Life at Solterra Changes with the Seasons

It all starts with the land. A rugged hillside, surrounded by rolling hills, rock outcroppings, and mountains. Homes crafted in rough-hewn stone, exposed beams, and stucco. It’s as if the homes grew out of the land itself. The style is native. Grounded. And feels like a place you want to put your roots down. Welcome to Solterra.

Put your roots down in Lakewood

The homes at Solterra are unique. Unique in that they have been thoughtfully crafted for this community with brand new, energy-efficient designs. Unique in how they borrow from the surrounding landscape in forms, lines, and use of area-appropriate construction materials. Unique in how they take full advantage of the outdoor-friendly climate and panoramic views with covered patios, front porches, and spacious courtyards. And unique in how each home looks good next to its neighbor, different but complementary, creating a village aesthetic that’s friendly and inviting much like the homes themselves. The architecture is reminiscent of mountain villages in Tuscany, Provence and Andalusia – yet this little hillside destination is pure Colorado.
