At a moment when lots of buyers are looking to re-size into lower-maintenance ranches, Toll Brothers customers at age-55-plus Inspiration off E-470 at Gartrell say they want more than that.
“These are people who tell us they really do want an age-55-plus community, where they can meet people who’ve shared the same experiences,” says Toll Brothers’ Leanne McGuire.
Along with Tanya Miller and Rhanee Schmaltz, she’ll show you some ranches ready for move-in, just in time to join in the holiday parties at Inspiration’s scenic Hilltop Club this season.
You can get an idea of what life in Inspiration really feels like by talking to real residents Saturday morning, Nov. 16, at a neighborhood Meet-and-Greet in their Hilltop Club, with coffee and bagels.
Right now, competition for homes at Inspiration is pushed along by a wave of people from out of state, who either have kids and grandkids here or are attracted to Colorado’s outdoor lifestyle, says McGuire.
I met a tennis-playing couple with a place in Arizona that they plan to hold o nto but with grandkids in Denver. “Fantastic,” he said, commenting on the perceived size and value of the models you’ll tour Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 16-17..
Along with that wide range of ranch model homes, you’ll see a few that are ready to go, including a Durango Classic design — two bedrooms plus a study, three baths, over 2,300 square feet of finished space, plus a walk-out lower level and covered deck backing to open space, and a FOUR-car garage.
“Lots of space for a workshop or for toys,” says McGuire.” It’s priced at $734,995.
Meanwhile, you could be moved in for Thanksgiving here from as low as $475,000, for a Logan Country Manor ranch, 1,601 square feet in a two-bedroom/two-bath plan, with a two-car garage.
If you have more time before needing to move, you can see remaining sites from Toll Brothers’ newest release, including situations that offer walk-out basement potential and/or backing to open space.
While visiting the Hilltop Club with its pool and scenic indoor-outdoor event venues, you’ll hear about two dozen clubs that residents have set up in four years since Inspiration was launched — including a tennis club; dinner-for-eight group; hiking, skiing and walking groups; lots of card clubs; a golfing club; and a group for wine aficionados.
You’ll be surprised by the reasonable association prices, particularly if you’re comparing to golf course areas where HOA dues have become very expensive.
And the commute from here into the south I-25 corridor and DTC is very quick via E-470 — around 15 minutes.
From I-25, take E-470 east past Parker Road to Gartrell, then head south a mile to Inspiration Lane.
