Today’s new homes are built to modern trends, but the best also anticipate trends to create residences of long-lasting value. This is just one reason why the new Ventura homes at The Farm have become so popular. Sales have remained strong since the incredible Grand Opening, which hosted thousands of excited homebuyers. Single-family community Topa Topa is 70 percent sold out of its Phase One homes and residences in the master-planned community’s other three communities aren’t far behind.
Here are five trends you’ll see when you come to tour this latest offering from noted developer Williams Homes. Coincidentally (or not), they also represent five more reasons you’re going to want to live here at The Farm.
Tons of storage. Sleek countertops. Islands with eating bars. Stainless steel appliances. They’re some of today’s must-haves in kitchens, and, with a new Ventura home, you get the space you need and the amenities you want, without any of the work or expense involved in renovating. Another benefit: you won’t end up with a mismatched home because the kitchen has been done but the other gathering spaces still look out of date.
“Homeowners today want an open and thoughtfully designed kitchen that blends seamlessly with the rest of the home’s design aesthetic,” said Kerrie Kelly, Zillow Digs home design expert on Inman.
At The Farm, you’ll not only see new Ventura homes with well-amenitized kitchens, but fresh, fun, and fabulous materials and colors to inspire your move, like this Sespe Plan 2 kitchen and that show-stopping yellow range.
One of the great advantages to buying a new home at The Farm instead of an older homes is that the floorplans already reflect modern tastes. Buy an older home, and you may have to spend many thousands of dollars—not to mention many dozens of hours—breaking down walls and building up roof supports to get the look you want. And that’s just structural. If you want to actually make them pretty so they suit your taste, that’s going to cost you more—of both.
Whether your needs surround a ground-floor master, an additional bedroom to accommodate guests, or a multi-generation living situation, downstairs bedrooms are hot. At The Farm, you’ll find a downstairs bedroom in each floorplan of the three single-family communities, and the opportunity to option one instead of choosing a home office in Anacapa’s Plan 3. In some plans, like Olivas’ Plan 2 and 3, Topa Topa’s Plan 2 and 3, and Sespe’s Plan 3, the floorplan offers a convenient en-suite, giving buyers great flexibility for guests or older children. Topa Topa’s Plan 1 ups the ante with a single-story plan that has become one of The Farm’s most popular offerings among both young families and retirees.
Sespe at The Farm is the perfect example of new Ventura homes featuring floorplans that can be customized to meet the needs of buyers. The opportunity to personalize taps into homebuyers’ growing desire to express their taste in the way a home looks, but also customize its function.
A few of the optional features homebuyers can add in these semi-custom, executive homes include a loft and a home office. This community also offers a distinctive feature not often found in today’s homes; Plan 2 and 3 both feature an apartment over the garage that can be used as a private home office, an in-law suite, or a rental unit. Plan 2’s 410-square-foot studio space encompasses a living room, full kitchen and bath, and ample storage and closet space, with its own private yard and separate parking. In Plan 3, the apartment is a one-bedroom, 565-square-foot space with private living quarters including a large living area, full kitchen and bath, its own bedroom, and a separate entrance. Both apartments also have a laundry closet with hook-ups.
“With all of the innovations in outdoor living, there’s an excellent chance that you’re accessing your outdoor spaces more easily, too,” said New Home Source. “In many homes, a wall of glass panels pocket out of sight to create a wide-open transition between home and deck.”
That’s certainly true at The Farm. Olivas’ Plan 1 turns the space between the island kitchen and the garage into a desirable outdoor room. The idyllic outdoor spaces at Anacapa includes oversized porches and private decks. Sespe offers the ultimate examples of how to do indoor-outdoor living right, with a covered patio that extends the family room outward and another that expands out from the master suite in Plan 1. Plan 2’s large covered patio eliminates the separation between inside and out in the kitchen and breakfast nook, making al fresco dining a beautiful reality. In the innovative Plan 3, the unique configuration connects the gourmet kitchen and two-car garage with an oversized covered patio, creating an outdoor room perfect for entertaining or simply enjoying the ocean breezes.
