It’s awards season at Shea Homes® and we have more good news to share …
Not long after receiving the 2019 MAME Builder of the Year Award, Shea Homes was honored at the PCBC Closing Ceremonies & Gold Nugget Awards Presentation in San Francisco, where Azure Paradise Valley was selected from among the Award of Merit winners as the Grand Award winner in two categories: Residential Detached Collection of the Year and Best Single Family Detached Home for 3,500 to 4,500 square feet for Residence 1.
Gold Nugget Awards is the largest and most prestigious competition of its kind in the nation, drawing entries from across the United States and around the world. This international competition honors design and planning achievements in community and home design, green-built housing, site planning, commercial, retail, mixed-use development, and specialty housing categories. With winners chosen from over 600 global entries, competition was fierce, we couldn’t be prouder of our team for coming home with the Grand Award.
Receiving the prestigious honor of being named the residential detached collection of the year is a testament to the talent and efforts of our team, which includes both the Shea architecture team and our partner PHX Architecture.
Azure Paradise Valley is the first luxury community to be offered under the Shea Signature brand. Located at Indian Bend Road and Mockingbird Lane in the shadows of Camelback and Mummy Mountains, this exclusive gated community will include 66 homes on 23 acres. Shea’s architecture team designed the residences of Azure in collaboration with the award-winning PHX Architecture. With base pricing from $1.9 - $2.9 million, residences feature transitional architecture with open floorplans, open riser staircases, and rolling walls of glass that offer a seamless flow between outdoor and indoor living spaces. These homes are designed for homeowners to maximize enjoyment of the available water features and stunning desert mountain views. Modern design is balanced with traditional elements like clean, cut stone and light, bright colors.
Residence 1 is a completely unique home design, with an open-air courtyard in the heart of the main level. With rolling walls of glass on every side, the whole of the main level can be opened up, connecting kitchen, master suite, and great room all at once. Take the elevator to the lower level where you’ll find a spacious entertainment room and expansive junior master suite, complete with a full bath and walk-in closet, and cleverly designed to maximize natural light. Step into the backyard and marvel at the firepit and lounge that are set into the luxurious pool that meanders across the length of the backyard, right up to the additional guest/pool casita.
In total, Azure Paradise Valley offers eight meticulously crafted and highly amenitized floor plans with two to five-bedroom configurations ranging from 2,974 up to 6,800 square feet. Additional information about Azure, Paradise Valley is available at AzurePV.com.
