LOVELAND – Loveland, you must be blushing. And your trophy shelf is getting pretty crowded.
Hardly a year seems to go by without this vital Northern Colorado city garnering another national award or recognition. “Best Place to Revitalize Your Life,” says AARP. A “Best Place to Live,” notes Money Magazine. A Gallup poll gave the area third place honors on its “Ten Happiest Cities” survey. The Loveland lifestyle is a desirable mix of everything a Northern Colorado small town can offer. But to really “get it,” you have to see this for yourself.
You couldn’t pick a better starting place than The Lakes at Centerra. Residents of this award-winning master-planned community enjoy lakeside living with miles of adjoining trails and panoramic views that seem to go on forever.
Wonderland Homes, a master homebuilder with a 50-year legacy in Colorado, has recently introduced two new home collections at The Lakes at Centerra: The Tranquility and the Summit series, priced from the mid $400,000s to the high $600,000s.
Tranquility at The Lakes at Centerra: Low-maintenance patio homes
The Tranquility series brings you the very best of main level, low-maintenance living. Three unique, ranch-style floor plans are designed to make both entertaining and everyday life a breeze. Enjoy the Colorado sunshine in your own private outdoor living area. Indoor and outdoor living flows seamlessly throughout these thoughtful floor plans.
“There’s a real custom feel to these homes, thanks to the luxurious features that we build into every Tranquility home,” says Mike Davidson, vice president of sales and marketing. “Buyers are really responding to the lock-and-leave lifestyle in this one-of-a-kind community.”
The large gourmet kitchens and wide-open great rooms are where living, dining and cooking all come together. Active families love the practical details, like mud rooms, tech hubs and roomy three-car garages.
The Acadia ranch model offers 3,076 finished square feet, with two bedrooms. A guest suite and entryway courtyard are included.
The Berkshire features 3,328 finished square feet, two bedrooms and a home office. A guest suite and entryway courtyard are included.
The Capri plan includes a generous 3,791 finished square feet, with three bedrooms and a home office. An optional covered deck and guest suite are included.
The Summit at The Lakes at Centerra: Two-story homes reach the pinnacle of design
Large families are a perfect fit for Wonderland Homes’ Summit home series. These are the largest-scale homes in Wonderland’s portfolio, ranging from 3,400 to just over 4,000 square feet. These special homes are situated on some of the largest, best located, and most appealing home sites at The Lakes at Centerra.
Four unique home plans offer something for everyone. The Aberdeen, at 3,443 finished square feet, features four bedrooms, an upstairs laundry and open loft. The Belize, with 3,605 finished square feet, also features four bedrooms, an upstairs laundry and open loft.
The Concord, with 3,773 finished square feet and four bedrooms, includes a second master suite on the main level. The Douglas plan, the largest of The Summit series, offers 4,005 finished square feet, an upstairs laundry and loft. This floor plan also includes a hard-to-find four-car tandem garage.
Two new Summit plans, including one with a main-floor master, will debut soon. Elevation options for each home add diversity and street appeal to the community. Additional special features include owner’s entries, main-level offices and expansive kitchen islands. Some plans also offer teen suites.
“Our Summit series homes are designed with entertaining and outdoor living in mind,” Mike Davidson says. “The interiors are dramatic, filled with a light and spaciousness that comes from multiple vaulted ceilings and generous window placement. We don’t cut corners on the sizes and placement of windows, even on the sides of homes.”
Buyers work directly with professional interior designers to choose the fixtures and finishes of their new home. Wonderland’s standard finishes are equivalent to other builders’ expensive upgrades.
Wonderland Homes received the 2015 Energy Star Certified Homes Market Leader Award for energy efficiency. This is “Green you can believe in.” Architects, energy consultants and design teams all work together to create a home that consumes less, yet feels comfortable year-round and saves you substantial money on your energy bills. All Wonderland homes are inspected by a third-party provider to ensure quality and energy efficiency. You can buy your home with confidence.
Each Wonderland Home comes with a robust two-year home warranty – twice as long as those typically offered by other builders. You can count on outstanding customer care and builder integrity, from your first visit to closing.
