Quarry Lake in Loveland: A serene lakefront enclave of patio homes - Daily Camera - At Home Section, April 13, 2012

Posted April 13, 2012 In The News

With its Grand Opening scheduled for June, the new Quarry Lake community is generating excitement in Loveland.

Tuscan-style patio homes built by Boulder Creek Builders of Louisville enjoy a perfect setting alongside the lake, just a stone’s- throw from open space and nature trails.

“All homesites back up to the lake and, beyond that, 130 acres of open space, “ says sales representative Jim Lettis.

The value of lakefront property, high-quality construction, and working with a well-known local builder make Quarry Lake a unique opportunity for savvy homebuyers. This is an intimate enclave, with just 30 paired patio homes — that is, 15 buildings. They range in price between $355,000 and $375,000. Boulder Creek Builders is currently building the model home and one home for sale, with more homes coming.

“We build for downsizers who want something very nice that’s the right size,” Lettis says. “Besides being energy efficient, these homes are low- maintenance, with snow and trash removal, so you can spend your free time enjoying your Colorado outdoor lifestyle instead of taking care of the yard.” 

The homes at Quarry Lake

These homes are designed for easy living. The main floor features a master suite, laundry, study and Great Room. Each home includes a large walk- out lower level with recreation room and additional bedroom. The four floor plans to choose from range from 2,402 to 2,670 finished square feet; bonus rooms further add to the finished square footage.

“The architecture is beautiful, outside and inside, with stunning exterior materials, nine-foot ceilings, and master bedroom at the back of the house to enjoy the peace and quiet of the lake,” Lettis says. “In these patio homes everything people need day to day is on one floor, with a finished lower level for company or entertainment. Our homes allow people to live the Colorado lifestyle that everyone wants — with lock-and-leave convenience, and a low-maintenance lifestyle with no more weekends mowing the lawn or shoveling snow.”

A key element of the building process is protecting the environment and making homes as efficient as possible. All homes  at Quarry Lake are built using green building technology that results in, for example, better indoor-air quality and lower utility bills. With 2 x 6 exterior wall construction, formaldehyde- free blown fiberglass insulation, R-24 exterior walls, R-49 attic spaces, and many more high- quality construction practices, the homes are built for comfort and durability. 

Boulder Creek Builders

Boulder Creek Builders is an award-winning, Louisville- based homebuilder that creates innovative communities across the Front Range. The company builds homes designed around how people aspire to live, appealing to the active lifestyle homeowner, including professionals, empty nesters, semi-retired and post-children “Baby Boomers,” through the creation of low-maintenance, single-family and multi-family residential homes. Boulder Creek’s communities vary in size, price and concept, but have a common thread: they embrace quality craftsmanship and green building practices and provide an unmatched lifestyle. 

Managing Director/Principal David Sinkey says of the new Quarry Lake community, “With the lake, this site is so compelling. These ranch homes are designed for this site, with back patios and walk-out lower levels. The Tuscan-inspired architecture is distinctive and upscale, with a low-maintenance stucco exterior, concrete roof tiles, lower-slung roof pitch, cupola and arches.

“These homes, on a lake, are a tremendous value if you’re willing to drive north. They would be significantly higher-priced in communities south of Loveland.”
