Terrain, one of the newest additions to the ever-growing Castle Rock, Colorado community, is already making waves. Having won 2014’s Home Builders’ Association’s Community of the Year for the Denver/Boulder area, new models in Terrain are selling fast. About 50 percent of Terrain’s land is made up of parks, trails, and preserved historical sites as well as a variety of indigenous vegetation and wildlife, making this subdivision ideal for people who crave authentic country living with the convenience of a modern city center less than a 5-minute drive away. Three builders, Lennar, Tri Pointe Homes, and Century Communities, are offering new houses starting in the $500,000s with styles that reflect the great outdoors of Terrain’s 1,185 acres of rolling Coloradan landscape.
Terrain Castle Rock CO Location
Located just to the northeast of the city center of Castle Rock, the Terrain subdivision is set inside of a valley right off of Founders Parkway. Its ideal location right off of Highway 86 lends itself to quick trips to downtown Castle Rock and the surrounding communities.
The brand new Sage Canyon Elementary School is easily within walking distance for many of the community’s youngest students. Mesa Middle School and Douglas County High School are less than 5 miles away, and a paved bike path connects high schoolers to Douglas High. Both Denver and Colorado Springs are easily accessible via I-25 and Founders Parkway. Both are about 40 minutes away, depending on traffic, although Denver is slightly closer. The Denver Tech Center commuting hub is less than a 20-mile, 25-minute commute away.
A bit closer, Founders Parkway is lined with eateries like the Fowl Line and Taste House Chinese, fast food and drink options like Panera and Starbucks, and big box stores like Target. Entertainment, grocery stores, houses of worship, and shopping are just short drives from Terrain, while what Terrain residents crave the most—outdoor adventure and nature—are built right into the neighborhood. Constructed next to a vast open space, Terrain Castle Rock CO already boasts the beautiful Wrangler Park and has extensive trail networks planned that will take hikers through the region’s natural wonders and local history.
Terrain Property Types
The Terrain Castle Rock CO community was designed by Starwood Land Ventures with the idea that authentic Colorado living is at the intersection between indoors and outdoors. The three builders who offer property in the area as well as the local HOA, MSI, have made it their missions to maintain this blend of indoor and outdoor living in everything from their house designs to the local parks and trails to the preservation of Colorado’s unique geological formations.
The Terrain subdivision is divided into several neighborhoods, each nestled within a different part of the land’s topography. Many properties in this nature-minded subdivision face out to open space, a greenbelt, or a park. The three builders each offer house collections distinguished by contemporary mountain designs, natural building materials, and exquisite craftsmanship.
The Lennar Grand Collection in Castle Oaks Village starts in the high $300,000s for between 1,874 and 3,022 square feet. From ranch styles like the Woodhaven, the Canton, and the Preston to 2-story family homes like the Silverleaf, the Savannah, and the Hanford, Lennar properties have between 3 and 5 bedrooms and are offered in a few different styles including the Old World, which utilizes natural stone and brick, a smooth exterior, and wooden window accents, the Shingle, or the Craftsman, which both feature decorative beams.
Tri Pointe Homes has two collections: the Prelude Collection with properties starting in the low $300,000s for between 2,059 and 2,311 square feet and the Debut with houses from the mid $300,000s for between 1,871 and 2,860 square feet of space. Both located in Flat Rock Village, Tri Pointe ranges from 2-story family residences with 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2-car garages, and a variety of aesthetics inspired by the Coloradan landscape to more striking ranch and 2-story designs and properties with extensive space. From the daring and contemporary to the quaint and charming and the rustic and classic, the Debut collection gives buyers room to show off personal style and room to grow as a family.
The last Terrain builder, Century Communities, offers the mid-$300,000s-priced Founders Collection in Castle Oaks Village and the high-$400,000s-priced Mesa Collection in North Basin Village. Both feature luxurious options like a loft and great room and endless ways to customize from fireplaces to patios and skylights.
As a new subdivision, Terrain is still undergoing development under an ambitious and unique plan from Starwood Land Ventures. Devoting about 50 percent of the subdivision’s area to open space and preserving much of the original vegetation, geology, topography, and historical sites of the distinct region, the plan will carve out trails along McMurdo Gulch, traversing the landscape dotted with sage and Gambel oak, old ranchland, and a Civilian Conservation Corps Camp from the 1930s through Wild Oak Open Space. The plan is to connect trail systems through the open space with trailheads at Hidden Mesa Open Space, Gateway Open Space, and the Woodlands Bowl Open Space along with the extensive multi-state Front Ridge Trail.
Terrain’s community park, Wrangler Park has a picnic pavilion, playgrounds for 2 to 12 year olds, playing fields, tennis courts, and trails paved for biking. A large unleashed dog park is also set to begin construction this spring. One of the subdivision’s highlights is its now-famous community swimming club. Open exclusively to residents, this large pool, patio, and indoor club area’s design is integrated with the surrounding indigenous vegetation and beautiful views.
Children in Terrain Castle Rock CO attend the new, projects-based Sage Canyon Elementary School, Mesa Middle School, and Douglas County High School, all part of the nationally recognized and academically high-performing Douglas County school system. Downtown Castle Rock, with its locally owned boutiques, independent eateries, and community flavor, is just a five-minute drive from the subdivision while shopping at the Outlets at Castle Rock and the Founders Marketplace and the new, state-of-the-art healthcare facilities at the Castle Rock Adventist Hospital are just a few minutes north and south on Founders Parkway.
