Denver’s Foxfield Equestrian Properties near City

Foxfield Colorado real estate outside of southeast Denver includes Colorado horse properties close enough to metropolitan amenities and employment.  The rural home sites in the Town of Foxfield are situated off Arapahoe and South Parker roads.  All are at least two acres and offer fabulous views of the Rocky Mountain Front Range.

Foxfield neighborhoods extend over 1.3 miles.  They feature street names as varied as the architecture of the Denver CO real estate:  Sedalia, Andes, Costilla, Telluride, Easter, Richfield, Waco, Pitkin, Buckley, Quintero.  That’s probably because the community of small Colorado ranches only recently incorporated when the town of 750 sought to preserve their little bit of countryside so close to the big city.

To prevent being annexed by Aurora or Greenwood Village, the community rose to the occasion and protected their country values.  To this day, townsfolk continue to communicate through a monthly newsletter called Communiqué, form neighborhood watch groups, volunteer, gather for a Fourth of July Parade and BBQ, and trot through the ten miles of country streets.  The board regularly meets at the Parker Fire Station #2 over budget and any concerns.

Foxfield is specifically located at an elevation of 5,755 feet at the southeast tip of Cherry Creek State Park and Valley Country Club.  It is east of Highway 83, well within the 470 circle.  The Centennial Airport and Denver Tech, Inverness, and Meridian business centers lie to the west.

Hiking trails in the area are located as close as Cherry Creek State Park, Aurora Reservoir, and Smokey Hill Ridge.  Horseback riders explore trails systems along the Platte River South Trail, The Colorado Trail, and into the Rocky Mountains.  Centuries ago, the Kiowa, Cheyenne, and Arapaho likewise traversed the area.  And there are numerous ways to enjoy the Colorado sunshine out on the golf courses at South Suburban, the Meridian Golf Club, Inverness Golf Course, Highlands Ranch, and the Family Golf Nine Hole.

Residents find ample opportunities for employment, recreational and cultural activities, and interesting shopping at places such as the Park Meadows Mall or five miles into Downtown at trendy pavilions and at LoDo.  But Foxfield’s business district does mighty fine for most residents with its Barn Store that brings in 1-percent tax revenues to fill the coffers.
