Neighborhood Spotlight: Highlands Ranch

Highlands Ranch, CO
Highlands Ranch is a sprawling suburban community just a few miles south of Denver. Quiet, with the highly rated Douglas County school district, it attracts families with children. The community is also known for having multiple recreation centers. These rec centers include workout facilities, pools, and more amenities for all ages to enjoy. Coffee shops and parks scatter the neighborhood. In addition, shopping centers and popular restaurants are conveniently located nearby.
Bordering the city to the West is Chatfield Reservoir and State Park. Families visit the park to camp, boat, and soak up the summer sunshine. It is the largest body of water with such proximity to Denver’s downtown. On any given weekend or evening you will find groups and people of all ages playing volleyball on the beach, gathering around a bonfire, or playing fetch with their dog. It is even a popular destination to enjoy horseback riding.


What to do?
Throughout Highlands Ranch there are activities and sightseeing for the whole family to enjoy. A beloved golf course, an indoor go-kart speedway, and a stunning arts, entertainment, and social venue known as the Highlands Ranch Mansion top the list. There is also a great museum for especially young children called the Play Street Museum.


Highlands Ranch is centrally located between three major thoroughfares, giving residents opportune access to all that lively Denver metro and colorful Colorado have to offer. It also makes any necessary commute downtown or elsewhere a breeze.


How Can I Live There?
With home prices steady and relatively low in the area, it is an especially desirable place to live. On average, homes, according to Refin, sell around $535k. The residences are farther apart than many neighborhoods closer to the city and therefore offer lots of outdoor space to enjoy.
