If you are a Northview at Stone Butte homeowner or soon will be, this blog is for you!
With Labor Day approaching, it’s time to plan your weekend celebrations, and most importantly, where those get-togethers are going to be! With ample space and modern features, Shea’s Northview at Stone Butte homes are a great place for a Labor Day gathering. We’ve compiled some tips to maximize your Northview home to impress your friends.
How do you plan to feed your guests? Are you catering in food or having a potluck? Perhaps you’re brave enough to cook it all yourself! Regardless of your method for filling stomachs, you’ll need the space to lay out each dish, serving utensil, and your décor. Maximize the party space with your Northview oversized island, which provides ample counterspace for food prep and serving. We recommend placing your food dishes on the back countertop to create a self-serve line for guests to go through. Start with plates and silverware on one side and in order put your main course next, followed by sides and salads, then finish with dessert. If you have extra dishes that can’t fit on that one countertop, extend the line to your spacious island.

Space and functionality are what these homes are all about. Your Northview at Stone Butte home is designed to maximize the living areas for hosting guests. With Shea’s unique open floor plans, you’ll never lack the space you need to entertain your friends and family. The kitchen flows into the adjacent dining room and great room, providing the opportunity to entertain comfortably while being near the food and drink. Remember to reserve ample seating for your guests as well. Allow access to bar stools at the island and all other seating that could be obstructed with decor.

Additionally, some Northview floor plans offer flex rooms. Consider having a designated “kids’ area” if you have families with young children coming over. Lay out games, crafts, or turn a movie on to make sure the little ones have a good time as well. You can worry less knowing they’re in their own space and not getting into trouble.
In addition to the seating in your great room and kitchen, Northview flexible floor plans are designed to broaden your hosting space with direct access to your outdoor patio. Just slide open your glass doors and instantly expand your party to your covered patio! We’re blessed here in Arizona with nine months of beautiful weather, it’s like having a “bonus room”!
What’s a party without some entertainment? At Northview, there’s no need to stay glued to the TV when you have 96-acres of gorgeous Arizona desert just outside your backyard. And, no home backs up to another in this neighborhood, so you can rest assured knowing you have some privacy for your gathering.
