Virtually Tour Boat House at The Dunes on Monterey Bay

by Shea Homes Northern California on September 11, 2018

 

Did you know that our Virtual Tours allow you to check our out new Boat House model homes in 360° online? You can take a stroll around all our stunning communities without leaving your desk or couch!

Boat House by Shea Homes® is the latest collection of homes at The Dunes, and features two new home plan layouts, as well as detached 3 car garages. Both of these spacious home plans also include a Suite Home over the detached 3 car garage. These multi-generational living Suite Home units each have their own bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, and living space, and are great for grandparent visits, a home office, or rental income.

Learn a little more about each of the Boat House home plans below, take a virtual tour, then give us a call at (866) 696-7432 to schedule your visit.

Boat House Plan 1
5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Approx. 3,260 Square Feet Home Plan | Virtual Tour
This home plan features open concept living with lots of natural light. The whole family can gather in this spacious home, and Grandma can sleep in the downstairs bedroom when she comes to visit. Upstairs, the kids can play in the loft, and parents can zen out in their master bedroom and spacious master bath. The upstairs laundry room is a necessity, but the walk in closet is truly for fun.
Boat House Plan 1 | The Dunes on Monterey Bay

Boat House Plan 2
5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, Approx. 3,668 Square Feet Home Plan | Virtual Tour
The Plan 2 at Boat House features a spacious great room with an open concept kitchen that was designed for entertaining. The first floor den makes for a functional and flexible office space, and the upstairs loft would make for a great homework area, craft space, or gaming space for the kids. The master bedroom and en suite make for a relaxing retreat away from it all, and the walk in closet offers an elegant space to store your attire.
Boat House Plan 2 | The Dunes on Monterey Bay

Located in Marina, California, less than 1 mile from Monterey Bay, these new homes by Shea Homes feature easy access to shopping, dining, and entertainment — all within walking distance. Monterey Bay recalls Fort Ord, John Steinbeck, Spanish Missionaries, and more. Yet its richer history is one of timeless beauty, with rolling hills and gentle sea breezes. Today, The Dunes links Monterey Bay with a modern lifestyle of recreation, comfort and convenience. To learn more, visit TheDunesOnMontereyBay.com.
