Edgemont Highlands - Durango’s Premiere Master Planned Community


Posted: July 13, 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 7500 feet of elevation and bring you to the tall Ponderosa Pines and Gamble Oak, yet conveniently close to town. 

This high-end community offers a complete package of the Colorado outdoors, complimented by social neighborhood events and architectural design controls.  It’s the perfect balance...and at about 17 years old it is just now nearing lot sellout in the final phases. 

A variety of homes are found in Edgemont ranging from a 2 bedroom townhome 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 and clustered higher density areas bring a more social atmosphere. 

Enjoy 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.  Also quite popular among homeowners is the extensive trail system with over 10 miles of maintained walking/hiking trails throughout the community and if you are feeling adventurous you can connect to the Durango Trail System and even beyond to the Colorado Trail System!  There is definitely something for everyone!

If getting to know the neighbors is more your thing, volunteer to help with the community herb garden, assist in planning community gatherings like the summer BBQ or Halloween, or even host your own party in the Community Lodge complete with full kitchen and expansive elevated deck.  Rest assured this community is established yet still building out and has been successful in maintaining the value and integrity originally intended by the master developer. 

With professional hands-on association management, a diligent Board including homeowners and well written Architectural and Landscaping Guidelines...you’ll have peace of mind for the future of your community.  If taking in 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 might be the community for you.
