Lennar is one of Stapleton builders that has not yet released lot information regarding their homes coming up soon in Stapleton’s “North End” neighborhood. That’s ok, now is your chance as a buyer to get ahead of the competition and figure out what you like so you’re ready when the lots release!
This post will tell you what you can expect from Lennar in North End and we wanted to make sure you were aware of their last few paired homes they have available in Beeler Park. (including one that’s ready for immediate move in!)
Lennar “Next Gen” Series: ($700k’s, Coming soon in “North End”)
Lennar will be offering their very popular “NextGen” home series in North End which is what they like to call a “home in a home”. It has all the attributes of a normal single family home but it also has an attached private unit that has everything needed for an additional family member to live there, such as a living room, kitchenette, laundry room, bedroom with walk in closet, bathroom and a private entrance!
For some context, here is a general map of North End so you know where it’s located within Stapleton and then here is a map that shows where the Next Gen lots will be within North End. (Zoom in on the part of the document that says “North End”)
It seems Lennar’s main target market with this product is people with an aging parent or set of parents who want to stay close but maintain some independence and privacy. As Lennar has built this product around the country they’ve discovered that people have found other great uses for this home in a home including:
- Home office (how nice to be close but have everything you need in your office)
- Nanny or Au Pair living quarters
- Teen hangout
- Special needs child or family member
- Man cave
- Craft room
Lennar has 4 floor plans in their Next Gen series that they developed specifically for Stapleton and our alley loaded lots. The 4 floor plans each come in one of 3 elevations, Prairie, Shingle or Craftsman. The homes are 3-4 bedrooms and range in size from 2,678 sf to 3,171 sf.
The plans have pretty open concept main levels for the most part, meaning the kitchens are open to living rooms and informal dining rooms in most cases. All of the plans have 3+ beds on the upper level which is appealing for families with young children. Each plan comes with an unfinished basement that has 9 foot ceilings and rough in plumbing but the builder does not offer a finished basement option. Each home has a patio outside but because of the size of the homes, and the standard 3 car garages, there is not much yard to speak of.
Here is a link to all 4 floor plans so you can check them out.
The prices of the homes will be in the lower $700k’s. The pricing and design center selection process with Lennar is very different than other builders so it’s worth explaining here so buyers go in with the right expectations.
Lennar includes much more in their standard inclusions than most other builders so there is way less for the buyers to choose from in the upgrade process. This isn’t to say they are better or worse than other builders, it’s just a different, more simplified way of doing things.
For example, all of these homes come with kitchen appliances (including refrigerator), air conditioning, fireplaces, granite in the kitchen and all bathrooms, 20 year prepaid solar lease, and 3 car garages standard. Most if not all of those would be upgrades with other Stapleton builders. Of course, you as the buyer are still paying for these via the higher base price.
Once you pick your Lennar home you will make some color selections on items like flooring, countertops, cabinets etc but it’s a much quicker process because there are not a lot of options to choose from compared to a normal design center full of options. So, if a simplified process that is less overwhelming to you is appealing this could be a good fit. If you like lots of choices, lots of different types of materials and customization within your home this will not be a good fit for you.
Here is Lennar’s “Everything’s Included” document if you want to check out the standard inclusions.
Paired Homes: (Priced in the high $400k’s, closing out sales in Beeler Park)

Of the homes in this series, the “Adorn” model is the last floor plan for sale. The Adorn 2 bed plan and the Adorn 3 bed plan (one bed in the basement) have private baths and there is a half bath on the main floor. Every home comes with a fully landscaped private side yard including a deck as well as air conditioning, agas fireplace, agas double oven, all window blinds, an attached two car garage and more.
