Halfway between Denver and Boulder, space is currency, and Heritage Todd Creek generously doles it out.
Whether you’re looking out your back door or
lounging in the pool, you’re treated to sprawling plains that give way to the
snow-capped Rockies to the west, both vying for your attention.
day you can watch thunderclouds sweep along the horizon from the comfort
of your home. In what used to be farmland as far as the eye can see, towns
and communities have popped, building on that blue-collar heritage by
taking advantage of fertile ground and temperate weather. If you are a
person that likes to experience all four seasons, the world just north of
Denver lets you experience it without veering too extreme one way or
At night the lights of downtown Denver beckon to those looking for
adventurous eats. If you want to eat a hearty meal like the miners and
farmers of old, Tom’s Home Cookin’ in the Five Points district serves up
straightforward comfort food in portions that you’ll have no choice but to
bring home and stash away in your stainless steel refrigerator. If your palate
is craving something a bit more foreign, Pho 95 at Mar Lee & Centennial
dishes up hot bowls of this staple Vietnamese soup. At the end of the day
your brand new home gives you the space to stretch out, relax, and
recharge so you can do it all over again tomorrow!
Featuring three collections of homes, Heritage Todd Creek offers over a
dozen home builds to fit your lifestyle. Whether you’re looking for open living
areas, extra bedrooms for visiting grandkids, or a little extra room in the
garage for your own personal hobby workshop, there is a home that is
perfect for you in our community.
The spacious kitchens and living areas have plenty of room for your full life
to grow even more. And as your home fills with familiar family and new
friends, you’ll be able to move effortlessly to your back patio where your
view will be spectacular, looking out across the plains or right on the fairway
of our luxurious 700-acre Arthur Hills-designed 18 hole golf course.
Spring and summer is where the community comes to life with rousing
Pickleball tournaments (complete with trophies), outdoor yoga classes,
bicycling clubs that let you see the plateau from a whole new perspective,
and Couples 9-hole golf tournaments for players of all skill levels. A short
drive northwest brings you to the hip and happening Boulder where you can
hit the trails and explore the Rockies. A good starting point is the Mount
Sanitas Trailhead just west of downtown, offing up a number of scenic trails
for those looking for a simple stroll to experienced hikers looking for some
more diverse terrain.
And when the links get covered in snow our members don’t let that deter
them from firing up the golf carts and touring them around the community
for some wonderful caroling during the holiday season. And if you want
some winter fun without the need to bundle up, a short 20-minute drive
west will bring you to the doorstep of the Ice Centre at the Promenade in the
lovely Westminster, CO. This triple-sheet ice rink has plenty of opportunities
to get in some exercise or cruise around with your sweetheart. Afterwards
you can cross the street to take in the latest films at the 24 Screen AMC
Westminster, or grab a cocktail at Bar Louis or a beer at Rock Bottom
Brewery. Just make sure you’re back home in time for the annual garage
sale where members can snatch up art and décor they’ve secretly been
coveting from their neighbors.
