Stepping Stone, then and now.

by Shea Homes Colorado on April 27, 2015

 

Hard to believe, but it’s only been two years since ground was first broken at Stepping Stone in Parker, Colorado.  From stretches of dirt to a thriving community centered around a very active Lantern House and competition-size swimming pool, Stepping Stone has come a long way quickly.  And there’s so much more good stuff to come.

These photos below gauge how our community has grown, and hint at how a few more years will yield even more tree-filled parks, friendly neighbors, and an increasingly vibrant sense of community.  Enjoy!

And so it begins.  Shea Homes starts the earth moving process in November, 2012.  A not-so-glamorous trailer serves as headquarters for home buyers who already catch the vision.

Now located in beautifully furnished model homes, Shea Homes welcomes visitors to explore four model homes ranging in size from 1,863 to 3,110 square feet with base pricing from the $300s to the $400s.

Stepping Stone’s lonely first street, in contrast with the streetscapes of today (on warmer days) kids play and adults mingle.

Residents kept an eye on the progress during the winter, watching as the walls went up and the pool was dug.  Summer 2014 couldn’t come fast enough.

The Grand Opening in July of 2014 was a blast for every age group.

Parks and playgrounds are now a beautiful reality.
