For homebuyers interested in reducing their “carbon footprint” with green living, Stapleton offers sustainability-minded homes. Stapleton is one of Denver’s hippest neighborhoods that offer new construction housing with energy-efficient features. Made up of nine villages, Stapleton is a best-selling community in the Denver metro area. Conservatory Green is part of the newer sections of the community, featuring energy-efficient paired villas as well as stand alone cottages. For the villas, prices range from about $340,000 for two bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and about 1,500 square feet to about $435,000 for three bedrooms, three and a half baths and about 1,900 square feet. By working with a Denver-area Realtor who has established relationships with new home builders, you can get the best deals currently offered. Builders often change their incentives, but your Realtor can negotiate on your behalf.
- Living in a master-planned community
People used to have to move to Florida to enjoy the benefits of a master-planned community. Stapleton is one of the best-selling master-planned communities in the country. Some of the perks of living there include a dog park, community pool, biking path, playgrounds, recreation center and fitness facilities. Stapleton is a short commute to the Denver International Airport as well as downtown. Developers design some master-planned communities so residents can walk to different shops. For Stapleton residents, it’s an easy walk to get to the Shops at Northfield Stapleton for dining and shopping.
- Choosing floor plans and amenities
Whether you buy an inventory home or make some of your own custom design decisions, you will save money with lower utility bills by choosing energy-efficient appliances. Many of the new homes in Stapleton have upgraded wood flooring and modern porcelain tiles, high-end cabinets and granite. The elevation plans of many homes include brick façade and siding. Some plans resemble Frank Lloyd Wright’s style, while others are traditional. Most homes come with the traditional front porches. Depending on your needs, you can choose a one-story one single story home with basement. While patio homes are not for everyone, they work well for retirees who don’t want to maintain a yard. Many residents like walking to schools and restaurants in the area. At Peter Hauben Real Estate, we show our clients a variety of older, vintage homes as well as contemporary new homes in the Denver’s hippest neighborhoods. We can help you find a home that fits your budget and exceeds your wildest expectations in terms of lifestyle and amenities.
