Community Spotlight: Thompson River Ranch

New home builders in Colorado design the active communities you’ve been looking for!

Buyers who do a Google search on new homes near me are often presented with a list of new homes located in master-planned communities. This term — master-planned community — may be daunting for buyers who aren’t familiar with the concept. But the benefits that come with living in these communities are worth any homebuyer’s consideration.

New construction homes are only part of what makes a master-planned neighborhood popular among Colorado residents. The rest of the delight comes from the many amenities, events, and overall conveniences built into these lifestyle communities.

Oakwood Homes Builds New Homes with You in Mind

Oakwood Homes, one of the area’s many new home builders in Colorado, leads the pack when it comes to communities filled with the features today’s buyers are looking for. With over two decades in the housing industry, Oakwood Homes has the experience and first-hand knowledge when it comes to new builds in Colorado. Open floor plans, energy-efficient appliances, shared driveways, and plenty of opportunities for personalization make our new homes something to talk about. The fact that they’re also located in communities that support active, healthy, and socially connected lifestyles is a bonus for any buyer.

Take a Look at Thompson River Ranch

Thompson River Ranch, an Oakwood Homes master-planned community in Johnstown, Colorado, provides an excellent example of what one might expect from this type of community. Here are a few of the highlights.


All Oakwood Homes communities are loaded with amenities that make living in them an enjoyable and exciting experience. Thompson River Ranch is no exception. It features an outdoor pool, clubhouse, parks, trails, and an 18-hole disc golf course. New for 2022 is a second clubhouse with fitness and yoga studios, a community room, and a common-area kitchen that residents can use when hosting family and friends on the property. Another pool is also in the works, with kid-friendly splash zones and a separate diving area.

Many master-planned communities have activity directors who plan social events for the residents throughout the year. These events are a great way to stay engaged and active. It’s also a good way to get to know the neighbors!


Thompson River Ranch is close to all the places that make your life easier. Dining, entertainment, and shopping are all within a short drive. Convenient highway access near I-25 makes it easy to come and go as you please. And at The Promenade Shops and Outlets at Loveland, nearly everything one needs for home, work, or play is just a short drive away.


For families with children, the quality of the nearest school system is a significant selling point. Thompson River Ranch is surrounded by quality schools in the Thompson School District, even offering PK-8 education within the community. Parents enjoy walking the kids to school and rest easier during the day, knowing the kids are just a short walk from home.
