We have several single-family homes under construction in the Prospect New Town community in south Longmont, conveniently located off Hwy 287. These homes are all situated on a large rectangular park. They’re the last homes to be built in Prospect, established more than 20 years ago as Colorado’s first New Urbanist community.
North End in Louisville. Buyers can choose from semi-custom ranch-style and two-story single-family homes, in contemporary and newwest styling, as well as easy living duplexes, town homes and condo lofts. The range of home types at North End attracts buyers at various ages and stages in life, from 20-somethings to retirees, giving the community a great mix of singles, families and empty nesters.
We’re on track for West Grange infrastructure to be completed in late 2017, with home construction starting in early 2018. Our best estimation for home completion is summer 2018. West Grange is an exciting lifestyle opportunity for home buyers; we’re eager to be under way.
We’re fans of open, fluid floor plans and plentiful outdoor living areas. We treat windows as an element of design, featuring large glass in attractive and sometimes unusual configurations. We like inviting the natural world into our living spaces. People feel better in a lighter, sun-filled environment. Natural light has a softening, calming effect and adds an aesthetic quality to the home’s interior.
Travels, magazines, and yes, the Internet. We’re design junkies, always on the lookout for something new, something innovative and fresh. Our love of design fuels our work. It also keeps us on our toes. We’re committed to the health and vitality of our brand; quality design is a big part of what Markel Homes represents to home buyers and realtors in Colorado.
Easy living is our brand of low-maintenance condo lofts, town homes and duplexes. Lawn care and snow removal services are provided by the community HOA. You enjoy come-and-go convenience without worrying about an empty home or untended property, even when you’re traveling for weeks or months at a time. The other piece of “low maintenance” are the durable, sustainable building materials that we use in all of our construction. An easy living residence is a well-built, quality home that requires very little maintenance, now and for years to come.
We’ve been building green since before green-building was a thing. We made energy efficiency and Energy Star® certification a priority years ago. The building materials we use are friendly to the environment; some are artificially made and replace natural materials to conserve resources. We wrap our homes in a water-resistant sheath and install high-efficiency furnaces and innovative, energy-saving Nest® thermostats. We encourage wise water use with automatic drip irrigation systems and low-water plants. Go here for more details.
Yes! We’re in the planning stages for a community we’re calling Blue Sage, located directly east of North End. Our architectural team is experimenting with duplex, triplex and single-family home designs. We’re also designing products for Silver Creek, a Lafayette community east of Hwy 287. Get on our list to receive periodic updates.
We start with a meeting to discuss your ideas, tastes, preferences and budget. We also talk about the lots available in the Markel community you want to live in. Our team takes your input and designs a custom home within your budget that reflects your taste in architecture and interior design and layout. We provide architectural drawings and estimated costs, with no obligation or fee on your part. To move forward, the drawings are tweaked to your satisfaction, a contract is signed and the work begins. Go here for more details.
