West Woods Ranch is located in the affluent 80007 zip code of west Arvada, Colorado.It is between 64th and 72nd Avenues, and mostly west of Quaker. There’s easy access to Interstate 70 (Colorado’s main east-west route), and someday C-470 (Denver’s bypass route, still missing the last leg after about 20 years).
People like West Woods Ranch because the western location affords a proximity to a more ‘country’ setting, rather than that ‘lost in suburbia’ feeling. It’s an easy drive to the foothills and mountains (although watch your speed, as I found out while ‘touring’ with a friend in their new car!).
West Woods Ranch contains seventeen smaller communities, which are served by three homeowners associations*. Residents enjoy both mountain and city (Denver) views, trails, West Woods Golf Course, and the proliferation of new amenities such as the YMCA, restaurants, and shopping.
West Woods Golf Club lavishes views of both the mountains and the city of Denver on its players, and Ralston Creek runs through it. The club house has a popular restaurant with outdoor patio. There’s also a pro shop and practice facilities. My hubby has golfed there several times, and here’s what he has to say:
“Westwood’s Golf Course has 27 holes, the most pleasant to golf is Cottonwood (9-18), and the most challenging is Silo (19-27) with the fifth hole having a severely, uphill fairway. Sleeping Indian is the first 9 holes and it too has an uphill fairway on the fifth hole. There is a large putting green and two chipping greens. Views from any number of locations are amazing. Pro shop and restaurant are fully equipped and the food is very good. Special events can be scheduled.”
The average income for West Woods households with children is $98,069, which is in the 91st percentile for Colorado.
*In Colorado, home buyers have the right to inspect HOA documents and financial records, and can terminate a contract to buy based on what they find, at their sole discretion.
