It’s now or never on select properties at North End

LOUISVILLE – Buyers keen on finding new construction in Louisville, take note: North End, the hugely popular community from Markel Homes, is winding down. The window is closing on contemporary Falcons and easy living town homes in a community featuring Hecla Lake Open Space, access to trails, and nearby restaurants, shops and services. The last of the two-story Falcons are move-in-ready, and the three high-style low-maintenance town homes available now are the last town homes to go up at North End.

Last call on contemporary Falcons
The three-bedroom/two-and-a-half-bath two-story Falcon features bright and open main floor living. Huge windows, gorgeous hardwood flooring and modern finishes deliver style in an easy-to-live-in, well-designed interior. Buyers wishing to add a fourth bedroom, third full bath and rec or media room will appreciate the spacious unfinished lower level with rough-in plumbing. Three large egress windows provide great natural light. Pricing for the Falcons starts at $719,900 and includes central air conditioning, landscaping and fencing.

Last chance for easy living town homes
Three high-style town homes available now are the last town homes Markel Homes will build at North End. Conveniently located one block north of South Boulder Road, the town homes offer come-and-go convenience and cost-saving Energy Star® efficiencies. The tri-level plan features a unique flex space with its own bath, an attached garage and a courtyard at street level. The mid level has open living, dining and kitchen, with two spacious decks. Dual master suites occupy the upper level. The town homes are south-facing with huge windows and skylights. Pricing starts at $624,900 and includes central air conditioning.

The last three town homes to be built at North End are move-in-ready, featuring dual master suites, street-level flex space, south-facing exposure and two huge decks.

Move-in-ready duplex
On the market for $639,900, the finished duplex located at 1352 Snowberry Lane, Louisville, features a three-bedroom/two-and-a-half bath plan in an open design with skylights, large windows, a gas range, breakfast bar and outdoor living. The unfinished lower level accommodates future expansion as a recreation room, fourth bedroom and third full bath. In addition to its great location, the duplex requires minimal maintenance and offers lock-and-leave convenience.

Louisville at your fingertips
Situated in the southwest corner of North End, stylish Block 10 features an enviable list of location amenities. The shops and services along South Boulder Road are a walk or bike ride away. Jump on the neighborhood walking path that circles Hecla Lake Open Space. The new Highway 42 pedestrian underpass, scheduled to start construction this fall, will connect the Block 10 area with South Boulder Road and the shops, restaurants and music scene in downtown Louisville. Block 10 commuters have easy access to Boulder, Longmont and the cities along the Highway 36 corridor en route
to Denver.

Larger homes with 3-car garages
Buyers looking for a larger single-family home on a larger lot have two great options at North End. The Columbine ($859,900) and the Ridgeway ($899,900) are nearing completion. The two-story Columbine offers the hottest feature in single-family living today: the main floor master suite. Large, plentiful windows in both homes bathe the interior in beautiful natural light. There’s additional living or work-from-home space in the main floor study and upper level loft, and room to make the home even larger in the unfinished lower level. The Ridgeway offers an optional fourth bedroom finish. Both homes have a three-car garage and handy owner’s entry with built-in bench, wall hooks and coat closet. The homes are located at 1901 and 1909 Blue Star Lane, Louisville.

Custom lots and custom homes
Buyers interested in a custom home will find prime lot availability on the quiet cul-de-sac in the far northeast corner of North End. Block 20 is the last phase to be released for building and, in many ways, the most coveted. Featuring just ten lots, the cul-de-sac sits adjacent to Hecla Lake Open Space, with the snow-capped peaks of the Back Range in full view. The Markel Homes architectural team is developing a series of custom home designs exclusively earmarked for Block 20. Buyers can expect spacious and bright interiors, high-style finishes, open plans, impressive windows and ample outdoor living. The majority of the homes will offer mountain, water and open space views.

Tour furnished models
Stop by the North End Sales Center at 1805 Blue Star Lane, Louisville, to tour models of the contemporary Falcon in Block 10 and the tri-level town home featuring flex space, two large decks, and mini and master suites. The Sales Center is open daily from 11 to 5 p.m. (Tuesday 2 to 5 p.m.). North End Sales Manager Michele Steward can be reached by phone 303.604.9196 or e-mail
