Before they found and fell in love with their The Home Within a Home dream home, Bud and Sharron Susnick lived in a townhome next to their daughter Charity. Charity moved next door to be close to them, but found that many expenses they were both paying should be shared.
“I’m an only child, so I’ve always been concerned about what happens to my parents as they age,” said Charity.
So when Charity heard about Lennar’s The Home Within A Home®, she knew it was something they had to see for themselves. When they visited, they found it not only met their needs, it better suited their lifestyle.
“I liked the idea that we would be together,” said Sharron. “When she told us that she’d heard of these homes, I thought this could be a possibility—and it worked.”
The Susnick’s wanted a living situation that emphasized togetherness but allowed for privacy when desired. When they visited the The Home Within a Home® plan, which includes an attached private suite complete with separate entrance, bedroom, living room, kitchenette and laundry area, they knew this home was exactly what they were looking for.
“There are times when they want their space or I want mine. We wanted to live together but not be on top of one another all the time, and that’s what makes The Home Within a Home® work so well,” said Charity. “There’s space for everybody.”
In The Home Within a Home, The Susnicks found an affordable dual living situation that enhanced their sense of family togetherness.
“When we came to look at the home, it just instantly felt like this was a home we could live in and enjoy,” said Charity. “I love the sense of warmth.”
“It feels like home,” Sharon agreed, while Bud could hardly believe they’ve found a home that fits so well. “I keep pinching myself because it’s just such a great place,” Bud said.
With such a huge trend in multigenerational living, Lennar designed The Home Within a Home model to address American living’s changing needs.
