April 24, 2014
– Leading Western homebuilder Village Homes has acquired 201 lots in Arvada's popular Candelas community development, with plans this fall to open models showcasing its diverse selection of low-maintenance homes specifically designed to appeal to families, pre-retirees and retired buyers.
Thanks in large part to its stunning 360-degree views of downtown Denver and the Front Range, Candelas is quickly running out of lots for homebuilders to purchase as hundreds of families decide to make their new home in Arvada's environmentally-friendly and western-most new community. The new Village Homes offerings will make up the bulk of Candelas' ValleyView Village neighborhood situated in the center of the 1,400-acre community.
Developed by Arvada Residential Partners, LLC, Candelas lays just to the south of Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge, a sprawling 6,240-acre protected expanse that includes rare tall grass prairie and a wide variety of animal species. Open space, lakes, parks and greenbelt areas are numerous throughout the area. In addition, as the Denver Post reported recently, the area's recreational amenities will significantly increase as plans go forward to complete new bike trails inside the wildlife refuge that connect all the way from Denver to Rocky Mountain National Park.
With models scheduled to open to the public in fall 2014, ValleyView will offer low-maintenance homes with a wide variety of floor plans designed to meet the demands of both older buyers as well as active-lifestyle families and singles of all ages. The uniquely-styled homes were designed by nationally renowned architectural firms BSB Design and Godden Sudik. Additional amenities will include front yard landscape maintenance and snow removal. Home prices will start in the low $400,000's.
"Village Homes has enjoyed unprecedented success since entering Candelas with our unique lower-maintenance Sundance product" said Janet Mitchell, Vice President of Marketing for Village Homes. "We have achieved a record sales pace within the community and have responded to the needs and desires of future Candelas residents with new product development based on feedback from thousands of visitors to our Sundance site."
Candelas has a state of the art LEED-certified swim and fitness club already open for residents, with more centers and parks planned as the community expands to become a series of attractive, comfortable villages nestled among the area's quietly beautiful rolling foothills.
"We had numerous builders looking to take this product segment at Candelas, however, we are excited to have selected Village Homes for ValleyView," said Brian Daly, Principal at Terra Causa Capital, LLC, the developer of Candelas. "Village Homes has developed a stellar reputation in Arvada over the years by focusing on the home buyers' needs and we know their presence at Candelas will give great value to our prospective buyers."
Candelas is located in northwest Arvada, Colorado between Indiana Street and Highway 93 and just north of state highway 72. Visit www.candelaslife.com to learn more about the community and homeowner amenities.
