Two new, successful and growing neighborhoods, Northfield Commons and Northfield Village, are generating excitement in north Boulder.
They offer great location, distinctive architecture, outstanding views, tasteful designs and layouts, high-end finishes and cutting-edge green building technology. The two popular neighborhoods were created by a group of long-time local builders: Coast To Coast Residential Development, Markel Homes Construction Company, Hendricks Fine Homes and Accent Properties. With a variety of housing types and prices, there is something for every homebuyer.
Northfield Commons occupies a 22-acre site between Kalmia Avenue and Palo Parkway in northeast Boulder. The semi-rural charm of quiet, tree-lined streets is balanced by easy access to trails, parks and recreation, plus the convenience of nearby restaurants, banks, shopping and public transportation.
Besides its luxurious single-family homes, which are almost completely sold out, Northfield Commons showcases easy-living, low-maintenance duplex homes that look and feel like single-family homes. Each enjoys private fenced-in outdoor areas and stunning mountain views. Owners may choose from a range of styles, floor plans and interiors, high-end finishes and design details. These duplexes are green-built, Energy Star® and EPA Indoor airPLUS® certified for a healthier, more comfortable home.
“The lock-and-leave lifestyle that our duplex homes offer suits many of our busy and active homeowners, since it allows them to go skiing, camping or traveling, and then come home to a property that is fully maintained while they’re gone. Residents don’t need to worry about shoveling their driveway and sidewalk, or blowing out their sprinkler lines in the fall. It’s such a relaxed lifestyle” says Sales Manager Scott Steward. “And with the newest green-building technology, our excellent HERS ratings (measurement of energy efficiency) save homeowners tons of money on utility bills too. Our duplex homes are a great value, since they save residents time due to low-maintenance living, and money with tons of energy saving features.”
Only five completed duplex homes are left, with four more in various stages of construction. They are priced from $569,900 to $699,900.
The last two large single-family homes are breaking ground now. They will be priced at $624,900 and $709,900.
“We are in our final stages of construction, with most of the properties now sold and occupied,” explains Steward. “The community is lively, with families, active retirees, and people starting out. I was walking by the neighborhood park, and a family was enjoying a birthday party there. People love that we are close to Wonderland Creek Trail, Four-Mile Trail, and the soccer field.”
Northfield Village is the up-and-coming, charming new neighborhood in the residential area at Jay Road and 47th Street in north Boulder. The location highlights “the best of both worlds.” It is across from open space, yet close to major roads for easy commuting and convenient shopping and restaurants. Boulder Reservoir, hiking trails and public transportation are all nearby.
At Northfield Village, home buyers are loving the array of attractive features: Tasteful designs and easy layouts, outstanding views, top-notch schools, neighborhood parks, distinctive architecture, high-end finishes, quality construction and cutting-edge green building technology.
“What makes Northfield Village special, is the variety that we offer. We can accommodate any time frame, taste and price-point,” says Sales Manager Roz Giannasi. “We have several single-family homes available for a quick move-in, and others that are under construction now, or can be built-to-suit. They are priced in the high $500,000s to low $800,000s and offer larger yards, plenty of space, functional and open floor plans, including main-level master or two-story styles and plenty of high-end finishes. These are an exceptional value for buying into a new subdivision.”
Buyers who like the appeal of low-maintenance living can choose from an assortment of condos, town homes and row houses with many utilities and all exterior maintenance included.
The stylish row houses are priced in the $300,000s and feature large, contemporary windows to soak in the sunlight and views. They’ve been very popular, and more will be available for move-in this spring. They offer a low-maintenance lifestyle, attached two-car garage, spacious kitchen and room to grow in an unfinished basement.
For buyers who qualify for the City of Boulder Homeownership Program, there are 2 bedroom condos starting at $154,200 and town homes at $230,413 available. They will be move-in ready in the spring.
