Multigenerational 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.
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.
P.S. Happy Pink Saturday with a "Van Gogh" rendition of some of the delightful pink flowers I spotted there. My senior mom could surely have some serious gardening fun there!
