Highlands Ranch

A suburb of Denver, Highlands Ranch is a census-designated place (CDP) in Douglas County and ranked as one of the most progressive master-planned communities in the country.  It is divided into four neighborhoods: Eastridge, Westridge, Northridge and Southridge.  Homes range in price from the $300,000's to more than $2,000,000.   

Home to over 100,000 people (31,000 homes) and 1,000 businesses, employing more than 6,800 people, Highlands Ranch lies just 12 miles south of the Denver metro area.  The first residents moved into their new homes in 1981, and as of 2017 building is nearly complete. 

Highlands Ranch offers an abundance of excellent schools, shopping, and restaurants. The majority of this sprawling community is dedicated to open space and recreation. Homeowners enjoy the Backcountry Wilderness Area - 8,200 acres of open space wilderness, parks, trails and four recreation centers.

All Highlands Ranch homeowners living in designated neighborhoods are members of the Highlands Ranch Community Association (HRCA) and are required to abide by the convenants outlined in the Community Declaration and other governing documents.  After residents purchase a home in Highlands Ranch, the title company will send homeowner information to the HRCA administrative office (this usually takes two to three weeks). New residents must then come into one of the recreation centers to complete a Member Information Form and purchase a membership card.
