Larkspur Colorado Horse Properties and Homes in Douglas County

Larkspur equestrian real estate is located south of Denver in Douglas County.  The many farms and Colorado ranches in the small community of about 200 residents lends a rural ambience.  Much of the real estate is updated or recently built and upscale, reflecting Larkspur’s reputation as a bedroom community.  At the same time, equestrian homes in Douglas County are near a vast array of amenities available throughout the Colorado Springs and the Denver real estate markets.

Convenient to Interstate 25, horse properties in Larkspur offer families the highly reputed Douglas County Schools and convenience to large outlet malls in Castle Rock and shopping at Park Meadows.  A diverse employment base is present along Interstate 25 and its connecting highways.

Larkspur horse properties come in a variety of sizes.  Listed in the current Douglas County real estate market are several wonderful equestrian homes with acreage.  They range from 2 to 1400 acres, so there is a great selection.  Douglas County homes in Larkspur Colorado generally include rolling pasture, mature trees, fabulous views, and a convenient yet secluded location.  Prices range from the low $200,000s to about $5 million.
