More than a Home, a Lifestyle
When Boulder Creek Neighborhoods announces new communities, home shoppers throughout Boulder County take notice. Already well-known for popular neighborhoods like Steel Ranch in Louisville and Erie Commons in Erie, Boulder Creek Neighborhoods is setting out to offer their signature style of low-maintenance living to new locations in Boulder County and throughout the Front Range.
The local, Louisville based homebuilder has an almost cult-like following of homebuyers seeking a new lifestyle. Boulder Creek has made a name for themselves locally and in national circles for providing unique homes that are different from just your “typical” floorplan.
The Boulder Creek homebuyer is someone that is looking for something different, something specific, and something not found in most homebuilder lineups. Whether that’s a low-maintenance lifestyle, main-floor living options, or the appeal of “downsizing” from a larger family home, folks are able to find something special in Boulder Creek that they can’t find elsewhere. David Sinkey, President of Boulder Creek Neighborhoods, puts it best, “We bring something atypical to the market. What we offer is more than a home, it’s an opportunity for a change in lifestyle.” Just a quick tour through a Boulder Creek neighborhood proves that the builder has brought something different to the market – and the success of their current communities proves that they’ve nailed it.
In searching for a home, many buyers look for so long that they finally give up on finding the right home for their particular set of criteria. Notes Sinkey, “Buyers often tell us that they can finally end their years-long home search – they find a home with us that they didn’t know even existed in the market.” All too often, homebuyers resign themselves to purchasing a lesser home that doesn’t meet their needs because they simply can’t find what they are looking for.
Big Plans for the Year Ahead
Fans of Boulder Creek as well as anyone who is in the market for an exceptional home are in luck. The company has recently announced a full lineup for 2016 throughout Boulder County and the Front Range – including new floorplans, new model homes and new communities just starting development. “It’s always exciting open new communities and launch new designs,” says Sinkey.
Boulder Creek’s communities have long been a presence in Boulder County, and the company is based in Louisville. Currently under construction are two communities just a hop, skip and a jump from their headquarters in Old Town. Offers Sinkey, “It’s something special to be building in our own backyard. Louisville is such a desirable location for so many different reasons.”
Just on the north end of Old Town Louisville, Boulder Creek’s DELO townhomes have introduced a newly finished model home, and the extensive community development that will bring the retail and office space to life is well underway. Also under construction in Louisville are the very final homes in the ever-popular Steel Ranch neighborhood. The ranch patio homes at Lanterns homes are selling quickly and are expected to sell out before the end of the year.
The Calmante neighborhood, located directly across from 10,000 acres of Boulder County open space has been wildly successful since opening in 2014. “Homeowners, especially those coming out of Boulder, are finding Calmante to be a tremendous value. There’s simply nothing else like it in Boulder County,” says Sinkey.
Boulder Creek has also started construction on the model homes for Tramonto, in south west Longmont. About 30% of these ranch patio homes have already found owners, even though the community is still in pre-sale mode. That’s not stopping interested buyers,though, as Boulder Creek already has sign ups for a Tramonto floor plan and pricing release event slated for the end of February.
Perhaps the most exciting announcement for the Boulder Creek fan is the brand new community in Erie, Brennan by the Lake. Located at the corner of 119th and Erie Parkway, Brennan by the Lake is one of Boulder Creek’s most highly anticipated neighborhoods. Sinkey’s team recently held an informational open house, gathering feedback on floorplans and design features from more than 60 interested and potential homebuyers. Patio home sales at Brennan are expected to begin this spring, with models following later this summer.
“The notion of low-maintenance living resonates with folks all over Colorado,” said Sinkey. Boulder Creek is offering both townhomes and ranch patio homes at The Lakes at Centerra in Loveland, as well as patio homes in Stapleton in Denver. A recent addition to the lineup includes the Encore series, smaller paired ranch homes, staring from just under $300,000 in Thornton and Aurora.
Say Goodbye to Home Maintenance
The locations, floorplans and price points might vary across these neighborhoods, but they all have one thing in common. “Lifefullness,” says Sinkey. He describes “Lifefullness” as the guiding philosophy of the company. It’s about building homes that help owners embrace full lives, focusing on the things that matter most to them. “We hear from our buyers that they’ve been searching for a way to lead a fuller life,” Sinkey said. “They don’t always realize how much a new home can be a part of that solution.” Owning any home has plenty of perks, but a typical home comes with a definite downside – exterior maintenance chores like yard work, landscaping, snow shoveling, upkeep of the home’s exterior, and more. Homeowners can say goodbye to these chores and more in a low-maintenance Boulder Creek home, as the majority of outdoor maintenance is handled on their behalf. That leaves time for the activities they love, whether that’s hiking or skiing, reading a good book, or catching up with friends and family. No matter what it is, that’s what Boulder Creek means by “Lifefullness.”
