For home owners who are about to close on a Sorrento home, I recommend a trip to City Hall. Gregory Shreeve is a tremendous resource for everyone in the City of Dublin and is committed to helping every home owner and home buyer. He has an open-door policy, so appointments are recommended but not necessary!
Thank you so much for the correction! It's hard to know exactly how the floorplan looks, since there is no finished model, and the dashed line in the floorplan draft on the web is misleading. I see now that the third parking spot elevated the livingroom area, such that the level is not split.
On an unrelated note, I just mailed in my ballot approving the necessary changes to the CC&R, so the Firenze homes at Sorrento may qualify for the FHA program.
1. Capannori's livingroom and diningroom are on the same level, but Rome's livingroom and diningroom are split.
2. Capannori's master closet is inside the master bathroom, but none of Rome's closets is near any source of moisture.
3. Capannori is a true flat, where the garage is on the same level as the kitchen and livingroom.
4. Rome has a nice circular foyer and a covered terrace.
5. Capannori's loft is smaller and does not have a bathroom.
It is really tough to say which floorplan is better and will retain value. If you look at just the number of units per building, Capannori seems to have an advantage, but I think Rome's curb appeal is better. The Capannoris, because it does not have a covered entry, looks really out of place at Siena.
