Living the Flexible Life at Riverstone
September 13, 2020
As we all know, life this year has been unpredictable to say the least. It has shed new light on the meaning of home, not just as a comforting haven for our families, but also as a place that can easily adapt to the new and ever-changing realities of our day-to-day lives.
Enjoying a home that truly fits how we’re all living is one of the best things about owning at the master-planned community of Riverstone. Whether it’s a dedicated home office ideal for work- and school-from-home situations, or innovative new-home designs that beautifully bring the outdoors in, many of the homes at Riverstone embrace it with ease.
For instance, at Lafayette at Riverstone, a new collection from award-winning Wathen Castanos Homes, homeowners can blur the lines of indoors and out in a seamless and stylish way. Beautiful, all-glass accordion doors allow the flow of the living room to open up into the backyard. The unique contemporary design sets the stage for all kinds of possibilities, from hosting alfresco dinner parties to enjoying a quiet outdoor space away from other family members to read, get some work done on your laptop or simply unwind and take in the views and fresh air.
Three gorgeous new-home collections from Lennar are now selling at Riverstone—the Chateau, Pinnacle and Skye Series. Only a few homes in the Pinnacle Series remain and sales have been brisk. In addition, Lennar is currently selling its limited collection of Chateau Series Model Homes, so interested homebuyers should act quickly.
Some of the homes from Lennar feature a dedicated home office ideal for today’s work-from-home dynamic. The home offices provide a separate space perfect for quiet concentration and remote dealings via video-conference calls with business colleagues. Then, to celebrate at the end of a busy workday, your stylish in-home bar is just steps away. One forward-thinking and very popular design in Lennar’s Skye Series, called Solstice, offers the homebuilder’s Next Gen® The Home Within A Home® design. The single-story design offers a main home and an attached private suite—making it two homes in one. The concept presents great flexibility with your loved ones living close by—but with plenty of privacy.
One new collection from Lennar—Coronet—is selling now with models opening in the next month. Lennar’s brand-new series, Clementine, will be making its debut at Riverstone this fall.
One of Riverstone’s newest builders—Woodside Homes—is bringing its Ovation and Encore new-home collections to Riverstone’s Town Center District. A total of ten new floorplans meet four distinctive architectural styles, available in your choice of Bungalow, Farmhouse, Craftsman or Modern Prairie.
But customization is perhaps the one thing homebuyers love most about Woodside Homes. The builder’s Envision Design Platform lets buyers customize their living space with their own personal style and touches—helping to transform a house into a home.
Crown Homes—a local builder whose elegant simplicity speaks for itself—is now selling in the community’s Lodge District neighborhood with the introduction of Estrella at Riverstone, a brand-new collection of spacious single-family residences on large lots up to 10,000 square feet in size. Like all Crown Homes-built residences, the homes of Estrella have many features and energy-saving innovations that come standard. High ceiling height is another hallmark of the homes, a design attribute that adds an open, airy feeling and a greater sense of everyday spaciousness.
Affordability is a big plus with the Estrella Series. With prices starting in the low $300,000s, homebuyers—especially first timers—can make the move to home ownership and begin building home equity with an easy monthly payment that’s comparable to what many people pay each month in rent.
Located within the new Town Center residential district, Harvest at Riverstone from Bonadelle Neighborhoods offers a collection of two-story, single-family homes featuring four unique and innovative Legacy Series floorplans, which range in size from 1,209 to 1,579 square feet. A choice of three different exterior elevations is offered.
The smart, energy-efficient interiors offer open, airy designs to draw in abundant natural light. Many of the residences also boast balconies and wrought iron staircases. All Harvest homes feature covered patios ideal for gathering and entertaining as well as kitchens with breakfast bars with sinks—exemplifying some of the ways Bonadelle Neighborhoods builds value into every home.
A much-loved local homebuilder with a loyal following and more than 70 years of experience in the Central Valley, the Bonadelle family has built thousands of beautiful new residences of rich character and great value that owners are proud to call “Home Sweet Home.”
A total of 12 Model Homes are now open at Riverstone and at least 6 more are anticipated to be opening in the near future. All homebuilders at Riverstone are following strict COVID-19 protocols to ensure a safe homebuying experience, which includes regular cleaning of sales centers. Model Home tours are available by appointment and facemasks are required.
In addition, the overall community of Riverstone continues to keep the safety of residents and guests its top priority as well with the routine sanitizing of park playground equipment and areas of The Lodge recreation center.
Situated in the heart of the region’s path of growth, Riverstone—when complete—will total approximately 6,578 single-family, attached and multi-family homes. Coming soon is the one-million-square-foot Riverwalk mixed-use lifestyle retail destination. Amenities at Riverstone include walkable neighborhoods, parks and open space, a dog park, a sustainable water supply and The Lodge community clubhouse with resort-style swimming pools, a trainer-designed fitness center, demonstration kitchen, Gear Barn, outdoor gathering spaces with firepits, and ongoing monthly activities such as self-defense classes, book clubs, arts and crafts, specialty meal cooking classes and more. Future amenities are anticipated to include hiking and biking trails, a community farm and the on-site Stone Creek Elementary school belonging to the award-winning Golden Valley Unified School District.
