Why the best parties happen at BackCountry.

by | December 9th, 2015

Some might say BackCountry’s festive streak is simply a function of the fun, friendly people who tend to move there. Or the very active HOA that’s always cooking up special events to help neighbors get to know each other. All true, but there’s another factor involved: BackCountry offers perfect places for entertaining, both at the Sundial House and in residents’ own homes.

The Sundial House is an award-winning gathering place where residents not only meet for community events, but can host private parties. Several venues provide superb backdrops for gatherings large and small. In more temperate months, cocktails around the courtyard fire pit, looking out over thousands of acres of wilderness, makes for a pretty memorable get-together. You could also host a Broncos watch party at Pikes Pub and Lounge or a lively, interactive dinner party in the demonstration kitchen and dining room. The community room is large enough for a wedding, but with intimate conversation areas perfect for smaller gatherings. (Residents, find more information about reserving the Sundial House at www.backcountrylife.org or contact John Lyon at 303-346-2800 or jlyon@ccmcnet.com.)

That said, BackCountry homeowners have some amazing places to entertain right in their own homes. Visit any of the model homes and you may find yourself dreaming up the guest list for your housewarming party. Every Shea home is designed for great entertaining, both indoors and out, since the great outdoors is so breathtaking in BackCountry.

Within the Shadow Walk Collectionthe Somerset plan is made for entertaining. Guests can easily mingle in thoughtfully connected spaces, such as the formal dining room, morning room, great room, and this kitchen, with a rounded island and breakfast bar.

Once the party gets going, everyone will find themselves gravitating toward this gourmet kitchen, where the spacious morning room easily seats eight and extends out into a covered outdoor dining terrace. The formal dining room and butler’s pantry complete the space, which is perfect for your more traditional holiday gatherings.

Kitchen and morning room

Also within the Water Dance Collection, the Solstice model offers a special twist for get-togethers. A spacious hearth room connects to the great room, kitchen, and dining area. With a dramatic fireplace as its focal point, the hearth room is an inviting place to break off from the crowd for an intimate conversation.

Just outside your door

BackCountry was “years in the planning, and centuries in the execution.” Once you see just how different this neighborhood is from any other, you’ll most likely agree.

Corridors of open space draw nature into the neighborhood so that you and your family can step outside to relax, clamber across a waterway, or explore rustic trails. Follow one of the many winding trails that will lead out past the Sundial House – private lodge and pool, past the neighborhood’s edge, and you will enter the astonishing South Rim where a private enclave of 467 wild acres is set aside for you to enjoy as a BackCountry resident. Here, the traffic, the meetings, and the endless buzz of the modern world are forgotten as you marvel at how quiet and naturally beautiful life can be. Follow the trails even farther, and you’ll soon arrive at the awe-inspiring Backcountry Wilderness Area** where adventure and discovery await.

Explore the Water Dance Collection for the first time, or visit again to view these extraordinary model homes and homesites. BackCountry is located at Broadway and Wildcat Reserve Parkway in Highlands Ranch. For additional information call 720-344-2900, or visit www.SheaHomes.com/BC5010.
