Residents of The Farm – a master planned community in Academy School District 20 – enjoy enchanting views blended into a down-to-earth, quiet lifestyle with unlimited opportunities right outside their front door. Set against the backdrop of stunning Front Range, families are able to get away from every day hustle and bustle, and find time for biking, swimming, and fishing, without ever leaving the community. Homes are priced from the upper $300’s to $1 million plus.
The next phase of Farm Filing Two is now paved and selling, and consists of 43 single-family lots. Builders include Saddletree Homes, Vantage Homes and Goetzmann Custom Homes. “Saddletree Homes is thrilled to break ground in Filing Two of The Farm,” says Blake Barcus of Saddletree Homes. “Being a semi-custom to custom builder we feel we now truly have a product in a master planned community that provides us with the opportunity to get creative and really make dreams come true.” Filing Two is a truly unique area and offers a different product than people have seen thus far in The Farm, with varying levels of topography and phenomenal views provided by these one-of-a-kind lots. These new lots are unique for the north side of Colorado Springs with their varying sizes and broader architectural options. The opportunities are endless with lots ranging from 7,000 to 27,000 square feet, and new elevations ranging from mountain modern to farm house. “Saddletree Homes is excited to get creative and have fun with the new opportunities The Farm provides, and we hope our future home buyers are just as excited,” adds Blake.
Count Fleet Court, an exceptional cul-de-sac offering low maintenance living, also in Filing Two, is currently set to be ready in June and reservations are now open for lots 1-19! This neighborhood will feature single-family homes from Vantage Homes, but will have the added bonus of low-maintenance living – similar to a patio home community. The area features easy living at its finest, with snow removal, lawn care maintenance, trash and recycling, and exterior water for landscaping included in the HOA. Vantage Homes will be offering six ranch plans and three two-story plans for buyers to choose from.
The Farm is also excited to present 16 custom home sites, which will debut this fall 2017. These lots are phenomenal offering impressive Front Range views, large lot size, and natural scrub oak, not to mention beautiful custom homes. With only 16 being offered they are sure to be popular.
The community affords plentiful trails for biking, hiking and strolling, with 12 planned pocket parks along the way. Each park will feature a different amenity – be it a park bench to take in the views or play equipment for the kids. The play equipment will have a unique twist on more common styles typically seen in other areas. For example, the giant double slide is already in, so siblings or parents and kids can go down the slide together. Most recently, a charming swing set modeled to look like a tree swing has been installed.
In addition, the extensive trail system will link to regional trails in the future. “One of the trail segments is in and it runs along the creek and open space area. It will be really neat in the future when the community trails connect to the regional trails as it will provide even more plentiful opportunities for walking and biking,” says Lindsey Nigon, Marketing Director of La Plata Communities.
A surplus of opportunities await at The Gathering Place, which is a beautiful four acres of land right in the heart of the community, reserved for fun and relaxation. Located on “Lake Ann,” The Gathering Place imparts a number of chances to connect with nature, family and friends. From here families can enjoy gently drifting in canoes, a peaceful moment of fishing, campfire pastimes or engaging with the community for events. “We are progressing with plans for the community clubhouse and hope to reveal more details later this year,” says Nigon. “The clubhouse will be situated adjacent to the lake and will boast lovely views of the mountains as well, not to mention numerous amenities and activities.”
Families living at The Farm benefit from the highly regarded Academy District 20 schools; and The Farm has set aside 15 acres at the entrance for an elementary or middle school to be built at District 20’s discretion. Before long, families with school-aged children will enjoy the luxury of having a top notch school within walking distance.
