3 Affordable Communities to Consider When Looking for New Construction in the Durango Area
When it comes to affordability, there are several communities to consider when you’re looking for new construction in the Durango area.
Mesa Meadows (Bayfield, CO)
One of these is the small community of Mesa Meadows. Located in the city of Bayfield, home construction started in Mesa Meadows in the mid 2000s. Options range from single-story to two-story floor plans, most offering three- to four-bedroom floor plans and at least two-baths. Many of the homes provide around 1,500 square feet of living space, while some of the homes top 2,000 square feet.
Close to area schools and a short distance from stores and major roadways, the community of Mesa Meadows is ideal for commuters. The family-friendly atmosphere extends to the inclusion of large lots and affordability, with many homes priced in the $300,000s.
Three Springs (Durango, CO)
Complimented by plenty of parks and open space, Three Springs serves up a traditional neighborhood experience in Durango. This neighborhood began in the early 2000s, with green home designs constructed with energy efficiency, plus community building in mind.
This master planned community blends older neighborhood design principles with the desirability of new construction. Designed in phases, the neighborhood eventually plans for a 75-acre park, retailers and office space, restaurants and even a neighborhood grocery store. The neighborhood also features numerous walking, biking and running trails, with easy access to alternative transportation options throughout the region.
Homestead Trails (Bayfield, CO)
A short commute from Durango, the neighborhood of Homestead Trails is another affordable Bayfield community that benefits from new construction homes. Surrounded by the beauty of mostly natural surroundings, Homestead Trails also features numerous trails and parks, plus plenty of open space for outdoor recreation.
The current phase of the development, Phase 2, calls for around two-dozen single-family home lots and the desirability of custom home designs, with your choice of homebuilder.
