Lone Tree Real Estate
Lone Tree, CO was just empty space east of Highlands Ranch when Lone Tree Golf Club arrived here in 1986 – wasn’t incorporated as a home-rule municipality until 1996; but already had several assets that make it a center point today.
With a population of around 12,000 there’s lots of successful commercial and retail supporting the tax base. Residents of Lone Tree homes for sale can find theaters and dozens of better rated restaurants; to areas along S. Yosemite Street and Lincoln Avenue that feature family dining and grocery shopping, including a new Sprouts Farmers Market.
Lon Tree also has an advantage when it comes to commuter location: Crossed by two major freeways (E-470 east toward DIA is a toll road) that are well buffered from most of their residential neighborhoods, Lone Tree residents are within five or six miles of some of the Denver area’s most promising employment areas, including business campuses at the Denver Tech Center, Greenwood Plaza, Inverness, and Meridian.

Lone Tree, Colorado Real Estate
Lone Tree has seen solid sales all throughout its 20-year history, encompassing two ups-and-downs in the Colorado real estate market. The opening of the golf club (it has since been taken over by the highly esteemed South Suburban Parks and Recreation District) drew a Parade of Homes-style showcase event that early-on set an upscale direction to surrounding neighborhoods of Carriage Club and Heritage Estates. During the 2000s, Lone Tree saw rapid success for Heritage Hills – a luxury and semi-custom home area that featured a gated perimeter, together with higher density, lower maintenance lot sizes that were becoming preferred by a new generation of buyers.
Included in that total is 3,500-acre RidgeGate, a mixed-use master planned development by Coventry Development Corporation that wraps Lone Tree inside its southern and easternmost flanks. RidgeGate, where the hospital, arts center, and the newest corporate centers have taken or are taking shape, has already demonstrated a residential popularity that stands out from other new home areas. It’s latest Parkside community by Berkeley Homes and Harvard Communities sold rapidly right through the middle of the national housing slump; and Harvard-Berkeley has a new neighborhood near the trailhead called NorthSky that’s selling just as fast now. Among features that lure buyers — the views across the south metro area, the access to parks and open space, contemporary single-family architecture, lower-maintenance lot size, and availability of single-level ranch plans – becoming coveted around Denver as the Baby Boom generation looks toward retirement living.
Amenities Near Lone Tree Homes
Lone Tree homes for sale benefit from a wide-variety of recreational amenties nearby. There’s a short, relatively easy hike your Colorado Home Finder agent can take you on that shows off the amazing pace at which Lone Tree has become one of the most sought-after cities in the Denver area. You park your car on Crossington Way, about a half-mile west of the burgeoning Sky Ridge Medical Center and just beyond Lone Tree’s state-of-the-art Recreation Center; and then climb Willow Creek Trail a mile to a high bluff with a mini-Stonehenge monument in flagstone.
It marks an elevation of 6,280 feet, one thousand feet exactly above mile-high downtown Denver, where a compass rose points to downtown and the high summits of the Rockies to the west. In the closer area spread out below the peak, none of the attractive neighborhoods, nor the hospital, nor the new Lone Tree Performing Arts Center, nor Charles Schwab’s headquarters bringing 2,000 jobs to the area, were there two decades ago.
Light Rail’s E and F Lines from downtown both end in Lone Tree, with stops at its super popular Park Meadows Shopping Center at County Line/470/I-25, and at Lincoln Station. But plans for the lines show future stations also coming to Sky Ridge, then crossing east of I-25 into some of the most attractive development land in the metro area – also part of Lone Tree’s 9.6 square mile expanse.
