It’s been 17 years since then-governor Roy Romer gave Prospect Newtown the Smart Growth award. Six years later Dwell magazine called the quirky enclave America’s coolest neighborhood, and put the accolade on their April 2002 cover. Today, the colorful and inviting new urbanist community—founded on a former tree farm—is more loved than ever.
A good match
Given our passion for design and architectural excellence, we’re thrilled to be joining a streetscape rich with color and variety. Prospect is home to the traditional two-story with a wrap-around porch as well as some of the most contemporary homes in Boulder County. Prices are all over the map, creating a community filled with people of varying interests and ages. We’re bringing our respect for great design to a community that embraces it. The move strikes us as the perfect fit.
We’re building contemporary and traditional Craftsman styles, two-stories and ranches with main-floor master suites, single-family homes and town homes. Many Prospect lots are permitted for carriage houses. Several of our alley-loaded plans will include a detached garage with rough-in plumbing and a finish option as studio space, rental property, guesthouse or home office. In keeping with our commitment to sustainability and energy savings, every Markel home will be built green and Energy Star® certified.
We’re starting with 18 single-family homes and town homes, scattered among existing houses. More will follow. Watch for start dates and timelines. Email Asa Welch with questions. Markel Homes is poised to make a significant contribution to this walkable, architecturally diverse, well-planned 80-acre gem in south Longmont, coming soon.
