    Jeanette Wages, The Wells Group of Durango, Inc., 970-375-7020, jwages@frontier.net, http://jeanettewages.com/: MOUNTAIN TOP VIEWS! Yet only minutes from downtown shops and restaurants. Build your dream home at the top of Edgemont Highlands which offers Colorado elegant mountain living with a distinct feeling of privacy; the subdivision has almost 40% open space. Comprising over 500 acres, the varied and forested terrain imparts both a sense of quiet sanctuary and an ongoing invitation to step outside and share in the natural wonder. The property features a gently sloping lower portion, rocky outcroppings, mature tall Ponderosas that cover the entire lot but not too thick and allows the sun to shine through. There is varied and rich terrain with extensive stands of gambel oak and other native plants. The amenities within Edgemont Highlands promote interaction with, enjoyment of and preservation of the community's natural features. With over 200 acres of dedicated open space, the community's extensive trail system is the primary amenity and each home enjoys easy access to these trails. Edgemont Highlands has an extensive trail system. Walking paths are defined with small log borders and a wood-chip surface. Behind this lot is the more rugged trails that are rough cut with a natural dirt surface, similar to National Forest trails, and provide access to the undisturbed areas of the property. Property owners and their guests also have access to a mile and a half of Florida River for hiking and fly-fishing. This beautiful stretch of river offers many opportunities for quiet early morning strolls, exciting fly fishing or the solitude of running water. The Community Lodge serves as a gathering place for exclusive use by the Edgemont Highlands community. It includes an enclosed mailroom, large meeting room with floor to ceiling windows and a large rock fireplace, two offices, kitchen and restrooms. Patios and demonstration gardens offer examples of our xeric landscaping guidelines, as well as provide an outdoor location for summertime functions. The Lodge provides an opportunity for the community to meet as a group or to host private functions in a warm and inviting atmosphere. The inclusion of public art is an important feature of Edgemont Highlands. Working with the visionary ideas of Creative Conspiracy, local sculptor Dave Claussen created our giant pinecone and oak leaves at our entries. Environmental artist Mary Ellen Long has completed numerous installations along the trail system. These pieces all add a richness and unique character to the community. In addition, Edgemont Highlands is served by the Edgemont Ranch Metropolitan District; the ERMD provides water and sewer services as well as maintaining the roads and plowing snow. One benefit to being a property owner in Edgemont Highlands is that there are no water and sewer tap fees. natural gas, phone, electric and cable are stubbed underground to each lot line.
