Lennar, Arizona’s largest homebuilder, is bringing its popular Next Gen home to the Northwest Valley.
Next Gen homes are basically a home within a home, giving residents the balance of family privacy and togetherness under one roof. Featuring two homes under one roof, this design allows residents to share their home with loved ones, whether it be aging parents or long-term guests.
With the coronavirus pandemic and more people looking for alternatives for elderly parents or work from home options, this multigenerational concept has taken off. Next Gen units can serve as fully functioning home offices, a state of the art gym, a home for aging relatives, or even a classroom that keeps kids engaged and learning.
These Next Gen homes are open in Peoria’s new 1,300-acre Mystic community, located just north of Happy Valley Road and west of the Loop 303.
“As Peoria continues to grow and maintains its reputation for a truly family friendly community, it’s a perfect fit for our Next Gen home concept,” says Alan Jones, Division President for Lennar Homes.
Lennar’s Next Gen homes range from 2,649 to 3,520 square feet and offer amenities such as Wi-Fi connectivity, green building and smart home features, and Energy Star appliances. Home prices start from the low $500,000’s.
Lennar sold more Next Gen homes last year during the pandemic than in any other year since Lennar pioneered the Next Gen concept in Phoenix in 2012. Nearly 500 Next Gen homes were sold in 2020 alone in the Phoenix market, accounting for more than 25% of all Lennar sales.
‘With the realities of home schooling, working from home and having parents and grandparents living in the family residence now, this project was accelerated due to what’s happening in the world today,” adds Jones. “Lennar will continue to identify consumer needs based on the lifestyle our clients are living today and design homes that meet those needs. These innovative floor plans better reflect the way families are expected to live, work, play and learn in the 2020’s. This is definitely our home of the future.”
