Three lots now available to ‘live where you play’
Brookfield Residential is transforming today’s market with affordable, efficient, well-crafted homes at Barefoot Lakes, one of the most beautiful corners of northern Colorado. Brookfield Residential’s Mosaic Portfolio features intuitive floor plans with three-car garages, optional basements with garden walkouts and seamless indoor-outdoor living – a must for the adventurous, nature-loving homeowner at Barefoot Lakes.
A master-planned community 15 minutes east of Longmont, Barefoot Lakes by Brookfield Residential celebrates convenient access to Denver, Boulder, Loveland and the Denver International Airport and boasts two expansive lakes, miles of trails, a huge regional park and a community center with a fitness center and two pools. Not to mention pickleball court, basketball court and outdoor fire pits.
“This is a peaceful community people don’t want to leave, a place to live where you play,” noted Brookfield Residential community sales manager Ann McConnell. “The Mosaic portfolio includes two ranch homes and four two-story homes and caters to all ages and stages.” Brookfield Residential offers three exterior options (farmhouse, craftsman and cottage styles) per floor plan, and since homes are built to harness the contours of the land, each home feels unique yet reflects the relaxed community vibe.
“Usually you need to do deep diving to find homes like these,” McConnell said. “Mosaic sites are off I-25 and nestled into the St. Vrain Valley right next to the St. Vrain River, and of course, you have the lakes. You can’t help but take a second look.” Cottonwoods line the river adjacent to the lakes, and homeowners enjoy non-motorized boats, paddleboarding, fishing and birding throughout the year. “There is abundant wildlife,” McConnell said. “Eagles, hawks and deer in the valley.”
Natural beauty indoors and out
The Mosaic portfolio by Brookfield Residential is designed to capture the wonder of the inspirational setting. “Our homes feature walls of windows and are bathed in natural light,” said Marni Shwartz, marketing manager at Brookfield Residential. Front and back porches or patios, depending on the lot, invite afternoons in lounge chairs, container gardening and outdoor dining. Front lawns are fully landscaped, and many yards back to green space or include deep lots “so you’re not on top of each other,” McConnell said. Stunning views of the Front Range surround Barefoot Lakes, and Mosaic homes easily connect to the comprehensive trail and park system.
The Mosaic portfolio’s six floor plans, in addition to exterior selections, are thoughtfully tailored to meet homeowner needs “with artfully assembled details,” Shwartz said. McConnell explained, “Home buyers love our options, such as the loft option, giving them a little more spaciousness and opening up views, as well as the option to include a main floor bedroom with a full bath.” Plus, she said, “We offer the latest trends for finishes and fixtures and have ten different design packages, introductory to upgrades.” Floor plans extend from the Mosaic 1 ranch at 1,415 square feet to the two-story Mosaic 6 at 2,143 square feet.
Mosaic homes are efficient from the cubbies and benches at the garage entry to the generous closet space. “We have first-time buyers, buyers looking to step up and others looking to downsize,” McConnell said. “A huge draw for all is the three-car garage, rare for this price point and with room for a minimum of two cars and storage for skis and for the lakes, kayaks and paddleboards.” After all, said Shwartz, “Mosaic homes provide that just-right mix for wherever you are in life.”
The conveniences continue to the kitchen, where quartz countertops and a walk-in pantry are included in every plan. Gas cooking is available with direct venting, and the space comfortably opens to a dining area, great room and a covered back porch or patio – ideal for hosting friends and family. Homebuyers can opt for 42-inch cabinetry with crown molding and “dimensional, gorgeous backsplashes,” McConnell said. In the four- or five-piece primary baths, a tub may be tucked into by the shower, another favorite with buyers.
Brookfield Residentials’ commitment to efficiency keeps the builder attentive to homeowner trends. “In these times of flex space and working from home,” Shwartz said, “Brookfield Residential is excited to offer our myHub flex space on a few Mosaic plans.” The myHub provides a work-from-home extension or multipurpose study. “The myHub is a flex space that caters to your brand of work from home – work, watercolors or whatever the kids are up to,” she added.
Finally, to promote efficiency and sustainability, tankless water heaters are the norm, and the “just-right” home size keeps heating and cooling costs under control.
‘Live where you play’
No matter the season, Barefoot Lakes is about appreciating nature and chasing adventure. The 12-acre regional Peninsula Park anchors a fitness island with outdoor exercise equipment, boat dock and an amphitheater for community events. At The Cove, residents work out in the fitness center, gather at the coffee bar and around the fire pits or swim in the six-lane lap pool; kids flock to the beach-entry splash pool, pickleball and basketball court.
Three-mile trails encircle the two lakes, and native grasses and flowers are maintained for a long growing season – brilliant wildflowers in the spring, native and naturalized grasses in summer and cold-friendly flowers in autumn. “There’s a reason we like to say that Barefoot Lakes really is the haven that nature calls home,” Shwartz said.
Dining, shopping and medical facilities are within minutes, and the nearby St. Vrain Valley schools are top-rated. “People feel connected here, and the area continues to grow and thrive,” McConnell said.
