The Cannery: A Farm-to-Table New Home Community

by Shea Homes Northern California on November 24, 2015

 

The idea for living at The Cannery is pure and natural: Surround homes with parks and a working farm. The parks and open space energize the residents and the farm feeds the community. The Cannery is the first farm-to-table new home community in California, and it will include 547 energy efficient homes with Livable Design features built into every residence. The homes will be diverse, for all generations and lifestyles, some homes’ multi-generational Suite Home designs include guest houses and private quarters.

At The Cannery, the entire cycle of life – from raising food to raising families – revolves in one, healthy place.  The first fresh, green community bordered by its own farm, The Cannery is rooted in the most up-to-date neighborhood and environmental thinking. Yet, it is down-to-earth and friendly with parks, paths, stores, and plazas that make life easier, healthier, sustainable, and comfortable. The neighborhood includes a clubhouse, pool, dog park and practice soccer field. Bike paths will wind throughout the site. And lucky for you, two new Shea Homes communities are now selling at The Cannery in Davis.

Tilton by Shea Homes | Tilton will be made up of 76 cottages with up to four bedrooms and three baths, ranging from 1,706 to 3,024 square feet. The cottage-style homes at Tilton feature stunning great rooms and kitchens, ideal for a growing family. The majority of the home plans include an attached two-car garage, with plenty of room for bike storage. Tilton is priced from the mid $700,000s. PHOTOS | FLOOR PLANS

Two of these bungalow-style homes feature a separate multi-generational Suite Home ideal for college students or family members.

Elegant and Exciting Choices at Mountain House

by Shea Homes Northern California on August 19, 2014

Umbria by Shea Homes
Among the new homes at Mountain House, some of the most elegant and exciting choices are now released for sale. The Umbria collection features larger floorplans, generous yards, unique architecture and special features like the “Suite Home” in plans 2 and 4. These comfortable multi-generational living suites come complete with their own private entry and address, for a truly independent feel.

Keeping Families Together

Umbria’s spacious floorplans range from a single-story 2,488 square feet to a two-story plan with 3,907 total square feet. Two of the four floorplans – plans 2 and 4, include a “Suite Home” living space, where extended family can enjoy an independent lifestyle under the same roof. The “Suite Home” has a private entrance leading to a bedroom, a full bath and a kitchenette. It’s a perfect living space for in-laws, elders or even kids returning home from college. While multi-generational living is becoming more and more popular in California, there are very few new homes available that actually include such a designated living space.

Your life has been growing, expanding and improving at every turn. It’s time to choose a home that fits the new you, with spaciousness for continued growth. Your Umbria home has the quality you seek, the space you need and something extra — room for your dreams.

Hundreds of guests gathered in Mountain House to view the three stunning new model homes at the Umbria Grand Opening on June 7th. One of the many highlights of the new Umbria floorplans is the multi-generational “Suite Home” featured in Plan 2 and Plan 4, which includes a bedroom, bathroom, living area, and kitchenette. These separate units come complete with a unique address, giving homeowners the option to rent the space out, or use the Suite Homes for extended visits from family members. All of the new homes at Umbria feature spacious master suites with large walk-in closets, stainless steel kitchen appliances, and sierra-style cabinets with full extension glides.

Umbria Suite Homes

Every Mountain House neighborhood has its own unique architectural character and landscape palette. Umbria offers an intimate, fresh-air country hometown feeling, away from the urban jungle but close to what matters. Mountain House has placed top rated K–8 schools at the center of every village, along with beautiful parks and miles of trails connecting the community.

Buzzword: Multi-generational…what does it mean for you?

by Shea Homes Arizona on January 18, 2013

As life carries on for each member of your family, your single-family home will go through phases of being a playroom to an empty nest to a…semi-permanent family reunion?  While multi-family homes consist of separate families living in separate units in the same building, also known as apartments or condos, multi-generational homes consist of one family living under one roof – in other words, a potential madhouse! However, at Shea Homes we offer plans that can accommodate the changing family needs of our customers.

Whether you have new graduates returning home from college or parents willing to avoid retirement homes at all costs, our Shea Homes Arizona’s architectural team designs homes specifically for multi-generational families.  These plans provide enough space for every family member to be comfortable while enjoying each other’s company, as well as having the ability to retreat to your own quarters. 

In your multi-generational home, you have the choice of guest suites, casitas or even a second master bedroom to ensure you have the space you need for additional family members.  For aging parents or grandparents, first-floor bedrooms, single-touch appliances, lever door handles, or other accommodating options can be built in your home for their health and mobility needs. For increased flexibility and livability, we may also offer wider hallways and no-step entries to make navigating a baby stroller or wheelchair simple at home. Everyday appliances can be provided on both floors of your home or in the neighboring casita so that clutter and chaos in the kitchen is avoided and space is available. (Option change fees may apply, will vary per floor plan, and should be discussed in advance with Community Representatives.) 

Multi-generational homes don’t look any different than typical single-family homes, but they function quite differently.  With a vast range of needs required for multi-generational homes, the architecture and design can be tricky.  But here at Shea Homes, we can provide your ultimate home designed specifically for your baby, toddler, college grad, elders and YOU!
