Community Spotlight: Edgemont Highlands

Posted: September 20, 2021 by Jaime Suzanne Marquez

Edgemont Highlands is Durango’s premiere master planned community. Located just 5 miles northeast of historic downtown Durango, it is just far enough to climb to 7,500 feet of elevation and bring you to the tall Ponderosa Pines and Gamble Oak, but still conveniently close to town. This high-end community offers the complete package: Colorado’s great outdoors, complimented by social neighborhood events and architectural design controls. It’s the perfect balance.

A variety of homes are found in Edgemont ranging from a 2 bedroom townhouse to gorgeous custom homes at the top with spectacular views. With over 200 acres of open space there are opportunities for homesites nestled along buffer open spaces. Canyons allow for some added view opportunities; clustered, higher-density areas bring a more social atmosphere. 

The community provides a private 1.5 mile stretch of the Florida River stocked with trout for fly fishing. There are walking paths, picnic spots, swimming holes and a hanging bridge down by the river as well.  The extensive trail system with over 10 miles of maintained walking/hiking trails throughout the community is quite popular with homeowners. If you are feeling adventurous, you can connect to the Durango Trail System and even beyond to the Colorado Trail System!

If getting to know the neighbors is more your thing, plenty of social opportunities are available. Volunteering to help with the community herb garden and assisting in planning community gatherings like the summer BBQ or Halloween are just the tip of the iceberg. You can also host your own gathering in the Community Lodge which offers a full kitchen and expansive elevated deck. 

Rest assured this community is established, yet still growing. It has been successful in maintaining the value and integrity originally intended by the master developer. With professional hands-on association management, a diligent board, which includes homeowners, and well written architectural and landscaping guidelines, you’ll have peace of mind for the future of your community. 

If taking a leisurely walk through the woods, fly fishing in your private stretch of river or joining neighbors for a potluck is your thing, then Edgemont Highlands is the community for you!
