Ken Caryl Real Estate & Community Information

Featuring luxury single-family homes built over the last nineteen years, Ken Caryl is an enclave of neighborhoods and amenities located off of C-470 in the foothills west of Denver. A hog back splits the neighborhoods of Ken Caryl Ranch and Ken Caryl Valley. Residential real estate options vary by the neighborhood. In the North Ranch and Manor Ridge, home prices range from $700,000 to $1.5 million. The average price for a condominium is $160,495 and the average price for a single-family home is $418,640.

Located entirely within Jefferson County, Ken Caryl is adjacent to the cities of Lakewood, Littleton and Morrison. Once known for agriculture and mining, present day Jefferson County is a mix of suburban, residential, business and industrial forces. Somewhat removed from the epicenter, a large number of residents commute to work outside of the area. Lockheed Martin Space Systems, a division of Lockheed Martin, operates in the Ken Caryl Valley.

Open space and parks and trails wind through the neighborhoods, and it's not uncommon for residents to experience close interactions with wildlife, including elk and various birds. Nearby, Chatfield State Park features miles of trails, a reservoir for water enthusiasts, fishing and four campgrounds. The Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield, a nature preserve set among grasslands, ponds and cottonwood banks of Deer Creek, features numerous annual family-friendly events, and a summer concert series. Roxborough State Park (known for its distinct red rock formations) and Waterton Canyon Recreation Area are also just a short drive for residents.

The Ken-Caryl Ranch Community Center and the Ranch House Recreation Center provide numerous activities and programs and classes for all ages. The Ken-Caryl Ranch Equestrian Center is a destination for horse lovers. The center leads riders to more than 4,000 acres of native Colorado open space and 25 miles of trails. Boarding, lessons and a day camp are some of the services available to resident patrons. And there's no shortage of golf courses in the area, as more than 20 public and private courses are found in Jefferson County.

Ken Caryl neighborhoods are governed by the Ken-Caryl Ranch Master Association (oversees and enforces community covenants) and the Ken-Caryl Ranch Metropolitan District (maintains environmental landscapes and provides recreational amenities). Residents are involved in all aspects of community life, and participate in specially designated groups, including the Parent Network, Historical Committee and the "Neighbor to Neighbor" connection, among others. Specialty services, retail and grocery stores, and restaurants are close by at the Ken Caryl Business Center.

One of the community's best known attractions is the Manor House, an American Georgian - Southern Style mansion built in 1914 by John Shaffer (who operated a working cattle ranch in the area where Ken Caryl Ranch is located) for the sum of $100,000. The Manor House entertained frequent guests such as Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William Howard Taft, as well as industrial chieftains from around the world. Today, the Manor House is sought after for a variety of events - from weddings to private parties - and hosts numerous community events.
