Say Aloha to Aloravita, Shea’s Newest Peoria Community

by Shea Homes Arizona on September 14, 2018

Ascent & Emblem at Aloravita - Peoria, AZPeoria has absolutely exploded in popularity over the past few years. Whether that’s because of the beautiful surroundings, the countless amenities, or the lovely people (likely all three), it’s the ideal place for Arizonans who love to balance outdoor fun with a variety of entertainment options.

And now Shea Homes® Arizona is expanding with another Peoria development: Aloravita. With two new communities under construction, Ascent and Emblem, those looking to experience the Peoria lifestyle will have plenty of options to choose from.

A part of the Aloravita master-planned community, Shea is developing 124 single family homes across 29 acres at the northeast corner of 75th and Jomax. Nestled between Peoria Mountain Preserves and Thunderbird Conservation Park, the stunning landscape provides a natural backdrop to the homes, which take cues from southwestern design to create a harmony between the man-made and natural elements.

Both Ascent and Emblem boast six unique floorplans. Ascent features plans from 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms up to 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, ranging from approximately 1,968 square feet up to 3,062. Emblem will see homes from 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms up to 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, from approximately 2,218 square feet to 3,505.

A New Vantage on Life – A Shea Homeowner’s Story

by Shea Homes Arizona on September 7, 2018

 

Shelley, a music professor and accomplished pianist and harpist, had lived off the Club West Golf Course in South Phoenix for 20 years. But two years ago, when her husband passed away and she moved to Kansas to help care for her mother, her living situation changed dramatically. When the time came to find a new home in Phoenix again, there were a few things she knew she wanted, and a few she knew she didn’t.

“I didn’t want a house,” Shelley says. “I didn’t want the yard work, the pool maintenance, didn’t want the rattlesnakes in the front yard.” That last may not be a usual feature on people’s don’t-want list, but after Shelley’s dog Tank barely survived a bite from the venomous reptile, it was an important consideration.“I wanted a condo with a view, and I wanted to be back in Ahwatukee. That’s where my friends are, where my church is.”

Shelley researched locations while still living in Kansas. One day she suddenly remembered a beautiful community she and her husband had toured while helping a Californian friend find a place to move: Vantage, by Shea Homes®.

Vantage had everything Shelley was looking for: the ideal location in the Ahwatukee foothills, beautiful cabinetry and appliances, as well as meticulously maintained landscape and pool that Shelley never has to lift a finger to care for.

“[The condo] feels like a house: three bedrooms, two and a half baths, two car garage. It’s the perfect size for me.”

Time is running out for the chance to start a new chapter in the vibrant Shea Homes® community, Ambition at Eastmark!

A lively community, walkable parks, and rollicking events are just a part of what makes Eastmark such a desirable place to live. Pair that with Shea Homes’ unparalleled home design and construction, and it’s no wonder these homes are almost all gone.

But if you had your heart set on living in Ambition at Eastmark, it’s not too late…yet.

Model home 3583 Hope is the last home available at Ambition, and we’ve saved a great one for last!
At 2,518 square feet, this 4 bedrooms 3 baths quick move-in home is the ideal family dwelling. A professionally designed kitchen. A livable loft. Shop space in the garage. Every member of the family will find something to love in this hopeful home.
Step through the foyer, past the flex room which could easily become a den, office, or craft room, and you’ll find yourself in the expansive central living space. As a Shea3D home, this Kitchen-Centric model is any cuisine-lover’s dream.
