As one of the nation’s leading builders, Lennar understands that dual living situations are a growing trend, with more than 50 million Americans living in multi-generational homes — typically defined as three generations together under one roof. As a response to this trend, Lennar introduced its Next Gen – The Home Within A Home line of homes designed to accommodate these families. Right now, Lennar Sacramento offers Next Gen homes at 11 communities across five different cities.
“We’ve had great success with our Next Gen design and love to see so many happy families finding their perfect fit in one of our unique multi-generational floor plans,” said Laura Kilgore, Director of Marketing. “These are truly unlike anything you’ve seen from other builders, they are not dual master suites!”
Since they were introduced in 2011, Lennar’s Next Gen homes have allowed extended families to live all in one place without sacrificing privacy. These unique home designs include an attached private suite that comes with a separate entrance, bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and laundry area, and in some cases a private one-car garage. A lockable door that connects the Next Gen suite to the interior of the main home allows for as much privacy from or direct access to both areas that each situation requires.
“We’ve seen so many different family types benefit from living in our multi-generational homes,” Kilgore said. “Sometimes it’s a family with young kids whose live-in grandparents act as full time nannies. Other times it’s families with young adults still living at home, or families with children who have special needs. Next Gen homes are all about keeping these families together in a functional environment, all under one roof.”
