Situated on a ridge with sweeping mountain views and quick access to Boulder, Longmont and Denver, The Heritage at Vista Ridge offers quality patio homes and a low maintenance lifestyle in a welcoming community with ample amenities. It’s the kind of place you hope to find when it’s time to downsize or simplify your lifestyle.

Many home developments claim to deliver the perfect lifestyle package, but for the real story, nothing beats what the homeowners themselves will tell you.

Russ and Ann Buckley, who describe themselves as “casual, retired empty nesters,” have lived at The Heritage for one year, choosing the community for its location and turn-key, no-maintenance lifestyle. “We’re just 20 minutes from Boulder or Denver. It’s easy to get to the mountains, shopping and cultural events. With only 68 homes at The
Heritage, the HOA is small and personal,” Russ says. “I even liked it enough to be on the Board of Directors.”

After looking at three different model homes at The Heritage, the Buckleys chose the Somerset design, citing the flow of the home’s layout. “Actually, we liked all three of the homes we looked at,” Ann recalls, “but the Somerset matched our needs the best.”

“There are two pools here, and lots of bike trails. It’s great for when our grandchildren come to visit,” Ann says.
“There’s a fairly good variety of ages here, from families to retired couples. We like the friendly neighbors and enjoy getting together for dinners at the clubhouse.”

Gary and Janice Teegarden could have had their pick of many new communities. “When we decided to downsize, we actually spent the better part of three years looking for our new home,” says Gary. “The Heritage at Vista Ridge clearly offered the best location and the best value, from the views to the floor plan to the quality of construction. We
wanted a home with the living spaces and master bedroom on the main level, but we didn’t have to give up a second bedroom and bathroom.”

“We liked the two-sided fireplace set into a long wall, where we’ve also installed a media center,” Janice adds.

The Teegardens, who moved into their new home in August, appreciate the welcoming neighborhood and its social
activities. “We’ve gotten to know each other pretty quickly; these are warm, welcoming people,” Janice says. Their former residence, Gary notes, was in a community with hundreds of homes. “The homeowners association here is small enough that you actually get to know everyone.”

There’s no better time to visit The Heritage at Vista Ridge

The Buckleys and Teegardens are representative of many of the residents at The Heritage at Vista Ridge, who appreciate the special combination of lifestyle, amenities and location. Dave Hildebrand, community sales manager, says first-time visitors are impressed with what the community offers. “We are down to the last remaining 12 or 13 homes here,” he says, “so now is a great time to see for yourself what sets us apart from other communities.

“We’re also offering a couple of great buyer incentives right now,” Hildebrand says. Through the end of April, home buyers at The Heritage will receive a full year of twicemonthly maid service. And buyers of select ranch homes will receive a two-year lease on a brand new Lexus RX400h hybrid SUV, the perfect complement to your energy-efficient,
Built Green home, and for getting out and enjoying the freedom of your new turn-key, lock-and-leave lifestyle.
