Despite the extreme scarcity of good custom home building sites in Boulder County, some of the most beautiful custom homes and building sites are available in southwest Longmont only minutes to Boulder, open space, trails, shopping, restaurants and more.

Masterwork Home Company and Bosch Real Estate Group are presenting two custom homes that are under construction in their newest high-end custom home community, The Conservatory at Somerset Meadows.

If one prefers to select a lot and start a design from scratch, a client may choose from four available building sites in the same community and Masterwork Home Company can design and create a home to your exact design tastes. The homes in Somerset Meadows are typically between $1.5 and $1.8 million, including the land and luxury finishes throughout the home.

The two homes under construction and available for sale are:

• 4783 Summerlin Place,  $1,835,000, Five bedroom plus study, 5,070 finished sq. ft., 5,670 total sq. ft., oversized five-car garage, sculptural contemporary architecture, views of the Flatirons from the second-floor rear deck and Long’s Peak views from the front deck, dramatic bridge with panoramic mountain views, custom cabinets, exquisite luxury finishes throughout this one-of-kind custom home, very private setting, Wolf appliances and more.

• 4759 Summerlin Place, $1,795,000, Four bedroom plus study, 5,233 finished sq. ft., 6,000 total sq. ft., main floor owners’ suite, inspired contemporary farm house architecture, lot backs to a conservation easement for great views and privacy, inspired interior design with a mix of rustic and contemporary design, Thermador appliances, custom cabinets and more. Every detail is thoughtful and elegant.

According to Brian Terry, Bosch Real Estate Group marketing director, “Each home is still at the stage where you can create your own interior designs. Selections of finish materials and colors can be tailored to the buyers’ exact tastes. Buying a home under construction is perfect for a client that wants to move in soon, but still wants the home to reflect all of their tastes.”

Custom luxury homes backing to open space
The four available building sites at the Conservatory at Somerset Meadows feature cul-de-sac coziness and expansive lots backing up to community open space and a conservation easement, ensuring privacy and incredible views of the Rocky Mountains.

Lots range from a quarter acre to one-third acre. A contemporary custom home from Masterwork Home Company is elegant but not fussy and always luxuriously welcoming. “We are one of the few companies around that builds a custom home exactly as you want it,” said Terry. “The homes offered in Somerset Meadows advance the lavish comfort, artistic customizations and high performance that define all of the true custom homes created by Masterwork Home Company – an acclaimed Boulder County builder for more than 20 years, with a long-standing reputation for excellence.”

Masterwork Home Company builds the home you imagined
“If you can imagine it, Masterwork Home Company can create it,” said David Boschert, Masterwork Home Company founder. Masterwork Homes are known for their extensive, creative use of natural light with clerestory and large asymmetrical windows. The open floor plans embrace outdoor space and incorporate strong geometric shapes and fresh lines punctuated by bold natural elements. Moveable indoor-outdoor glass walls are a favorite with clients.

“Many customers are asking for a fresh take on traditional home styles,” Boschert said. “They are looking for simpler design, cleaner lines and home automation. We are on the cutting edge of this contemporary look. Because we create the home to your exact specifications, you are involved in the whole selection process, from floor plan to finishes to external surfaces. We think creating a true custom home is fun.”

As a full-service custom homebuilder, Masterwork collaborates one-on-one with homebuyers from the initial concept through fixtures and finishes to the final delivery of the home.

Masterwork Home Company partners with a team of local architects who are renowned for transforming dreams into reality.

Masterwork custom homes are meticulously designed via an ultramodern three-dimensional design system, thereby enabling clients to virtually inhabit their new home before construction even begins. This eliminates needless worry and guesswork from the design process and helps clients better envision the customizations they desire.

Boschert noted that many Masterwork Home clients are opting to design homes with a strong focus on high-quality finishes, instead of mere square footage. “Exterior design elements feature strong materials such as stone, stucco, natural wood or even contemporary steel siding,” he said. “The result is something with great appeal to the eye but low maintenance. It’s the intersection where luxury meets convenience.”

Terry added, “These homes are a work of art. The quality of architectural design combined with a true custom home experience is a rarity in today’s market.” Indeed, Masterwork clients are given “100 percent flexibility,” Boschert said, from start to finish of the design process to fashion a home that fits their sense of style, taste and budget.

“Our clients are very savvy,” Terry said. “They appreciate great architecture and design in their home. They have a vision for how a home should feel and live, and Masterwork and our architects make that vision come to life.”

Bold looks, and strength, inside and out
The finest custom homes must do more than look great. Masterwork homes are crafted to deliver a lifetime of performance and energy efficiency. State-of-the-art construction methods and renewable energy systems wisely utilize resources and save on energy bills.
