Designed by award winning environmental planner David Clinger, Saddle Rock’s island-like neighborhoods “float” in a sea of emerald fairways, parks, parkways, and green space marked by trails and dotted with mature trees. More than one-third of Saddle Rock is devoted to recreational uses.
The gated, master-planned community is centered on the Saddle Rock Golf Course. Named the eighth “Best New Affordable Public Course” in the country by “Golf Digest” when it opened in 1998, Saddle Rock features bluegrass fairways, natural wetlands, and native cottonwoods. Many homes boast fairway frontage, while dramatic mountain views abound throughout the area.
Family activities often begin at the indoor pool, kiddie pool, sundeck, tennis and basketball courts, and lodge-style clubhouse at the Saddle Rock North recreation center where ample picnic facilities include shade shelters, shaded eating areas, and a playground.
Myriad housing choices – custom single-family homes at various price points, patio homes, townhomes, and condominiums – can accommodate almost any lifestyle, from first-time buyers to young professionals, growing families, and empty nesters.
The Tanglewood neighborhood provides spectacular settings and golf course frontage, while Ironwood’s luxury custom homes enjoy mountain views. Patio homes in wide variety of styles can be found in the Cottages, Star Pass, Turnberry, and Shadow Creek neighborhoods.
For the price-conscious, Moonshadow and Homestead feature economically priced townhomes and condos. At Troon Creek, Panorama Point, Oak Hill, and Bay Hill, luxury single-family homes abound at prices ranging from affordable to upscale.
Children attend school in the acclaimed Cherry Creek School District, among the very best in the country. Among the district’s latest, sparkling Grandview High lies within walking distance.
Saddle Rock’s airy heights belie its proximity to the new Southlands shopping district, fine restaurants and retail stores, offices, and major highways and throughways to Downtown Denver, DIA, Denver Tech Center, Park Meadows Mall, and mountain parks and resorts. Saddle Rock Village, which spans E-470, includes JoAnn Fabrics, Office Max, PetSmart, and Super Target.
At the nearby Smoky Hill Road interchange, “Main-Street” style Southlands overflows with lifestyle and entertainment retailers anchored by a Colorado Cinema 16-Screen Theater, Gart Sports (Sports Authority), Barnes and Noble, Sam’s Club, and Wal-Mart. Of course, there’s a wealth of tempting eateries.
