Some might say Stepping Stone’s festive streak is simply a function of the fun, friendly people who tend to move there. (At Stepping Stone, there’s a great mix of young couples, families, and empty nesters all eager to connect.) Or it could be the very active HOA that’s always cooking up special events where neighbors get to know each other. All true, but there’s another factor at work: Stepping Stone offers perfect places for entertaining, both at the Lantern House and in residents’ own homes.
The Lantern House is a beautiful gathering place where residents not only meet for community events, but host private parties. Summer pool bashes are a popular choice, thanks to the competition-sized pool and sundeck. But winter holiday parties are just as easy with a lounge, rooms of assorted sizes, a kitchen with bar seating, and a dining area that accommodates 75 people. (Residents, to reserve space, log on to the Stepping Stone community website www.advancehoa.com or contact Kimberly Aiken at 303.482.2213 ext. 500 or email her at email@example.com.)
That said, Stepping Stone homeowners have some amazing places to entertain right in their own homes. Visit any of the model homes and you may find yourself dreaming up the guest list for your housewarming party. Whether you lean toward Shea or Richmond homes, you’ll find a home designed for great entertaining.
In Shea’s Discovery Collection, the 3507 model keeps everyone connected at your get-togethers. The kitchen, with island seating, flows right into the dining area, great room, and a cozy game-playing area. No one gets left out of the conversation, even if they’re prepping the meal.
The kitchen is the heart of the home and where the party always ends up anyway. So when guests walk into the 4006 model, they immediately feel right at home, welcomed by an inviting kitchen and dining room with fireplace.
The 5002 model boasts an upstairs loft perfect for a secondary entertainment area. An ideal place to catch the Broncos—or Frozen (again), depending on the age of your guests.
A dream come true for party throwers who love to cook, the 5004 offers an exceptionally spacious kitchen with a meal bar and large walk-in pantry so you can stock up on gourmet goodies.
Richmond Homes’ two models are equally well-suited for families who love to entertain. The Seth plan’s elegant dining room is ideal for more formal occasions, while the flow from kitchen to great room keeps the mood casual.
In the Cynthia plan, a butler’s pantry lends a bit of sophistication to serving your guests. And a beautifully finished basement can be your headquarters for games, movies, snacks, and beverages.
Parties at the Lantern House, parties at home… Stepping Stone has no shortage of places to entertain guests. Let Shea Homes and Richmond American Homes help you discover your own party headquarters today.
