The Nice Model at Trilogy at Rice Ranch

Central Coast homebuyers know exactly what they’re looking for in a great Californian home, and for superior design and lifestyles in Santa Barbara County, they turn to Trilogy at Rice Ranch. From quality home construction, to the sense of community and floor plan designs, homebuyers can rest easily knowing Trilogy has thought of everything to make their dream home perfect.

Living in a Trilogy Active Lifestyle Home

Nice_Montecito_mediumWelcome to The Nice!

The Nice features unique and outstanding architectural touches throughout the entire home and is one of Rice Ranch’s newest floor plans.

Starting from the mid $400’s, this floor plan features the ultimate in sophistication and functionality. The intentional and well-thoughtout design maximizes The Nice’s 1,939 sq. ft. with bedrooms placed on opposite sides of the house to afford guests peace and privacy. For those who want to escape the second story is equipped with an optional loft, great for an office area or game room.

The indoor touches of this new floor plan are divine, but what makes The Nice truly unique is how it incorporates the outdoors. Rice Ranch believes outdoor living is a vital part of the Trilogy active lifestyle, which is why the spacious great room in The Nice comes with optional rolling glass walls that slide back to reveal a beautiful outdoor area.

With these versatile walls, homeowners can choose to bring the outdoors in and indoors out while seamlessly expanding the livable area of the home.

SheaXero – The Best in Energy Efficiency

The Nice is also outfitted as a SheaXero – No Electric Bill Home™, allowing homeowners to live green without drastically changing their lifestyle.

Over the next decade, the first 1,000 SheaXero homes already sold will save 84,767,552 lbs. of carbon dioxide. That’s equivalent to planting 720,000 trees, or filling Central Park 30 times.

SheaXero homeowner, Barbara Kurowski, was thrilled that Trilogy is also passionate about advocating for environmental stewardship. “We were ecstatic about having a green home. We knew this was the type of lifestyle that we wanted to commit to. We wanted to live green, so SheaXero was a determining factor for us.”

SheaXero homes produce as much energy as they use through a large solar power system and 14 energy-efficient features. For homeowners, that means: No electric bills. No extra charge. No kidding.

Tom Giangreco, SheaXero homeowner at sister community, Monarch Dunes, said SheaXero has changed their lives. “Thanks to SheaXero, our electric bills are very small. The last bill we got was $4.58. We’re paying so little in electricity, we actually have credit at Pacific Gas & Electric.”

For a limited time, Trilogy at Rice Ranch is including SheaXero features in all of their new homes at no extra cost.
