First-time home buyer Sandra McKenzie couldn't be happier. Her new Shea home at Reflections at RiverPark in Oxnard is, in her words, “perfect.”


Sandra selected Reflections' Residence One because it has “the perfect amount of space for one person,” and she liked the fact that all the main living areas – great room, dining room, kitchen and two bedrooms – are on a single level. And the home’s floor plan feels much larger,” she said, “because the kitchen and great room flow together, the hallway is wide and the ceilings are tall...It just feels like a big place. And when I have guests over, the low counter with bar stools offers added seating for dining.”


The home's two-car attached garage also offered an added benefit. “I only have one car,” Sandra explained, “so I can use the extra space for my workout equipment.”


For Sandra, the timing was also perfect. “With today's low prices and historic low interest rates, Reflections fit both my lifestyle and my budget,” she said.


As someone who had never purchased a home before, Sandra was a bit intimidated at first, but the Shea Homes team quickly put her at ease. “Every member of the team, from sales to mortgage to customer service, has been fantastic and so helpful in walking me through the process,” she said.


Reflections' uniquely designed two-story attached homes measure approximately 1,338 to 1,475 square feet, including up to four bedrooms and two and one-half baths plus a covered porch or balcony and a two-car garage. Varying plans feature a versatile loft or a gourmet kitchen island, and every residence is enhanced by fine appointments, including granite kitchen countertops and European Thermafoil cabinets in a choice of three colors. Prices start in the mid $200,000s.


Reflections joins with Shea Homes' Meridian and Boardwalk to offer numerous opportunities for families to enjoy all the attractions that make RiverPark Oxnard's premier master-planned community: new schools, fun-filled parks, popular stores and restaurants, abundant recreation and family entertainment.


Starting in the high $200,000s, Meridian's two-story attached homes range from approximately 1,301 to 1,980 square feet, with up to four bedrooms, two to three baths and a side-by-side two-car garage.  The highlight of these floor plans is the fact that all of the homes are end units, which allow natural light to extend throughout the homes.  Some of the floor plans offer an enclosed courtyard that extends living areas outdoors, while Plan One features two balconies for outdoor enjoyment. One plan features a downstairs bedroom, and many homes offer driveways for added off-street parking or car-washing.


Boardwalk presents spacious two-story courtyard residences that are ideal for young families. With prices beginning in the high $200,000s, the homes extend from approximately 1,758 to 2,162 square feet and encompass up to five bedrooms and three baths, and varying plans take on the added dimension of a master-suite retreat, bonus room or secluded study. One plan features a downstairs bedroom with a full bathroom. Touches of luxury extend throughout the homes, from granite kitchen countertops to stainless steel appliances.


RiverPark's extensive array of community amenities includes eight inviting parks that offer recreation opportunities ranging from tennis and basketball courts to children's playgrounds. The community's planned town center, The Collection at RiverPark, will encompass approximately 600,000 square feet of lifestyle retailers, restaurants and entertainment when it opens in fall 2010. “I can't wait to walk to the new Whole Foods market,” Sandra beamed.


Children can walk or bicycle to one of two brand-new schools within RiverPark. Rio Del Mar Elementary and Rio Vista Middle School are both just a short distance from the Shea Homes neighborhoods.
