LONGMONT – Construction is nearing completion on the first spec home at The Farm at Woodridge, a Sopris Homes community just north of Longmont in Boulder County.
The home follows Sopris’ most popular design, the Aspen Ranch. Sopris Homes was named after Mount Sopris in Carbondale and that theme carries through the business with each of their plans named after cities and towns across the western slope of Colorado. The 3-bedroom, 3-bath home, located at 13154 Woodridge Drive, has a total square footage of 5,040 spread across the unfinished basement and finely appointed main level.
The main level has 3,200 finished square feet with 10-foot, vaulted ceilings and an up-to-date, easy-living floor plan. “It is very modern in the sense that the entire house is extremely livable,” says Tracie Thede, listing broker for Sopris Homes. In place of a formal, segregated dining room (often the least-used room in a traditional house), this home features a large morning room that can accommodate both casual and formal gatherings of any size. The open floor plan also includes a 500-square-foot great room with wood floors, an impressive kitchen complete with state-of-the-art appliances and a convenient home center nestled between the garage and the morning room. “The home center is a great place for crafts, homework, work – really anything you need it to be,” says Thede.
The home is split plan, meaning the master bedroom is privately located on the opposite side of the house from the other two bedrooms and the study. The home also features two gas fireplaces for added luxury and an over-sized garage that can accommodate up to four vehicles.
Like all Sopris homes in The Farm at Woodridge, this home is a Net Zero Energy home, engineered for highly sustainable operation. The home’s roof will be installed with discrete solar panels that will absorb and store energy on Colorado’s many sunny days. “The house, with it’s superior insulation and HVAC system, is designed to be the most energy efficient house it can be, even without the renewable aspect of the solar panels,” says Thede. Double-pane windows and a high-efficiency furnace are among the green features of the home, which is priced at $999,000. The home is listed for sale by Tracie Thede at Distinctive Homes RE Inc.

About The Farm at Woodridge, your new neighborhood
The Farm at Woodridge is located north of Highway 66 and west of Highway 287 at Vermillion Road. The community offers the luxury and peace of farm living with none of the hassle and work. The Farm at Woodridge is enclosed on all sides by conservation land and protected open space, meaning the pastures and fields surrounding your home won’t be developed upon, keeping your mountain and pastoral views intact.
Despite the sense of separation from the hustle and bustle, every convenience you might need is nearby. Restaurants and shops abound at Longmont’s Village at The Peaks shopping center, just minutes away. In less than an hours drive, you can be hiking at Estes Park, camping at Rocky Mountain National Park or hopping on a plane at Denver International Airport. In just fifteen minutes, golfers can enjoy a day at Fox Hill Country Club or the new TCP Colorado course in Berthoud.
Perhaps one of the most appealing features of this safe, gated community is its location. “There is not much left in Boulder County,” says Thede. “The neighborhood is located in a fast growing, up-and-coming part of Boulder County that is getting a huge increase in activity.” Nearby Berthoud has become a bustling community hub and multiple hospitals, health care facilities and malls are cropping up all along the I-25 corridor between Fort Collins and Denver. Amazon is currently at work on an 880,000 square foot fulfillment center in the area. “The corridor is booming,” says Thede. “You can get to anywhere from this community.”
Another unique quality of The Farm at Woodridge is the size of the home sites – each is an acre or more. Lots this size are a rarity. “Most lots are postage-stamp sized these days,” says Thede. These lots provide room for Sopris Homes to do what they do best: build comfortable, luxury custom homes. Homeowners can choose from Sopris’ portfolio of artfully designed home plans, bring a pre-existing plan to the Sopris team or work with the team to create custom layout, from the foundation to the final details.
Sopris Homes was the first energy-star rated builder in the state of Colorado and every home in The Farm at Woodridge community will be Zero Net Energy. A perfect place for families, The Farm at Woodridge is zoned for the St. Vrain School District, including Northridge Elementary, Longs Peak Middle School, and Longmont High School.
Make this community yours
This area is generating abundant interest for homeowners from all over the country and Sopris recognizes the value of this neighborhood. The TCP Network, a branch of the PGA Tour, is currently at work on a new, 18-hole golf course in Berthoud’s Heron Lakes community, just 10 minutes north of The Farm at Woodridge. TCP Colorado, debuting in spring of 2018, will be the only TCP-sanctioned course in the state. Designed by Arthur Schuapeter, TCP Colorado will offer the ultimate engagement and challenge for golfers of all levels. “It is going to have a huge draw for people from all over the US because TCP is an admired franchise,” says Thede. “This exhibits how active Boulder County is right now and how much interest there is for homes in this area.”
It’s time. Home ownership opportunities in Boulder County are dwindling and The Farm at Woodridge is ready for your family. Act fast to take advantage of this beautiful, sustainable community.
