Posted June 17, 2011

Your free time is precious and you want to make the most of it. If you live at Kingsbridge Townhomes in southwest Longmont, you can ride your bicycle, climb a mountain or just relax, without the hassle of yard maintenance or outdoor upkeep.

These new high-quality, energy-efficient townhomes are built by Boulder Creek Life and Home, pioneers in residential development for the “active lifestyle” homeowner. This well respected local builder delights Boulder County homeowners with quality-built, low-maintenance homes to accommodate people’s desire for active, easy lives. Kingsbridge is set in a quiet area southwest of Longmont, within a mile of shopping and restaurants, with amazing recreational opportunities nearby — trails, hiking, skiing and tourist activities. Besides all that Longmont has to offer, residents love the proximity to Boulder, whether for work  or leisure.

Interview with a new Kingsbridge homeowner

A new Kingsbridge homeowner, a single professional woman who works in Lafayette and has been living in Boulder, chose to move to Kingsbridge for several reasons. Location was important. “It’s fairly close to hiking and biking trails I like, and it’s relatively close to work,” she says. “I spend a lot of time in Boulder, so the proximity was important to me. Also, the green-built and energy-efficient features played a big role in my choice.”

The quality and beauty of the homes attracted her. “I really like the layouts of the townhomes, the open, multi-level design, the big two-car attached garage — which is pretty rare. I chose the Florence model; when I needed to move, it was ready to move into. I loved the finishes already in there, the hardwood floors, granite countertops, beautiful cabinetry, and an upgraded wrought-iron railing.”

Price was a key consideration for this buyer. “I think this is a very good value for the price. This is the only new place I looked at. In the price range I was looking at, this was the only thing.”

The quality of life at Kingsbridge is a plus. “They have done a nice job with the landscaping. There are a lot of trees and flowering shrubs — they even planted lilac trees. When I sit outside on my raised redwood patio/deck, I have a lot of privacy. The homes are extraordinarily quiet; the sound insulation is fantastic. The house is also [free] from outside noise. I have beautiful mountain views out the windows. I’m really happy!”

Built for the way you live

With four floor plans to choose from, the townhomes range in size from 1,400 to 1,793 square feet, each with three bathrooms and either two or three bedrooms, and a private attached two-car garage. The architecture is stylish with attractive stonework and columns, fronting on a landscaped courtyard. Among the many included features are maintained landscaping throughout the community, 8-foot to 11-foot ceilings on the main floor, Tharp oak hardwood cabinets, and low VOC paints for healthier indoor air. “Homebuyers get excited about the quality of the homes, especially compared to other new construction in the area,” says Brent Patterson of the sales team. “These are not your typical town homes. People need to come inside and take a look at the single-family living that’s available in these high-efficiency homes. I hear it all the time, ”˜Wow, I didn’t expect all this in here.’”

Quality-built, green and efficient

Kingsbridge townhomes are constructed to Green building standards and have exceeded the efficiency rating of Energy Star homes. Each home boasts dozens of green features, such as an Advanced Insulation Package that goes beyond the building code to provide a more comfortable home and results in lower energy costs; and certified composite wood trim and decking materials to reduce the use of natural materials. Homeowners never cringe when their Xcel bill arrives. In fact, they look forward to seeing how much they saved on energy costs.

The Kingsbridge information center is located on Venice Ln. in southwest Longmont just west of Airport Road, 1 mile north from CO-119 (Diagonal Highway). 1656 Venice Ln., Longmont, CO 80503.
