One of the most prominent enclaves in The Divide is Kensington Green. There are 57 homes, of quaint European countryside design, patterned after England's Cotswolds reagion. The homes in the Divde are nestled throughout the one-of-a-kind 10 hole, par 3 Short Course.
With its location at the edge of Cordillera's high alpine plateau, Kensington Green clearly takes advantage of mountain, golf course and Vail Valley views. Surrounded by The Short Course, a 10-hole, par 3, Dave Pelz/John Exley designed golf course, Kensington Green features a neighborhood concept that you simply will not find elsewhere in Colorado. Crabapple orchards, window boxes, stone walls, country bridges and ponds capture the feeling of a small countryside village across the Atlantic, while the dramatic mountains and sage covered plateau remind you that you are home in Colorado. Designed to highlight the architectural influences of the old world, the exteriors of the homes feature stucco and stone. A variety of thoughtfully composed floor plans give homeowners a number of options toward creating just the right feel.
It is an intimate neighborhood, one which captures the essence of countryside living. With design concepts that are reminiscent of old world cottages, foot paths that meander through the village and the area's simple beauty.
The Short Course and other Amenities:
As one of three exceptional golf courses within the Cordillera community, The Short Course, which encircles Kensington Green, is truly unique. A collaborative effort between Cordillera, PGA tour professionals, noted designers and Dave Pelz, the most respected short course instructor in the game, The Short Course is being created as a 10-hole, par 3, instructional and practice facility.
Ideal for strengthening short game play and strategy, the course is sophisticated enough for the serious player and occasional player alike.
Homeowners who become members of The Club at Cordillera will enjoy a mountain golf experience which is unequaled in America. In addition to golf course living, residents of Kensington Green can enjoy a wealth of amenities such as The Lodge and Spa at Cordillera, an award winning lodge, restaurant and wellness center. The Trailhead, a 10-acre, four-season recreational sight, is the ideal gathering place for creating family memories, while a network of cross-country skiing and hiking trails invite you to explore Cordillera's vast open space.
