Peek Inside The Painted Sky Ranch Models At BackCountry

by Shea Homes Colorado on November 28, 2016

 

If main floor living is on your wish list—as it is for many—this post is for you.  Shea Homes® is pleased to announce that three new ranch models are open and ready for touring. The photos below offer a sneak peek at what you’ll see on your visit to the Painted Sky Collection at BackCountry™.

The new Painted Sky Collection by Shea Homes includes three ranch plans—Daybreak, Stargazer, and Indigo Mist—with exceptional appeal and livability. Sizes range from 2-5 bedrooms, 2.5-4.5 bathrooms, and approximately 2,221-3,540 square feet. All three plans are available in two elevations with warm, character-rich exteriors. Entertaining is often a priority for families seeking a ranch home, as is space for out-of-town guests. The Painted Sky Collection delivers nicely with large, well-designed kitchens with eating bars, open-concept living, patios, and options for finishing basements with extra bedrooms and entertainment spaces. Prices range from the upper $500s-upper $600s.

Bringing Fall to Colorado: Changing Colors, Fall Decor

by Shea Homes Colorado on October 4, 2016

 

How to bring autumn indoors.

It’s gorgeous out there, isn’t it? Autumn’s shorter, cooler days are working their magic, turning ash trees scarlet, maples orange, and aspens a shimmering gold. At our Shea Homes® communities, walks on the trails and playdates in the park are truly a feast for the senses these days. So maybe it’s worth considering how to bring some of that wonderful fall feeling inside your home, perhaps through autumn-fresh décor or seasonally inspired cooking.

BackCountry: The summer home that wasn’t…

by Shea Homes Colorado on June 17, 2016

 

Cathy and Sam loved Colorado. They’d been vacationing here for years to escape the sticky Houston summers. So when they retired a few years ago, and with their son married and living in England, they turned to each other and said, “Now we can live where we want to live.”

Thinking they’d buy a condo in the Denver area for summer living, they scoured the city with a Realtor® for days—but found nothing they liked. Discouraged, on the last day of their trip they took off on their own, wandered into Highlands Ranch and somehow “stumbled across BackCountry, a Shea Homes® Community,” says Sam. “Two hours later, we’d written a check.” Suddenly, that summer condo turned into a year-round dream home.

Wanted: A neighborhood for the kids at Stepping Stone

April 25, 2016




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 […]
