First House in Highlands Ranch:

Then -  The first homes were built starting in 1981 and sold by Mission Viejo in what is now the subdivisions just to the north and south of Northridge Park and Recreation Center. The first official homeowner in Highlands Ranch was the Scott Family. Their house closed on September 28, 1981 for $90,900.


Now - Still lovely today, the first house is surrounded by large mature trees and a lush green landscape, quite a change from the stark and barren lot it was 40 years ago.
