Your friends are on the phone asking if you can join them for an impromptu weekend getaway.

With the “lock-and-leave” lifestyle that you enjoy in your Boulder Creek Neighborhoods residence, your only worry is what to pack, because your home maintenance is already covered. No snow to shovel, no yard chores, just the freedom to enjoy your active life.

Boulder Creek Neighborhoods creates vibrant lifestyle communities throughout Boulder and surrounding areas that are known for high owner satisfaction, enduring, Built Green construction and innovative lifestyle-oriented designs. There are attractive opportunities right now at several locations for homebuyers who want to make the move to low-maintenance living in style.

The Cottages at Erie Village

Residents at The Cottages describe their homes as “upscale,” “colorful” and “charming.” Each home features an inviting front porch and private patio. Floor plans maximize privacy by limiting common walls to the garages. Varied rooflines add visual appeal to the community, which is designed around a park.

And, of course, there are other great reasons to visit. “We’re offering a ”˜Meet the Architect’ program right now,” says John Martin, community sales manager at Erie Village. “Homebuyers will have the opportunity to customize the interior floorplan of their new home with our architect. This is a unique opportunity that’s not typically available on homes priced from $219,900.”

Martin reports that there are five homes currently under construction, all ranch style with master bedrooms on the main floor. “Our ranch plans are the most popular. Buyers are impressed by the value of these homes.” Two homes backing to the park are almost finished and are available for quick occupancy. Two are at the drywall stage and ready for buyers to choose their custom finishes, and the remaining home — perfect for the single owner who appreciates efficiency without compromising quality — is being framed.

The Heritage at Vista Ridge

Situated on a ridge with sweeping mountain views, The Heritage at Vista Ridge features patio homes designed for
comfortable main-floor living. A kitchen, great room, study, dining room (per plan), master suite and laundry room are on the first floor, while the finished lower level contains a recreation room, bedrooms, a storage area and a bathroom.

“Our premium sites are going quickly,” says Dave Hildebrand, community sales manager, “and we’re down to our last 14 home sites.” There are five homes currently under construction. One home backs to the Vista Ridge golf course, which leaves only two sites featuring this prime location. “We’re also offering homes not directly on the golf course priced from $369,000 to $375,000,” Hildebrand says. Homes on either side of these models have sold and appraised in the $400s and one of them includes an elevator.

“We have a Somerset model, with mountain views from the office and deck, with five-inch hickory floors, granite
countertops and custom paint, that can be ready in 30 days for a new owner.” Hildebrand also says that, to complement the no-maintenance living, the next three homebuyers at The Heritage will enjoy twicemonthly maid service for an entire year.
