Is Stepping Stone right for you? Three questions to ask yourself.

by Shea Homes Colorado on November 30, 2015


No man is an island, they say, and neither is a home. It’s critical that your “perfect home” be in a community that’s equally in sync with your tastes and lifestyle. Because after all, you do have to go outside sometime.

If you’re thinking about Stepping Stone for your future home, ask yourself these three questions. They’ll help clarify what’s unique about the community and if it’s right for you.

1. Do you like a small-town feel?
Even if you work in downtown Denver, you aren’t destined to a frantic, urban lifestyle. When your day is done, ease on down to Parker, with its friendly, authentic, small-town vibe. Far from an upstart suburb, this place dates back to 1863, when it was the Pine Grove mail stop. Plenty of historic charm remains, seen in Mainstreet buildings such as a 1912 chapel and 1908 hotel converted to a favorite coffee shop. Mainstreet is the heart of this town, where residents come together for the cool boutiques and restaurants (often locally owned)  and a year-round roster of community events, such as concerts and holiday gatherings centered around the Victorian-detailed gazebo in O’Brien Park. Get all the small-town ambiance you want—along with fast access to I-25, giving you a straight shot into downtown, the Denver Tech Center, or the Lincoln light rail station.

2. Want to know your neighbors?
Like anyone else, hermits are welcome to live in Stepping Stone—but they sure will miss out on a lot of fun. Stepping Stone residents are quick to tell you how warm and welcoming people are here. Amenities such as the Lantern House clubhouse & pool, extensive trails, and creative parks promote easy, frequent connections between residents. And an active HOA is always cooking up community-wide events, such as Dive-In movies, a Fall Pumpkin Patch and other holiday events, such as the Red, White and Blue Festival for Independence Day and Visits with Santa. As Kimberly Aiken, Stepping Stone’s community manager says, “Our buyers tend to be very community-minded, so we already have a spirit of inclusiveness here.”

3. Do you like variety in homes—and people?
Stepping Stone attracts a mix of residents. The community is home to many young, first-time buyers, attracted by the well-priced homes and modern home styles. Families with growing children take advantage of the parks, competitive-sized pool, and nearby schools. And empty nesters are eager for the convenience of Stepping Stone’s new ranch-style homes in the Watercolor Collection.  Stepping Stone homebuyers enjoy a variety that keeps streetscapes as interesting as the people who live there. Shea Homes also offers the SPACES Discovery Collection of homes with base prices from the mid $300s to the upper $400s.

So now that you’ve mulled over the possibility of living in Parker at Stepping Stone, maybe it’s time for a visit. Seeing the place—with its small-town vibe, strong sense of community, and variety of homes and residents—is the best way to definitively answer these questions, and any others you still have.
