Setting the Standard


Indian Peaks is setting the standard for the way families want to live today.

As Spring approaches and signs of consumer confidence return, homebuyers are responding enthusiastically to the opportunity of home ownership in the last available neighborhood of the award-winning Indian Peaks community in Boulder County. Since the early ‘90s, Indian Peaks has become known for its outdoor living, great architecture and smart, energy-efficient design. With miles of hiking trails, abundant open space and a Hale Irwin-designed golf course, the community has set the standard for the way families want to live today.

“A lot of families have waited to buy a new home, but people are telling us that they are again ready to make a move,” says David Ware, McStain CEO. “And Indian Peaks South offers a special opportunity to own a new home that is built to uniquely fit your needs and desires. With a full complement of ranch style, main-floor master plans and traditional two-story designs to choose from, you have plenty of options – and a trusted, local homebuilder with over 40 years of experience to partner with.”

Three single-family home collections are being offered at Indian Peaks South. The Classic Collection includes four stunning designs from 2,232 to 2,875 finished square feet featuring front-loading garages and priced from the high $400s. The Traditional Collection boasts seven innovative designs with alley-loaded garages from 1,730 to 2,514 finished square feet, priced from the high $300s. The Cottage Collection offers four exciting plans with alley-loaded garages, from 1,376 to 1,666 finished square feet and priced from the mid $300s. Each home incorporates smart design features and an enduring curb appeal that will make you proud to be a new homeowner in this appealing community.

The diverse master plan at Indian Peaks South is designed to create a real neighborhood that serves a range of buyers and lifestyles. “We have a vibrant mix of home owners here, from empty nesters to young families,” reports Cindie Reddington, Neighborhood Consultant at Indian Peaks South. “They lead active lifestyles and aren’t looking for huge homes, but still want a home designed with plenty of usable space, quality features and nice, upscale finishes.”

McStain Neighborhoods, founded in 1966, is a nationally recognized leader in master-planned community design and a founding member of the EPA’s Energy Star program. Homeowners appreciate the lasting value of McStain communities, which over the decades continue to connect people to each other and to the natural environment on Colorado’s Front Range.

This legacy is kept alive today with the personal relationships McStain creates with buyers. “I often work directly with our home buyers,” David Ware says. “Typically, we will take your initial ideas, create a couple of design sketches, and work through the stages as needed. Once we have all decided on the specifics, then we will work with a choice of several local design studios to specify the hardwood cabinets, hardware, plumbing and appliance packages. We maintain full transparency along the way, communicating with you on your budget and options as we finalize your home plan.”

One notable difference in today’s new home marketplace, Ware explains, is that available home inventories are more balanced to prevailing demand. In the past, you might find a half dozen homes available in some communities. “Over the last several years, buyers got used to being able to wait in a slower market. But we are now building to pace the market, and we are seeing our homes selling before they are completed. The good news is that buyers who buy early in their home’s construction are in the best position to get the most desired design and finish options. We are creating semi-custom homes at non-custom prices.”

“If you have been considering new home ownership this year, we invite you to come see this special community and experience what makes a McStain home truly special,” says Neighborhood Consultant Chad Smith. “Every weekend is like an open house.”
