Many buyers are rethinking the open kitchen. On the one hand, the space is nice, on the other? Dirty dishes and a cluttered island. If you’re on Team Hide the Kitchen, we have great news, so is Lennar.
The builder’s Santa Cruz floor plan eschews the open kitchen, instead tucking it behind a wall offering a pass-through window with breakfast bar. It’s a refreshing difference that does not detract from the beauty of the home. The kitchen itself features designer cabinets, laminate countertops, recessed lighting and a GE appliance package. Easy clean floors are a bonus. A small breakfast nook off the kitchen is a private space for coffee or a getting caught up on work.
In fact, there are a lot of private spaces in this design including the generously sized primary suite. It is the only bedroom downstairs, turning it into a peaceful retreat while the kids are upstairs playing their Spotify playlists at full volume. The primary bath is lovely with a garden tub, linen cupboard and large walk-in closet.
The second floor sports a good-sized flex space that can be used as a media room, children’s playroom, game room, exercise room or den. In addition to three bedrooms, the laundry room is upstairs, so you won’t be lugging the kids’ laundry up and down the stairs.
When it comes to the outdoors, the Santa Cruz boasts a standard feature considered an upgrade by most builders — a front porch.
The Santa Cruz is one of six plans in Lennar’s NuHome collection. Homes in the series feature tucked-away kitchens, upstairs or downstairs primary suites and two-car garages. The Santa Cruz is priced from the $260s. Other homes in the collection are priced from the $230s to the $270s.
