Pradera: Paradise Among The Prairies
Perfection belongs to a community along the quintessential prairies of Colorado, known as “Pradera,”, where the wind blows east to west swirling across the edges of the valleys between Parker and Castle Rock, in Douglas County. A landscape where residents celebrate Pradera’s majestic, and rolling, green and yellow hills, surrounded by a vast 1500+ acres of undeveloped open space. Sprinkled with lavish estates, nestled in pockets of vegetative serenity, Pradera’s homes are hand-crafted by carefully selected and distinguished home-builders. Stone, brick, wood and elegance comprise the basic ingredients of this spacious rural neighborhood, both inside and outside every home.
Pradera is a collection of extraordinary residences, equipped with access to an unparalleled community clubhouse and pool, as well as golf and tennis lessons for all ages. Private, unpretentious and seasonally recreational, Pradera is a prairie paradise above all others in Colorado. Many residents are working and have families, while others are retired and living out their golden years in Pradera’s splendor. A Mile-High mecca of prairieland, golf, wildlife and still within 30-45 minute drive of Denver, Pradera is your home away from work, the home you may choose to work from, or the home you’ll never want to leave.

“Pradera’s sense of community is by far the most influential on our decision to buy here.” says one retired N.A.S.A. scientist & resident, “Everyone takes the time to get to know everyone, respect one another, look out for one another like an extension of the family. That really resonated during our search for a final home.”
Pradera is more than just rustic, rural living within reach of the modern conveniences of city life, Pradera is a unique community with a sense of self and pride that spans the winds of the prairies it resides within.
