Explore Neighborhoods

Mesa County is located in the Grand Valley on the Western Slope of Colorado and when it comes to the style of homes, we have a little bit of everything: Adobe Architecture, Historic Bungalows, New Construction Ranches overlooking the Colorado Monument, Cabins Off-the-Grid, Cottages with Solar Panels, Farm Land, Energy Star Rated Townhomes, even Condos.  Every community offers something unique, but the common thread in the towns on the Western Slope is access to amazing landscapes and plenty of outdoor adventures without the crowds of the Front Range. This is a place where people wave and smile to strangers! We love our town and all the communities that make it unique – and would love to share some of their character with you.
