Best Luxury Home Communities for Viewing the Fall Foliage

Mountain Views and Gorgeous Treelines at Our New Homes for Sale in Denver

If you’re a first time visitor to Colorado – specifically the Denver area – one thing you’ll immediately notice, of course, is the natural beauty.

In the fall, that beauty is even more striking as the leaves begin to turn. The mountain views, which are already stunning, grow vibrant with reds, yellows, and oranges. It is as if you were inside of a high-end outdoor-living catalog.

One of the key amenities of living in one of Oakwood Homes’ new homes for sale in Denver is the beautiful, scenic backdrop that will be with you every day of your life in your new community.

You may even find yourself selecting a new home based on more than just energy-efficiency, spacious floorplans, and modern designs. You might just add the autumn foliage as an additional reason to look into our selection of new homes for sale near you!

To help you find the very best places for viewing the spectacular colors of autumn, we highly-recommend two master-planned communities, Reunion and Thompson River Ranch, as they both offer autumn views that will overwhelm you with their beauty.

Reunion: A Community of Luxury Homes with Striking Natural Beauty and More

One of the first things you’ll notice about the Reunion community, brought to you by Oakwood Home’s team of luxury home builders in Colorado, is the Reunion Coffee House.

What better place to begin your adventure of looking at fall foliage than a latte, tea, or a simple cup of coffee? The Reunion Coffee House is a go-to spot for all of our Reunion residents as they head off to work, catch up with a friend, or grab some lunch before heading out into the many green spaces this community has to offer.

Once you’ve got that warm cup in your hands, you can stroll in any direction to see the gorgeous leaves, but – in particular – you’re only about 10 miles north of tree-lined Lake Ladora, where you can walk the trails and witness Colorado’s beauty in full force.

If you have time for a convenient day trip, Reunion is only an hour drive from one of our nation’s truly majestic national treasures, the Rocky Mountains. Once you’re there, you won’t be able to miss the awe-inspiring colors as well as the overwhelming mountain views.

Oakwood Home’s new homes in Colorado all feature great schools, community gathering places, and affordable luxury. But, if natural beauty is on your must-have list for a new home for sale near you, Reunion is nearly unbeatable.

Thompson River Ranch: A Destination for Luxury Homes and Nature Lovers Alike

Competing with Reunion for one of the top spots for viewing the fall foliage is Thompson River Ranch, which is a master-planned community that features some of the finest energy-efficient new homes for sale in Denver. Also featuring many trails to walk, bike, and run, this community is a wonderful destination for burning off energy while getting inspired by the beauty of Colorado.

Because Thompson River Ranch was planned around the gorgeous views that Colorado has to offer, you’re never too far from parks, forests, and lakes, which all feature the eye-popping colors that autumn provides.

This community is also a very short day trip away from the many mountain parks in the Rocky Mountains, so you’ll be able to glimpse the fall foliage there from a distance. You can pack a picnic and spend the day driving to find the best views for that perfect photo of you and your family to send out during the holidays.

As another excellent selection in our portfolio of new homes for sale near you, Thompson River Ranch is a stand-out, even to our team of home builders in Colorado who have planned communities extensively in this gorgeous state, and beyond.

Our Luxury Homes Blend Architectural Taste with the Natural Luxury of the Outdoors

Oakwood Homes is proud to offer new homes for sale in Denver that have everything you might want: state-of-the-art appliances, intuitive floor plans, outdoor living areas, and the kinds of community amenities that will make you feel right at home among your neighbors.

In addition, the natural beauty of the outdoors makes you feel like you’re getting an added bonus by moving to one of our homes for sale near you. Energy-efficiency and expansive porches and decks for your home may be wonderful add-on that our home builders in Colorado always provide, but being able to look out on trees burning with autumn leaves is a sight to behold, inspiring the poetry scribe or photographer in all of us.
