Boulder Neighborhoods 104

Boulder Neighborhoods 104 (don’t forget to check out my previous blog; Boulder Neighborhoods 101-103)

Rock Creek community masterplanned and embracing homes built for the most part by Richmond. There are also a few gated communities and custom homes within. Rock Creek is located bordering the Flatiron Crossing Mall. Right across the highway from Louisville and very easy access to the Boulder/Denver Turnpike (Highway 36).

Good value and a large selection of newer homes in a wide bandwidth of prices. 594 acres of parks, greenspace and open space. There are free community pools, parks with playgrounds, baseball, soccer and football fields. Miles of groomed paths, ponds, greenways, pocket parks and great schools in the area. Great shopping is abundant and nearby.

Schools in the area are Eldorado Elementary/Middle and Superior Elementary.

The little town of Louisville has been voted for many years by Money Magazine and Fortune to be the quintessential best little town in America in which to reside. Only ten minutes from Boulder and twenty minutes from Denver the options are wide open and the commute is non-existent. The views and paths for bike riding, walking and running are numerous. Surrounded and intermingled with 1,700 acres of open space. The music festival located on Main St. in the downtown pavilion is world class. The town has a history of great little restaurants dotting the Main St area as well. The farmers market is second to none and homes are still pretty reasonably priced whilst holding value. Quality of life is what it’s all about in Louisville.

Schools in the area are Louisville Elementary and Louisville Middle School.

Lafayette is located just north of Highway 36. Waneka Lake, Indian Peaks Golf Course Community; just a few of the neighborhoods within Lafayette.  Lafayette is and interesting mix of old and new. It doesn’t have a clear focus of which direction it wants to go. There are homes available in a very wide range of price. Great views, trails and the Bob L. Burger Recreation Center that sits on 14 acre City Park. Ease of access to the Boulder/Denver Turnpike.

Schools in the area are Alicia Sanchez Elementary and Angevine Middle School. Also Peak to Peak Charter School

Broomfield is located further east and a little south of Lafayette and east of Louisville along the Highway 36 Boulder/Denver Turnpike Corridor.  A scenic trail connects the Stearns Lake and the Josh’s Pond on the west side of town. Broomfield doesn’t really have a clear cut city center. Broomfield is home to some of the cutting edge leaders of high tech. Broomfield abounds in trails, parks and it is home to some of the best youth sports programs in the area. The suburbs can be in the older areas or newer such as the Broadlands. Homes are available in a wide array of price.

Schools in the area are Aspen Creek Elementary/Middle and Legacy High School
