About The Aidan Group

The Aidan Group, a Denver, Colorado based residential development company, has been building luxury homes in and around our stunning Colorado mountain resorts and the Denver metro area since 2005. Our developments range from ski-in ski-out slope-side and riverside custom homes up to 120 semi-custom home enclaves nestled in the mountains and Front Range.

Our passion for home building is palpable because it’s all about you – the peace you feel, the warmth in your heart, and the look on your face when you are in your home. We embrace this responsibility.

Each home is meticulously designed from beginning through completion with a precise focus on lifestyle, timeless elegance, and the highest quality craftmanship. Our homes are architecturally inspired to pay tribute to the land and natural surroundings, and are planned to ensure that the wonderful blend of indoor/outdoor living offered in Colorado is enjoyed to the fullest.

While each project is unique, our commitment is always the same – we take the responsibility of building your home seriously. Years after you’ve moved in, we want to be invited back.
