The Caribou Ridge Development


Colorado mountain living at its best.

Located just 25 minutes west of Boulder, Caribou Ridge is a luxury new home community surrounded by the beauty of the mountains in a world away that isn’t far away. Nestled on 40 tree-filled acres, the neighborhood offers unparalleled views of the Rocky Mountains and is bordered by private land, open space, and National Forest lands providing a park-like setting with year-round access to trail systems and outdoor recreation.

The individuals who will call Caribou Ridge their home will have the opportunity to live the Colorado Way. This elusive set of ideals centers on the land, the inspiration ignited by it, and the people drawn to it.

The Land
The property offers a unique opportunity to create home sites that are close to town, have good year round access, connect to existing public utilities, and are close to schools while being visually connected to the mountains. Part of a complete property reclamation program involving expert erosion and drainage control and an extensive on site recycling program, the overall development plan avoided ground disturbance on the steep slopes to protect the fragile mountain environment for the future homeowners. A complete utilization of site resources resulted in a zero import and export of construction materials. Rather than attempt to create a suburban neighborhood in the mountains, Caribou Ridge is a residential community uniquely integrated into the existing character of its surroundings with reduced impacts on the environment.

Architectural Design
The architectural design of the homes are intended to express the spirit of place, the unique qualities of location, and be a response to context and site. Natural materials and timber frame construction bring in elements of nature surrounding the property. Generous roof overhangs provide protection from the summer sun and help manage heat gain to the interior spaces. Flexible floor plans respond to the lifestyle needs of an array of buyers.
