Extended family who live together has made a major resurgence to American living and Lennar is beyond excited to be the only homebuilder to build this “never before seen”
floorplan. This new trend of multi-generational living has encouraged Lennar to design a home that allows extended family to live all together in one home – except with separate living spaces and separate front door entrances.
On Saturday, December 10th, Lennar’s NEXT GEN℠ - “The Home within a Home℠” floorplan at Charleston is officially being unveiled to the public and everyone is invited to come out for the big event, enjoy some lunch and tour the brand-new models.
“We have already launched this floorplan in other locations and the response has been overwhelming – people are truly loving this concept!” said Greg McGuff, Division President. “We are constantly keeping our finger on the pulse of new trends in homebuilding – and these extraordinary floorplans are taking the company to the next level of innovation in homebuilding and providing homebuyers with even more flexibility and choices in the way they live.”
According to Lennar, after conducting much research and seeing a rising need for this type of living situation, Lennar decided to design a distinctive floorplan that can accommodate different living arrangements while still providing great use of space, square footage and, most importantly, privacy.
“We have created this plan to allow for dual living situations without sacrificing comfort – it’s literally a home within a home.” stated McGuff.
The economy has dramatically contributed to the decision to build this type of product. Many aging parents have seen their retirement investments diminish during recent years and many college-age children are finding it necessary to move back home. With housing typically being the largest part of the monthly budget, moving in together is an option many are embracing. “The opportunity for families to share a mortgage makes a lot of economic sense for many families,” added McGuff.
In fact, Lennar, surveyed more than 1,200 people in the country’s western region and found that one-third of respondents are already sharing their home with a parent, adult child or some other adult.
The Pew Research Center also shows 49 million Americans are living in a household that contained at least two adult generations, up from 28 million in 1980. And the Census Bureau found last spring that 18.3% of U.S. households contained adult relatives or roommates, up from 17% four years earlier. “Both the economics and the demographics of those already living in a multi-generational home made this an obvious solution,” stated McGuff.
The suite includes a separate entrance, living space, kitchenette, bedroom, full bath, stacked washer and dryer and intimate outdoor living space. Lennar designed this unique floorplan to be incorporated into the main home floorplan in a way that allows it to be a separate space but also offers direct access from the main house, depending upon the family’s needs. Plus, the Charleston community features a beautiful park, playground, picnic areas and trail for residents to enjoy. Prices begin from the mid $400,000’s.
“Imagine having your parents nearby to help care for your children, or saving money on adult care for them because they live with you,” said McGuff. “Or being able to provide enough space for your child who needs to move in after college – now you can have all that and still have the size home you need for your family. Lennar’s Next Gen - The home within a home, is essentially two homes with one payment, making living together affordable, comfortable and flexible to your family’s needs.”
Many of the homes include a high level of custom-quality appointments featuring stunning gourmet kitchens, relaxing master suites with walk-in closets, spacious rooms and charming porches, per plan.
