In Stapleton’s newest neighborhood, tour a home collection that has space for when parents come to stay, or a kid returns home.

Stapleton has always been a place to see cutting-edge home designs – and today you can be there when the latest example arrives in Stapleton’s new Willow Park East neighborhood. Lennar Homes’ Generations collection homes are family-sized designs that accommodate novel living arrangements that real families are exploring in today’s market – say, grandparents who come for extended stays with their grandkids; or an older parent who moves in; or a ‘boomerang kid’ who returns home.
Lennar has already had great success with its ‘NextGen’ designs in neighborhoods all around the Denver area, and that success is likely to be redoubled at Stapleton, Denver’s most popular master-planned community, where families get unprecedented parks, trails, neighborhood shopping, good schools, and recreation centers. The grand opening of the Legacy model is today – but Lennar already has buyers signing on for these: one of them a family with kids who love the support they get from Grandma and Grandpa, who will get their own apartment-like suite as part of the design – a living room, bedroom with private bath, stackable laundry, and kitchenette with sink, fridge and convection oven.
