La Bellezza Homes by Keller Homes in Colorado Springs Win Over National Judges As Residents Settle In to Celebrate Their Own Unique Lifestyle August 28, 2006.

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO - August 28, 2006 - Colorado Springs home builder Keller Homes devoted three years to the research, development, and planning of La Bellezza, an intimate village of Italian-inspired courtyard villas. The first phase of the two La Bellezza villages was completed in mid-2005, one in the peaceful valley of the Peregrine neighborhood, and one in the golf-friendly Pine Creek neighborhood.

High-powered Collaboration Proves Successful

Keller Homes sought out nationally acclaimed partners to fulfill their vision for the 50-home villages, including Scheurer Architects in Newport Beach, DTJ Design of Boulder for the landscape architecture, and interior design group of Color Design Art from Los Angeles. Keller Homes believes this high-powered collaboration is responsible for the national recognition and the local embrace of La Bellezza.

Italian-inspired Courtyard Villa Lifestyle Unique to Colorado Springs

Together, the team designed a courtyard villa lifestyle unavailable anywhere else in the region. La Bellezza gives residents in this sunny climate a refreshing way to enjoy indoor/outdoor spaces year-round. The casual, elegant villas feature multiple fresh air rooms, opening to private courtyards and backing to lush community landscaping. The artisan quality of the architecture is highlighted with rustic stone towers, tile roofs, wood porticos and trellises. Recessed stucco passages, unexpected fountains and water features, outdoor fire elements and cooking areas beckon residents to enjoy Al Fresco living.

Design Innovation of La Bellezza Receives National Awards and Recognition

The design innovation of La Bellezza as a home and community garnered Keller Homes three Gold Awards and four Silver Awards including the highly coveted “Detached Community of the Year” award at the nation's largest competition for new home sales and marketing professionals and communities.La Bellezza was also honored at the 2006 Pacific Coast Builder’s Conference‚ winning three Gold Nugget awards including the most prestigious of all, “Detached Residential Project of the Year.”

The La Bellezza Vision Takes on a Life of It's Own

The ultimate judge of La Bellezza has been the local community. Keller Homes believes its greatest reward has been watching the villages come to life. Stories continue to drift back to the builder about weekend cooking events and lively dinner parties among neighbors that go into the wee hours of the night. It's one thing to build a vision, and it's another to see that vision take on a life of its own.
