(PHOENIX) – Gehan Homes has won “Best Of Design” on Houzz®, the leading platform for home remodeling and design.

The Gehan Homes neighborhood at Cadence in East Mesa will include 54 one- and two-story family homes with lot sizes of 53 ft. x 125 ft. and six floor plans, each with a range of options including welcoming front porches and open floor plans as their signature architecture. The neighborhood will be just steps away from resort-style pools, parks, a fitness center and the Community Center.

“Our front porches naturally complement the community layout and culture, and fit perfectly with the tree-lined streets, short blocks and separated sidewalks that encourage neighborhood conversations and connections. Many homebuyers remember this style of living from growing up—and are eager to recreate it in quality communities with fresh amenities,” said Mark Moskal, division president, Gehan. “The open floor plans create a variety of formal and informal spaces that cater to Gehan families’ active lifestyles.”

Gehan Homes also include energy-saving features that work together to reduce energy consumption. These features are included at no additional cost, meaning homeowners don’t have to choose between performance & affordability.

Moskal added, “This neighborhood will feature new floor plans based on our most popular features and feedback from our buyers, is within a great school district and offers easy access to major employers in the East Valley.”

Gehan Homes is currently ranked the 12th largest private builder in the U.S. with a solid reputation for building the highest quality homes for over 25 years. The Texas builder has been in the Arizona market for six years.
