Last chances at lower-maintenance, main-floor living in Superior.
Lifestyle builder Boulder Creek Neighborhoods has announced just a few quick move-in homes available in Lanterns at Rock Creek. This offering is a limited opportunity in Superior – one of the most desirable locations in Boulder County. A jewel of the Rock Creek master-planned community, Lanterns epitomizes all the best things about a Boulder Creek home: lower-maintenance conveniences, main-floor designs, sustainable craftsmanship backed by a new home warranty package, and a dynamic, welcoming community of homeowners.
New quick move-in homes are available now
“As the community approaches sell-out, we are excited to offer quick move-in homes that are professionally designed, beautifully brand new, and available now,” said Jessica Champlin, Boulder Creek Neighborhood’s chief revenue officer. She noted, “Timing is everything with these homes. Not everyone has the luxury of waiting six months to a year for a new home. People get married, divorced, relocate for work or to be near grandchildren – and for these folks, it’s the best of both worlds to move now but also move into a new home with all the warranties and reassurances that new construction provides.” Quick move-in homes can often close in as quick as 30 days, which also means potential homeowner “can be knowledgeable and confident about where the market is right now, instead of wondering what will be happening several months from now when the home is complete,” Champlin said. “It’s easier to plan in every way.”
Plus, because the finishes, flooring and fixtures of each quick move-in home are hand-selected by Boulder Creek’s professional designers, “the guesswork is taken out of the design process,” Champlin said. “You don’t have to wonder if that tile goes with this carpet. The only thing you need to do is move-in and enjoy.”
Two popular floor plans at Lanterns at Rock Creek are currently available as quick move-ins, the Zenith and the Triumph. Coming in under $700,000, an unparalleled price point for a new home in Boulder County, the Zenith is ideally sized for couples ready to escape the dated six-bedroom family home with a sprawling yard or singles and young professionals seeking an efficient, intuitive home. The Zenith, at 2,128 square feet, features two bedrooms on the main floor, just steps from the laundry, and as with all remaining homes at Lanterns at Rock Creek, a finished lower level. “The lower level is a great space for an exercise zone, hobby or crafting studio, and a place to hang out with friends and family,” Champlin said. Outdoors, a front courtyard sitting area is a lovely spot for morning coffee or cocktails with neighbors, and the Colorado-style rear patio offers plenty of room for outdoor dining, a potted garden and a grill or cushioned rocking chairs.
The Triumph is a main-floor living design that’s a bit bigger at 2,626 square feet and is a top choice for those eager to entertain. Also with a lower level finished to include a rec room, a bedroom, and an additional bathroom, a Triumph offered at just under $800,000 is an exceptional value. “Homeowners love the Triumph for its oversized, angled island for hosting and entertaining, as well as the two suites on the main floor, which is very popular for guests, and also with buyers who may be sisters or possibly multi-generational families,” Champlin said. The second main floor suite may double as an office, “making this a functional and flexible floor plan for however you want to live,” she explained.
Energy-efficient, lower-maintenance conveniences
Creating a floor plan for “however you want to live” is, in fact, the mission of Boulder Creek Neighborhoods. The builder’s term for it – “lifefullness®” – is defined lower maintenance conveniences that give homeowners the freedom and time to pursue their passions on their own terms. The Lanterns at Rock Creek lifestyle association oversees maintenance tasks such as snow shoveling and front yard landscaping and maintenance. “For your family, ‘lifefullness’ might look like weekends skiing or hiking, or maybe it’s more time with a book or with the grandkids, instead of yard work,” Champlin said. “Our homes are designed to give you the life you always wanted.”
Homes at Lanterns at Rock Creek, furthermore, offer energy-conserving features like the Tesla solar panels atop each home, advanced insulation packages, Low-E windows and a charging dock in the two-car garage. “Not only is this good for the environment,” Champlin said, “but these homes, by offering the latest in construction and technological efficiency, are built to last. These are designed to help lower monthly energy bills and reduce the likelihood of costly maintenance and upkeep.”
Similarly, to ensure a good fit with homeowners for years to come, homes at Lanterns at Rock Creek include raised electrical outlets to reduce bending, minimum-step thresholds, wide doorways and spacious bathrooms. “Our homeowners know efficient main-floor living saves time and energy,” Champlin said.
Boulder Creek Neighborhoods, based in Louisville, purposefully connects its neighborhoods with the local charm of the larger community. Lanterns at Rock Creek will include 62 homes on a cul-de-sac at build-out and, especially as construction winds down, is a quiet, tranquil community. Rock Creek is adjacent to miles of walking and cycling paths, parks and playgrounds galore, open space with abundant wildlife and award-winning golf courses. The town of Superior itself offers an unrivaled location on the Front Range, blending a small-town feel with the amenities of Boulder and Denver. Nearby are two community pools, Flat Irons Crossing shopping mall, art galleries, museums, restaurants and breweries. Superior’s revitalized downtown is delightfully walkable and features cozy boutiques, a variety of medical facilities and retail shops, and for jet setters, is a short drive to the Denver International Airport.
