Welcome Home: Frisco’s award-winning new development

Welcome Home… and that is just what the developer at Boulevard Bend has created, a very welcome home … so says the 2011 Summit County Parade of Homes.I attended the dinner after last week’s Realtor tour of the Parade of Homes and in its category Boulevard Bend was honored seven times.First place for multi-family over $1 million, in the following categories: best overall floor plan, best community amenities, best view and best value. For multi-family under $1 million: best location, best community amenities and best view. My first I thought was, amazing! what an achievement. T his is definitely news worthy, Welcome Home here we come! In the time since, I gave thought to the process unfolding over the past year and said to myself “these folks earned their awards!” The countless hours spent acquiring land and getting it approved for their project. Finding the niche product that would serve both our community and its guests. Finding a bank willing to lend to new development in today’s real estate market. Yep, that’s three miracles so far, but wait there’s more to come.Finding a Realtor and company (BJ McCarthy & RE/MAX) willing to take on the task in this market … all I can say is that it is one incredible show of teamwork. Miracle number four!The developer is not new to this environment. He took on the task of developing in the 1980s when no one else would and grew to be a great success here in Summit County. Mountainside condos and patio homes are still a favorite among buyers and visitors. Mountain Pines and River Pines, they all played a big part in Frisco’s development over the years. If one out there is looking for an economic indicator it may just be Larry Feldman. He was there making it happen at the beginning of the last real estate boom.Enough about that. Stop by and see for yourself. This property has entry-level deed-restricted units, one plus den, one-and-a-half bath with carport for $219,900, and two-bedroom, two-bath, two-car heated tandem garage with luxury finish too for $269,900.As for the market rate properties, you can own Frisco’s signature tower unit with its own private glass elevator, two huge decks with some of the best Lake Dillon and Continental Divide views (that is hot and grill ready), wine cooler and four-car (two in the garage plus two in the carport). Custom features abound all for about a million dollars or choose other two- and three-bedroom, three-bath plans and price ranges.Units enjoy in-floor heating, knotty alder cabinets (self-closing drawer/doors), knotty alder doors and trim, stainless steel appliances, stacked-rock fireplace, custom tile, slate and travertine finishes throughout the units, stairway night light, dual-flush toilet for the water conscious with soft close seats and more.The development is located in walking distance from Main Street and the Frisco Bay Marina, adjacent to the bike and pedestrian path, just down the block from the Nordic center and tubing hill (for BMX bikes too). Boulevard Bend has so much to offer. Located at the corner of Summit Boulevard and Eighth Street in Frisco, a friendly face is ready and waiting to give you a private tour of this award winning project.Welcome home is produced by Butch Elich of RE/MAX.
