Copperleaf Homes Open Model in Denver’s University Hills Neighborhood

I’m excited to announce that Copperleaf Homes’ model home in Denver is now open for business!  For those of you that aren’t familiar with Copperleaf Homes, they’re an experienced custom home builder that started building in the Colorado Springs market about 12 years ago. This award-winning builder has received honors as the Home of the Year at countless Parade of Homes competitions in El Paso and Douglas County.  Take a look at this virtual tour of their 2013 parade home that won the designation of Best Floor Plan, Best Interior Design, and Best Architectural Exterior by judges of the Home Builders Association.

The Denver model home is centrally located in the University Hill neighborhood at 3401 S. Clermont St. and has been designed to fit the needs of today’s buyers that are looking for a new home without having to settle on location.  The model is situated on a standard 6,250 (50’ x 125’) Denver lot which gives us the ability to duplicate this home in just about any Denver neighborhood without having to expend time or money on designing new architectural or construction documents.  The actual home features almost 2,800 square feet of living space above ground and a full basement that totals over 1,100 square feet.

The main floor consists of an explosion of space at the entry with its two-story, volume ceiling.  The rest of the main floor boasts a huge great room encompassing the kitchen, family room and dining space.  Between the kitchen and the attached two car garage you’ll find an awesome mudroom and from the dining room you have access to a large covered patio and access to a nicely sized back yard.

The upper floor includes 4 bedrooms (none of which share a wall with another bedroom), a spacious loft, and three full baths.  The master bedroom is spacious and the bathroom feels like a spa with its spacious shower and free standing bathtub.

The Copperleaf model home also features a finished basement with a wet bar that many hole-in-the-wall establishments would be envious of.  Beyond the wet bar you’ll find a recreation room (think ping-pong table, billiards or wrestling pit), family room, bedroom, bathroom and storage room.  Click here for a tour of the model which happens to be the most awesome virtual tour you’ve ever seen.  Additionally, you’ll find more pictures below.

Copperleaf Homes has perfected the custom homebuilding / home buying process to the point where it feels truly seamless.  If you’re a new home snob (much like me) but aren’t willing to relocate to the suburbs (again, like me), Copperleaf gives you control of where your new home will be built, what it will look like and how it will live… all at an amazingly affordable price.

Copperleaf Homes – New Custom Home Builder in the Denver Luxury Market

Many of my friends, clients and acquaintances have heard me boast about Copperleaf Homes, the custom homebuilder I’m representing here in the Denver metro area.   Today I took a second to tour the model home Copperleaf Homes is in the process of building at 3401 S. Clermont St. in the southeast Denver neighborhood of University Hills… and folks, it is a sight for sore eyes!  That’s right, a custom homebuilder that has taken the time and energy to build a model home dedicated to providing you a sneak-peek at the design and quality they’re capable of building.

The second you pull up to the model you notice something different. Sure, the home’s architecture leans contemporary but it feels so much more put together than many of the modern and contemporary boxy homes we’re seeing in Denver’s urban neighborhoods.  The model’s architecture feels rich, stately, well thought out.

As you approach the home you notice the beautiful stacked stone and blocked limestone detail on the front façade.

As you enter the home you’re welcomed by an explosion of space with two-story volume ceilings.  Next to the foyer you’ll find a spacious study and full bathroom, which can double as a spare bedroom.   Continuing on the main-floor, you’ll find a spacious family room, dining room and kitchen set up as a one big space, a mudroom that leads you to the attached garage and a covered patio leading to the back yard.

Upstairs you’ll find a junior suite with it’s own full bathroom towards the front of the home. Two spacious secondary bedrooms bookend a Jack-and-Jill bath, a spacious loft, full laundry room with a laundry sink and the master suite complete with a 5-piece master bathroom and walk-in closet anchors the back of the home.

The fully finished basement features a fair amount of storage, an ample bedroom, full bathroom and a remarkable wet bar that includes a wine fridge and dishwasher.

This model home truly encompasses all the attributes that today’s buyer is looking for without having to settle on location.  Since Copperleaf Homes is a custom builder, they can build this or any home just about anywhere in the Denver-metro area.  Copperleaf can build on your lot or I can help you find a lot in whichever neighborhood suits your needs and we can build whatever you’d like.

If time is of the essence, worry not as Copperleaf already has a few homes under construction that one could move into as soon this spring.  We have a duplex under construction in Berkeley just steps from the Tennyson St. strip and we’ll have three large single family homes in the planning process which will be built right in the Potter Highlands historic district in LoHi.

If you’re like me and not willing to give up your favorite neighborhood but can appreciate a newly built home then Copperleaf Homes is the way to have your cake and eat it too.  For more information on building a new, affordable custom home anywhere in the Denver metro area, call or text me at 303.570.8561 or email me at
