The pool at the Country Creek Drive home in Orangevale next to Roseville CA is gorgeous per Kaye Swain REALTOR 500Multigenerational joys! I love visiting homes throughout the Roseville CA area. Especially when I can spot great ideas and options to share with y'all. That can give us both fresh tips and remind us of great ones from the past. 

Last week, I visited a lovely 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom home in WoodBridge Ranch. This particular home's address is in Orangevale California. BUT it is about a whopping .1 or .2 miles from the Roseville CA border. That's because this gorgeous, up-scale, master-planned community spans both Placer and Sacramento County! Part is in Roseville and part in Orangevale, CA.

This community has so many great homes with terrific multigenerational options. It includes a wide variety of single story homes. (I'm guessing there might be a few with a bedroom and bathroom/shower on the first floor as well. You can be sure I'll let you know if I spot any of those!

The home I visited was a single story ranch style with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on one side of the L shaped home. On the other side of the home there was 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom along with the laundry room (my senior mom would be in 7th heaven with that set-up :) ).

In between the bedrooms are a formal living room, dining room, family room, and a delightful kitchen with a "to-die-for" view of the gorgeous swimming pool surrounded by waterfalls. Beyond that was a lovely green and flowered back yard that backs up to a delightful seasonal creek. 

With your own park in the back yard of Country Creek Drive Orangevale you can have plenty of room for everyone under one roof per Kaye Swain REALTOR in Roseville CA

It's an awesome property with plenty of places for people to enjoy some privacy. That is something that is so vital for a multigenerational family who might feel like they are tripping over each other in a smaller home.

I especially appreciated the pocket doors in various parts of the home that don't take up too much room. They give a sense of seclusion accompanied by a quieter experience in the various rooms – another great help for a large extended family under one roof.

Another thing that can be a big help for large multigenerational families at WoodBridge Ranch are the great activity options right in the immediate area.   

There are two private parks including Lake Park – and yes, it is aptly named. Plus it is kept stocked with fish for catch and release enjoyment.  Playgrounds, a basketball court, a tennis court, a large baseball field with plenty of grass area, and picnic areas and BBQs all add to the many joys of living in the WoodBridge Ranch Community of homes.  There are biking, walking and jogging trails and even an equestrian center with dedicated horse trails. Those are needed as many of the homes, including this one, are zoned for having a horse! That's fun in general and could be especially helpful for those caring for someone of any age who would benefit from the many joys of horse therapy!

All in all, WoodBridge Ranch, in Roseville AND Orangevale CA, is a gorgeous master-planned community with so many great options for a variety of needs including multigenerational and aging in place options. I am guessing you could even find the occasional home for sale that includes a bedroom and a bathroom with a shower and/or tub on the first floor there.  And those 5 good ways are probably more, but they include great separation in the kitchen, pocket doors to provide quiet and privacy between kitchen-family area and formal living/dining area, one bedroom and bathroom alone on one side of the house, a huge back yard, a pool along with other areas to provide for plenty of room to spread out. And that doesn't even count the various extra activities in the area. Talk about your multigenerational joys in general and specifically with this sweet home.

Sweet Multigenerational & Aging in Place Home Options In West Roseville CA

SandwichINK Real Estate Information | Real Estate Info and News for Boomers, Seniors, and Other Multigenerational Caregivers

California palm tree with this lovely west Roseville home via Kaye Swain Real Estate AgentI have sweet kids and kids-in-law. I have a passel of grandkids I dote on, mostly from a distance nowadays. Plus my senior mom lives with me. Over the years I've had up to four generations living under my roof at one time. Nowadays, it's only two generations (my senior mom) and visits from the two other generations. They don't live with me, but I still want to have room for them when they come. Thus the two of us live in a three bedroom home with two bathrooms. And it has some great aging in place options including plenty of grab bars and accessible doors and hallways.

I don't have to househunt for us anymore but I still am constantly on the prowl, looking for those great multigenerational and aging in place options. This time, though, it's for my great real estate clients along with sharing interesting and useful ideas I spot with each of you, my dear readers. 

And yes! I do have one to share with you today. Over in West Roseville, CA there is a lovely 5 bedroom, 3 full bathroom, 3 car garage home. That 3 full bathroom is vital, which is why I wrote it that way. It means that even if it's a two-story home, which it is, the downstairs bathroom WILL be a full bathroom. And if there is a den/bedroom, which there is, you then have a bedroom and full bathroom combo for an elderly senior. Always a good thing to look for.

That gives families who are searching for homes for sale for themselves AND an elderly parent or two a good option. My senior mom and I have lived in a couple of those over the years and they've worked well. I always made sure there was a laundry room downstairs for her sake because – believe it or not – she actually LOVES doing laundry. If your senior parent could care less and you don't mind doing their laundry, then you could easily go with an up OR down laundry room. And may I say, those stairs make great FREE exercisers. I gained 5 pounds when I had a house with no stairs!

The nice thing about a multigenerational home being two stories is that it also gives some privacy separation, which can be a very good thing for keeping things peaceful. That definitely worked well for my own nuclear family when it was just mom, dad and the kids. It's even more useful, and needed, when it's parents, grandparents and kids. If it gets to noisy for the seniors, they can rest in their own room. The kids can head upstairs to read, do homework, etc. And all can get together to eat dinner in the huge great room / kitchen combo.

OR there is also a formal living room AND formal dining room area.

If twas me, I would probably set the front space as the formal dining room for those who prefer things a bit quieter with a table in the kitchen for the kids and those of us who tend to be a little bit louder (yes, sigh, that includes me – as my grandkids delight in and my senior mom occasionally and very sweetly points out. wink ) However y'all want to do it, in a house this size, you definitely would have the space to do it in. Looking at homes with higher square footage gives you more space for a bit more privacy for each of you. And generally speaking, two story houses are usually less expensive per squre foot than single story as they use less of the "foot print" of the whole property. Sweet!

According to the SacBee, "In 2005, the average lot size in the Sacramento region was approximately 7,500 square feet. Last year, the average lot size was less than 6,500 square feet, a reduction of almost 15 percent." Many of the brand new homes in West Roseville have even smaller lot sizes. But there are many homes in Roseville with larger lots, like this lovely home which has a generous 7,693 square foot lot. And those homes that are a few years older are often fully landscaped – many even have cement patios like this one. A lot of families are looking at the brand new homes a couple of miles further down the road, and they are, indeed, gorgeous as well. There are some outstanding multigenerational and aging in place options there too. But it is nice to see the back yard grass, cement, and sprinkler system are already installed. Also, you're a bit closer to existing stores, schools, and businesses. It's closer to the freeway onramps. And this particular neighborhood was built by Signature Homes around 2001 which means there is plenty of lovely and mature landscaping to provide shade in the summer and lovely colors in autumn and spring. It's also a good distance away from a couple of industrial plants that can occasionally concern some.
