When moving to a newer suburb like Highlands Ranch, one thing you may feel like you wish there was more of is history. With such a newer community there is a lack of historical properties for people to appreciate and visit. But this is not the case with the Mansion Hills neighborhood in Highlands Ranch.
Mansion Hills is a neighborhood in the Southridge area of Highlands Ranch that consists of about 70 homes. However, the remarkable feature of this neighborhood is that it houses the historic Highlands Ranch Mansion, for which the neighborhood gets its name.
The Highlands Ranch Mansion more than 120 years old. It is open to the community for tours and can be rented for private events like weddings. It has a rich history as one of the first dwellings built in the area, initially homesteaded by S. Allen Long, a retired Ohio senator. It has been owned by many notable families over the years, each one playing a prominent role in a number of fields. According to the Mansion website,
“while their chosen vocations included such variety as banking, oil, law, politics, ranching, or farming, each household head shared a common place as a leader in his field, a position established prior to the time spent here at the Mansion.”
The sprawling mansion includes two ballrooms, two kitchens, a dining room, a library, a card room, 5 fireplaces, and more. Living in Mansion Hills, you get to be close to this rare and beautiful piece of history. On top of that, you are close to great schools and each of the homes in this neighborhood are high-end luxury homes.
