Gleneagles Village in Highlands Ranch CO
a 55+ Active Adult Community
(Includes All Listings From All Companies Not Just Our Listings!)


Colorado continues to appeal to many active individuals who have reached the age of 55. The State offers plenty of sunshine and a full complement of enjoyable amenities that appeal to today’s people on the go. A good example of the living options available here is the age restricted and gated Gleneagles Village Golf Community, neatly intertwined on the course here in Eastridge.

The 345 homes that make up the community are available as single family or attached homes. The Homeowner’s Association (GEV)is responsible for lawn care, snow removal, house painting, roof maintenance, trash removal and landscape care and has responsibility for the maintenance and care of the subdivision’s roadways.

As you might expect, the Gleneagles Village Clubhouse is an active focal point of our community. The recently remodeled facility provides residents and their guests with meeting spaces, a pool room and a library featuring a large screen TV for everyone’s enjoyment. Yes, there is also a complete and active kitchen where our members can plan and cook for special events and parties. Our clubhouse has a fully equipped indoor spa, an aerobics area, dance studio and bocce ball courts. Seasonally, we enjoy a terrific outdoor pool.

Of Course, There’s the Course
The exquisitely designed Dick Phelps Golf Course features 18 superb holes, framed in a backdrop provided by the scenic Rocky Mountains. The course plays from 3,454 to 4,800 yards from the back tees. Lunch is served at The Grill or at the outdoor patio.

The Homes and Real Estate of Gleneagles Village
Our active community began its life in 1984. Two distinct builder/developers were involved in the construction that eventually built 160 attached homes and 185 patio homes of 1,500 to 2,100 sq. ft.. The building phase was completed in 1993 after 345 total units were completed.

The Lifestyle in Gleneagles Village
As a mature, established community, the development has been and continues to be well maintained. It meets and often supasses the expectations of current buyers. The materials and design that were incorporated remain current, so that the experience residents share are all positive. Homes prices within our development represent a great value for current buyers. In simple terms, Gleneagles Village has terrific eye appeal, nested as it is among the mature plantings and professional landscape schemes of the owners. You will not have to deal with the constant racket and dust of construction traffic rambling up and down your streets, as you would in a new development.

The end result of owning a home within the boundaries of Gleneagle Village is that you will be welcomed as part of a well-established enclave of neighbors who take pride in where they live. On the other hand, if you are a more private household you can choose the level of participation that best suits you. We know that you will enjoy the security that a gated community offers. Many residents are quite comfortable in the knowledge that they share in a secure and safe small town atmosphere. Neighbors watch out for neighbors here and that is a good thing.

The bonus is that if you, on occasion, choose the allure of Denver or other larger communities, they are easily within your reach. You can head out to Highlands Ranch Town Center and Park Meadows. If you need more, hot spots such as Aurora, Littleton and Denver are close. Its all here if you know where to find it!

We think you will agree that when you visit with Gleneagles Village, you may not want to leave.

 How’s the Weather in Denver CO? 

 Mild and Mile High! The biggest surprise for visitors to Denver CO real estate is the climate. The arid conditions bring only 8 to 15 inches of annual precipitation and locals wake up to more than 300 days of sunshine a year. That’s more annual hours of sun than Miami and San Diego.

How’s the weather? Thanks to Denver’s 300 days of blue skies and sunshine each year, the forecast is almost always a good one.

Winters are mild with an average daily high temperature of 45 degrees Fahrenheit and days reaching 60 degrees are not uncommon. Snow doesn’t stay on the ground long in Denver so golf courses and outdoor cafes are able to stay open all year.

In summer, Denver enjoys low relative humidity, making for beautiful, sun-filled days and cool, comfortable evenings. The average daily high temperature in August is a mild 86 degrees Fahrenheit. The mild weather is due in part to the city’s altitude: 5,280 feet above sea level, or exactly a mile high.

Colorado’s sunny, temperate climate makes year-round outdoor recreation possible. With 40 state parks and 3 national parks in metro Denver’s back yard, prime recreation opportunities abound for biking, hiking, camping, fishing, or skiing.
