Three years ago Markel Homes put its design team to work to redefine condo living in Boulder County. The result is corner locations only, large windows on both exterior walls and open floor plans that create the bright, spacious feel in the latest round of easy living condo lofts under construction in the vibrant community of North End.
Easy living condo lofts
Markel’s solution for the buyer wanting minimal maintenance and no yard responsibility features a contemporary design unlike anything available to condo seekers in Boulder County. The unique quad footprint puts every condo in a corner location, with huge windows to capture natural light and, in many units, incredible views.
The single-level floor plan is configured as open living, dining, and kitchen areas, a master suite with double-sink bath and walk-in closet, and a second bedroom and full bath. Maple cabinetry, solid surface countertops, gas range and a peninsula with breakfast bar create a great-looking and easy-to-use kitchen. Each loft features a patio or deck for outdoor living and a single-car garage with extra storage. The building is equipped with an elevator and a secure front entry for added protection and peace of mind.
Lock ‘n leave convenience
The easy living concept gives condo owners the freedom to come and go without hassle or worry, for a weekend or a month. No grass to mow, no snow to shovel. Retired empty nesters love the ability to pick up and travel for weeks at a time. Young people like the way easy living accommodates spontaneity and last-minute planning. Everyone appreciates a lifestyle with less stress.
The condo lofts are located just north of South Boulder Road at the south entrance to the North End community. The shops, restaurants and music scene in downtown Louisville are less than ten minutes away. The shops and services on 95th Street are even closer. Commuters to Denver, Boulder and DIA enjoy easy access to major thoroughfares.
Outdoor enthusiasts love North End’s link to the trail system woven throughout the area, including to Waneka Lake and park in Lafayette. A neighborhood footpath leads to Hecla Lake Open Space, a beautiful wildlife refuge and conservation area. The views of the Back Range and grassy open space make a walk through the neighborhood a relaxing, peaceful experience in every season.
Markel’s two-bed/two-bath condo lofts currently under construction are moving quickly, with four of the twelve selling less than two weeks after they were released. Pricing ranges from $389,900 to $429,900. Contact North End Sales Manager Michele Steward at 303.604.9196, send an e-mail to Michele@MarkelHomes.com or stop by the North End sales center located at 1805 Blue Star Lane in Louisville.

Condo construction schedule
The first round of condo lofts, all sold, are in the final stages of construction. Buyers will be moving in this summer. The lofts currently under construction and available now for pre-sale will be ready for occupancy in late 2016. Markel plans to build one more easy living condo 12-plex at North End in 2017.
