Invalesco recently had the opportunity to tour a custom designed, paired home by Adamo Homes. Greg Schwartz, an Adamo Homes Business Development Specialist, led us through this tour.  Adamo is proud to be " America’s First Small Batch Builder", building in smaller quantities which allows them to provide a higher quality product with a higher level of customer interaction.  The Adamo team spends time getting to know their customers personally and aims to meet their lifestyle and design needs when building their homes. Adamo strives for quality over quantity, carefully handpicking their homesite locations and taking time to perfect the desired home for each customer.



                  

FIrst stop on our tour was 5170 Le Duc Drive.  This perfectly positioned paired home sits on a private lake in the gated community of Castle Pines Village. This beautiful deisgned custom 2-story home features 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a 2-car attached garage with 3,833 finished sq. ft. When you first walk into 5170 Le DucDrive,  you are greated by the beautiful, up-close view of the lake which gleams from the great room window.   While enjoying the lake view, you can snuggle up to the stone surround gas fireplace, enjoy the natural light shining throughout the home and appreciate all the finishing touches selected just for this home.  This thoughfully designed home features an open floor plan with main level living, engineered hardwoods floors in the kitchen and great room and 4 bedrooms.

The master bedroom contains vibrant natural light, a striking, large 5-piece master bathroom, large walk in closet and easy access to the laundry room.  Then head upstairs to your 2 bedrooms for guest or family, an extra sitting area for an office or playroom, and another full bath. The basement is unfinished which allows you to decide how you want to use the space. The basement has pre-plumbing done for a bathroom.
   When you are not resting in one of the 4 bedroom, enjoy cooking in your open kitchen featuring, a large beautiful Carrera Quartz island with custom maple cabinets, soft close drawers and Bosch appliances. 

Along with your beautiful new home, enjoy the amble amenities in the covenant controlled gated community at The Village at Castle Pines.  Spend your summer days at The Canyon Club swimming pool, BBQ'ing on the Viking steel gas grills, playing sand volleyball, challening someone to a tennis match on one of the 5 championship tennis courts or gather a group of neighbors to play a friendly game of soccer on the multi-use field.  If The Canyon Club isn't appealing, go to The Summit Club located on the north side featuring another swimming pool with interactive water features, a pavilion and a multipurpose playing field.  In the colder months,  you can enjoy the heated outdoor lap pool, outdoor spa, both located at the Village Lake Fitness Center.  Here you can also exercise,  take a class in the yoga studio and/or train in the TRX training room. .

Geos Neighborhood by Cornerstone Homes

By Angie Sudberry - November 19, 2018

Our team at Invalesco Real Estate was delighted to tour the Geos neighborhood, Colorado’s first geosolar development, built by Cornerstone Homes.  The neighborhood harnesses geo-thermal energy paired with both passive and active solar strategies and cutting-edge green building technologies to achieve net-zero energy consumption. Casey Van Iten, project manager, led us in the tour and provided us with a wealth of information on the innovative building process.  This unique community will include community gardens, parks, corner stores, & shared facilities.
 
An incredible amount of energy savings can be achieved by using passive strategies. The strategies implemented in the Geos neighborhood include achieving extreme air tightness (0.6 ACH50), being intentional with the staggered placement of the homes and the placement of windows and opening to maximize solar energy when and where it is needed. Cornerstone took into account all of the seasons of Colorado’s climate.  However, it is evident they weren’t just technical and thought of the beauty of the homes too… the homes have breathtaking mountain views! These passive strategies make the home extremely comfortable with steady temperatures throughout. The homes are so well insulated and air-tight that their heating and cooling demands are only 20% of a comparably sized traditional home.
 

 
For the active solar energy component, the homes feature solar panels on all their roofs. This is a greatly cost effective way of contributing towards achieving their net-zero energy goal. 

We saw examples of green building everywhere throughout the homes, from paints with no VOC to triple-paned windows. It was very inspiring that Cornerstone Homes really looks to build with quality and efficiency and isn’t only looking at their bottom line. Casey explained that because the homes are so air tight, it is important to only use materials in the home that are of high quality and will keep the air inside as pure as possible… well, that would make any homeowner breathe a little easier! (pardon the pun).  Additionally, all of the homes have Energy Recovery Ventilators that are constantly bringing in fresh air from the outside but precondition the air to an ambient temperature before it enters the home. Probably the most impressive piece of equipment we’ve seen in a home: a geothermal heat pump.  In this neighborhood, the pump accesses water 300 feet below the surface to heat the home!   And because the homes only require ¼ of the heating capacity of the smallest furnace available, they were able to install 3” ductwork… now that’s impressive.

The homes impressed us at every turn and we look forward to touring again as the community takes shape.  The current homeowners seem very happy in their homes and are thrilled to not pay a cent on their energy bills.  Geos Neighborhood is currently wrapping up phase one of construction and can barely keep up with demand.  Thankfully, there are still 2 more phases to go! 
        

If you want to learn more about energy efficient homes, look out for our invitation to our THINKtank next March where we will be hosting a panel of experts to learn more!  Contact our team at info@invalescore.com for more informaiton on the homes

The panleists were incredibly insightful and resourceful... we learned tons and are pumped to start some new projects!  The first THINKtank was attended by realtors and investors from companies across the metro area.  It was great to network and connect.  

This month THINKtank will continue with a construction site tour of University Homes.  In November, we will have Michael Gifford, President/CEO of Associated General Contractors join us with an update on Construction Defects Law.

Englewood Developments in Full Swing!

A Flurry of Activity South of Hampden

By Gilda Zaragoza - May 18, 2018

New home developments are moving south of Hampden Avenue and Invalesco Real Estate is leading the way.  The City of Englewood is saturated with scrapes on nearly every block between Yale Avenue and Hampden Avenue, including a few Invalesco homes. 

Last Summer, we saw the opportunity to bring our developments South of Hampden.  The action and redevelopment of South Broadway has already extended south with new restaurants and shops opening on a monthly basis.  We love the feel of the neighborhood and partnered with Northland Construction to build 6 new homes in the neighborhood.

The first set of these homes has been completed at 3660 and 3662 S Elati Street.  They are spectacular homes that are much larger than what we have delivered in the past.  The next  homes are soon to break ground 2 blocks away on Galapago St.



Since our foray into the neighborhood, we are seeing other developers also moving South with another planned Triplex on Elati Street and more homes East of Broadway.  We are excited to be pioneering in this neighborhood and see a significant transtion period within the next 3 years.
