A large and growing portion of the Front Range population is on the move.
Known as Empty Nesters, Downsizers or Boomers, these are couples and professional singles with a changing lifestyle. The kids are in college, retirement may be in sight, and there’s more time to enjoy the pleasures of carefree, active living.
For many, this is also the time to right-size their living spaces. But buyers looking for high-end architecture, upscale finishes and an exclusive Front Range location have had few options. Until now, that is.
Calmante, a new maintenance-free community of 75 luxury townhomes, is bringing its unique brand of “Limited Edition Living” to Superior. Just minutes from Boulder and highway 36, you’re in easy reach of shopping, the Pearl Street Mall, Interlocken, multiple golf courses and the bright lights of Denver. Head out the other direction, and you’re only minutes from hiking and biking trails with miles of peaceful scenery.
“Calmante offers upscale features and a desirable location that are hard to find anywhere else,” says Terri Johnson, community sales manager. “Homebuyers really like the volume spaces with incredible light and views, private patios and courtyards, walkout lower levels and main floor master suites.”
“We put a lot of focus and energy making sure everything is first class at Calmante,” says Rick Rippberger, who is leading the development of the community. “We have really gone through the plans, ensuring that each home has views, creating floor plans that are comfortable and convenient. We hand-picked Boulder Creek Life and Home to build these homes. We needed a builder partner that pays attention to details. The principals are out here on a daily basis and they are proud of what we are building here.”
“The HOA manages everything for maintenance-free living,” Rippberger adds. “A lot of people here travel frequently, and they like to know that they can take off for a few months and not have to worry about anything.”
An on-site design center provides buyers with the opportunity to work with a professional interior designer to choose just the right finishes, fixtures and materials to make each home a genuine expression of its owners.
Four different home plans, plus a high degree of personalization unprecedented in a townhome community, help guarantee your home will be everything you intended.
Couples who frequently entertain or have visitors will appreciate the grand sense of scale and generous layout of the two-story Cascade. With a main floor master suite and a private deck, the Cascade’s upper level can be configured with two bedrooms, two baths and a loft, or with a junior master suite with five-piece bath and walkin closet plus an additional bedroom with full bath. Both plans include a spacious great room with kitchen and dining areas that open to a private courtyard. “The Cascade ”˜lives’ like a single-family home,” says community sales manager Stacey Buck.
Buyers who would like a little less floor space without sacrificing the openness of two-story living will find a lot to like in The Brook, a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath plan that has an elevator option for easy access to the upper level master retreat, second bedroom with full bath and a laundry room. A private courtyard and gallery entry on the main level lead to an open kitchen, formal dining room and great room with adjoining study.
For those who prefer a ranch plan, The Boulder Falls matches convenience with craftsmanship to create a winning plan featuring a main level master with private deck or patio, five-piece bath and generous closet space. A home office, laundry room, cook’s kitchen with center island and walk-in pantry, and formal dining room with wet bar and private courtyard complete the main floor.
All homes at Calmante include two-car garages with custom cedar doors, gas fireplaces, slab granite kitchen counters and tile backsplashes, Delta hardware in the kitchen and baths, and separate showers with glass block and five-piece master bath with jetted tub in the master baths. Boulder Creek Home and Life build these homes to Built Green standards, with 90-percent efficient furnaces, low-E windows and programmable thermostats.
Calmante is being represented by Stacey Buck and Stephanie Lyon of Trilogy Real Estate and Terri Johnson of ReMax of Boulder. Call or email the Calmante sales center at 303.242.3199 or [email protected] to schedule your personal showing.
