At the Base of the Majestic Rocky Mountains in North Central Colorado, the 55+ Community of Skyestone Boasts Beautiful Homes and a Pretty Locale
Broomfield is a city along the Rocky Mountain foothills in north central Colorado. It sits between the capital city of Denver and the college town of Boulder and is a prosperous, fresh place with new homes, new shopping areas and a beautiful mountain backdrop.
Skyestone is one of Broomfield's new master planned communities, and it happens to be for people lucky enough to be age 55 or better. Started by Taylor Morrison in 2014, the development will have more tham 500 single family residences. There are two single family home collections, the Landmark Collection and the Pinnacle Collection. The first has four floor plans, each with two bedrooms. The second collection also has four floor plans, each with two to three bedrooms. All properties are single level, although some have an optional basement. Every property is energy efficient and has an attached garage.
Prices start in the mid- to high-$300,000s. Please check with the community or a Realtor to verify these prices as they may change.
The Lodge is the heart of Skystone and reflects Colorado's ruggedness with its wood and stone exterior. It has a fitness center, a community kitchen, a fireplace and more. Outside, a swimming pool and nature trails await.
Broomfield has been growing very quickly, and residents, many of whom are affluent and educated, enjoy an art guild, a depot museum and a civic orchestra. The Brunner Farmhouse is both a community gathering place and the city's connection to its agricultural past. It also hosts Broomfield's summer concert series. Restaurants are plentiful, and Flatirons Crossing Mall has national retailers.
Denver's amenities include four professional sports teams, a world class art museum, eclectic restaurants, a bustling downtown, a beautiful library and a large botanic garden. Boulder is a fun place to spend a day strolling the pedestrian friendly mall, kayaking in Boulder Creek, strolling the lovely University of Colorado campus or dining at an outdoor cafe. Skiing and other mountain recreation are a short drive to the west.
The nearest accredited hospital is just five miles away in Lafayette.

Like California, the Colorado area was surrendered to the United States in 1848 at the end of the Mexican-American War. It did not become a state until 1876, 100 years after the nation's birth.
The Centennial State's geography includes high plains, deserts, foothills, and mountains. Its Rockies are part of the 3,000-plus mile geologic uplift known as the North American Cordillera. More than 50 of the Cordillera's peaks taller than 14,000 feet are in Colorado. Outdoor recreation ranges from backpacking and climbing to road cycling and skiing.
With roots in mining and agriculture, Colorado's economy has branched in many directions. It currently has a high concentration of tech and scientific research companies. Food processing, manufacturing, and tourism round out the state's industries.
The Centennial State maintains a long list of superlatives. It has the highest paved road, the deepest geothermal hot spring, and the nation's largest concentration of scenic byways. Colorado is the only state in the Union to reject the Olympics and one of the first to legalize recreational marijuana.

Is Everyone in a 55+ Community Really 55+?
Not everyone who lives in a 55+ community is age 55 or better. Generally, at least 80% of residents must be at least age 55 (and at least one occupant of each housing unit must be age 55), while the remaining 20% are allowed to be younger (but usually at least age 45). Children are allowed to visit but generally cannot stay more than two weeks at a time. It is also usually the case that older, more established 55+ communities have an older residential demographic.
