Redefine Lower Level LivingLet’s play a little word association game. What comes to mind when you hear the word basement? Perhaps a dark and musty space, used for doing laundry and storing old furniture and holiday decorations?

Now wipe that mental slate clean. Because today’s lower levels are nothing like the basements of old. In fact, we don’t even like to use the dreaded “b” word. At Shea Homes, we are redefining the meaning of lower level living. These high style, multi-functional areas, available at our Latitude at Cantilena and Shea Signature Azure Paradise Valley communities, include high ceilings and oversized light wells that bring in tons of natural light.

Lower level living is ideal for a wide range of homeowners — from families with growing children who want to use these open and airy spaces for sleepovers or a spot to hang out with friends to empty-nesters looking for a theater or workout space. Some of our homeowners enjoy having additional space for guests, or even using some of their lower level for seasonal closet space. It’s truly like having a private getaway within your own home.

Plus, in the summer months, these lower levels can be a cool spot to find respite from the heat – and they may be more energy efficient than a comparably sized home without a lower level, because the area is not exposed to sun and heat.

If you’re interested in exploring Shea style lower level living, visit Latitude at Cantilena and Azure, Paradise Valley. See you down under!

Grand Opening - Latitude at Cantilena

It’s been a busy summer for Shea Homes®, and we are gearing up to launch our third new community in Peoria, Arizona, Latitude at Cantilena. If you haven’t yet been out to see our beautiful model homes at The Reserves at Cantilena and Evolve at Cantilena, then the August 19th grand opening of Latitude is a great reason to join us and see what all the excitement is about.

Priced from $553,990, Latitude at Cantilena offers homes ranging from 4-5 bedrooms and 2.5 – 4.5 baths. The community has a selection of five thoughtfully designed floorplans that start at approximately 3,091 square feet up to 4,937 square feet. All five plans include a 4 car garage, so you’ll have plenty of room for all your vehicles, toys, and gear.

Each home is a single-level, ranch style home — and for those who covet a basement, you’re in luck. One of these plans has a basement standard. Latitude will also provide home buyers with exclusive offerings such as RV garages, casitas/guest suites, and pool cabanas. When complete, Latitude is slated to include 21 homes.

Within the community, homeowners will enjoy BBQ’s, ramadas, benches, and play equipment – perfect for enjoying Arizona outdoor living with the family. Cantilena is located close to Lake Pleasant, hiking trails, shopping, and dining. Come out and see for yourself why Peoria is becoming such a sought after destination for new home buyers. We’ll be happy to show you around and help you select and design your dream home.
