Living in Harmony, Rooted in Nature
The Home You’ve Been Seeking
About Sterling Ranch
With its rolling terrain and spectacular views of majestic mountains and sweeping foothills, Sterling Ranch is the home you’ve been seeking for the next chapter of your life. Vitalized by state-of-the-art technologies and a mindful approach to sustainable resources, this mixed-use, master-planned community is unlike any other.
We’ve set aside nearly one-third of this 3,400-acre swath of inspiring land for one of the most luxurious amenities of all — open space. Our residents love the 30 miles of interconnected trails that traverse this lovely valley, all framed by an awe-inspiring Rocky Mountain backdrop.
A Wonderful Home To Many
Once completed, more than 30,000 Coloradans will call Sterling Ranch home. The community will comprise approximately 12,000 homes, dotting across nine unique villages radiating outward from an amenity-rich town center and grand civic gathering place — the Sterling Center.
We’ve developed Sterling Ranch with an unwavering dedication towards an elevated yet authentic and responsible style of living. Our residents are thrilled to be part of a sustainable, forward-thinking community — savoring the memories they create in their masterfully built homes while relishing unsurpassed views and lifelong connections forged with others.
Meet the Founders
Harold and Diane Smethills, both multi-generation Colorado natives, were inspired to bring Sterling Ranch to life as a legacy project for present and future generations to enjoy. With their extensive experience in real estate and business, these two are no strangers to innovation. They were blessed to acquire a location that truly embodies what it means to live in Colorado, and with that, their vision of a twenty-first-century community was born.
Today, Harold and Diane remain active in the day-to-day operations at Sterling Ranch, alongside their son, Brock. With real estate in his blood and an engineering background, Brock is well suited to sustain the community vision and lead Sterling Ranch’s development well into the future.
“When we first set foot on this land we felt a deep connection to something greater than ourselves. Something that roots us to a sense of freedom… nature… adventure. We knew it had to be preserved. As westerners at heart, we felt a sense of gratitude for this land, and rather than seeing what we could take from it, we took a moment — and over a decade of intentional planning — to see what the land would give to us… to see how we could live in harmony with the nature that surrounds us here. We chose to carefully integrate homes, lifestyle, walking, safety, sustainability and forward-thinking technology within our treasured natural surroundings for a complete experience of our beautiful state of Colorado.”
Our values inform our thoughts, words, and actions and guide us as we build incredible homes for our residents.
We are pioneering best practices in land planning, water, and energy sustainability while leveraging state-of-the-art technology and resources . . . all so future generations can enjoy the same outstanding scenery and quality of life that we do today.
The variety of state-of-the-art tech solutions available in all Sterling Ranch homes — and throughout the community — power our lifestyle and sustainability efforts and prepare us well for whatever the future will bring.
