My wife and I are exploring neighborhoods for a potential relocation, and we found a house out near Chatfield Lake in a newly developed neighborhood. We're already working with a realtor, but we'd really appreciate input from this board.

The schools are Douglas County. There is a lot of undeveloped area there, so I suspect it will become congested later down the road, but what suburbs aren't after a while.

We've already settled on the south suburbs (Parker, Lone Tree, Highlands Ranch, etc.), so that general area is what we like.

Any advice/comments/suggestions?

You have selected a very nice area. One item controlling growth in the area west of Chatfield is limited water supplies and the high cost of water for existing customers.

I have friends that live in TrailMark, which is just west of Chatfield, and they love it. I don't remember who owns the land around Trailmark, but they said that it's set aside as open space, and that the land around there will not be developed. I would imagine that some of the other developments that direction similarly back up to that space. You also have the Denver Botanic Gardens owning a large piece of land there as well that likely will not be developed.

Looking at trailmark as well. I see taxes are high there. Is water a problem there? Worse than say Castle Rock?
