With its innovative mix of townhomes, row homes and duplexes, Blue Vista in Longmont has already been discovered by a diverse community of residents, including young families, single professionals and active seniors. Front porches, yards with picket fences and tree-lined streets provide a “classic” neighborhood ambiance, highlighted by Victorian, Colonial and Four-Square homes in a pleasing palette of rust reds, sage greens and soft yellows. Now, home buyers have even more reasons to see Blue Vista, with the addition of two new exciting designs.

Five single-family homes have just been released for pre-sale. Two of these floor plans, which range from approximately 1,500 to 3,000 square feet, feature main level master bedrooms. Summer Youngs, community sales manager for Blue Vista, says that there has been a strong demand for home designs that arrange the main living spaces on the ground floor, with secondary spaces on upper and lower levels. Each single-family home fronts to a
pocket park and includes an attached two-car garage and a private, fenced yard.

Four-plex condo flats have also just been added to Blue Vista’s blended collection of homes. “The condo flats also include lots of main-level living options,” Youngs says. The Larkspur, with 1,602 square feet, has a main floor master bedroom and bath, plus living area, kitchen and dining area. The lower level includes two additional bedrooms, an
additional bathroom and generous storage space.

The Lupine, at 946 square feet, is a great option for those requiring less space but still wanting the benefits of a well-designed and constructed home. The single-level plan includes two bedrooms, one bath, a kitchen and living and
dining areas. Some condo flats plans include an upper level porch, perfect for enjoying the many mountain views.

Single-family homes start in the mid-200s and condo flats homes start at $149,900. Buyers who qualify through the Community Land Trust program can receive additional pricing incentives. “We have sold 30 homes in our first year,” Youngs reports. “From listening to what our home buyers are telling us, we know that these new floor plans
will be very popular. With just five single-family homes in the current release, we expect them to sell quickly.”

It’s All Good, It’s All Green

All homes at Blue Vista are designated “Built Green” and qualify as Energy Star homes. Low-E glazed windows and blown-in cellulose insulation make your home easy to heat and a breeze to cool. Two-by-six framing is standard instead of the two-by-fours you’ll find elsewhere, creating sturdier, deeper walls that hold more insulation and are
more soundproof.

The inside environment is protected by low-VOC paints and finishes. Carpets are made of recycled materials, and are tacked down rather than glued, to help protect the quality of the air you breathe. All lighting fixtures use compact fluorescents bulbs and Energy Star appliances, chosen for their superior efficiency.

Each home is visited several times during construction by experts from EnergyLogic, an independent third-party company, to ensure that construction meets both Energy Star and Built Green standards.

“Every Blue Vista home comes with a comprehensive warranty,” says Summer Youngs. “You can buy with confidence at Blue Vista.”
