I stopped by Standard Pacific's community at Schaefer Ranch last week. They are almost sold out but some great homes are still available. Why? Because they deliberately held the best for last.
The Lassen model is a 4 bedroom based home with options for the fourth bedroom as a master retreat or the loft as a fifth bedroom. The home consists of a very well laid out 3164 square feet. There is a suite down, the great room that all buyers desire and a well appointed kitchen with an island.
Standard Pacific has built in some really nice features that make these homes extremely user friendly. One of my favorites is the built in valet. They have left an alcove between the garage and the home and have filled it with space to store all of that stuff that normally ends up strewn around the house. Put your jacket here. Put your keys here. Keep the kids soccer boots here.
I love that Standard Pacific has taken a look at how people live their lives and has created accouterments to make life easier.
The natural light in the model I saw was amazing. Every room was bright and airy. The home, while quite ample felt much larger than it was.
Every home has the option for a loft at the top of the stairs. Standard Pacific calls this a "flex room". I like it as it gives a more intimate area to be together. The great room with it's high ceilings large windows and openness provides a great space to entertain but when it's all said and done, you can head upstairs and have some quality time with those you really care about.
The master had his and her closets, a bathroom as big as my first apartment. Another great touch is the location of the second and third bedroom, which is a goodly distance from the master which contributes to the serenity of the master suite. Those bedrooms have a Jack and Jill bathroom.
This home starts at $1,159,900 without options. I really liked the location and all homes in Schaefer Ranch fill to Dublin's Distinguished School system.
