Reminiscent of an Earlier Time, Hover Place Northeast of Denver, Colorado Draws Retirees Seeking Security, Sophistication and Luxury

Hover Place, located in Longmont, Colorado, about 40 minutes northeast of the capital city of Denver, is an elegant active adult retirement community (for those age 60 and better) comprised of six attractive Tudor-style buildings that evoke the warmth and security of an earlier time.   These homes are condominiums and are part of a larger, well-regarded community known as Hover Community, which includes senior apartments and an assisted living facility.

 

 

Hover Place has nine floor plans; price depends on the size and location of the unit.  Each of the six buildings is secure and has two floors with three residences on the first floor and five residences on the second floor.  And while units are priced above the national average, they are less expensive than retirement communities in neighboring, pricey Boulder.  All units have one level (no steps), two bedrooms, two baths, an oversized patio/deck and an oversized, attached, one or two car garage with a keyless entry pad (and an elevator for those on the second floor).   Standard features include wide doorways, slip-resistant floors, easy-open door levers, shower benches and two-tone, semi-gloss paint to reduce interior glare.   Units also have 9-ft. to 10-ft. ceilings, air conditioning,  a full-size dining room, a kitchen island and a full-size dining room.

 

HOA fees include exterior maintenance, ground maintenance and clubhouse maintenance, water and sewer, basic cable and the medical/emergency system found in each unit.   Exterior walkways meander through gardens and grassy areas and are slip-resistant.  A gazebo and plenty of benches throughout the community make it a peaceful place to stroll, meditate and just enjoy a lovely Colorado day.

The six buildings are clustered around the soon-to-be-built clubhouse, which will have roughly 2,500 sq. ft. with a kitchen, a recreation room, a large fireplace, a fitness room and a patio/BBQ area.   This is a new community so future activities are still being determined but most likely will include trips, concerts, holiday get-togethers, etc.    Visit www.hovercommunity.org for more information.

One of the most appealing aspects of Hover Place Flats is the size of the community.  It does not sprawl and has a total of 48 homes, giving it an intimacy not found in large developments.  The architecture, medieval yet modern, is unusual, another reason Hover Place stands out.   The Hover Community, of which Hover Place is the latest addition, was once a farm owned by a prominent Denver family, Katherine and Charles Hover.  Katherine's dream was to see the land turned into a place where senior citizens could live with dignity. 

Today Hover Community and Hover Place are just that.  As part of this larger community, Hover Place is bounded by Hover Acres Park, small lakes (ponds, really) and is not far from shopping, dining, walking trails, medical facilities, golf courses and churches.   Beatrice Hover Assisted Living and Hover Manor Senior Apartments are close at hand as well.

 

 

The climate in this region of Colorado is definitely four-season, characterized by cool, sometimes cold, winters and rainy (or warm and dry) springs (it varies from year to year).   Falls are crisp, and summers can now bring 100 degree temperatures (this never used to be the case), although 80s are more the average.  This is a semi-arid area, so humidity is low.  It does snow, but as in much of Colorado, the snow usually comes one day and is completely gone the next, leaving behind the bluest sky one has ever seen.  The sun shines 300+ days a year.
