BRIGHTON — The growth in the home market in the Brighton area got another boost earlier this week with Brookfield Residential’s announcement of its long-anticipated local expansion.
The builder — responsible for the Midtown at Clear Creek neighborhood in Denver — announced Monday, Jan. 6, that their plans to expand at Brighton Crossing are coming to fruition, starting with the opening of a sales office in Brighton.
“(The move) allows Brookfield Residential to cater to families (and single occupants!) who need accommodations for an active lifestyle and a little extra space in all the right places,” according to a news release from Brookfield announcing the expansion. “Brookfield offers six different floor plans, between 1,622 and 2,300 square feet; and prices start in the high $200s for customers who wish to ‘pre-purchase’ a home.”
The first models are due to become available for viewing in March.
Two of the more distinctive features of the Brighton Crossing homes by Brookfield include an Urban Farmhouse design and a multi-load garage in every home for easy car/truck/trailer/recreational vehicle maneuverability.
“We are very excited about offering this unique design that we think will appeal especially to the active people who typically choose to take up residence in the Brighton market,” said Perry Cadman, general manager of Brookfield Residential.
The Urban Farmhouse design features board-and-batten siding (long, thin pieces of material covering the seams, both horizontally and vertically), with roof pitches to compliment the architectural style. In keeping with Brookfield Residential distinction, the homes at Brighton Crossing also have an abundance of windows.
But the most remarkable element of the Brighton Crossing homes is probably the garage that allows a driver access to the garage from the front street and from the alley. The multi-load garage provides the ability to pull forward for shelter … and then pull forward again to exit through a rear door.
Some models also have another garage in the rear of the home, with total capacity for up to four cars if a home-buyer chooses that option.
The multi-load nature of the garage also has a beneficial impact on the layout of the rest of the home. Rather than designing the floor plan in an “L” shape that wraps around the garage, architects had the flexibility to create living space (one- and two-story) that made more sense, with more efficient allocation to the kitchen, great room, storage, etc.
The Brookfield Residential sales office is at 45th and Bridge streets.
