News > The new must-have in Denver Townhomes

published on 2017-02-01

Vertical living is on the rise in the Mile-High City. With a steady flow of new townhomes steadily cropping up in the Denver area, the time has never been better to opt for the low maintenance, multi-level lifestyle. The bells and whistles you can find in new construction has never been greater either. In addition to traditional two-story floor plans, a large number of new generation units contain three and four spacious levels filled with a plethora of upscale interior features.

But one of the hottest, must-haves in new townhomes isn’t on the inside. To the contrary, Denver builders are attracting buyers’ attention by building townhomes with rooftop decks, which can range in size from the entire upper floor of a townhome to partial rooftops accessed by adjoining internal space. Either way, a rooftop deck is a premier feature with boundless living potential.  Here are some reasons to love rooftop decks:

More Space than a Patio

Between private yards, patios and balconies, outdoor space has always been a required townhome feature that duplicates the look and feel of a house. But with the rise of rooftop decks, the outdoor canvas opens up.  In the spirit of “the more outdoor space, the better”,  townhomes like those at Champa Place offer sprawling rooftop decks as well as patios and multiple balconies.

A New Flex Space

Whether you’re enjoying a sunrise while sipping your morning coffee, ending your day with a nightcap under the stars or simply relaxing with a good book or sunning, you’ll find multiple ways to utilize your outside flex space. Your rooftop deck is essentially a blank canvas that you can transform into anything that fits your lifestyle.

Some people use the space for a casual outdoor sitting, grilling and dining area. Yet others make a full-blown splash by designing alfresco entertainment space that includes an outdoor kitchen as well as dining, seating and bar furniture needed to accommodate rooftop gatherings.

Still other townhome owners are going a step further and adding a hot tub to the mix – provided it meets specified weight limits. Elati 22 Townhomes have engineered rooftop decks for hot tub installation along with providing water and gas hookups. You just purchase the hot tub and voila.

A Better View

From sparkling cityscapes to the natural beauty of the serene mountain range, sunrises and sunsets, spectacular panoramic views are a huge advantage of Denver townhomes with rooftop decks. In addition to the elevated vantage point of roofs, which significantly enhances depth and dimension, vistas aren’t obstructed by fences like those on private patios. Though roof parapet walls are required for security, most are in the 42-inch range. For privacy reasons, however, walls are higher in a handful of communities.

18th and Julian – a new boutique community in Sloan Lake – is a prime example of stunning views. Its rooftop is accessed off the third floor loft, and views include breathtaking Rocky Mountain sunsets, the glittering Downtown skyline and game lights at Mile-High Stadium. Views at Mayfair Row – located in East Denver – show a different picturesque perspective of the city. Whether you’re entertaining or enjoying solitude, nothing sets the mood more than amazing views as a backdrop.
