SUPERIOR – Superior is one of the most desirable places to live in Colorado. There’s no shortage of things to do in Boulder County, with its proximity to the mountains, top-notch eateries, craft breweries, educational and cultural offerings. In fact, its popularity has created a problem for those seeking that lifestyle: scarcity of homes for sale.
Enter Calmante: a low-maintenance neighborhood by award-winning homebuilder Boulder Creek Neighborhoods. Calmante enjoys a unique vantage point in Superior. Perfectly situated at the southeast corner of Coalton Road and McCaslin Boulevard, Calmante faces thousands of acres of Boulder City and County Open Space, with access to miles of hiking and biking trails, and stunning mountain exposure.
To complement the scenic location, every modern convenience from gyms, restaurants, libraries and more, is easily accessible in Boulder, Louisville, or Denver. Whether it’s an early morning bike ride in the Open Space, catching a movie at Flatirons Mall, or heading to the mountains for the weekend, Calmante is perfectly situated to provide access to it all.
The neighborhood also provides a unique amenity – the time to do it all as well. The exceptional homes at Calmante offer a low-maintenance way of living – so you have more time to do the things you enjoy. Many outdoor maintenance chores are taken care of on the owner’s behalf, which frees up hours of precious time each week.
This lifestyle was a must-have for Chi Zhou, his wife Jin Ma, and their son Daniel Zhou. They moved to one of Boulder Creek’s townhomes in the first phase of Calmante three-and-a-half years ago from a single-family house elsewhere in Superior. They were so pleased with the community, the lifestyle, and the homes, that they are selling their townhome and will be moving into one of the new single-family Villas at Calmante being developed across the street.
Convenience is at the top of their list of things they like about the Calmante neighborhood. “It’s convenient to go to the Flatirons Mall, grocery shopping, restaurants, and it’s easy to go to Boulder, Golden, Denver, et cetera,” said Chi. He and Jin both work in Boulder.
They also value the quietness. “Most families are empty nesters; they don’t have kids, and it’s a quiet community.”
And also, importantly, “Energy efficiency. Due to the new building materials, we save 50 percent or more of the energy required [in other homes].” Energy efficient materials and techniques are yet another area where Boulder Creek’s dedication to a low-maintenance lifestyle shines through. Materials are selected for longevity and reliability, allowing you to worry less about your home and more on how to spend your new-found free time.
Chi and Jin truly value the low-maintenance aspect of the neighborhood.
He says, “No yard work in summer, no snow removal in winter!”
With their added free time Chi says, “We go hiking, or have afternoon tea on the weekend. Coalton Trail Park is nearby, sometimes we either bike or hike there.” Stories like this are the driving force behind Boulder Creek’s commitment to providing a low-maintenance lifestyle.
And why are they choosing to move from a Calmante townhome to a villa? Chi explained, “Besides those things [we] mentioned, we also have dreamed to have a new house with the following features: a ranch style home, walkout basement, the back deck faces the open space.”
Jin added, “What we are most looking forward to in our Villa at Calmante is to see our beautiful Entertainer’s Kitchen,” referring to the personalization options available in the kitchen of their new home, “and to sit on the back deck and enjoy the sunset!”
And Chi said with a smile, “Ah, what the Boulder Creek team is going to build will meet all of our needs! Things have been going well. The sales team is very friendly and experienced.”
Adrian Johnson, marketing coordinator at Boulder Creek Neighborhoods, said of the new homes being built, “The Villas at Calmante are low-maintenance, single-family patio homes that are designed around main-floor living. This is one of our newest communities; we’ve only been open for sale for a few weeks.”
With only 33 lots in this neighborhood in Superior, this is a limited chance for a new, single family home in a neighborhood that is growing in popularity and has very few homes for sale. Interested folks have been on the interest list for several years, waiting for their chance to claim a home in this exclusive community.
The Villas at Calmante range in size from 2990 to 3600 square feet, and 2 to 5 bedrooms. Designed with main-floor living in mind, everything you need on a daily basis is within easy reach including bedrooms, living areas, laundry, the garage, and even the outdoor living space. If you need a bit more space, the included lower levels feature a spacious rec room as well as plenty of space for guests and storage. With only 33 available homes in this one-of-a-kind neighborhood, Boulder Creek Neighborhoods expects the homes to sell quickly. The Villas at Calmante are starting in the $850s with homes finishing out over $1 million. Says Johnson: “We are very excited about this new community – it has been in progress for around two years! We are so glad to finally bring it to market.”
A low-maintenance home from Boulder Creek Neighborhoods is designed to make your life easy. Expect fewer chores and more “Lifefullness®,” a term coined by Boulder Creek Neighborhoods to mean homes and neighborhoods designed so you can live the life you have always dreamed about, but never had time for. At Boulder Creek, a home is more than a home – it’s a lifestyle, a choice to relax, celebrate and love life.
Whether your motivation is to experience more of life, reduce the stress that comes with home maintenance, right-size your home, or all of the above, you’re in the right place in a Boulder Creek neighborhood.
