DC Ranch was developed on the guiding principles of connectivity and healthy living. The community centers with their recreational facilities, the plethora of activities organized for the residents, the miles of hiking trails and parks and even an intranet amongst DC Ranch owners attest to a healthy community of neighbors. Houses range from the lock and leave townhomes with a Tuscan flair, condos, luxury single family detached homes some with their own interior courtyards, to the custom mansions on the hillsides. But despite house styles, families with children enjoy the fact that Copper Ridge Elementary is within their community and children can use the trail system to visit friends without having to go on a major road.
