One of the newest trends in the housing industry is now coming to Lennar’s Bonaire community in Maple Grove on Saturday, September 8th – the comeback of multi-generational living. Be the first to tour these buzzed about new homes!
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 Minnesota. 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 live all 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,” stated Bill Burgess, Division President.
Having more generations living together can be beneficial for everyone involved. Studies show that one of out of six people already lives in a multi-generational household and that by 2020 there will be an overwhelming trend for this type of living space.
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,” added Burgess. “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.”
Each NEXT GEN suite includes a separate entrance, living room, kitchenette, one-car garage, laundry and private outdoor living space. Lennar designed this unique floorplan to be incorporated into the main home floorplan 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.
