Boulder-based builder Flatirons Homes, Inc. is making fast work of their new development, Parkside at Quail Ridge. Comprised of 93 townhome-style condos and 36 single-family homes, Parkside at Quail Ridge offers simplified living, energy-efficiency and all the benefits of outdoor activity, with none of the hassle.
Both the condos and the homes at Parkside at Quail Ridge feature ranch and two-story floor plans, but the star of the show is the neighborhood’s centralized, five-acre park that backs into open space. The City of Longmont is currently developing this area into Wertman Neighborhood Park. The master plan for this park currently includes wildflower gardens, pickleball courts, picnic areas, disc golf holes, an off-leash dog area, slackline and hammock posts, playgrounds and trails, along with plenty of open lawn space for spreading out a picnic blanket or throwing a frisbee.
Located just off I-25 with easy access to Boulder and the surrounding communities, Parkside at Quail Ridge presents an economic living option for the active family. “Parkside homes are great for young families and active home owners,” says Cauley Kim, sales manager for Flatirons Homes, Inc. “Having a green space in the center of the community means there’s a lot of room to play and run around, but it doesn’t add yard work to your list of chores.”
While Wertman Park and the open space are essentially your backyard when you live at Parkside, there are entertainment options further afield, as well. The neighborhood is just a few blocks from Highway 287, meaning residents can quickly access Denver and the airport. The popular Longmont Recreation Center and Longmont Museum and Cultural Center are one block away. Families will be thrilled to learn the Innovation Center of St. Vrain Valley Schools is just down the road. Longmont’s Downtown Creative District offers retail and shopping within a five-minute drive of your front door.
As always, energy efficiency is a priority for Flatirons Homes as they continue to develop Parkside at Quail Ridge. All homes are Energy Star certified and come with HERS (Home Energy Rating Standards) certificate that includes the home’s energy rating. Features like furnaces, windows, fiber cement lap siding, roofs and appliances are built to be as energy efficient as possible. Not only can residents enjoy the knowledge that their home puts less pressure on the environment, but the conscientious construction often results in lower utility
Parkside at Quail Ridge proves that single-story living isn’t just a downgrade for those with mobility impairment – single-level living can be comfortable and provide a sought-after simplicity. The idea of a condominium often leaves buyers nervous about neighborly noise, a concern that Flatirons Homes erases with a simple solution: the ranch-style condos are built side-by-side, which means no neighbors above or below.
Additionally, all ranch-style condos are end units, leaving just one shared wall with neighbors. Every ranch-style condominium at Parkside also features a single-car garage.
Should you choose the ranch-style family home at Parkside, buyers have the option of two, three and four bedroom plans, all of which feature a covered front porch and back patio. Luxurious touches like granite kitchen countertops, convenient main-floor laundry and spacious nine-foot ceilings make single-level living feel decadent. Some floor plans offer homeowners the option of a finished basement. Larger single-family home designs include a master suite with a five-piece bath and walk-in closet. All single-family homes come with a two-car garage.
Construction is wrapping up on the condos at Parkside at Quail Ridge. The remaining two buildings under construction are comprised of five and six units each. Construction on the single family homes is well under way, with just 15 homes remaining to be built.
“I really love working with all the homeowners at Parkside,”
says Kim. “I want our clients not only to enjoy their home but also the experience of buying it.”
Condos start at Parkside at Quail Ridge start at $339,900, while single family homes start at $449,900. As one of the least expensive new construction options in Boulder County, units and homes at this development are likely to go fast.
