The new Portrait Collection with Optional Accessory Dwelling Units is an Exciting Debut for Classic Homes – and Colorado Springs!

Classic Homes brings something new to the table every year. . .and now the Portrait Collection is even more picture-perfect, with the first new build project offering accessory dwelling units (ADU) as a potential rental income property in the Greenways at Sand Creek neighborhood. These secondary living spaces – smaller independent dwellings privately situated above the primary residence – share the same building lot of a larger, primary single-family home and can provide additional income through rent (or house a family member or friend).

“The Portrait Collection is truly a game-changer in the world of home design,” says Kim Sandoval, director of corporate marketing of Classic Homes. “By building new homes with an optional ADU, we’re giving homeowners the flexibility to create the ideal living space that suits their individual needs and lifestyles and providing the opportunity to build wealth and equity with potential rental income.”

These new, flexible and stylish residences are complemented with the new Greenways Community Park (completion this fall) with a pond, event pavilion, play area, picnic spaces, open fields, a hammock garden and a Tier 1 Trail.

ADU Requirements
ADUs must be built to specific building codes, which are different requirements than traditional single-family homes. They must also have a separate and distinct entrance, exit, kitchen, laundry, living area, sleeping area, bathing area, and bathroom facilities.

The Benefits of an ADU
There are a host of advantages to an ADU, including:
• The potential to increase housing affordability – for homeowners and tenants.
• The creation of a wider range of housing options within a community.
• Private multi-generational living or work from home opportunities.
• Extra (semi-passive) income from rent.
• Added value for your property.

Portrait Collection ADUs at Greenways At a central location near the Powers Corridor and First & Main Town Center, Classic Homes now blends home ownership and rental income in a single buy of a single-family home with an ADU. Two-story, single-family residences have from 1,543 to 2,391 square feet, with ADUs adding 561 square feet of living space on the same building lot, and are available with Modern, Farmhouse or Cottage-style architecture.

Home plans include low-maintenance landscape packages and fences, along with smart home and energy-saving features, plus incredible finishes like laminate flooring in the entry and kitchen, granite slab kitchen countertops and stainless-steel appliances. Homebuyers can further personalize the interior with the help of a professional design specialist at Classic’s Design Studio.

“I believe the Canvas ADU, Paintbrush ADU and Palette ADU home designs from this collection bring stylish, flexible and attainable housing options for both consumers and investors.” said Mike Tinlin, Classic’s vice president of sales & marketing.
