The second phase of the Blackhawk townhomes is in the works.
That may be good news for urban transplants and others looking for a break from the mountain-mode of architecture.
"We're seeing a lot more buyers that like the modern style," listing broker David Baldinger Jr. said. "It's completely unique within its price range."
The four- to five-bedroom units in the second phase will be priced from the high $600,000s to low $800,000s, he said.
The townhomes, on Village Drive near Walton Creek Road and AprÃs Ski Way, are distinctly contemporary with bold, loft-like spaces, steel beams, hardwood floors, exposed concrete block and wood accents.
Katie Kiefer and Scott Myller of West Elevation Inc. designed the units.
The second phase will have five units averaging about 2,500 square feet of living space. The first phase, completed in early 2004, had three units. Two of those townhomes have sold, and the third is pending sale, Baldinger said.
The developer, Deep Blue LLC, originally planned for 22 units in the Blackhawk development.
Each townhome is three or four levels and includes a one or two-car garage.
Owners of nearby townhomes initially disapproved of the modern look of Blackhawk units, arguing that the development would clash too much with surrounding properties.
The architects revised their design so the units would have cedar siding and sloped roofs instead of flat ones.
Lowered track lighting and fixtures, exposed copper pipe and retro-style showers and sinks are among features in the first-phase units.
Developers will begin taking reservations for the units later this month. There may be some opportunity for custom upgrades in the units during the reservation process, he said.
