To make the most of “the important things,” from family and friends to time outdoors, Barefoot Lakes prioritizes recreational and nature-based amenities.

Model home now open.

With the grand opening of their newest model home this week, Brookfield Residential is ushering in a new way of “living where you play,” to Barefoot Lakes. Brookfield Residential’s latest portfolio, the Mosaic Portfolio, intertwines Barefoot Lakes’ celebration of nature with affordability and efficiency in six open-concept, floor plans.

A master-planned community 15 minutes east of Longmont, Barefoot Lakes offers convenient access to Denver, Boulder, Firestone, Loveland and the Denver International Airport.  Homeowners enjoy miles of trails, two expansive lakes, a 12-acre regional park and The Cove community center with an outdoor pool, splash pool, fitness center and coffee bar.

“This is a very up-and-coming community,” said Brookfield Residential community sales manager Ann McConnell. “There’s room to grow, and Brookfield Residential focused a lot of attention to the parks, playgrounds and open spaces.”

“Barefoot Lakes is located near I-25 and nestled next to the St. Vrain River. You can’t help but take a second look.” Cottonwoods line the river adjacent to the lakes, where homeowners may enjoy non-motorized boats, paddleboarding, fishing and birding.

“There is abundant wildlife,” McConnell said. “Eagles, hawks and deer in the valley.”

The fine art of just right – thoughtfully assembled details

The Mosaic Portfolio by Brookfield Residential is designed to capture the wonder and beauty of Barefoot Lakes. “Our homes feature walls of windows and seamless indoor-outdoor living,” said Marni Shwartz, marketing manager at Brookfield Residential. Broad front porches and optional back patios and decks offer plenty of space for lounge chairs, container gardening or outdoor dining. Many homes back to green space or feature deep lots “so you’re not on top of each other,” McConnell said. Stunning views of the Front Range surround Barefoot Lakes, and Mosaic Portfolio homes easily connect to the comprehensive trail and park system.

Inside, “these plans are thoughtfully crafted for buyers looking for current designs with smart use of space,” McConnell said. Intentionally efficient down to the smallest details, from appliances to the flow of the floor plan, Mosaic homes optimize storage and flex space to meet homeowner needs. Two ranch floor plans and four two-story Mosaic plans are available, and total bedrooms range from two to five.

Presenting clean lines and open-concept floor plans suffused with natural light, “these homes are for any stage of life, from growing families looking for more space to those looking to downsize,” McConnell said. “They are an affordable choice to today’s market for our multigenerational buyers.” Homes start in the mid $400s. With the two ranch-style Mosaic home plans, with the laundry room just steps from the primary suite or the two-story plans with four bedrooms an optional study and the myHub flex space there’s a home type for every stage of life.

Unique for this price point, a three-car garage is standard across the Mosaic portfolio, and the “myHub” flex space provides a work-from-home extension or multipurpose study. Plus, each Mosaic floor plan includes a large kitchen and pantry. “We offer the latest trends for finishes and fixtures and have ten different packages, introductory to upgrades,” McConnell said. Quartz countertops are included even in the introductory package, as is the generously sized island.

Affordable homes in the haven that nature calls home

To make the most of “the important things,” from family and friends to time outdoors, Barefoot Lakes prioritizes recreational and nature-based amenities. The 12-acre regional park, Peninsula Park, includes a fitness island with outdoor exercise equipment and an amphitheater for community events and concerts. Playgrounds foster un-programmed play, with rock scrambles, natural materials, sport fields and meadows. 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 love the beach-entry pool and splash zone. Pickleball and basketball courts round out the fitness center.

Brookfield Residential’s careful integration of flora and fauna take the stage on the trails and around the lakes. Native plants enhances the environment for wildlife, and water-wise grasses and flowers are meticulously 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.

Home buyers can visit the Mosaic model home now at Barefoot Lakes and experience the beauty and wonder of an efficient, affordable home in a breathtaking corner of Colorado. Mosaic homes start in the mid-$400s.
