Grand Opening of Newest Shea Peoria Community – Aloravita

by Shea Homes Arizona on December 7, 2018

 

Mark your calendars, because Saturday, December 8th, 2018 is the official grand opening of Shea Homes® Arizona’s newest Peoria communities– Ascent and Emblem at Aloravita! Models are open and homesites are up for grabs; now is the time to pick the perfect spot for your new home. So, grab your friends and family and come see these stunning homes set in an innovative community in the heart of the Peoria – an ideal place for families who love to explore the outdoors.

“Peoria has a lot to offer buyers,” says Ken Peterson, VP of Sales and Marketing for Shea Homes Arizona. “With Lake Pleasant right up the road and tons of entertainment and dining options, it’s a great place for people who want an outgoing lifestyle, whatever their age.”Emblem

Shea is building across 29 acres at the northeast corner of 75th Avenue and Jomax. Nestled between panoramic Peoria Mountain Preserves and Thunderbird Conservation Park, the stunning landscape provides a natural backdrop to the 124 single family 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 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, ranging from 1,968 square feet up to 3,062. Emblem sports homes from 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms up to 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, from 2,218 square feet to 3,505.

As a part of the Aloravita, you’ll find plenty to do around your new neighborhood. Filled with manicured parks, miles of walking and biking trails, and only a short distance from the West Wing Mountain Trail, residents will have everything they need to stay fit and have fun doing it.Emblem Kitchen and Great Room

Beyond the beauty of the Aloravita community, there is a lot to love in Peoria. For all you outdoor enthusiasts, there is perhaps no better place in the entire Valley. Spend the day at Lake Pleasant; boating, hiking, fishing, where classes like paddleboard yoga will keep you both entertained and physically fit. Sports fans will get their fill too, whether it’s swinging the sticks on the many award-winning golf courses around town, or drinking in the atmosphere when the Mariners and Padres come to town for Spring Training at the Peoria Sports Complex.

Once the 9th inning ends, step out into P83 Entertainment District. Here you’ll find boutique shopping mixed with unique culinary concepts and family-friendly fun. If the shopaholic in you isn’t satisfied, the Park West Shopping Center is one of The Valley’s most beautiful outdoor lifestyle centers, and you’ll be just a few minutes’ walk from seeing a Cardinals game at State Farm Stadium.

And that’s just scratching the surface of a town filled with amazing performing arts, outstanding parks, and renowned schools. Peoria is a booming center of fun and culture, and Shea is thrilled to bring their award-winning craftsmanship to town yet again.Emblem Great Room

Sound great? Come by and the Shea difference first hand! Take a tour, walk the neighborhood, and hunt for your dream lot! Head by 26781 N 72nd Lane Peoria, AZ 85383 this weekend and see what makes Aloravita the envy of Peoria.

5 Fun Ideas for Your Flex Room

by Shea Homes Arizona on November 2, 2018

 

At Shea Homes® Arizona, our design team spends months, sometimes years, meticulously crafting our homes to tailor each floorplan to specific lifestyles. But no matter how much planning and heart goes into each design, the most important thing is that your home feels uniquely you.

That’s where the flex room comes in.

Flex rooms are designed to be flexible. You might see it on the floorplan labeled ‘flex’, or ‘optional space’, but they all amount to the same thing: your space to do with what you please. This is your chance to create a space that you love to return to, that will wow your guests when you give them a tour.

Here are five of our favorite flex rooms, curated to give you some inspiration for the spaces that will add the perfect pop of personality to your new home.

1. A Hobby Room
Hobby RoomYou can finally have a space dedicated purely to your passion. Whether you are an artist, a fitness enthusiast, or a collector, flex rooms provide a special area in your home that is solely dedicated to your favorite hobby.

2. An Office or Study Area
Home OfficeLet’s face it, no one truly leaves all of their work at the office. By turning a flex space into a home office or library, you will have a place where you can focus when you need to work late to meet a deadline or decide to work from home for the day. When you are not using it, the kids can use the space as a study area!

3. An Entertainment Room
Game RoomTurn your flex room into a space dedicated to having fun! Make your home the perfect place for entertaining by creating your own game table room, or a private movie theater. By having a separate entertainment space, you won’t have to worry about disturbing the rest of the family when you break during a game of table tennis, or when you want to watch an action movie late at night. On top of that, your home will quickly become the gathering place for all your friends!

When the Nest is Empty…Get a Bigger Nest

by Shea Homes Arizona on October 5, 2018

The Reserves at Val Vista - Forever HomeMichelle Smith, a Phoenix-area real estate agent, found herself in the same position many parents do when her son and daughter prepared to move-out for college: what do I do with all this extra space?

The answer, she thought, was downsizing. “Every other house I bought, I bought with my children in mind… this house we bought for us.” With decades of real estate experience behind her, Smith had Shea Homes® at the top of her list of builders. Knowing she didn’t want to move far from Chandler, where she’s lived for the past 25 years, Shea’s The Reserves at Val Vista naturally caught her eye.

“What we really wanted was a house with great entertaining spaces that didn’t have a million rooms,” she says. Originally she and her husband wanted a smaller space once the young ones moved out. But as they started looking at The Reserves, that changed; you’ll find no small spaces at The Reserves. The more Smith thought about what she really wanted from the next chapter of her life, she realized less space wasn’t the answer. This would be a home for many years to come, a home for birthdays and holidays, for grandparents and grandkids. Floorplan 7004 fit the bill perfectly.

The Smith’s fell in love with the design, and were the first couple to buy a home in the community.

Floorplan 7004 is 3,983 square feet.

Anything but downsizing.

“All the spaces you would usually entertain in – the breakfast nook, the dining room, the living room, kitchen – are very large. You could comfortably have 40 people in here.” Entertaining space: check. And while the kids would be moving out for school soon, Smith was keeping an eye on the future. With three large bedrooms and an additional casita, she wanted her extended family to have a place to stay for years to come.

“I could put in a king size bed, I could put in a crib, I could put in blow up beds – all so when my children have families of their own, they have a place to stay.”

It wasn’t just her children she had in mind. The Smiths added a backyard casita, as a future optional living space for their own parents. “It’s so perfect for an extended family down the line. We love that aspect of it.”

Room for the family: check. Between spacious bedrooms and oodles of living space, Smith knows her home will be the holiday getaway of choice for years to come.
