Why the best parties happen at Stepping Stone.

by Shea Homes Colorado on February 11, 2016


Some might say Stepping Stone’s  festive streak is simply a function of the fun, friendly people who tend to move there. (At Stepping Stone by Shea Homes, there’s a great mix of young couples, families, and empty nesters all eager to connect.) Or it could be the very active HOA that’s always cooking up special events where neighbors get to know each other. All true, but there’s another factor at work: Stepping Stone offers perfect places for entertaining, both at the Lantern House and in residents’ own homes.

The Lantern House is a beautiful gathering place where residents not only meet for community events, but host private parties. Summer pool bashes are a popular choice, thanks to the competition-sized pool and sundeck. But winter holiday parties are just as easy with a lounge, rooms of assorted sizes, a kitchen with bar seating, and a dining area that accommodates 75 people.

That said, Stepping Stone homeowners have some amazing places to entertain right in their own homes. Visit any of the model homes and you may find yourself dreaming up the guest list for your housewarming party.

In Shea’s Discovery Collection, the 3507 model keeps everyone connected at your get-togethers. The kitchen, with island seating, flows right into the dining area, great room, and a cozy game-playing area. No one gets left out of the conversation, even if they’re prepping the meal.

The kitchen is the heart of the home and where the party always ends up anyway. So when guests walk into the 4006 model, they immediately feel right at home, welcomed by an inviting kitchen and dining room with fireplace.

The 5002 model boasts an upstairs loft perfect for a secondary entertainment area. An ideal place to catch the Broncos—or Frozen (again), depending on the age of your guests.

A dream come true for party throwers who love to cook, the 5004 offers an exceptionally spacious kitchen with a meal bar and large walk-in pantry so you can stock up on gourmet goodies.

In Shea’s newest ranch models from the Watercolor Collection, our homebuyers will entertain to the nines.  The Cimarron plan hits the mark with an open concept living area with the kitchen, dining room, and family room.

The notable features of the Marigold plan are a study off the entry and a fantastic kitchen with an eat bar that opens to both the cozy nook and the spacious great room.  For additional entertaining space in the Watercolor Collection, opt for the finished basement with a large recreation room, additional bedroom and bathroom.
