Lennar has ranches ready to go in age-55-plus Inspiration

Homebuyers looking to make a long-term move out of the house they’ve lived in for a generation are facing a market this fall that nobody could have imagined — way too little inventory, the lowest number of homes available ever recorded for this month, at a moment when older places sell in just a few days. Meanwhile, Lennar has two ranches you’ll see today in age-55-plus Inspiration near Parker that are not only ready to go, but priced very close to what the average resale house was selling for in metro Denver last month.

“You’re going to see ranch floor plans designed for the way people live today,” says Lennar’s Matt Bond, who along with Sou Phiavong will show you the newest models, along with inventory homes that could have you moved in by the time your old place is set to close.

Bond says buyers arrive at Inspiration from a market where pickings are slim — resonating with these large ranch plans that have wide-open entertaining areas, and spaces for specialized needs including home offices.

And despite their large size they likely offer simpler maintenance responsibilities than you’re used to in your old place.

Take, for instance, a ‘Hamilton’ 3-bedroom ranch that Lennar has ready, close to Inspiration’s new Watering Hole Park. It delivers just short of 1,900 sq. feet of finished space, plus a

This Pink Kitchen Is Major Renovation Inspiration

Location: Though the address is technically on the bustling Brixton Road, the house is set back as a refuge from the action. “When you come off the street, which is really busy and hectic and polluted, and there’s this very quiet, high-walled, green garden out the back, it really does feel like a little oasis,” Rosie says.

The before: Prior to the renovation, the kitchen and living room were combined in a cramped, gloomy box. With just a single barred window, the area was so dark that Rosie needed to keep all the lights on during the day. The finishes were also rather cheap.

The inspiration: “The building itself is Victorian, but because it’s a basement flat, there are no original features—no cornicing, no historical fireplaces. If I had had those things, I probably would’ve gone for a more classical look, but I thought it would be quite nice to go for something that had echoes of modernism. I wanted it to have a slight midcentury feel, but also be quite contemporary.”

Square footage: 4 square meters (approximately 43 square feet)

Budget: £70,000 (approximately $89,700)

A smattering of artwork hangs above Rosie’s dining table. She isn’t embarrassed to confess that the California image is just the picture that came in the IKEA frame.

Main ingredients

Cabinetry: Pluck Custom Birch Plywood Cabinets with Ruskin Blossom Laminate and London Plane Veneer Fronts and Pill-Shaped Recessed Handles. “I went for the pink, which is obviously an incredible millennial cliché, but it is really lovely, soft, and easy to live with,” Rosie admits. “The wooden-fronted ones are London Plane, which is a native tree that’s found all over the city. They have a very beautiful lace grain.”

Countertops: White Corian. “I was obsessed with having really bright things because my last kitchen
