Classic Homes presents charming, unique alley-load garage concept in The Village of Torino
Today and tomorrow mark the official opening weekend for Classic Homes’ Renaissance Collection in The Village of Torino at Flying Horse. Starting in the low 300’s, this new collection of homes has never been seen before in this award-winning master planned community; and people are flocking to call one of the five available plans home. Of the 53 home sites nestled in the southwest corner of Flying Horse, 20 are already under contract. Three two-story floorplans and two ranch floorplans bring enticing options to all.
The distinct charm of The Renaissance Collection in The Village of Torino at Flying Horse lies in its intimate neighborhood feel, featuring alley-load garages, and endearing front porches that overlook green communal space or the future planned park. From the inside-out, this community concept is aesthetically unique and architecturally stunning. The garages, all facing each other at the back of the homes, do not detract from the alluring front exterior architecture; and out the front door, instead of seeing cars pass by, you see inviting community spaces that beckon you to enjoy some sunshine and good company.
The Renaissance Collection affords the perfect home buying solution for a range of buyers – from the empty-nester looking to downsize; to the new family aspiring to enjoy first-class amenities and award-winning D20 schools; to the young professional looking for a sense of community; to the country-hopper looking for a second (or third) place to call home in colorful Colorado. The cozy front porches and charming neighborhood feel makes for a vibrant lifestyle. As a bonus, all homes in The Village of Torino include a coveted Social Fitness Membership to The Club at Flying Horse, so residents will quickly enjoy the social atmosphere.
It’s not just the neighborhood, but the homes themselves that bring joy and ease to residents. Classic Homes has been named the Best of the Springs Best Home Builder for 10 years running, and extends uncompromising dedication to its buyers’ needs, wants and visions. All of the homes in the Renaissance Collection include stucco and stone exteriors, granite slab or quartz countertops, oak cabinetry, Whirlpool® stainless steel kitchen appliances, ThermaTru® fiberglass entry door, and unfinished crawl space with 2 Rheem® Professional electric water heaters. Energy efficiency, quality and charm are central to the concept.
The two ranch plans consist of the 1,535 square foot Fresco plan and the 1,457 square foot Harmony plan; and the three two-story plans include the 1,762 square foot Genesis, the 1,615 square foot Millennium and the 1,854 square foot Tranquility. Each plan comes complete with beautiful, low-maintenance landscaping. The highly popular Fresco and Tranquility model homes are officially open for viewing on Volterra Way during this weekend’s open house and beyond.
Just minutes away from this special collection are the praise-worthy amenities. With its lush, 18-hole Tom Weiskopf Signature Golf Course, European resort-style Golf Clubhouse, an exquisite Steakhouse, and a world-class Athletic Club and Spa, the community affords an extraordinary lifestyle. The Golf Course itself is rated as one of the top 10 courses in Colorado, while the breathtaking Golf Clubhouse offers sweeping terraces, an open-air fireplace, a wine tower, private dining and event rooms, outdoor dining, and spectacular views of both the golf course and the mountains. And, coming soon, residents have an opportunity be part of the next chapter of Flying Horse with an all-new 18-hole Phil Smith Golf Course currently under construction in Flying Horse North.
But you don’t have to be a golf lover to indulge in a full range of amenities. The Athletic Club and Spa features a heated year-round 25 yard lap pool, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, group fitness classes, yoga and Pilates studio, state-of-the-art athletic equipment and much more. The Spa extends hair services, nail care, makeup services, body treatments, facials and massage therapy. Further, a concierge medical center, D20 Discovery Campus K-12 School, and Shoppes featuring food, convenience and retail pads make the community an all-inclusive haven for its residents.
Attend the open house today Saturday, January 20 or tomorrow, Sunday, January 21. You can also schedule a tour or simply walk in during regular office hours Mon.-Sat. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. or Sun. 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
