The Next Gen home offers multi-generational families a private suite that includes a bedroom, kitchenette and full bathroom. The suite has a separate front entrance and one into the main house.
It was first introduced to the Fresno market in October 2011 to fit the changing demographics of buyers and has quickly become a best selling product for the national builder.
There are now five Next Gen floor plans. The two newest models include the 2,600-square-foot Omnilliant, a single-story, four bedroom, three bathroom, three-car garage home. The second is the Revelation, the first model to have a two-bedroom suite in a 3,404-square-foot, two-story home with three to four bedrooms, three ½ bathrooms and a three-car garage.
“There are so many uses for this concept,” said Susan Wilke, vice president of sales and marketing. “Grandma can have her own space. Or maybe it’s your teenagers abode when he starts college or returns from college.”
The plans are available at Elderberry on the Bluffs which celebrates its grand opening from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
