A brief history of Canyon Pines — Soon to be Arvada’s Newest Subdivision
January 19, 2024
When Terry Ten Eyck and his wife Diana purchased the land that would eventually become the Canyon Pines subdivision, they hardly imagined the 93-home development that would begin to take shape over four decades later.
Now, after a final round of annexations and rezonings were approved at the Jan. 8 Arvada City Council meeting — “a clean up effort” according to developer Chad Ellington — the furthest western subdivision in Arvada will begin to take shape, with two homes already under construction.
The Ten Eycks came to own what would become Canyon Pines through Terry’s work as a realtor; he facilitated the sale between the previous landowner, the Jewel Mountain Land Company and Doug and Nancy Stevens in 1979. The Ten Eycks then purchased the land from the Stevens family the following year.
