If there is one word for your first impression of Calmante, it’s going to be “Wow!”

First-time visitors quickly recognize the uniqueness of this new community of only 75 luxury townhomes nestled on a gentle slope in Superior, just 10 minutes from Boulder and 20 minutes from Denver.

“People tell us ”˜We haven’t seen anything like this!’” says Paul Gortzig, sales and marketing manager for Boulder Creek Life & Home, the developer of Calmante. “We call it ”˜Limited Edition Living’ — a unique blend of rich architecture and craftsmanship combined with the freedom of a low-maintenance lifestyle. It’s perfect for empty nesters or young professionals who are looking for sophisticated living without the obligations of yard work, snow shoveling or building maintenance.”

Calmante is within easy reach of shopping at FlatIron Crossing and the Pearl Street Mall, multiple golf courses, a 150,000-square-foot athletic club and the Interlocken Business Park. Set your course westward, and you’ll find miles of wideopen hiking and biking trails to explore. The community borders 10,000 acres of Boulder County Open Space, and the trails will take you north and south along the Front Range.

Volume spaces with incredible light and views, private patios and courtyards, walkout finished lower levels and main floor master suites are trademarks of each Calmante home. Buyers enjoy working with Calmante’s design center and professional interior designers to make their home a genuine expression of their taste and personality.

“Calmante townhomes live like single-family homes,” says Leslie Reed, community sales manager. “Generous space, sophisticated materials and our approach to customization guarantee that your home will be everything you intended.”

The 3,301-square-foot Cascade offers a grand sense of scale and a generous layout on two levels. 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 walk-in closet plus an additional third bedroom with full bath. Both
options include a spacious great room with kitchen and dining area that open to a private courtyard.

Buyers will find a lot to like in the 3,183-square-foot Brook, a three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath plan that includes an elevator for easy access to the upper level master retreat, second bedroom with full bath and a laundry room. An appealing Juliet balcony overlooks the private courtyard. A gallery entry on the main level leads to an open kitchen, formal dining room and great room with adjoining study.

The Boulder Falls ranch floor plan matches convenience with craftsmanship to create a winning design 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, formal dining room with wet bar and private courtyard complete the main floor. An elegant curved stairway opens to the lower level that adds two secondary bedrooms, a three-quarter bath and yet more space that can be configured as a recreation or game room. An additional patio is included on walk-out sites.

All homes at Calmante include two-car garages with custom cedar doors, gas fireplaces, slab granite kitchen counters, stainless steel appliances, nickle or bronze hardware, 10-foot main level ceilings and a five-piece master bath with jetted tub and separate glass-block shower. Stone and stucco exteriors are accented with artisan iron railings and capped with concrete tile roofing

Boulder Creek Life and Home has a deep-rooted history of homebuilding in the Boulder area for more than 20 years, with an emphasis on building Built Green homes with 2×6 framed walls, high efficiency furnaces, Low-E windows and programmable thermostats. Many materials, such as the cabinetry, argon-filled windows and cultured stone accents are locally sourced.
