Douglas County will soon be home to one of Colorado’s most remarkable master planned communities, Sterling Ranch. In 2016 alone, Douglas County grew by 8,770. While many residents believe that Douglas County is growing too rapidly, demand for housing in the area is high. And anticipation of the new Sterling Ranch community is palpable.
Situated between Santa Fe Drive and Roxborough State Park, Sterling Ranch will grow out of wide-open pastures. Nestled up against the gateway to the Front Range, the rolling terrain boasts sweeping views of the mountains and thousands of acres of a natural, preserved environment. The community will also have access to 30 miles of trails, open space, and connectivity to two state parks and three regional parks.
Sterling Ranch is a mixed-use, master planned community like no other. The minds behind Sterling Ranch hand selected the most in-demand Colorado home builders to develop and customize the dwellings. The community will feature authentic Colorado architecture, enriched by sustainable resources and forward-thinking technology. And there will be many homes differing in style, perfect for every walk of life.
There will be nine unique villages within Sterling Ranch. With pedestrian friendly design as a key element, these villages will radiate outward from an amenity rich community center and civic gathering place. Homeowners will save money and time while being part of an energy-wise community. Enjoy the amenities of modern living while still being mindful of the environment.
Providence Village is the flagship of the nine villages and will eventually include about 800 homes. It is also the first to offer new home opportunities. Those 800 homes will be the first of about 12,000 dwellings planned for the 3,400 acres community over the next 20 to 25 years. This could potentially bring more than 30,000 new residents to the area.
“At a recent Realtor Continuing Education Program hosted at Sterling Ranch, Mr. and Mrs. Smethills, the developers of Sterling Ranch, were in attendance. Hearing their story, seeing their vision and enjoying their passion for “their community” we shared their excitement for the future. Diane Smethills stated, “We are building a community for the children who’ve not even been born yet.” In short, Sterling Ranch is a thoughtful community with unbridled potential.” – Tom Cryer, Kentwood DTC
