Don't expect to spend your free time as a front porch, rocking chair potato if you invest in Bennett, Colorado real estate, which ranges from single-family fix-ups to luxury homes on rural acreages.
"On the move" is one way to describe this small rural town of about 2,300 residents just 30 miles east of Denver and 6 miles west of Strasberg on I-70. In 2009, country living on Bennett properties became more attractive as the city began developing parks, trails, a volleyball sandpit and other recreational amenities to get locals up and moving.
By two years later, The Denver Post noted that Bennett had become a "national role model" for healthy rural living. Today, the community recreation center's fitness programs include yoga, aqua zumba, adult and youth sport leagues and swim lessons.
When Bennett residents do choose to kick back and relax, one of the best spots to sit a spell is in front of the fireplace at the public library -- part of the innovative Rangeview Anythink Libraries system, which emphasizes patron comfort.
Although the community is small, the Bennett School District has four public schools, including a joint preschool/elementary/middle school facility as well as its own high school.
Due to affordability, recreational amenities and a family-friendly country lifestyle close to the Denver metro area, most Bennett homes are owner occupied.
