Posted January 26, 2009

Virginia Jeffries says that when she first visited The Cottages at Erie Village, “I was just shopping around” and was not planning on moving. But as she toured the homes, met the neighbors and saw the benefits of low-maintenance living, “I couldn’t refuse,” she recalls.

“The Nantucket’s floor plan is designed for comfortable living. The finished basement is like an ”˜extra getaway.’ This home provides it all, from a great room to a private area that is perfect for an office, or just curling up with a book.”

“It’s quiet, but there’s a nice mix of neighbors. My home is easy to care for, and with the bedroom and family room in the finished basement, it’s like having two separate homes. I went on a cruise recently, and really liked knowing that everything would be taken care of while I was gone.”

Home owners at The Cottages don’t have to rake leaves, clean the gutters, shovel snow or worry about winterizing their homes. Take a trip for the weekend or for several weeks and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with lowmaintenance living.

“You can just close the door and leave,” says Virginia’s neighbor, Ann Leggett, who says she was attracted to Erie Village for its low traffic, location and floorplan options. “You don’t just see a bunch of beige houses,” she says. “And we can hear coyotes from our porch at night; it’s so quiet.”

The Cottages at Erie Village has the feeling of a classic neighborhood. Mature trees and picket fences line a street that looks like a row of Victorian and Craftsman homes with welcoming front porches and set-back garages. Pocket parks and extensive hiking trails provide plenty of places to relax and exercise.

Homeowners at Erie Village report that the sustainable construction of their new homes was important to them in choosing their new neighborhood. “There’s a real broad selection of options and finishes to choose from nowadays,” says one resident. “We all have to look at ways to live well, while managing our impact on the environment. It’s an efficient house, easy to heat and cool.”

The Cottages at Erie Village is being developed by Boulder Creek Life and Home, nationally recognized for its award-winning neighborhoods. “The builders were amazing to work with,” Ann Leggett says. “They stayed involved after
the closing. They called us and asked ”˜Do you like your home? Do you like the community?’ Among builders, they
really stand out.”

New View Lots and a new Model Home

New home sites have just been released at The Cottages at Erie Village. Each new lot features mountain views or directly adjoins a community pocket park, bringing the feeling of open space right to your door. Now is a great time to explore the newest design, the Nantucket ranch model.

“The Nantucket ranch plan adds even more circulation and finish options,” says David Sinkey, marketing director for Boulder Creek Life and Home. “As with all Cottage homes, the lower level is completely finished, and it includes an additional bedroom, full bath and a rec room. We think the Nantucket offers great features, design and a manageable size that many single homeowners find very appealing.”

“The Nantucket’s floor plan is designed for comfortable living,” says Jannelle Moore, community sales manager. “The
finished basement is like an ”˜extra getaway.’ This home provides it all, from a great room to a private area that is perfect for an office, or just curling up with a book.”
