoor Living Space Ideas from Different Home Plans

Each Shea home and community is designed with an emphasis on gathering spaces and maximizing the homeowner’s living area. That is why we build in areas that are suitable for outdoor living, and not just in the summer months! Our homes and communities are often surrounded by areas that feature parks, golf courses or gardens, encouraging the indoor-outdoor living experience. From courtyards to patios, each home plan boasts a unique opportunity to create your dream outdoor living space that harmoniously blurs the boundaries of inside and out.

Indoor-Outdoor Living Spaces

When you think of a room, you typically think of the walls that enclose it. Why not push the limits of home design and create a room where one of the walls is the outdoors! Shea Homes is transforming outdoor spaces into “outdoor rooms,” creating a true extension of your home and maximizing livable space. According to Martin Reill, a Shea Homes Product Development Manager, “This design makes the room feel as though you are inside, yet still open to some of the natural elements of the outdoors.” Outdoor rooms allow for comfortable seating, shielded from the sun in those hot summer months. For year-round use, homeowners can add sliding doors or a fire pit to account for temperamental weather and get the most use out of these unique spaces.

Courtyard Design and Architecture

Unlike front or backyards, courtyards create an intimate and inviting space that you can use every day. By focusing on natural lighting and thoughtful décor, you can revamp your courtyard to be the center of your home entertainment and a space you will enjoy year-round. Adding a dining table and chairs can create the perfect setting to host a dinner party or unwind after a long day at work.

The Ventana and the Riviera, featured at Trilogy at Monarch Dunes in Nipomo, CA, are two home plans that boast a beautiful courtyard that provides a welcoming entrance into the main living areas. Whether hosting a neighborhood brunch or simply relaxing with family, a courtyard lets you enjoy the outdoors in the comfort of your own home.

Back Patio Design 

Nothing beats those warm summer nights on the patio. A back patio can serve as a sanctuary to enjoy your morning coffee or cozy up with a good book. It can also be a great gathering space for intimate get-togethers. Comfy furniture and the right patio décor can help you transform this space into your favorite and most peaceful part of the house. Adding outdoor candles, a soft string of lights or a water feature can help you find that perfect Zen. Visit our Pinterest board for some outdoor décor inspo!

Shared Outdoor Spaces

Shea Homes and Trilogy® by Shea Homes offer shared spaces and amenities that evoke a sense of community. Whether it’s cabanas by the pool, or a grill station on the patio, these elaborate shared outdoor spaces are designed to meet the values and lifestyle of our communities, without the responsibility of maintenance and upkeep. Enjoy the benefits of these shared amenities with a round of golf or a summer BBQ with neighbors.
