Enjoy the Best of Outdoor Living in a New Shea Home

by Shea Homes Arizona on February 17, 2017

 

It’s February in Arizona! While much of the country is buried under snow, we’re gearing up for some fun in the sun. When you live in a state that has some of the best weather in the country (most of the year, anyway), it makes perfect sense to choose a home designed to take full advantage of outdoor living. Here are a few of the latest popular new home features that let homeowners enjoy Arizona living to the fullest.

Courtyards
CourtyardsCourtyards add expanded living space, give your family more room to spread out, and provide multiple entertaining spaces for kids and adults. With the right furniture, a fireplace and maybe a stocked bar, you’ll find plenty of reasons to enjoy the great outdoors year-round.

Casitas, Ramadas and Cabanas
Casitas, Ramadas, CabanasIf you like to entertain, casitas, ramadas and cabanas are great ways to transform your backyard into the ideal party spot. Throw in a flat-screen TV or two, and you can alternate between watching the big game and cooling off with a dip in the pool.

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.

5 Thoughtful Things We Do to Reduce Sound From Condo to Condo

by Shea Homes Arizona on October 21, 2016

 

Before planning the construction of our Shea Homes® condos here in Arizona, our leadership team toured west coast condo communities and met with construction professionals to understand any challenges and how-to best approach building a condo community buyers will want to be a part of. One of the biggest challenges noted during these tours and industry discussions, surrounded noise reduction.

While we can’t guarantee you will hear absolutely no sound, from condo to condo, we can say we’ve worked hard to significantly reduce it.

Starting with soft-close technology.

  1. SOFT-CLOSE TECHNOLOGY

Soft-Close TechnologyEvery kitchen and bathroom cabinet is equipped with soft-close technology, which keeps cabinet doors and drawers from slamming. This significantly reduces the chances anyone will hear doors slamming or drawers closing.
