At NorthCreek, Your Personal “Dream Home” Can Be Realized

Denver Post

Imagine designing your own home as if you were working on a blank canvas. You would be in complete control, deciding on everything from the floorplan to your own custom finishes and special features. This opportunity doesn’t exist in most residential projects, where the developers provide standardized layouts and designs to buyers, with a handful of options for finishing out the space. It’s their vision for what your home can become, not your own.

At the ultra-exclusive NorthCreek residences in Cherry Creek North, the developers found that there was a segment of buyers who wanted the opportunity to design and customize their own home, completely. This demand was especially evident among those who were downsizing from larger estates – in places such as Cherry Hills – and wanted to create the finest and most comfortable urban living experience possible, on their own terms.

Based on this demand, NorthCreek made “core and shell” spaces available to buyers. The completely open and unfinished residences provided buyers with an opportunity to pursue their own vision, without having other people’s perceptions determine their living space.

“There is limited inventory for this truly unique opportunity, and once they’re gone, nothing else will be constructed quite like NorthCreek,” noted David Steel of Western Development Group, the developers of NorthCreek.

“The core and shell spaces at NorthCreek give people complete freedom and the ability to turn their home into their own personal showcase,” says Steve Diamond of Denver-based Diamond Homes (, a high-end home design and construction company which has worked directly with several NorthCreek buyers to help them realize their personal vision. “We’ve been able to help people plan for very special aspects and elements of their home, such as creating a ‘gallery’ for their art collections, elegant areas for entertaining and state-of-the-art kitchens for culinary artists who love to cook. It really is a special and unique offering to those who have the time and inclination to design the home they truly want.”

At NorthCreek, the sales team can help you to identify a designer and builder who will become your own private contractor. The team will be able to work with you to realize your goals and expectations, identify the very best resources for finding the materials and finishes you want, nail down costs and complete construction drawings. Most importantly, they will listen to you and your direction, so that the home you’ve always dreamed of will become reality.

“There is a tremendous amount of joy and satisfaction that comes from being part of a team, having a vision and seeing it come to life,” says Diamond. “There’s nothing like planning and designing your own home. It truly is your own.”
