This retirement community is so appealing that it has been listed by Where to Retire magazine as one of the 50 best master-planned communities in the United States. It is the only community on their list from the state of Colorado. If you are considering a move to the mountains after you stop working, this community should be near the top of your list.
Of course, if you are considering relocating to Colorado from another state, you may want to visit the area in the winter to get a better idea of what it is like to live in a cold snowy climate. For those of you who are used to dealing with cold weather and don't mind it, Heritage Todd Creek is a beautiful place to enjoy your later years.
Amenities at Heritage Todd Creek

With Denver only a short drive away, residents have full access to all the advantages of living near a big city, including restaurants, theaters, shopping malls, museums and entertainment. The community is also near several Colorado state parks. It only takes a few hours to drive up the mountains to the fabulous ski resorts of Breckenridge, Keystone and Vail.
Homes and Price Ranges
Compared to the senior communities in some other locales, Heritage Todd Creek is quite affordable, with home prices ranging from the low $300,000 range up to about $380,000 for single family homes. Home sizes range from 1470 to 2574 square feet with two and three car garages. The square footage does not include the full size unfinished basements, which give residents the opportunity for even more living space. The housing is quite new, as well, since less than 400 of the 1,300 homes that have been planned have been built so far. This is your opportunity to own an affordable, brand new retirement home in a spectacular location.
The monthly homeowner's dues in 2013 are $145.
