Entrance sign to the Firelight neighborhood of Highlands Ranch, 80126

Firelight is located within the Southridge region of Highlands Ranch, sprawling from Poston Parkway all the way east to Laurelglen Lane along the southern edges of Wildcat Reserve Parkway and McArthur Ranch Road. Subdivisions neighboring Firelight include The Hearth to the east and Kentley Hills and Lantern Hill to the north. With some 1,500 homes ranging from 1,400 to 5,000 square feet, it’s safe to say that any buyer looking to live in the area should consider looking at the homes Firelight has to offer.

On the northern end of the neighborhood, at the intersection Wildcat Reserve and Flagstaff Way, more affordable homes are found on the streets of Pearlwood Circle, Wood Briar Drive, and Westgate Avenue, to name a few. The majority of these houses were constructed by Berkeley in the early 2000s and sit on roughly 0.1 acres. These homes start at about 1,400 above grade square feet and can be found in both ranch and two-story styles. Many of the neighborhood’s rental properties are also located in this area, although Firelight’s homes are primarily owner occupied.

As roads lead to the eastern end of Firelight (near Grigs), many Shea-built houses (and a few Ryland homes) from the early 2000s grow larger on the streets of Cedar Brook Lane, Windridge Circle, and Craftsbury Drive. These homes tend to range from 2,500 to 3,200 square feet and are predominantly of the two-story style. Lot size also bumps up to around 0.15 acres.

The southwestern-most end across Poston Parkway is home to the neighborhood’s biggest houses in what is known as the Finisterra at Firelight luxury subdivision. Builders such as Beazer and Joyce homes have populated the streets of Danbury Avenue, Southshire Road, and Stonington Street with roughly 300 homes built in the mid 2000s. The 3,500 to 5,000 square foot homes in Finisterra, and many others south of Poston Parkway, sit upon lots ranging from 0.2 to 0.3 acres and are faced with stucco siding and stone accents. Many of these houses also feature cylindrically-shaped sections coming to a cone roof, adding to the stately appeal of these beautiful homes.

With so many homes in Firelight, it’s no surprise that the subdivision is surrounded by schools.  To the east, Rock Canyon High School and Rocky Heights Middle School can be found on the corner of McArthur Ranch Road and Monarch Boulevard. On the western edge of the neighborhood, Mountain Vista High School and Mountain Ridge Middle School are a short drive down Wildcat Reserve Parkway off Summit View Parkway. These schools can also be reached via the Dad Clark Trail, just west of Red-tail Park, one of Firelight’s many parks. Two elementary schools close by are Copper Mesa and Wildcat Mountain. Copper Mesa is located in the center of Firelight on Windridge Circle and Wildcat Mountain is off Quebec in the Wildcat Ridge subdivision.

Spearwood Park and Paintbrush Park are two parks kids can enjoy at Firelight in addition to Red-tail Park. Paintbrush Park is just east of Southridge Recreation Center on the corner of McArthur Ranch Road and Valleybrook Drive. Parents and kids should have no problem finding something to do with all the amenities in close vicinity, including a pool, tennis courts, baseball diamond, and playground equipment.  Spearwood Park is located within Firelight on Spearwood Drive for those looking for a quick park visit closer to home. Spearwood Park has a playground and field that are connected to many of Firelight’s side streets via a long, winding concrete path that is perfect for dog walkers and joggers.
