Tucked among Ponderosa Pines on the edge of Colorado’s Black Forest is a uniquely-Coloradan home community, Whispering Pines. Adventure awaits Whispering Pines residents thanks to a clubhouse, resort-style amenities, and gorgeous trails winding through pine canopies.
The Shea Homes Woodlands Collection at Whispering Pines integrates craftsman-style architecture with open-concept floor plans. Two of the most popular Woodlands floor plans are, the Bristlecone, featuring 3,741 square feet and four bedrooms and the Timber Ridge, with a ranch-style floor plan and 2,725 square feet of living space. Both homes are breathtaking, but which model has the options that best suit your lifestyle?
Gourmet Kitchens Meant For Gathering
If an open-concept kitchen is on your must-have list, both the Timber Ridge and the Bristlecone will tick that box!
The Bristlecone’s kitchen features a waterfall island and double wall ovens. A walk-in pantry and an additional butler’s pantry make storage a breeze, while the optional prep sink keeps dinner duty simple. Seating at the kitchen island and a dining nook for a table makes it a spot where everyone will want to hang out, snack, and chat.

An oversized kitchen island is the showcase piece of the Timber Ridge kitchen, with hanging pendant lights, seating for six, and cabinets tucked beneath. The walk-in pantry and upper and lower cabinets allow for plenty of storage, while the modern backsplash complements the hardwood floors throughout. Which kitchen would you choose for your Sunday morning pancakes?

Dining Rooms Set for Dinner Parties
Whether you prefer a formal dining room or an open-concept great room, the Bristlecone and the Timber Ridge have options for every style.

The Bristlecone’s formal dining room is accessible from the kitchen through a butler’s pantry or from the entry through a stunning arch. Dramatic and intricate woodwork on the ceiling — and surrounding the hutch niche — add a hint of classic luxury to the room.
The Timber Ridge has a variety of floor plan flex spaces to complement your style. A formal dining room beside the kitchen and accessible from the foyer is an innovative choice, and the table nook off of the kitchen makes for an exceptional entertainment space. The optional wine bar in the dining area keeps your favorite vinos within reach during mealtime. Which dining room has you dreaming of hosting your next dinner party?

A Great Room With A View
Panoramic windows flank both the Timber Ridge and the Bristlecone’s great rooms, so no matter your choice, your view is exceptional.

The Bristlecone’s great room boasts a gas fireplace set low into the wall, creating a modern and upscale centerpiece for the room. The great room has plenty of space for any get-together or movie night, and the atmosphere benefits from convenient lighting set into the ceiling. The eating nook opens right onto the patio, seamlessly merging indoor and outdoor living.
The Timber Ridge’s great room is also centered around a large gas fireplace set into the wall, accented by luxe, stone-colored tile. The neutral palette of the great room — from the hardwood floors to the fireplace stone — creates a breathtaking background for the wall of windows looking out onto the Ponderosa Pines of Black Forest. Which great room is begging for you to kick up your feet and relax with a good book?
