Fall in Colorado is in full swing, which means cooler temperatures, pulling jackets and sweaters out of storage, and retreating into the cozy comfort of your home for the months ahead. While summer heat may be sweet, we’re looking forward to autumn and winter for creating memories with friends and family in the warmth of our homes. Read on to discover the perfect Solstice™ interior spots for fall entertaining.

We’re sure you’ve been to a party where guests gravitate towards the kitchen, despite their hosts’ efforts to direct them elsewhere. In our gleaming chef-quality Solstice™ home kitchens, it’s easy to see why! The kitchen has so much potential for fall entertaining: Try a wine-tasting night with friends or spend date night with your loved one learning a new recipe or kitchen skill together. Collaborate on a fall charcuterie board or mix up a batch of pumpkin bread! This kitchen from the Shadowbrook floorplan showcases distinctive countertops and impressive island space with an eat-in bar, which allows guests to relax and chat as food is prepared. Warm, cozy, inviting — that’s fall entertaining in a nutshell.

Guests can also relax in the impressive great room adjoining the kitchen, many of which are equipped with a fireplace (or offer an option to add a fireplace). You’ll cherish hosting a board game night or watching a movie with your family as the sun sinks behind our gorgeous Front Range outside. Guests can sip hot cocoa, apple cider, or maybe something stronger by the glowing fire as they chat and unwind. This great room — in the Meadowview plan from the Trails Edge Collection — showcases clean, modern design and sophisticated finishes at Solstice™.

Who says fun only happens on the main floor? Many Solstice™ homes offer basements with optional finishes for additional space. Basement entertaining might be even more appealing to those with children, who’ll want to keep noise to a minimum so as not to disturb sleeping little ones. Opt for the finished basement with wet bar — pictured here in the Stillwater floorplan — and you’ll gain even more space plus an additional bedroom for family and houseguests. Cozy up by the wet bar for speakeasy-style cocktails, host a book club, or binge a new TV show in this inviting and flexible sanctuary.

You don’t have to look further than your neighborhood to find even more leisure opportunities. Our community amenity High Line House™ serves as a neighborhood hub for meeting up with old friends — and making new ones. Enjoy the social garden and event lawns for fall gatherings with neighbors, bundle up for a game of bocce, or work out together in our state-of-the-art fitness center. The bustling City of Littleton — with its abundant shopping, restaurants, and local businesses — is just down the road, serving as a gateway to the bustling Denver metro area.

Though fall means fewer outdoor barbeques and picnics and more indoor dinner parties or movie nights, we wouldn’t have it any other way at Solstice™. For more stunning interior spaces to host your next gathering, check out our available floorplans online or schedule a tour today!
