A Retreat From the Hustle and Bustle of City Life
Picture a neighborhood that’s a little hideaway, off the beaten path, with a great sense of community and quaintness. Now imagine that community is secluded, yet close enough to the Diagonal Highway that its residents can be in Boulder in 15 minutes. In the words of Jessica Champlin, Vice President of Marketing for Boulder Creek Neighborhoods, that secluded but accessible feel is exactly what makes the low-maintenance Tramonto neighborhood in Southwest Longmont unique.
The quiet, intimate neighborhood of Tramonto, near the Renaissance Master Planned community, offers its residents a retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life while still providing proximity to not only the amenities that Longmont has to offer, like the brand new Village at the Peaks mall, but also immediate access to the highway for trips to Boulder, Denver, and all of colorful Colorado.
“One of the reasons why people are so interested in Tramonto is because they want to get out of Boulder itself, without going too far away,” says Seth Williamson, Sales Concierge at Boulder Creek Neighborhoods. This intimate, private neighborhood is still only a short 15-minute drive from Boulder, which allows its residents to focus on living their lives first, and worrying about their homes second. As Jessica Champlin puts it, “The Tramonto community is ideal for people wanting to take back their free time from home maintenance chores and spend it travelling, walking, hiking and being active.”
And many experienced buyers are looking for just that: a home that’s right-sized, enabling them to live the life they always intended, but never had time for. A large home that no longer suits your needs can be a real liability when it comes to free time. Imagine the traveling you could do, or the time you could spend with loved ones, or simply taking more time to enjoy all the beauty Colorado and the West have to offer – if only lawn mowing, snow shoveling, and outdoor maintenance chores were managed on your behalf. As Brian Fink, Vice President of Sales at Boulder Creek puts it, this breezy, “low-maintenance lifestyle does allow for people to go out and do things they want to do.” And, at the end of the day, isn’t that what life is all about? That’s why Tramonto and Boulder Creek’s commitment to building beyond the walls – to designing their homes and neighborhoods around an idyllic lifestyle and landscape – becomes so important to buyers who are tired of outdoor home maintenance chores and Boulder’s rapidly ballooning housing market.
In fact, the difficulty of navigating Boulder’s housing market helps set Boulder Creek Neighborhoods apart from other builders in the Front Range,. Many buyers looking to right-size their homes face a tough choice: new homes that are too large to suit their needs, or “fixer-uppers” that are a more manageable size. Neither is a particularly attractive option. With low-maintenance homes that are perfectly sized between 1660 and 3140 square feet including the lower level, easy to navigate main-floor living, and beautiful community gardens, park, and the towering beauty of Long’s Peak, Tramonto offers an ideal solution for buyers who are seeking a low-maintenance lifestyle and are frustrated with the Boulder housing market.
For many buyers, the main-floor living available in Tramonto’s homes is the most attractive thing of all. Many want to not only downsize in terms of square footage, but also in regards to ease of mobility around the home. Tramonto, like all Boulder Creek Neighborhood homes, offers residents ranch-style floor plans, which enable buyers to have easy access to the master bedroom, study, laundry, outdoor living spaces, all on one floor. “We provide low-maintenance living down to the construction details,” says Jessica Champlin, referring to energy efficient features and durable construction techniques. For many buyers, this philosophy translates to less worry about their homes, and, in turn, the ability to live a full and active life.
For Boulder Creek Neighborhoods, it all comes down to bringing joy to buyers – whether by simplifying their lifestyles, or empowering them to do more of what they love. “From a builder’s perspective, we feel the same the joyfulness in building these homes and communities that we try to bring buyers,” says Brian Fink. This sense of joy is evident during a quick tour of one of their model homes at Tramonto: the Solstice. The spacious, open floor plan of this home embodies Boulder Creek Neighborhood’s commitment to meeting buyers’ needs by offering a flex space for work or play, and a relaxing outdoor living space.
Phase 2 of Tramonto in the Renaissance Master Planned Community in Southwest Longmont will become available in late April, with additional homesites that will offer the same unique features that sets Boulder Creek Neighborhoods apart from other builders in the area.
Longmont is abundant natural beauty; and easy access to Denver and Boulder mean that city life is never too far away. Tucked just a bit off the beaten path in popular Southwest Longmont, the paired patio homes at Tramonto start in the high $400s and are the right blend of urban conveniences and rustic Colorado beauty – complimented by the simplicity of low-maintenance, main floor living.
