LOVELAND – Centerra, Loveland’s award winning, master-planned community, is a landmark in Northern Colorado. The Lakes at Centerra was created as a premier residential lifestyle community, with lakeside living, mountain backdrops, and remarkable community amenities.
Developed by McWHINNEY, Colorado’s premier developer of the Rocky Mountain region, The Lakes at Centerra features homes from five innovative home builders: Boulder Creek Neighborhoods, Landmark Homes, TRI Pointe Homes, William Lyon Homes, and Wonderland Homes.
The builders offer more than 30 different floor plans, ranging from 900 to 4,000 square feet. Homebuyers can choose from low-maintenance attached town homes, low-maintenance patio homes and cottage homes, and single-family homes on a range of lot sizes. Prices range from the mid $200s to the $600s. There are nine beautifully decorated model homes, open daily, for new homebuyers to tour and enjoy.
The Lakes at Centerra is conveniently located off Boyd Lake Avenue and Highway 34. Major employers, retail, dining, medical center, fitness center, arts, and everyday conveniences and services are located within the community, or just minutes away.
The Lakes at Centerra Lake Club wins national awards
According to Keo Frazier, Vice President of Marketing at McWHINNEY, “The community amenities are unparalleled.” In fact, The Lakes at Centerra Lake Club – considered the heart of this active community – has won two key awards, both from the National Association of Home Builders. The Platinum Community Facility Award recognized the design and function of the Lake Club as “The Best in American Living” across the nation, and the Rocky Mountain Region Award recognized the facility as the best design in the region made up of Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.
The Lake Club perfectly embodies these distinctions, with beautiful and thoughtfully designed indoor and outdoor spaces for connecting with friends, family, and the natural beauty of the environment. At the Lake Club, residents feel right at home. They can relax from their hectic daily routine by gathering fireside, dockside or poolside in a comfortable outdoor setting.
Connecting with nature, community, and amenities
Northern Colorado attracts people seeking a year-round active, outdoor lifestyle. Many are drawn to the Lakes at Centerra where open space and lakes nestle in with shops, outdoor art and restaurants. When people want to unwind, the 275 acres of protected lakes, wetlands, and neighborhood amenities await them.
Houts Reservoir and Equalizer Lake lie at the eastern edge of The Lakes community, offering opportunities for recreation and exploration. Residents can enjoy a quiet paddle on the lake, a stroll along the miles of trails, or simply soak in the natural beauty that surrounds them at every turn.
The Lakes at Centerra is adjacent to the new Thompson School District pre-K through 8th grade STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) school, which the neighborhood kids can walk and bike to. Students and staff enjoy immediate access to the neighborhood, connections to nature, open space, trails, and hands-on learning opportunities offered by High Plains Environmental Center, a unique non-profit that focuses on community design, land stewardship, and sustainable living. High Plains Environmental Center just opened its new visitors’ center in May within the Lakes at Centerra.
