Monte Cielo: Green & Solar Custom Homes on Acreage Lots

Interior of Monte Cielo home in LongmontLONGMONT – Monte Cielo Homes in Longmont, at the junction of Hover St. and Hwy 66, is putting the finishing touches on its show homes in anticipation of its very special Grand Opening. On Feb. 28, area brokers will get their first peek. Yes, even hardened real estate industry buffs will be touched by the offerings in this new community. Then, on March 2nd and 3rd from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., the public is invited to tour the homes and the property and, more likely, to start dreaming.

Anne Postle, owner of Osmosis Art and Architecture, designed the homes. “We are very excited about this project,” she exclaims. “The homes combine the look and feel of historic farmhouses with the features that will appeal to today’s buyers.”

Builder Midtown Homes has achieved a rare juxtaposition of livability and elegance in beautiful acre and a half lots in the shadow of Longs Peak. The subdivision is bordered by a walking trail, and 25 of its acres are pure open space.

“When the public comes to visit, they’re going to be very excited by what they see,” says exclusive listing agent Steven Noel. “There are multiple versions of house plans. The versatility in these designs is incredible.”

Potential buyers can even bring in their own plan and Midtown Homes will bid it. That’s how confident the company is in Monte Cielo as not only the toast of Longmont but also a safe place to raise a family.

Monte Cielo homes range in size from 2,774 to 5,462 total square feet and lots from 1 to 1.5 acres. With these generous lot sizes and ample space between homes, the Colorado dream is alive and well at Monte Cielo. Three- to six-car garages are possible, and high-end finishes are not compromised for the sake of personal floor plans. Here, you get both. Wood floors, custom cityscape kitchen cabinetry, and granite countertops are very high end for this type of property.

The Americana (pictured) is a ranch home plan with 2,412 square feet on the main floor, 2,233 square feet of unfinished basement and 817 more bonus space upstairs. Options abound. Want a rumpus room? A study? Extra bedroom? The home is built to accommodate your ideas, to be exactly the home you need. The two-story Rockwell, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, is the perfect family home. With 1,461 square feet on the main level, 1,297 square feet on the second story and 690 bonus feet upstairs above the garage, there’s more than enough room to enjoy one’s own space yet never be far from the action.

Midtown Homes is a semi custom builder that caters to what its buyers desire but doesn’t charge arms and legs for its flexibility. “The homes have open livable spaces and storage right where you need it,” says Postle. “The plans are very flexible, so you can customize them to meet the needs of your family. I really enjoyed working with a builder who places design as a high priority and allowed us to include the features that work for the way we live today.”

In Boulder County, the way we live today is with the utmost energy efficiency. Monte Cielo residents will be living in homes that model it. The Americana’s Home Energy Rating (HERS) index score is 33. That’s 67 percent more efficient than a standard home.

Why should you care? The HERS index score is based on on-site inspections including a blower door test, a duct test, and inputs derived from the house plan review. Monte Cielo homes are packed with energy saving features such as programmable thermostats, on-demand hot water heater, solar panel system, water-efficient plumbing fixtures and more. Americana homeowners’ estimated annual energy cost is $808 – or $68 a month. LovelandComm_2_0215

Some of what makes Monte Cielo so special can’t be calculated in energy ratings and square feet. It’s the way the wind blows through the conifers and the mountain views from every lot. It’s covenants that give you room to breathe, the space for your family’s toys, and the opportunity to make new friends that might just be there for life.

Midtown Homes is known throughout Northern Colorado for brilliantly designed homes with custom features and open, clever floor plans to suit families of all sizes. The company believes in building homes that will “pass the test of time” and provide value to the customer and community for generations. A Monte Cielo home – a hub of creativity, craftsmanship and energy efficiency – will pass that test with flying colors.
