An 1,800-home, partially age-restricted community called Inspiration Colorado will be built in northeast Douglas County, with Pennslyvania-based Toll Brothers and California-based Standard Pacific Homes announced as the first two builders.

Inspiration Colorado will be a master-planned community located near the Gartrell Road interchange of E-470. More builders will be announced throughout 2015, and a grand opening of the community is planned this fall.

Connecticut-based Wheelock Communities and Broomfield-based Oread Capital purchased the partially developed property, totaling 1,036 acres, last month.

Portions of the community will be age-restricted, with homes sold only to those age 55 and over. Toll Brothers will build these homes, in a neighborhood called Hilltop at Inspiration. The ranch-style homes will range in price from the mid-$300,000s to the $800,000s, and sales will commence in the fall.

"Colorado is becoming a top choice for those seeking new homes in age-restricted, resort-style communities, and Toll Brothers is please to continue to help meet this demand," said Mark Bailey, division president for Toll Brothers.

Standard Pacific Homes will build ranch-style homes in the development's Vistas neighborhood with prices starting in the mid-$300,000s.
