What's the Neighborhood Like?
The Dunes in Marina is a brand new community with development just getting started. The neighborhood will be full of brand new construction homes, which is not an easy thing to find in Monterey County or anywhere along coastal California for that matter. The homes you would expect to find for sale in The Dunes are constructed by national home builder, Shea Homes who is known for building master planned communities. There are various floor plans to choose from in two distinct communities inside The Dunes; Sea House at the Dunes and Surf House at The Dunes. Although the neighborhood names would lead you to believe these homes are located on the water, they are actually on the east side of Highway 1 located near a shopping center and a cinema. In addition there are parks, walking trails and bike paths planned as well.
Weather at The Dunes in Marina will be typical Central Coast of California type weather with coastal fog and wind mixed with sunshine and mild temperatures year round. It is one of the reasons people love living on the Monterey Bay!
Sea House at The Dunes
The Sea House community at The Dunes is the more affordable of the two communities and features “duets” or homes that share one wall with a neighboring unit. There are 4 open concept floor plans each with the living space on the lower level and the sleeping quarters on the upper level. They come in 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathroom configurations on up to a 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom layout and increase in size from a cozy 1523square feet to a comfortable 1896 square feet. Each has a 2 car garage, a powder room on the main level as well as a laundry room. Introductory pricing starts at $489,000 for Plan 1 and ratchets up to $539,000 for the largest Sea House plan (Plan 4).
Surf House at The Dunes
If you are looking for a brand new detached single family home, you will want to start your search at Surf House at the Dunes. Surf House has 3 plans to choose from and each has three different elevations or exterior styles available. Plan 1 and plan 3 are open concept and plan 2 is more traditional with the kitchen between the dining and living rooms although it too is fairly open. All of the living space is located on the main level and the upper level is where all of the bedrooms are located. There are no main level bedrooms in any of the current floor plans which can be an issue for some buyers. The smallest Surf House plan is Plan 1 with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a spacious 1928 square feet. The largest plan in the Surf House community is Plan 3 with 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and 2158 square feet.
