Wanted: A neighborhood for the kids at Stepping Stone

by Shea Homes Colorado on April 25, 2016

Cain Family

A few years ago, Jessica and Brent realized their East Parker home wasn’t quite as kid-friendly as they’d envisioned. A huge house on a half-acre seemed like a smart choice for their three boys. But it was on a corner lot on a hill next to a busy street—dangerous for bike riding. The home was older, so all the original owners’ kids were high-school age, so no playmates for the little ones. The pool was always crowded, the big yard was a headache to maintain, and driving the kids across town to lacrosse games was a hassle. [read more…]

Why the best parties happen at Stepping Stone.

by Shea Homes Colorado on February 11, 2016

 

Some might say Stepping Stone’s  festive streak is simply a function of the fun, friendly people who tend to move there. (At Stepping Stone by Shea Homes, there’s a great mix of young couples, families, and empty nesters all eager to connect.) Or it could be the very active HOA that’s always cooking up special events where neighbors get to know each other. All true, but there’s another factor at work: Stepping Stone offers perfect places for entertaining, both at the Lantern House and in residents’ own homes.

The Lantern House is a beautiful gathering place where residents not only meet for community events, but host private parties. Summer pool bashes are a popular choice, thanks to the competition-sized pool and sundeck. But winter holiday parties are just as easy with a lounge, rooms of assorted sizes, a kitchen with bar seating, and a dining area that accommodates 75 people.

That said, Stepping Stone homeowners have some amazing places to entertain right in their own homes. Visit any of the model homes and you may find yourself dreaming up the guest list for your housewarming party. [read more…]
