Unlike many new housing developments,Stapleton new homes have been designed to be part of a community, a neighborhood containing all the necessities. If you purchase a home in this community, you won't have to drive halfway across Denver to find the groceries or shopping or even the entertainment you are looking for. It was purposely built with a philosophy that is people oriented instead of car oriented. "In fact, everything you need is just a short walk or bike ride away in Stapleton. Not a new idea, but a really good one. . . much like what you find in small towns and urban boroughs throughout the world. Stapleton has become a refreshing alternative to the suburban model . a place where all kinds of homes and all kinds of people exist happily, synergistically, together." (www.stapletondenver.com)
This community also boasts of award winning schools with a progressive type education system which is offered to children. There is also the Denver School of Science and Technology which prepares its students for the workforce by requiring an internship period from juniors and seniors. Owners of new homes in Denver with small children will have no trouble finding early childcare/daycare centers and, if need be, even a specialty school for vision impaired kids.

Parks and green areas are another plus for this city to which you will have easy access. Stapleton boasts that "No matter where you are in Stapleton, you're never more than five minutes from a beautiful, green open space -- a Stapleton park. In most cases, there is a park in your backyard." (www.stapletondenver.com)
Not everyone can afford to have a pool in their backyard and this city provides 3 neighborhood (public) pools, which are strategically situated, in order to serve different neighborhoods, simultaneously.
As if all of this weren't enough, your Denver new home will be located 10 minutes from downtown, 20 minutes from Denver International Airport and 30 minutes from the Rockies.
