Genesee, where the mountains meet the city.
Genesee is a residential community that has it all. Tucked away along the I-70 corridor across from Lookout Mountain, Genesee is a very special place of natural beauty and serenity, and has won many awards for stewardship of native ecology and wildfire mitigation. It boasts the best of mountain living, providing easy access to metro Denver to the east and world-class ski areas to the west. Genesee's 883 homes have been sensitively and sensibly constructed on 2,000 acres of spectacular mountain property. Superb planning has allowed the area to develop a series of small neighborhoods that maintain a sense of community as well as privacy. Situated at over 7,500 ft. above sea level, most homes boast panoramic vistas of either downtown Denver or the majestic Mt. Evans and Continental Divide or both! Genesee is a covenant-protected community where the developed environment coexists in harmony with the area's natural setting, including the abundant native inhabitants such as deer, wild turkeys, and elk. With 1,200 acres of dedicated open space over which meander 12 miles of maintained hiking trails, Genesee offers residents the opportunity to experience the great outdoors within an easy walk from their door.
