colorado lifestyle

 

It has been a busy year for us here at Shea Homes® Arizona. We opened four new communities: the modern gated community of 24 North in North Phoenix, the beautiful Carino Villas condominiums in Chandler, the luxurious Vantage condos in Ahwatukee, and the Shea 3D community Ambition at Eastmark in Mesa.

And while it’s always exciting to open new communities, the most rewarding part of this business in helping families select, build, and ultimately move into their dream homes.

So after all this activity in 2016, will we be slowing the pace in 2017? Not a chance! In the coming year, we will be opening more Shea Homes communities to meet continued demand, and welcoming even more happy homeowners to the Shea family. Here’s a peek at some of our upcoming activity.

The Reserves – Gilbert
The Reserves at Val Vista
In spring 2017, we will open the doors to our luxury gated Gilbert development, The Reserves. Here, we plan to offer 383 four single-story, distinctive floor plans, measuring approximately 3,282 – 3,982 square feet.

by Shea Homes Arizona on December 9, 2016

 

If you haven’t yet visited our newest Shea Homes® community, 24 North, you are in for a treat. This modern gated community in North Phoenix is ideally located near the I-17 (Flagstaff ski trip, anyone?), schools, shopping and restaurants, as well as extensive trails in the nearby Phoenix Sonoran Desert Preserve. Plus, private yards make it easy to enjoy Arizona living – especially since the HOA maintains front yards.

You’ll find us located at 31534 N. 24th Drive, Phoenix, AZ 85085 (adjacent to the Sonoran Foothills masterplan) Here are the three home plans you will have to choose from:

24 North – 1001 Altair Plan
Altair PlanWalk into this fabulous two-story, 2,025 square-foot, single family home and you’ll feel at home immediately upon arrival. The home’s spacious kitchen is open to a grand dining room and a cozy living space. This configuration is great for both entertaining and every day family life. Storage abounds with a two-car garage and full laundry room plus a master suite with doors leading to a stunning bathroom and walk-in closet. And you can choose a floorplan with three spacious bedrooms plus a loft, or the four bedroom option.

Ideas for Celebrating Thanksgiving Arizona-Style

by Shea Homes Arizona on November 19, 2016

Happy Thanksgiving
Order Take-out

Not in the mood to shop, cook, and tackle the dishes? Give thanks for the many Thanksgiving take-out options. Go for the complete meal or order sides a la carte from local fave, Lucy’s Healthy Marketplace. Other local food purveyors offering Turkey Day takeout are AJ’s, Safeway, Sprouts, Miracle Mile, La Grande Orange and Chompie’s.

Get Some Exercise

With turkey trots taking place from Phoenix to Mesa, and Anthem to Litchfield, it’s easy to get your run (or walk) done. Take it easy and complete a 1 mile course, or if you’re planning on an extra helping of pie, go for a 5K or 10K race. Complete turkey trot listing available here.

See a Parade

You can always tune in to the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Or if you want to get off the couch and enjoy some fresh air, pop over to Fountain Hills for the big Thanksgiving Day Parade (also called Parade De Los Cerros, or Parade of the Hills), now in its 20th year.

Go to the Movies

What better way to relax after a big meal than to kick back and recline in a dark theater? Popcorn optional. This year, a much anticipated family film will be opening at Harkins Theaters on Thanksgiving Day. Details here!

Host a Friendsgiving

Gather your friends and invite them over for Thanksgiving dinner – potluck style! Feel free to bend the “rules” and serve cocktails and tapas in lieu of the traditional spread. And if you need tips or wonder what the heck a Friendsgiving is, check out this step by step guide from Food Network.

Help Feed Others

Support St. Vincent de Paul’s efforts to provide a turkey dinner with all the trimmings by donating to the organization’s annual Turkey Tuesday turkey drive on November 22. Turkeys, side dishes, and monetary donations can be dropped off at any Bashas or Food City location.

Sales by Shea Homes Marketing Company (AZ DRE #CO550381000), Construction by Shea Homes Limited Partnership (ROC 195895). Trademarks are the property of their respective owner.
