Autumn is here at last, and what better time to feel the love for Colorado? With its spectacular mountain views, shimmering lakes, and sweeping plains, it’s never any wonder why our beautiful state is such a coveted place to live. But, with a blazing backdrop of turning leaves the season inspires an extra swell of appreciation. Not only that, cooler temps and golden aspen glow have us all embracing change, too. For prospective home buyers, that well may include looking forward to your perfect home, no matter what season you’re enjoying in life.

Brookfield’s Villa Portfolio homes offer plenty of pizazz.

Fall just may be the perfect time for purchasing a new property. The weather couldn’t be better, and striking that just-right fit in autumn opens up the opportunity to relax and enjoy the holidays around the corner. Better yet, buyers today can forego the exhaustive searching while creating their dream homes by buying new, with Brookfield Residential.

Brighton Crossings: Low-maintenance living at its best

When it comes to stress, moving house always features as one of life’s top events–but it doesn’t have to be that way. Brookfield Residential aims to offer you the perfect welcome, from the home-buying experience to your lifestyle options once moved in. For a premium example, you need look no further than Brighton Crossings, where low maintenance living means more time to make the most of top-notch amenities and a supreme, pure Colorado location.

Ranging from 1,461 to 1,632 square feet, Tealight Portfolio homes combine time-honored character with bright, clean, modern sensibility.

Located at South 50th Avenue south of East 168th, Brighton Crossings is serenely situated, a quiet haven within easy reach of all the conveniences. From King Soopers, Target, and Home Depot to a slew of tempting restaurants and appealing retail, everything you need is right at hand, with the bonus of easy access to the airport and metro area. And, with Downtown Brighton and idyllic Barr Lake State Park both just ten minutes away, this neighborhood leaves nothing to be desired.

Of course, at Brighton Crossings, there will be plenty of times you feel like staying put.  The premier, master-planned community was thoughtfully designed with the aim of cultivating community. This vision is evident in the numerous pocket parks, the large Venture Center recreation center and swimming pool, a second, smaller recreation center, two dog parks (one for big, the other for small dogs), and more. This past spring saw the opening of Volley Park, inclusive of two pickleball courts, a tennis court, picnic areas with covered pavilions, a playground, built-in yard games, and lots of grassy space encouraging residents to get out and enjoy.

Alongside the strong neighborhood appeal at Brighton Crossings is the allure of the homes themselves. Stunning, on-trend designs showcase everything you could wish for in low-maintenance living. What’s more, this blissful combo of quality, amenities, and ease comes affordably priced, starting in the mid $400s.

The Villa Portfolio: Where it’s good to share

Brookfield’s Villa Portfolio homes remind us just what a wonderful thing it is to share — while keeping your own personal space. With a marvelous main-floor suite of your very own, wide open living areas, a front porch and patio, these paired homes offer plenty of privacy and pizazz. With careful design providing privacy and uplifting natural light, Villa homes make you forget you share a wall with your neighbor. Moreover, paired homes bring the price of single-level living starting in the mid-$400s, truly a rare find in today’s hot market. Moreover, you get to take advantage of an exquisite opportunity to skip the bidding wars and buy new, choosing layouts that match your tastes, lifestyle and budget. Quick move-ins are also available.

The Villa Portfolio is comprised of three, stellar floor plans ranging from 1348 to 2043 square feet. All come with a 2-car garage and the option to finish the spacious basement.  Front yards are mowed, and snow is shoveled in the winter. With top quality, beauty, and comprehensive amenities throughout and outside of the community, this is indeed what you call good sharing. Quick move in homes will be ready to close by the end of the year.

North End Central Park: Where Every Day is Memorable

Located at the northern edge of Denver’s Central Park, where a great city meets great plains, the special, well-developed North End neighborhood reflects some of the city’s most inspired and exciting ideas. Homes have been intentionally designed to fully take advantage of the rolling landscape and breathtaking mountain views. What’s more, the premium location is a true celebration of a thriving community.

With 32,000+ residents and more than 100 businesses each adding warmth and signature flavor, Central Park offers a diverse, captivating mix of uses. Wherever you are, you can count on both a sense of genuine community, as well as access to the great outdoors. Brookfield Residential homes invite residents to step outside to greet their neighbors, from porches, balconies, and courtyards. And certainly, feeling the summer sunshine from these carefully cultivated outdoor spaces is all the invitation needed to explore any of the 60+ parks, 62 miles of trails, and expansive open spaces.

If your vision of a beautiful, single-family home feels out of reach, rest assured. There are gems to be found, when you know where to look for them. And, you need look no further than North End Central Park.  

Tealight Portfolio

How often do we hear the phrase, “charming old home”? The Tealight Portfolio takes what could be considered cliche and makes it a marvel. As smart as they are beautiful, these classic homes have a gemlike quality, with every facet carefully polished. Kitchens, for example, feature professionally designed Mastercraft Cabinet layouts with crown molding and light rail, Whirlpool stainless steel appliances, and quartz countertops with under-mount sinks. Living spaces are enhanced by LED disk lights, wood shelving in all closets and pantries, and numerous other tasteful touches that elevate each home.

Ranging from 1,461 to 1,632 square feet, these homes combine time-honored character with bright, clean, modern sensibility. Not only that, they’re designed for efficient living, too. Brookfield Residential’s myCommand smart home automation offers homeowners high-tech functionality that wasn’t available in the past. New homes can be built fully connected, brimming with smart home accessories that offer a seamless user experience versus retrofitting an older home with similar tech upgrades. Protect and equip your haven with front door smart lock hardware, smart garage door openers, a camera linked doorbell, Wi-Fi extended coverage, smart switches, USB outlets, and more. All this amounts to easier and more enjoyable living, and allows for more hours each day for pure enjoyment. Starting in the $500s, there are six new homes available, ready to close by year’s end.
