Kingsbridge Townhomes in Longmont: Creating a Community

by Judy Finman, At Home Colorado

Whether you commute daily and work long hours or are retired and enjoy plenty of leisure time, your life at Kingsbridge Townhomes is
sweet. These low-maintenance,energy-efficient homes are closeto hiking, shopping, and all that Boulder County has to offer. If you live at Kingsbridge, you can ride your bicycle, climb a mountain or just relax, without the hassle of yard maintenance or outdoor upkeep.

These new, high-quality, energy- efficient, right-sized townhomes are built by Boulder Creek Builders of Louisville, pioneers in residential development for the “active lifestyle” homeowner. This well respected local builder has delighted Boulder County homeowners with quality-built, low-maintenance homes to accommodate people’s desire for an active, easy life.

Kingsbridge is set in a quiet area of west Longmont, within a mile of shopping and restaurants, with excellent recreational opportunities nearby — trails, skiing and tourist activities.

Creating a community

“We not only build homes, but we try to build neighborhoods,” says Drew Kell, sales manager. “We have a great community here at Kingsbridge. We sponsored National Night Out on August 7 for our own community. The slogan was ”˜Give neighborhood crime”¨and drugs a going-away party.’ It’s a neighborhood-watch safety program — neighbors looking out for neighbors, helping to alleviate crime and enjoy a better quality”¨of life. We invited Coldstone Creamery, and it was a get- together for the residents and their guests. They got to know people in their neighborhood better. They enjoyed games and prizes, too.”

Future homeowners also attended the event. Ted commented that “even though I’m renting over at Fox Hill right now, I spend more time at Kingsbridge. I enjoy taking my dog for walks in the neighborhood while looking forward to being in my new home.”

Another Kingsbridge event is coming up this Saturday, August 11, from noon to 4 p.m. It’s”¨called Summer Days and is a celebration of life at Kingsbridge. It takes place outside the sales office in a green space next to”¨the east community entrance.”¨The community is invited to bring family, friends and coworkers for complimentary activities: gourmet sandwiches from Jimmy John’s, air brush painting similar to tattoos, and balloon art.

Summer Days is open to the public. Pets are welcome, too. Kingsbridge is pet-friendly, with a place for residents to play”¨with their animal friends. Kell says, “We’ll have tours of low- maintenance homes, highlighting our green building techniques and Energy Star rating — we have achieved the highest standard of energy efficiency, 3.0. You won’t find a lot of townhomes elsewhere with this high level of energy efficiency.”

Built for the way you live

With four floor plans to choose from, the townhomes range in size from 1,400 to 1,793 square feet, each with two or three bedrooms, and a private attached two-car garage. The architectureӬis stylish and imposing, with attractive stonework and columns, and a courtyard concept.

Among the many included features are maintained landscaping throughout the community, 8-foot to 11-foot ceilings on the main floor, birch hardwood cabinets , low-VOC paints and carpeting for healthier indoor air, and Rinnai whole- house tankless water heaters for added energy savings.

“We have seen some extra interest lately in the Florence, with 1,400 square feet of open living space,” Kell says. “We had a closing on one last month, and another coming up next month. We still have some”¨great opportunities available”¨for the Florence from $199,000”¨to $227,000, a wide range of affordability. There are several great locations to choose from, including our newest released building facing a lot of open space. This affords the perfect amount of space to live alone, if you’re looking for some privacy. Or, if you are considering a”¨future roommate to help out”¨with the mortgage, the two bedrooms, each with its own private bath and a laundry tucked between, makes for a comfortable roommate lifestyle.”

Kingsbridge buyers are a mix of baby boomers, empty nesters, people who want a right-sized, low-maintenance, lock-and-leave home so they can pursue their interests, grandparents moving here to be near grandchildren, families including children, and single professionals. The central location affords easy access to Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins and I-25.

Quality built, green and efficient

Kingsbridge townhomes Ӭare constructed to Built Green standards and qualify as EnergyӬStar homes. Each home boasts dozens of green features, such as an Advanced Insulation Package that goes beyond the building code to provide a more comfortable home and results in lower energy costs; and certified composite wood trim and decking materials to reduce the use of natural materials. Homeowners never cringe when their Excel bill arrives. In fact, they look forward to seeing how much they saved on energy costs.
