LONGMONT/LOUISVILLE – Location is the golden word in the vocabulary of home buying. Where we live influences how we live. In Boulder County, access to walking paths and bike trails is a must. Buyers value mountain, foothills and open space views for their calming effect on the mind and body. Exercise enthusiasts look for proximity to a gym, rec center or yoga studio, and coffee drinkers appreciate a local coffee shop just minutes from home.
As Colorado residents and home builders for decades, the folks at Markel Homes put location front and center when creating communities that people love. New homes are currently available in two Markel Homes communities in Boulder County. Each offers its own brand of the enviable Colorado lifestyle and all-important location amenities.
Contemporary two-story homes in Louisville
Drive through the Block 10 neighborhood at North End to get a feel for the flurry of activity in this popular Louisville community. Two single-family Falcon homes on Snowberry Lane are move-in ready, with another four coming on this spring. Pricing starts at $759,900. The bright and open main floor, modern finishes, and ease of living in a well-designed, beautifully styled home make these 3-bed/2.5-bath Falcons particularly appealing.
The artfully-designed Columbine plan is nearly complete on Block 18. The open living, dining and kitchen as well as the master suite and laundry are on the main level, with 2 additional beds, another bath and an open loft upstairs. A full basement and a 3-car garage allow space for everything. Priced at $859,900, this home will be complete this spring. Only a handful of homes remain in Block 18. These larger home sites – some with mountain and lake views – are available for home buyers who want to engage with the building process from the ground up.
Easy living options at North End
The six-plex of town homes located on Hecla Way has just been completed. Three town homes are still available, all interior units with master and mini-master suites. The town home floor plan features something new from Markel Homes – a flex space at street level, with its own entrance, large south-facing window, front courtyard and bath. The space is ideally suited for a home office, studio or guest bedroom. A two-car garage is located behind the flex space. The kitchen and great room are on the second level, with ample outdoor living on the two large decks. The third floor houses the master and mini-master suites. The town homes are on the market for $624,900. Markel Homes will include the refrigerator and washer/dryer (a $3K+ value) for home buyers who purchase
in February. A furnished model at 1459 Hecla Way is available for touring.
A 3-bed/2.5-bath two-story duplex featuring an open plan and outdoor living will be ready in March. Priced at $639,900 and located at 1352 Snowberry Lane, the contemporary duplex is equipped with skylights, gas fireplace, large windows, and a gas range and breakfast bar. The unfinished lower level accommodates future expansion as a rec room, fourth bedroom and third full bath.
Ground is breaking now on the first 12-plex of condo lofts in the Block 10 neighborhood. With every unit in a preferred corner location, the 2-bed/2-bath condos are selling quickly. Only four remain, starting at $430,500. Buyers are attracted to the North End location as well as the large windows, one-car garage, secured front entry and elevator access.
