Highland Ranch | BackCounty
BackCountry is a gated community in desirable Highlands Ranch with still a few new builds left for sale. Richmond American Homes is the
main builder left in this coveted community. They are building rare Ranch Patio Homes, leaving you worry-free when it comes to exterior
and landscaping maintenance ON your property. Spend less time working on your home, and more time living in it.
When you visit Colorado’s premier gated, luxury home community, you’ll see why BackCountry is — Wild at Heart – and why it received the
prestigious ‘New Home Community of the Year’ by the Home Builders Association of Metro Denver. And while BackCountry offers the new
homes, parks and luxurious amenities you might expect, it also offers something much more. Just outside your door, South Rim, a private enclave
of 467 wild acres awaits. And, a variety of trails connect the homes to the parks and the community’s crown jewel — the Sundial House.
Follow the trails farther, and you’re soon entering the remainder of the 8,200-acre adventure known as the BackCountry Wilderness Area.*
BackCountry – Let the adventure begin. *Approximately 8,200 acres in the southern part of Highlands Ranch have been designated
as Backcountry Wilderness Area (Open Space Conservation Area). This area is dedicated to the preservation of open space,
wildlife habitat enhancement, outdoor recreation and other permitted uses. Of that, 467 acres have been set aside for exclusive,
private use for BackCountry residents.
WHAT WE LOVE
BackCountry lives up to its name, offering 467 acres of private open space for you and you alone to enjoy as a resident of this community.
The BackCountry Wilderness Area includes four ecosystems with countless plants and animals, creating the best backyard you could ever
have and trails that go on for miles. The six parks within BackCountry provide plenty of space to play, host events, or just enjoy Colorado’s
natural beauty. The Sundial House offers a panorama of everything from downtown Denver, to Longs Peak, Pikes Peak, and the 8,200 acres of
BackCountry Wilderness Area. Exclusively for BackCountry residences and their guests, go relax, use the pool, lounge on the patios,
and exercise in the fitness and movement studios!
BackCountry is in the final phase of development. Berkeley and Shea builders are closing out. Richmond American Homes will be
the last builder present with fewer than 30 Ranch Patio Homes left.
BackCountry is almost built out, so the early bird prices are long since gone. However, it’s still a beautiful area with a lot to offer in
desirable Highlands Ranch and all the amenities already well-established.
BackCountry is located in Douglas County School District, feeding to: Stone Mountain Elementary School (K-6 grades),
Ranch View Middle School (7-8 grades), and Thunder Ridge High School (9-12 grades).
