Flatiron Meadows is a luxury home community that has a long list of qualities that make it an ideal place to call home. From its coveted Erie location within the award-winning Boulder County School District, to the remarkable livable home designs that are available, Flatiron Meadows has everything one might need for luxurious family living.
The town of Erie, which was ranked one of the top 20 places to live in America by Money Magazine, provides all the benefits of small-town living within the established, well-known county of Boulder. The town’s appeal is enhanced by its close proximity to a number of larger communities. With just a short, 15-minute drive, residents of Flatiron Meadows can be in Broomfield, Niwot and Boulder. In just over half an hour, one can reach Denver International Airport. Interlocken and downtown Denver are also easily accessed from Flatiron Meadows. The central location and small-town charm of Erie is hard to beat.
A resident of Flatiron Meadows need not leave their community for an exhilarating weekend or afternoon. Natural space is a prominent component of the community, which is bordered by open space and features an extensive trail network. One of Flatiron Meadows’ most impressive amenities is Star Meadows Park, which just opened in August of 2018. The seven-acre neighborhood park features ballfields, barbecue grills, basketball courts, soccer fields, a large shelter perfect for outdoor birthday parties and a state-of-the-art playground. The innovative, space-themed playground includes features like disc swings, sculptural play structures, a climbing half-moon rock and an Apollo spinner. Star Meadows Park ensures hours of enriching, entertaining play for all ages, just a short walk from any home within the Flatiron Meadows community.
Perhaps one of the most significant and sought-after qualities of Flatiron Meadows is that it is zoned for the Boulder Valley School District. Boulder Valley consistently ranks among the top three large school districts in the Front Range, and often ranks as number one. Students from Boulder Valley schools score far above average on standardized tests and are awarded millions of dollars of scholarships every year. Meadowlark School, serving students from pre-kindergarten through 8th grade, is located within Flatiron Meadows, offering the nostalgic opportunity for children to walk to and from school within the safety of their own neighborhood. Meadowlark just opened last year, so it provides students with a modern, high-tech environment for learning 21st century skills.
While Flatiron Meadows could rest on the laurels of its location, it doesn’t. The homes themselves are just as valuable and unique as their surroundings. Toll Brothers has a long-standing reputation as “America’s Luxury Home Builder.” Toll Brothers’ homes are the epitome of quality, from the overall design down to the tiniest finishing detail. There are two model homes in Flatirons Meadows: the Dillon and the Ralston.
The Dillon, part of the Toll Brothers Retreat Collection, clocks in at just over 3,450 square feet. Luxury features abound in the Dillon’s layout, including garage space for three cars, a second-story master with spa-like bathroom features and a gigantic walk-in closet. A covered entryway opens into the two-story foyer, where guests eyes are drawn to the beautifully-designed staircase. The enormous great room boasts a cozy fireplace, and the Dillon’s kitchen is designed for a chef, featuring a center island, plentiful counter space and a spacious, walk-in pantry. Other impressive details of the Dillon include an abundant outdoor space and covered patio at the rear of the home.
The Ralston, part of the Toll Brothers Vistas Collection, also offers abundant space for both living and entertaining, including vaulted ceilings and a stately, formal dining room. At over 3,500 square feet, the Ralston features four to five bedrooms, three to four bathrooms and garage space for three or four cars. A covered front porch opens into the sunny, window-rich great room. Like the Dillon, the Ralston features a perfectly-appointed luxury kitchen with plenty of pantry space, a gorgeous central island, and a breakfast nook. The master bedroom features not one, but two walk-in closets. One particularly unique feature of the Ralston plan is the spacious loft that overlooks the great room, a feature younger family members are sure to love.
While the perfect floor plan is important, the process of designing and building a luxury home is an involved one. Without the right team of people, that process can be difficult and unpleasant. From the sales office to the design team to the construction team, Toll Brothers guarantees a positive and pleasant home building experience.
The “Design Your Own Home” tool on the Toll Brothers’ website, tollbrothers.com, allows you to start with a floor plan and explore the myriad of add-ons and extensions available to you. Buyers can see how a chosen floor plan looks with an expanded garage bay, an alternate layout for the great room and front entrance, or the addition of a fifth bedroom on the second floor. Additionally, each floor plan comes in three attractive exteriors for further personalization of your home. The Toll Brothers website also features three dimensional and virtual tours, photos, site plans and the Toll Brothers 3D Kitchen Visualizer, which allows home buyers to explore different materials and color options for their personalized kitchen.
