The Lodge at Balfour
Located near the foot of the Rocky Mountains, this Independent Living Community contains 95 rental units and 8 cottages. It is constructed adjacent to Balfour Senior Living’s first development as part of a “Continuum of Care” consisting of independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing. The Lodge plan is organized around a central courtyard which unifies public spaces (community living room, bar, library, community room, crafts room and business center) and the adjacent residences. The building’s architecture is based on a Colorado mountain lodge, with exposed wood beams and stone exteriors. The living room is a two-story grand space with monumental fireplace and exposed wood trusses. Amenities also include a large formal dining room, a private dining room, informal “pub” dining room, offices, lap pool, exercise facilities, beauty salon, parking garage, and resident storage area.
