Lennar celebrates 10 years of Next Gen – The Home Within A Home

Ten years ago, Lennar Phoenix debuted their revolutionary design: Next Gen® – The Home Within A Home®. At the time, the U.S. Census Bureau reported that nearly a third of Americans were “doubling up,” with two or more adult generations living together and under the same roof. As one of the nation’s leading homebuilders, Lennar sought to address this growing trend and created a floorplan for how people choose to live. Next Gen is a design that incorporates two homes under one roof – a main home with an attached private suite with its own separate entrance, living area with kitchenette, bedroom, bathroom, laundry and often a garage attached to the main home.

Starting with one Next Gen design, over 15,000 Next Gen homes have been sold nationwide and plenty in the bustling greater Austin area. Now with multiple Next Gen designs available, Lennar’s game changing plan can accommodate a variety of needs that go beyond multigenerational living. This completely flexible unit is ideal for aging parents, as well as boomerang kids, home schooling, a home office and other distinctive needs. The possibilities for how you can utilize the suite are truly endless and help make homeowner’s lives better.

“It’s been a decade since we debuted our Next Gen home and this design is still as important as ever. In today’s environment, with even more homeowners working from home, the Next Gen suite has been key to providing additional flexible workspace,” said Charlie Coleman, Division President for Lennar.

Every Next Gen home also showcases Lennar’s signature Everything’s Included® program that makes the homebuying process much simpler by incorporating the new home features and upgrades todays buyers want in their dream home as standard. Enjoy stainless steel appliances, kitchen countertops, designer-selected cabinetry, energy-efficient technology, home automation and much more at no extra cost.
