Life is a pleasure every day at Skyestone, Taylor Morrison’s new 55+ residential community.
With the Flatirons as a backdrop, Skyestone is a dynamic 518-home master-planned community that blends the beauty of the outdoors with modern Colorado living. Residents enjoy miles of trails for biking, hiking or running, plenty of open space, and Skyestone’s exclusive indoor and outdoor amenities.
These one-story, single-family homes come with the newest features to assure comfortable and safe living. Utilizing the high-quality building that Taylor Morrison is known for, the homes include the latest in materials and finishes, energy-saving appliances, designer kitchens and distinctive details. Customer care includes design consultation, and taking into account the owner’s personal preferences throughout the building process.
Open floor plans complement Colorado living with thoughtfully distinguished spaces and functional designs. The spacious lots, from 5,000 to 6,000 square feet, feature views and open spaces. Large windows and optional patio spaces invite even more light in. The homes range from 1,584 to 2,588 square feet, 2 to 3 bedrooms with den, 2 to 2.5 baths, 2- to 3-car garages. Partial basements are included as a standard feature; finished basements are optional.
The time has never been better to purchase a new home at Skyestone and other Taylor Morrison communities in the Denver area. If you close on select move-in ready homes by Dec. 30, 2016, Taylor Morrison will pay all the closing costs up to $7,500. Restrictions apply. Contact the sales center at Skyestone for more information at 303.325.2444.
Skyestone is perfectly situated in Broomfield, with easy access to Boulder and Denver. With 170 acres of land to build on, Skyestone boasts beautiful homes on well-appointed lots that have views of the Flatirons and the Rocky Mountains. With a “mountain modern” aesthetic, Skyestone provides residents with a relaxed way of living that honors the abundant outdoor space available.
“Residents get to access miles of biking and hiking paths that connect with the extensive trail systems in both Broomfield and Westminster,” says Kathy Curtis of the sales team. “Skyestone has permanent open space to the west and south and is close to the mountains. Hiking, mountain biking and skiing is all within easy reach. It really is an incredible place to live.”
Much of Skyestone’s appeal is the year-round availability of resort-style amenities. In July, residents were thrilled at the opening of The Lodge, a stunning new building to house the community’s events, activities, and recreational and athletic facilities.
The Lodge functions as the central meeting point for the community and is the ideal location for meeting with friends or making new ones. Besides an outdoor swimming pool and spa, sun deck, social game areas, gathering spaces and fire pit, pool table and more, yoga classes and social events are offered on the lawn and in the Lodge’s six distinct interior spaces.
There is a state-of-the-art fitness center, yoga studio, pool table, Bocce Ball and Pickle Ball courts, which are a favorite at Skyestone, big screen televisions, and a demonstration kitchen to be used for cooking classes, guest chefs and events. The community garden, which produces an abundance of vegetables and herbs, is another popular pastime.
The Villas Collection
The Villas Collection at Skyestone is coming soon.
“We are planning to break ground on the model in November,” says Kathy Curtis. “We don’t have a price range or floor plans to distribute at this time, but should have by the first of November. We expect them to be attractively priced, and the size is 1,200 to 1,450 square feet, with at least 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2-car garage, some with basements, some without.”
These homes epitomize the “lock and leave” trend prized by active Coloradoans. The HOA will do the landscaping and snow removal, so people are free to come and go and enjoy their free time and the active Skyestone lifestyle. The homes will be built in a quad space that will share a common courtyard. For more information, contact the Skyestone sales office at 303.325.2444.
The active lifestyle
Lifestyle Director Angela Harris plans programs and events for Skyestone’s residents. “I find out what people want to do and help them enjoy their retirement and their lives and get connected with others. Some people work from home, some work part time, and about half are retired. I will say, ‘We’re going to do volunteer work,’ or ‘We’re going to have coffee,’ and people join in. In Broomfield there are recreation centers, the library, nature hiking and biking, with great trails nearby. People develop rapport with their neighbors. There’s a dinner club, dinner parties, singles and couples. We had a block party recently.
“This is an active adult community. People are smart, and they have pride in what they have accomplished in life. Now they’re enjoying a good life in this beautiful place – like the fulfillment of the American dream.”
“It’s a great location, a beautiful setting. You can sit outside at night and look
at the stars.”
INTERVIEW WITH AN ACTIVE HOMEOWNER
“How happy I am to live here,” says Jeanette Hizel, who moved from Arvada into her new home at Skyestone in March. “I looked at other communities: condos, townhomes and single-family homes. I chose Skyestone because I liked the community feeling, the opportunities to make friends, the Taylor Morrison floor plans, the ranches and their layouts.” She likes the lifestyle. “It is an active 55-and-older community, with hiking and biking and exercise, walking paths, activities going on daily – a lively place to live. It is good for the residents. It’s easy to meet new people.” She adds, “The location is so great, and we have beautiful views of the Flatirons.”
