“We are proud to move forward with our phase one development in Las Calinas,” said Robert Johnson, founder of H J Homes. “With the slowing economy, Las Calinas offers residents the perfect future home as it has very low homeowner’s association fees.

The Glendale, featuring the builder’s impressive Mediterranean elevation, combines contemporary features with classic architecture in its four bedroom, three and a half bathroom design. The home features a first-floor master suite, as well as a secondary suite that can easily serve as a home office, guest suite or children’s retreat. Accented with a full stucco exterior, a spacious three-car courtyard garage completes the beautiful design.

Upon entering the home, guests are greeted by the beautifully tiled floor in the foyer, along with ten-foot ceilings standard in two-story homes by H J Homes. The design continues to the heart of the home, where the family room creates an ideal gathering place for entertaining. A built-in niche is a unique feature in the family room with shelving and space for even the largest of televisions. The room also boasts a beautiful cathedral ceiling offered by H J Homes, with expansive views of the natural beauty of the community.

The kitchen features stunning granite countertops with tile backsplash, upgraded GE stainless steel appliances, 42-inch maple cabinetry with a detailed crown molding and a café area overlooking the backyard.
