Centaur Village Townhomes

In the late Seventies, a new idea came to Lafayette, Colorado. Centaur Village Townhomes offered an innovative solution for home buyers seeking more space but not more responsibility. These town houses sprouted along the trail and open space. Some of the properties offer amazing, unobstructed views of the Colorado Front Range. Others peer south, flooded with light, looking into open space and the Coal Creek Trail in the distance.

No Yard Maintenance!

People are busy. Between skiing and rock climbing, cycling and skating, there is so much to do in Colorado. Why spend all that time mowing the lawn? Centaur Village Town Houses offers a great option for today’s busy families. Plenty of space to relax and unwind at home. But no yard work. And really, if you want the outdoors, you are on a trail connecting to Waneka Lake and Coal Creek.

Fenced Yard Space

If you are today looking for a great community to call home, this Lafayette complex is ideal. Brick and frame construction. Two story plus basement layouts. Most units feature private outdoor space. Fenced space too boot. And I mentioned this neighborhood is from 1978-79 era, right? So all the trees are mature, providing great shade during the summer months.

Playground and Basketball Court

In the center of the Centaur Village Townhomes is a great playground, picnicking area and basketball court. Ample off street parking exists. But, one of the big alluring features of this community are the semi-attached one car garages sported by each unit.

An advantage to living in a Seventies built home – big mature trees

Attached One Car Garage

“Semi” because there is not a direct access into the home from your garage. But, the garages are attached to your town house building. There are two and three bedroom configurations. And many units now boast finished basements.

Danish Plan + Open Space + Innovation

A lot of the population around Boulder County is really transplanted, from somewhere else. Hey -if you are a local, you know Boulder County is a different animal than thirty years ago. So, to those not originally from Colorado, quick history lesson. In the Seventies the Danish Plan was adopted in Boulder. The idea was to preserve open space and views. At the time, this was revolutionary thinking.

And these ideas moved from the city to the County of Boulder.

Building the Centaur Village Townhomes right along open fields with gorgeous views and easy access to outdoor trails was nothing short of genius. Four decades later, Lafayette home buyers continue to delight in the location and floor plans. Would you like to see a unit? Contact me, Realtor Bob Gordon. I’ll make it happen.
