Gracing a gently rolling, high-country expanse of shortgrass prairie that meets the very doorstep of the Rockies, Candelas is a nearly 1,500-acre master-planned community that has the distinction of being one of the best-selling communities in the Denver area. As the epitome of raw Western beauty, the wide-open landscape and community offer homeowners what they love most about Colorado: big skies, forever views and surrounding mountain playgrounds that take a lifetime to explore. Candelas is planned for 1,500 single-family detached homes, approximately 3,000 attached residences, as well as several million square feet of retail and commercial space.






As Arvada’s largest and most complete master-planned community, Candelas offers a multitude of amenities including five community parks, two recreation centers, nearly 14 miles of hiking and biking trails and 193 acres of open space, all surrounded by 11,500+ acres of protected public lands and an adjacent National Wildlife Refuge.



Designed for every type of homebuyer and budget, the eco-friendly homes at Candelas include everything from single-family detached homes to condominiums, townhomes and luxurious custom homes. The homes are being crafted by Colorado’s most respected homebuilders including Lennar, Richmond American Homes, Ryland Homes, Century Communities, Standard Pacific Homes, TRI Pointe Homes and Village Homes.
