It’s hard to go wrong with either of these emerging Toll Brothers neighborhoods in the Front Range’s dynamic northwest corridor.

Now you can buy a luxury home with all the choices and character of a custom build – without all the hassle. Toll Brothers has been making that scenario come true for aspiring homebuyers since 1967. And every year it seems that the luxury builder’s impressive design-studio personalization tools make the Front Range’s best step-up homes more attractive than ever.

Right now Toll Brothers is running a national sales event, which means it’s also easier than ever to get into a high-end home in Boulder County’s coveted Flatiron Meadows or the nearby resort-style Candelas community in Jefferson County.

Tale of two distinct master planned communities

It’s hard to go wrong with either of these emerging Toll Brothers neighborhoods in the Front Range’s dynamic northwest corridor. Flatiron Meadows, which opened in early 2017, is a premier master-planned community in Boulder County. The well-positioned neighborhood in the heart of Erie is about 10 minutes to downtown Boulder. The central location near a burgeoning technology center and adjacent to abundant outdoor recreational opportunities, shopping and dining means that often residents can live – and play – near work.

Flatiron Meadows features two collections of single-story, main-floor master and two-story home designs which deliver on both luxury and value. The Retreat Collection range from 2,500 to 3,600 square feet and range from the low $500s to $700s. The Vista Collection of larger home designs start at 3,400 square feet and top out at 4,200 square feet. Vista homes range from the mid $600s to the $900s.

Flatiron Meadows is anchored around a large central park, where everyone can hang out. “It’s a great place for you or your kids to meet new friends,” says Mark Bailey, Toll Brothers Colorado division president.

Candelas, which came to market last May, comprises oversized walkout home sites with impressive city, water and mountain views. Located in West Arvada, only 25 minutes from Boulder, this foothills resort-style community is the largest residential master plan of its kind in town. Candelas is filled with single-family homes ranging from 3,400 to 4,200 square feet with three to six bedrooms and three to five baths, plus comfort amenities galore. Homes here finish from the $800s to more than $1 million.

Residents also have access to two recreation centers with state-of-the-art fitness rooms, two pools, 13.5 miles of trails, nearly 200 acres of open space, five parks, and a community garden, plus quick access to popular recreation areas like recreational destinations like Coal Creek Canyon, White Ranch Park, Pattridge Open Space, Standley Lake and North Table Mountain.

Both Flatiron Meadows and Candelas deliver on luxury and location, but also another important factor for homebuyers in Colorado: schools. On-site neighborhood schools belonging to Boulder Valley and Jefferson County school districts mean with each home purchase you get access to brand-new, walk-to education facilities in some of the top districts in the state.

Standard and choose-your-own luxury options

All Toll Brothers homes fall in the luxury category. And with over five decades of service in
22 states around the country, the Fortune 500 Company knows what high-end homebuyers want for a modern lifestyle. In every Flatiron Meadows and Candelas home, homebuyers will find beautiful open floor plans meant for transitioning easily throughout the day, not to mention superior entertaining.

Special open-concept interior features include two-story great rooms and luxurious master bathrooms, as well as gourmet kitchens with large center islands and convenient breakfast nooks. Main-floor bedroom configuration options fit every buyer’s needs, too, including dual master setups for accommodating aging parents, boomerang kids or extended guests. Outside, yards go up to a quarter acre, and many home sites in Candelas back to open space.

But those are just the standard amenities. What Toll Brothers homes in Flatiron Meadows and Candelas do so well is give future homeowners more say in making a house feel like an oasis. Toll Brothers calls it personalization. It’s more like perfection.

Considered a pioneer in new-home choice, Toll Brothers’ vast structural choices are the company’s calling card. It’s built into the company’s DNA. Home personalization takes place in the design studio, a space made to meet the needs of each customer, family and lifestyle. And that process can mean adding additional bedrooms, bathrooms, square footage and more.

“Over the years, people have come to know that we offer that special kind of personalization – and a lot more choice than competition,” Bailey says. “So you go to design studio and pick out everything in your home so you are different from your neighbors.”

This is Toll Brothers way of cutting through the cookie-cutter home stereotype sometimes associated with master planned communities. And one of the best ways to get a sense of the grand capacity for each model is to choose a decorated show home where available. Walking into a spacious, stylish Toll Brothers home will give you the confidence that you too can achieve your dream step-up household in a location that will make you smile.
