July 15, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Shea Homes, the nation's largest privately held homebuilder, opened three new model homes in Riviera, a condominium neighborhood in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte. This new home community offers maintenance-free living, a community pool, plus cabana and an ideal location, just minutes from I-485 and South Charlotte, North Carolina.

Three new models, the Solana, Livingston and Tahoma, are decorated and open seven days a week. The Solana is a trendy second-story flat, the Livingston offers two bedrooms, each with a private bath, and the Tahoma is a master-down home, with loft plus two additional bedrooms upstairs. Prices range from the $130's to $180's.

All homes include attached garages and private patio or terrace. Every unit is an end unit, with abundant windows. Homes purchased earlier in the construction phase may be personalized by the homeowner in the Shea Homes Design Studio. Granite countertops, hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances are all available at Riviera.

This area of Mecklenburg County is highly prized, being just over 2 miles from shopping and dining in Ballantyne. Easy access to Providence Road and Rea Road means shopping and dining in the SouthPark and Stonecrest areas of Charlotte is just minutes away.

Michele Scott, Director of Sales and Marketing at Shea Homes, says, "Riviera is an oasis for people looking for maintenance-free living in an ideal location. 6 different plans offer multiple configurations, and the added bonus of having an attached garage and community pool make this an unbeatable package! We are very excited to be opening these new models; they are decorated and will appeal to today's buyers, with updated finishes and colors."
