This home was completed by Meritage in 2012, so its like new without the wait! Everything about this home is ready for the new homeowners to move in and start enjoying life. The home was built with energy efficiency in mind. The floorplan is gracious in size and design, including a finished basement! Location for this home cannot be beat within walking distance to restaurants, the grocery store, rec center and Lafayette library.
When Meritage constructed this home they had a goal of creating an energy efficient home. Through construction they had a third party measure the efficiency of the construction using a HERS rating. This is a system for scoring the Residential Energy Services Network (RESNET) to measure a home’s energy efficiency in relation to the HERS Reference Home, which is represented by a score of 100 on the HERS Index. This home received a 61. Considering that the lower the number the better the score, this is a great rating! For example, the typical home scores 100 so this home is more efficient than approximately 40% of the homes available on the market.
In addition to being a very energy efficient home, it is also gracious in its size, layout and finishes. For starters the home has almost 3,300 sq ft of finished living space! Yes, indeed that does mean that the home has a finished basement! That is an expensive project that the new homeowner has completed for them. This space includes and extra bedroom and bathroom.
Upstairs there is a landing area or a loft, plus three additional bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom has a 5 piece bathroom and includes a private sitting area, which is being used by the current homeowners as an office. This office has mountain views!
On the main floor you are greeted by wide plank walnut floors that are stained a warm, rich brown (not blonde!). The living room is open to the dining room and kitchen offering a great space for entertaining. The kitchen has gorgeous espresso colored cabinets with granite countertops. All the appliances are stainless steel. So as you can imagine this is an elegant space to cook and prepare meals. Out the back door there is a poured concrete patio which extends the entertaining space and includes mountain views!
Not only is this home gracious inside, but the new homeowners will find the location to be very walkable with great amenities all around! For starters, the Rothman Open Space Trail surrounding this community that will take the new homeowners on long hikes and bike rides through the countryside. These trails even connect to the Bob Burger Rec Center, and the Great Bark Dog Park. Within walking distance of the home are many restaurants and even a grocery store for the convenience of the new homeowners. In this same area the Lafayette Library can be found which is also easily accessible without a car.
This home has so many amenities that we don’t expect it to last on the market for long! Please give Leanne a call at 720-465-7005 for more information or to schedule a showing.
