Why Consider Castle Pines CO Homes for Sale?
If you know Castle Pines, then you know a little something about lifestyle. And lifestyle is what matters here. Castle Pines is a master-planned community on the south side of the Denver metro area, between Highlands Ranch and Castle Rock, and as the name alludes, has neighborhoods and streets that are filled with glorious pine trees. Walking out your patio door in the crisp early morning, you can close your eyes, take a deep breath and experience the rugged and sweet smell of Ponderosa pines that can only happen in the mountains. Castle Pines takes the balance of nature and residential life seriously. Nowhere else in the area can you find such stunning views of the Rockies, from most every home, and take in the vanilla and citrus essence of the pine trees that are all around.
Most golf fans know Castle Pines by its signature golf course – Castle Pines Country Club – and the PGA tour events held there throughout the years and for the wealth of beautiful scenery and real estate. But outside “The Village” gates, Castle Pines is blessed to be located near some of the best shopping centers in the South Denver area, with easy access to the world-class entertainment and restaurants of Downtown Denver, only about 10 miles from the Denver Tech Center and less than an hour from the outdoor playgrounds that are the mighty Rocky Mountains. It’s easy to understand why Castle Pines is considered one of the best places to live on the Front Range. Castle Pines truly is a dream community.

Government / Economy
Castle Pines was only incorporated back in 2008, separating from the town of Castle Rock. That affords the Mayor and City Council unique opportunities to build and manage their town in ways that will enhance their unique character and resident’s sense of community while still seeking out smart commercial and retail growth.
Castle Pines already has a solid infrastructure and thriving residential community, so commercial and retail recruitment and retention are the main focus of the city council’s economic development strategy. Being a quiet residential area has it’s benefits, but the fact that most of the economic activity happens in other nearby towns exposes opportunities for entrepreneurs and larger businesses alike to move in and take advantage of a more affluent customer base as well as the lowest sales tax rate of any city in Douglas County. Those opportunities are already showing dividends as new restaurants and retail businesses grow within the mixed-use development and revitalization of the Town Center and Village Square areas.
