Lennar Introduces Multi-Generational Homes to Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS -- One of the newest trends in the housing industry is now coming to Lennar’s Madison Grove in Providence and will soon be coming to many Lennar communities across the Valley – the comeback of multi-generational living.

Lennar has already seen tremendous interest from the public since they introduced this concept in other areas and is beyond excited to be the first homebuilder to bring this “never before seen” floorplan to Las Vegas. Extended family who live together has made a major resurgence to American living, this new trend of multi-generational living has encouraged Lennar to design a home that allows extended family to liveall together in one home – except with separate living spaces.

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,” said Jeremy Parness, division president for Lennar Las Vegas.

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,” said Parness. “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 needs.”

The private suite portion on the first floor of this plan includes a separate entrance, living space, kitchenette with gourmet appliances and stainless steel sink, private bedroom, full bath, included washer and dryer, one-bay garage and an intimate outdoor living space with barbeque stub. Plus, 42” maple cabinetry and upper crown molding are included as standard. Lennar designed this unique floorplan to be incorporated into the main home 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.
