Boulder Creek Neighborhoods offers three paths to Lifefullness.
The town of Superior is gaining nationwide attention for its high quality of life and desirability. Routinely ranked among the top places to live in the country, Superior has become one of the most sought-after areas in Boulder County. After a several-year drought in new home construction in Superior, Louisville-based homebuilder Boulder Creek Neighborhoods has introduced several new home collections geared towards buyers in all stages of life.
“While Superior is a special area and a favorite in Boulder County, there’s hasn’t been a boom of new construction here in the last few years, so the fact that we’re offering not just one but three new communities is significant,” noted David Sinkey, founder and president of Boulder Creek Neighborhoods. He continues, “It has really been decades since this mix of home types have been available in Superior.” Boulder Creek’s three Superior communities include The Villas at Calmante, Rogers Farm, and the upcoming patio home neighborhood of Lanterns at Rock Creek.
Nestled between Downtown Superior and the beloved Coal Creek Trail, Boulder Creek’s newest neighborhood, Rogers Farm, is located near the corner of McCaslin Blvd. and Coal Creek Drive, just across McCaslin from the Superior Town Center. The neighborhood is now open for sales, and given its incredible location, are expected to move quickly. “The neighborhood will consist of only 26 single-family homes,” Sinkey said. “A fun fact about Rogers Farm is that these lots were originally marked in the early 1900s, so there’s some great continuity with the original design of the town of Superior.” Sinkey explained that this neighborhood holds true to Boulder Creek’s commitment to low-maintenance living. “We will carry on Boulder Creek Neighborhoods’ tradition of low-maintenance living, of course, but unlike some of our other home collections, Rogers Farm will offer both traditional two-story floor plans, as well as a main-floor master layout.”
In addition to spacious layouts and stylish architecture, homes at Rogers Farm offer unparalleled garage options: two-, three- and even four-car garages are available, as well as a finished space above the garage for an art studio, craft space, or a guest room. “We are really looking forward to seeing how our buyers use these unique garage layouts,” says Sinkey. Homes at Rogers Farm offer between 2400 and 2800 finished square feet, and are available now, starting in the $700s, and expected to finish in the $800s to $1 million.
Lanterns at Rock Creek
Coming soon to the Rock Creek neighborhood of Superior, The Lanterns series of paired patio homes is a great fit for those seeking to “right-size” their home. At 2,000 to 2,300 square feet, homes at Lanterns at Rock Creek are great for empty-nesters and baby boomers, Sinkey said, meaning they offer the open kitchen and living areas that many buyers seek, and they also offer the master suite all on the main level of the home. What they lack is the unnecessary extra bedrooms, the daily trips up and down stairs, and the burden of lawn-mowing and snow shoveling.
Lanterns’ traditional style suits the established, tree-lined community of Rock Creek. Available for sale in July, Lanterns is expected to sell swiftly. “We’ve heard from many current Rock Creek residents who treasure the neighborhood, and are ready to downsize from their larger, aging family home. The patio homes at Lanterns were designed with these folks in mind,” says Sinkey. When complete, Lanterns at Rock Creek will count 62 ranch-style paired patio homes and is the next generation of the best-selling Lanterns floor plans of Boulder Creek’s Louisville Steel Ranch neighborhood.
Lanterns at Rock Creek is expected to open for sale in July and will start in the $700s.
The Villas at Calmante
With well over half of the homes already sold, The Villas at Calmante showcases a Tuscany-meets-Colorado vibe, Sinkey said. Stucco in Tuscan reds and browns blends with intricate stonework and tile roofing. “The floor plans at The Villas are really special,” Sinkey said. “We regularly meet with buyers coming out of Boulder, seeking to downsize, and wanting to take advantage of Calmante’s incredible location,” he says, nodding towards the thousands of acres of Boulder County open space located just across the street from The Villas. The homes at The Villas feature main- floor living with finished lower levels (some walk out home sites are still available). “Homeowners love that they can personalize their homes with high-end options like Thermador or Wolf kitchens, and are able to work with our professional interior design teams to select finishes to match their personal styles,” says Sinkey.
The Villas at Calmante are available now and are available in the high $900s, with many homes finishing around $1.3M.
Low-maintenance living choices in Superior
“Low-maintenance living is all about the ability to use your free time to pursue your passions, rather than spending those precious hours on outdoor home maintenance chores,” says Sinkey. “We get really excited about what we’re building in Superior,” he continues, “as it’s really the first time we’ve offered such a diversity of product, tailored towards different buyers at different price points.” The Villas at Calmante and Lanterns at Rock Creek both feature main floor living and cater especially to those seeking to downsize their home. Rogers Farm offers families a more traditional layout without giving up the ease of a low-maintenance lifestyle. Between a spacious family home or a right-sized patio home, buyers can make the choice to suit their lifestyle, and their current and future needs. The great news is they can find all of these options from Boulder Creek in Superior.
“It’s important to think about how much work your current home demands,” Sinkey advised.
“Our buyers are finding that they just need an extra bedroom or another parking space in their garage. Others are thinking that their current home is just too big for their current and family needs. Some are even coming to major realizations that the design of their current home is preventing major lifestyle evolutions that enhance your daily life.”
The cherry on top
Finally, Boulder Creek’s Superior communities offer unparalleled locations – in the center of all that makes this charming town what it is. Superior presents endless opportunities, including walking and biking the Coal Creek Trail, proximity to skiing, a short drive to the Denver International Airport and a plethora of retail centers, shopping boutiques, craft breweries, art galleries, health clubs and medical facilities, cultural events and interesting restaurants in revitalized downtown Superior and throughout Boulder County. Truly a gem on the Front Range, Superior showcases an unrivaled location with a small-town atmosphere and big city amenities. Combined with Boulder Creek’s reputation for exceptional craftsmanship and a commitment to low-maintenance living, homes at Rogers Farm, Lanterns at Rock Creek, and The Villas at Calmante bring matchless opportunities to families ready to relocate to one of the best places to live in Colorado.
Rogers Farm’s opening weekend is going on now. Presenting a limited opportunity, more than half of the homes at The Villas at Calmante are sold, and Lanterns at Rock Creek will draw residents eager for a low-maintenance lifestyle beginning in July. Informational appointments are being held now, and are available by calling 303.309.0088.
