Hi,
I am looking to relocate from Northern Idaho due to the lack of sun here.
How is Castle Rocks weather in the winter? and how long does it stay cold?

Castle Rock weather is similar to most other areas in the Denver Metro Area. The elevation is a little higher than Denver so it may be a couple degrees cooler and we get a little more snow than downtown Denver. Approximately 300 days of sun per year, the last snow fall is typically in May and the first measurable snow fall is usually in October. March & April are typically the months with the most snow approximately 9 inches on average in March, most other winter months average about 5 inches. It is common to see temperatures in the 40's throughout the winter with occasional warm and cold spells with higher or lower temperatures. During the day the sun makes if feel warmer than it actually is, but temperatures do drop off quite a bit after dark, so be prepared if you are going to be out late.

Caste Rock is a nice area. What are you looking for in terms of neighborhood and housing? Perhaps I can offer some suggestions.

Thank you so much for the information.
We are looking for an area that is mainly new homes with nice shopping centers.
That of course is safe as well.

Do you know if there is any Bass fishing in the area?

I'm not sure about Bass fishing as I am not much of a fisherman. Castle Rock has experienced a considerable amount of growth in the past 4 years that I have lived in the area. Most of the new shopping centers have been located off of Founders parkway towards the north end of town and near Castlewood Ranch located east of town. The entire area is quite safe.

When you say new homes are you thinking of buying a brand new house or are you thinking newer (built in the past 5 years)? Several communities with brand new homes would be The Meadows, Castlewood Ranch and Chrystal Valley Ranch. All of these subdivisions have new homes starting in the high $200k range. If you looking for something with more acreage you may want to consider Castle Wood Estates, Bell Mountain Ranch and Painter's Ridge. Expect to pay at least $600k for these areas. Let me know if I can offer additional assistance.

AJY,

Coming from Idaho you may also want to consider the Perry Park area of Larkspur. It is only 5 or 10 minutes south of Castle Rock and it has the pine trees and mountain feel that is hard to find in Castle Rock. I would specifically look at Sage Port, Sterling Pointe & Perry Park East if you need to commute north on a daily basis. If you do not need to commute every day you should look at Perry Park Ranch. If you are looking in Larkspur you should plan to spend at least $500k for a newer home and over $600k if you want new. Use MSN.com to search for "Larkspur CO Real Estate" to learn a little more about the area. Good Luck!

I can't specifically answer you question as I have no experience with Castle Rock. However, snow here is sporadic; one area may get 10" and someplace a few miles away may only get 2", for example. I don't know if CR is especially windy; Boulder is.

Castle Rock is a slightly higher elevation compared to Denver and most suburbs so it will often get a little more snow, but it is not significant. Parts of Castle Rock are very windy, but the Meadows is not one of them. Bell Mountain Ranch, Diamond Ridge and parts of Castle Wood get the most wind. These are all areas at the top of a hill with little or no natural wind breaks. Even in these ares I would not let the wind be a deterrent, Castle Rock is a great area.
