Jenamar began construction on Jubilee at Hawks Prairie in 2004, but the community was later acquired by Shea Homes in 2010. Upon completion, this community will have 944 homes. While this community was already impressive, the latest acquisition by Shea Homes has only added to this community’s desirability.

The five distinct floor plans of the Coastal Collection range from 1,586 to 1,922 square feet and offer two or three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a great covered patio. With the largest homes, the Estate Collection offers three floor plans, ranging from 2,180 to 2,445 square feet, and with two bedrooms plus den and two-and-a-half baths. The Shea3D Collection offers two models that range from 1,863 to 2,132 square feet of living space, two or three bedrooms, and two or two-and-a-half bathrooms. All styles in Shea Homes’ collections offer two-car garages, covered patios, and some have the option of adding on an additional patio space.

Before Shea Homes took over, Jenamar Homes offered 13 distinct floor plans, ranging from a cozy 1,277 to a grandiose 2,584 square feet, two or three bedrooms, two to three bathrooms, and attached two to three-car garages. The Jenamar homes are available for resale purchase only.
