How today’s new homes are designed for empty nesters
With empty nesters making up an increasing share of buyers in the new home market, homebuilders are taking notice, designing plans that enhance and celebrate the newfound freedoms and opportunities that come at this stage of life.
Here are 6 features from Rancho Sienna’s low-maintenance new patio collection from Sitterle Homes that are perfect for empty nesters. You can see these features in the San Saba, Sitterle’s beautifully decorated model home in Rancho Sienna, and also in other Sitterle plans offered here.
One level of luxury. After years of climbing stairs, many empty nesters are ready for a one-story home that has it all on one level. The San Saba offers approximately 2,500 square feet of luxury all on one level. If you would like a two-story home, Sitterle also offers plans with upstairs space.
Outdoor living. Many homesites in Rancho Sienna’s patio home neighborhood offer scenic park and greenbelt views, and spacious covered patios help you enjoy outdoor living, whether you have a scenic Hill Country view or a private backyard oasis. The stone fireplace and outdoor kitchen make this an inviting year ‘round living space.
Casual, open living. Homebuyers are moving away from formal living spaces and toward open, casual gathering areas. With its wide-open great room and kitchen area, the San Saba is perfect example of this trend. The cathedral ceiling with rustic beams and pendant lighting add warmth and classic elegance to this area. The unique L-shaped island offers plenty of space for food prep, seating and storage.
Luxury retreat. With its trendy shiplap wall and sunny box window, the San Saba’s master bedroom offers a relaxing retreat with natural neutrals and warm wood furnishings. The luxurious master bath has a walk-in shower and a soothing spa tub.
Home office. Whether you work from home or just want a quiet spot to read, the San Saba’s study is both functional and luxurious. The French doors allow you to close out the noise while maintaining a feeling of openness. The deep window ledge is ideal for displaying books and collectibles.
The luxury of low maintenance. While not technically a home feature, the yard maintenance included in this Rancho Sienna neighborhood is ideal for residents who want to “lock and leave” and travel for extended periods. It’s also great for residents who want to enjoy as much time as possible at Rancho Sienna’s 100+ acres of parks, trails and natural open spaces.
