Corridors of open space draw nature into the neighborhood so that you and your family can step outside to relax, clamber across a waterway, or explore rustic trails.

Here, the traffic, the meetings, and the endless buzz of the modern world are forgotten as you marvel at how quiet and naturally beautiful life can be. Follow the trails even farther, and you’ll soon arrive at the awe-inspiring Backcountry Wilderness Area** where adventure and discovery await.

I am curious if there are any plans in Back Country that have the 2 story main floor master? There was a model but it is my understanding that one has been discontinued. I loved the master as well as the private courtyard. I didn’t much care if there was a dining room and definitely don’t need a wine room but the rest of the layout was perfect. I am not looking to start building for at least another year but would like to know if Shea has anything available that fits that build that the Featherwalk seemed to fill – almost.

Thank you.

Thank you for your inquiry regarding our BackCountry communities in Highlands Ranch. At this time, most of the 2-story plans at our BackCountry communities have a bedroom downstairs, but all Master Suites are on the second level.

If you desire the Highlands Ranch area; you may also want to take a look at both our SPACES at the Ranch Community, and Tresana Luxury Collection of duplex and triplex homes; with floorplans available up to 3241 square feet. Several plans at both of these Highlands Ranch communities are 2-story with Main Floor Master Bedrooms.

Please let us know how we may assist you further with any or all of these Shea Homes Communities. We appreciate your interest in Shea Homes, have a wonderful day!

Do you have custom ranch plans on large lots?
