Last chance for an amenity-wrapped neighborhood near Aurora Reservoir

The first sign the market had turned at Beacon Point — Lennar’s homes with standard 3-car garages on the south shore of Aurora Reservoir — was when the amenity-wrapped neighborhood began luring high numbers of buyers from out of state. “Families coming into Colorado do the best research on schools, trails and other attractions, and they’re often the first to turn up a value,” says Lennar’s Carrie Kayl Castilian, who counts 28 homes that have sold at Beacon Point since December.

That leaves only 14 remaining chances to be here, walking distance from Beacon Point’s private lakeside pool and rec center (owners currently pay less than $50 a month for the amenities); and almost as close to Aurora’s public beach beside the lake, crossed by an eight-mile trail that wraps its shoreline. Those chances include a number of homes Lennar has underway for earlier delivery – including two that can be ready for April move-in, one of them a ranch plan.
