Where do you want to live? Consider Douglas County, Colorado...

By
Real Estate Agent with The Berkshire Group Realtors

Pikes Peak, Colorado The Denver metro area consists of 7 close by counties. One of the most popular counties to reside in this decade is Douglas County, home to Highlands Ranch, Parker, Lone Tree, Castle Rock, Castle Pines, Larkspur and Sedalia.

Currently Douglas County is the 6th fastest growing county in the U.S. down from #1 of previous years. Growth has slowed down a little, but the popularity of Douglas County has not slowed at all. National media agrees, read on:

Castle Rock of Douglas County is featured the August 2007 issue of Family Circle Magazine for being one of the 10 Best Towns for Families. The criteria for being considered was to "blend affordable houses, good jobs, top-rated schools, wide-open spaces, and a lot less stress." Castle Rock certainly qualifies with all those features!

Castle Rock is located south of Denver on I-25. It is midway between Denver and Colorado Springs making it an excellent choice for families who may work in each of the major Colorado cities.

Castle Rock, Colorado
Douglas County was featured in Money Magazine as one of the "skinniest" counties. It ranked 18th on the list for job growth.

Parker, another popular Douglas County hometown, was ranked 30th on the "100 best Places to Live" list.

Douglas county as a whole offers a nice blend of both town and rural living. Residents enjoy close proximity to the recreation in the mountains and the sizzle of Denver culture, all never more than 60 minutes away.

The Douglas County School District is headquartered in Castle Rock and is officially the 3rd largest school district in Colorado. As a result of the influx of new students, the district is in the process of building more schools. Students in Douglas county can almost count on attending a new or fairly new facility.

Academic achievements of students in the Douglas County school average well above the overall Colorado state averages in all grades. Douglas County is a destination for parents wanting to place their children in an excellent learning environment.

Kristal,

Thanks for the post. Just the other day I told my wife when I retire and we relocate, I want to live in a house that when you go out the door, you can't see anyone for miles. Could Douglas County be the answer?

Parker really is a little gem...seems so separate from Denver, yet maybe 20 minutes or so to get to all my favorite places like Cherry Creek and Park Meadows!  Oh to have a similar mall down here in the Springs!

Krystal, I really admire your posts but mostly I admire the way your images have a shadow. Can you write a blog and share and how to do that or is that your secret? Or am I still in the caveman ages? :)
