At the second annual Custom Home Showcase opening today at Fox Hill a few minutes south of Parker, you’ll tour four spectacular custom homes that are easily worth the low price of admission (a benefit for SECOR Cares, a charity serving families with emergencies in Douglas, Elbert and Arapahoe Counties).
But bring the kids along for a chance to see a real working farm, pretty rolling countryside, and firefighters from Franktown’s Station 182, showing off their craft.
Somewhere among all of those attractions are the reasons why Fox Hill—a community built around a healthy farm-to-table lifestyle—has sold an astonishing $39 million in homes and sites just since the first of the year; including three more custom homes in the past two weeks.
Some buyers of those homes, from around $1.4 million, are coming from California and back east, escaping big urban centers for something that feels much less dense after the shock of the pandemic.
But others are out of Denver proper—from Stapleton and from City Park, among those most recent purchasers.
And while some are empty-nesters looking for a spacious variant of single-level living (all four homes on view are custom walkout ranches), a surprising number are younger families with kids, says Fox Hill’s Paige McLaughlin. (She and Brandy Pfalmer will show you the state-of-the-art farm that’s the core amenity of Fox Hill.)
You’ll get a chance to buy eggs, salad greens and other produce supplied by Fox Hill and other growers, and your kids can get up close to the farm’s critters—chickens, turkeys, goats and their kids, hogs—that supply the food chain here. (Each week, Fox Hill’s resident farmer Anthony Zamora provides residents with produce boxes of beets, turnips, radishes, onion, tomatoes, greens, and a dozen eggs.)
And you can talk with builders who could put you in your own custom on new sites arriving; and tour one home that’s ready for move-in at $2.995 million. You’ll find a Kona Ice truck waiting today; and a schedule of other events set for the show’s 8-week run. Tickets are $12 (kids $4) today and Saturday; $8 Thursdays and Fridays.
Builders are Camerata Homes, Craftsman Home Company, Nicholas Custom Homes, GMC Construction, Reed Custom Homes, Sheffield Homes, and Blue Sky Custom Homes. Fox Hill is off Flintwood Road south of Bayou Gulch Road, 35 minutes from the Denver Tech Center. Or visit LiveInFoxHill.com
