South Denver Metro Real Estate


Stonegate is one of Parker’s best neighborhoods for many reasons. Parker is a relatively newer area really only seeing major growth in the last 10 to 15 years. Stonegate real estate is one of the earliest planned neighborhoods for Parker that was started in the mid 1980’s and still not completed. There is a section on the north and south side of Lincoln Avenue.

There are three major reasons buyers like Stonegate real estate.

1. Location and ease of access to all major roads. Stonegate is approximately 20 miles to downtown making for a pretty easy commute. Stonegate is 3 miles east of I-25 and less than one mile to the E-470 toll road.

2. Award winning schools right in the neighborhood. Pine Grove Elementary school is located in the middle of the south section of Stonegate which makes it very easy for kids and parents to walk to school. Pine Grove is rated as “Excellent” for it’s student achievement and teachers.

3. Amenities! Open space, bike paths, parks, pools and tennis. Stonegate has two large pool areas. On the north side Stonegate has what is referred to by the kids as the “bucket pool” which is a zero depth entry pool for kids and adults. On the south side is the swim team pool with an additional pool for diving and slides. There is also a kiddie pool on the south Stonegate pool area. Take your choice as they are both fun! Tennis courts are lighted and ready to play. Open space, parks and playgrounds are located throughout Stonegate for family fun and get togethers. My favorite is the bike path whcih runs throughout the neighborhood and connectes with the Chery Creek Bike Trail. You can ride from Stonegate to downtown on the bike path!
