Sonders Fort Collins: Where Easy Living Meets Community

At Sonders Fort Collins, a sense of community is woven into every detail of the new development, from the home designs to the neighborhood footprint to its exciting onsite amenities.

Sonders, formerly known as Water’s Edge, opened for sales this summer. It’s creating a new sustainable luxury community in charming Fort Collins. The homes are impressive and blend contemporary style with sustainable, locally-sourced products. But the homes are just one element of what sets this new community apart from other developments.

Master Planned Community

The big idea behind Sonders Fort Collins is to create a place that redefines the concept of a “home.” One that extends beyond the walls of a house and into a community where residents feel connected and live their best life.

This master-planned community is built with intention and connection in mind. Nature paths lead to the neighborhood park, to nearby Richard’s Lake or to downtown Fort Collins, a convenient five miles away. The resort-style pool and onsite Sonders Learning Center offers more opportunities for casual connections and friendships built with neighbors, such as workshops and gatherings at the cottage studio.

Walking paths, green spaces and nature trails, dog parks and fitness centers were strategically integrated into this luxury community with intention and purpose. The driving force behind this concept is to build a place that is life-enriching and that gives homeowners everything they value right in their surroundings. Sonders isn’t just about building homes, it’s about building community.

About the Homes

Of course, this idea cannot exist without the innovative new homes that make up the foundation of Sonders Fort Collins.

Thrive Home Builders and Bridgewater Homes are two local Colorado homebuilders that are bringing dream home plans to life in a variety of new home collections. Both builders are committed to luxury and energy-efficient homes that last generations.

Thrive Home Builders offers single-level family homes and single-level townhomes that range between two to five bedrooms and up to 3,500-square-feet. Thrive Home Builders is a LEED certified home builder that achieves the highest standards of green building, with health and efficiency in mind. Each of their three home collections come with designer-curated finishes.

Bridgewater Homes is building ranch-style, single-family homes with two to three bedrooms and range between 3,200 to 5,100-square-feet in size. Bridgewater’s single-story homes are EnergyStar certified and combine quality, efficiency and a variety of home styles that homebuyers can choose from. The homes start in the mid $600s.

With both builders, luxury and efficiency is at the forefront, and it’s apparent in every home design, from oversized outdoor spaces that allow residents to connect with nature to exquisite finishes throughout the home.

Easy Living

Even better, Sonders Fort Collins emphasizes the concept of low-maintenance living, not only in home design but in home maintenance, too. When it comes to snow removal, yard maintenance and fertilizing and watering that front lawn, Sonders will shoulder the burden and give you that time back.

This luxury community is also redefining “easy living.” It doesn’t just apply to home maintenance anymore. At Sonders, easy living is also about the ease of getting out and enjoying amenities right outside, like fishing off the dock at Serene Park or launching a canoe or kayak. Sip on a refreshing beverage poolside, get your creative juices flowing in the ART Studio, enjoy a relaxing walk stroll on a lakeside trail or bike to Old Town Fort Collins. Easy living is doing the things you love most and this master-planned community makes that possible.

Sonders is re-imagining a healthy and vibrant, low-maintenance, luxury lifestyle and creating a community that serves every stage of life. It’s for the nature lover, the fitness enthusiast, the on-the-go family and anyone who seeks to live their life to the fullest.
