LONGMONT – Jane and Arne Olson are happy that they will be moving from their home in the Gunbarrel area of Boulder. The couple will soon be moving to their new home at Denio West in Longmont – low-maintenance community from award-winning homebuilder Boulder Creek Neighborhoods.
“Our current home is too large for our needs, and the maintenance demands have become more than we want to take on,” says Jane. “We like Longmont. We like the less urban, more hometown feel of Longmont as compared to Boulder,” Jane says. “We found ourselves frequently choosing to shop and dine in Longmont, even though we lived in Boulder.”
With those things in mind, the couple began their search. The Denio West neighborhood particularly interested the Olsons. “It is only five blocks from the home of our daughter, son-in-law, and three little granddaughters.”
Denio West, one of Boulder Creek’s newer communities is ideally located at 9th and Hover in Longmont, and features two of Boulder Creek’s low-maintenance home collections – easyHouse® and yourHouse. The designs of both series are focused primarily on main floor living – master suites, living areas, laundry and everything needed on a daily basis are conveniently located on the main floor – greatly reducing trips up and down stairs. For those needing additional space (think: rec rooms, guest bedrooms and bathrooms), Denio offers layouts with available lower levels, as well as those with additional space upstairs. If buyers choose, a lower level is available on select floorplans – providing an additional rec room and bedrooms – perfect for guests. Buyers have a choice of seven floorplans from 1,600 to 2,800 square feet, and,homes at Denio West start in the $400s up to the mid $400s.
The Olsons are looking forward to moving into a new low-maintenance home, for which Boulder Creek Neighborhoods is well known. Homeowners can expect fewer outdoor maintenance chores, and more opportunity to live the lives they’ve dreamed about but never had time for. Boulder Creek has come up with a term for this idea of newfound freedom; they call it Lifefulness™. Lifefullness is all about taking back your free time to use as you wish, whether that be spending time with family and friends, taking up a new hobby, or simply relaxing at home without worrying about those pesky outdoor maintenance chores.
“We will love not having to maintain a yard, pull weeds, worry about our sprinkler system’s quirks, having to pay for dying tree removal, and worrying about how long our aging fence would last,” Jane says. “We will also be glad to have the HOA worry about snow shoveling.” Boulder Creek empowers the Homeowner’s Association for each neighborhood to take care of many of these sorts of time consuming outdoor maintenance chores, which many homebuyers, like the Olsons, are all too happy to leave behind.
The Olsons have lots of plans for the time they will save by not having to do home maintenance chores. “We will be glad to have additional time freed up for pursuit of the hobbies we already enjoy.
Arne builds and flies radio control airplanes. He also is an editor for Physics Essays Magazine, and referees papers whose writers are seeking publication. Jane is a watercolor artist and is also taking guitar lessons. In addition to these hobbies, they enjoy traveling.
“We have children in Florida, Texas, Illinois, and Colorado, and love visiting with them,” says Jane.
“We feel very lucky to have found the Denio West neighborhood. It is perfect for us, and we are looking forward to living there and meeting our new neighbors!”
The Olsons chose an easyHouse floor plan for several important reasons. “It allows for a lower level and a large gathering area downstairs that will be a great space for the grandchildren and larger gatherings,” Jane says. She continues, “The unfinished space will accommodate our messy hobbies, as well as give us much needed storage room. We love the open concept upstairs. The study will accommodate Arne’s office, as he is still fully employed and needs a pleasant space so that he can work from home.”
In addition to easyHouse, Denio West features yourHouse designs – popular in both downtown Louisville and Erie’s Brennan by the Lake Neighborhood. This unique series offers both main floor master layouts as well as a more traditional two-story design. Whether you are seeking dual master suites, loft space, or up to four bedrooms, the flexibility of yourHouse means that you can choose the layout that best works for you.
Community Manager Karen Sanders sees many long-time Longmonters expressing interest in Denio West. “People love the convenience of this location, the draw of a low-maintenance lifestyle, and the benefits of main-floor living,” she says. “Because we are able to offer a variety of floorplans and home designs, it’s really enjoyable for me to work with interested buyers to meet their particular needs in terms of lifestyle and price point,”
