Lennar’s Crest floorplan, featured at Encore at Victory in the masterplanned Verrado community, recently won Co-Home of the Year in the Active Adult Community category during the HBACA Major Achievements in Merchandising Excellence Awards (MAME).
“We are so appreciative that our peers recognized our Crest floorplan with this honor,” said Alan Jones, Division President for Lennar Arizona. “We aimed to create a home that was not only beautiful, functional and flexible, but would also resonate with empty nesters and other homebuyers whose lives and home-shopping styles are changing.”
Lennar designed the Crest floorplan specifically for homebuyers age 55 and beyond. The 1,991 square foot single-story home features two-bedrooms, two-bathrooms, a den and side courtyard that expands the feeling of outdoor space and light. If buyers prefer, the courtyard can be turned into a living room. In addition, the 16-foot bi-fold patio doors on the rear of the home make the covered patio feel like an expansion of the great room – offering the best of indoor-outdoor living.
Lennar re-entered the active adult market after a 12-year hiatus when they were invited to be among a select list of homebuilders for the Victory active adult neighborhood. Victory is nestled within the Buckeye masterplanned community of Verrado, a DMB development.
Bridget Niehus of Pennsylvania had planned to buy at another active adult community in the area. But once she saw the Lennar models, there was no turning back. “It was the opening day of Victory and when I saw the Lennar homes, the homesites, the price and the included features, I was sold,” said Niehus.
Niehus selected the Crest plan on a view homesite, calling her husband Wayne later to tell him what she had done. With two sons in the Valley, being close to family is a highlight. Living at Victory gives Niehus and her husband plenty of time with their five grandchildren in the area. “Lennar made it so easy to make this choice, especially with their Everything’s Included® commitment,” she noted.
All Lennar homes, including the Crest at Encore in Victory, are equipped with a comprehensive and expandable CAT 6 structured wiring to virtually future-proof home technology needs, along with a home security and monitoring system. Lennar also embraces energy-efficiency with energy saving features like motion sensor water faucets at kitchen sinks, radiant roof barriers to minimize heat transfer and energy saving appliances. These features and more are included at no extra cost with Lennar’s Everything’s Included® program.
Residents of Victory at Verrado enjoy the community pool, Verrado Golf Club, shopping and restaurants in nearby downtown Verrado. The community features multiple parks, 21 miles of hiking and biking trails, clubs and various events held throughout the year. The Victory Club is expected to open later this year with plans to include a movement studio, pickleball courts, yoga lawn, Life Performance training center, tennis, pools, trails, restaurants and more.
