Arvada New Homes - Whisper Creek, Spring Mesa, More - 07/29/09 11:27 AM
Once again, there's new homes for sale in Arvada Colorado. Arvada doesn't have much available land, so most of the new neighborhoods are small - some consisting of a single street. There is one large community going in, for those who have no qualms about living near where the Rocky Flats nuclear plant used to be (now Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge. Not long ago, Arvada's western border consisted of 'country' - family farms and such. Well, the farms and grasslands are disappearing under the builder's bulldozers. I am of the opinion that the slowdown in building helped Arvada begin to (3 comments)
Arvada Neighborhoods - Meadowglen - Between Denver and Boulder - 07/28/09 12:26 PM
Meadowglen is snuggled up against Pomona Lake to the south, and 88th Ave. to the north, with Club Crest and Pomona on its west and east border. That puts it at Arvada's northern border, about in the east-west center. People like Meadowglen because of the lake, tennis courts, community pool, and heavily-treed, winding streets. Meadowglen has the feel of an out-of-the-way neighborhood, but it's near grocery stores, trails, a national wildlife refuge, bus route, bike paths, and several parks. There is a homeowner's association, which keeps the community areas pristine and enforces the bylaws. One of the negatives about life in (0 comments)
Arvada's Historic Neighborhoods - Between Denver & Boulder - - 07/27/09 12:40 AM
Olde Town Arvada's historic neighborhoods sprang up in 1870 along the tracks where trains passed through twice a day. Back then, life was all about gold and farming. These days, people love Arvada's town center for its historic flavor, and long-established neighborhoods. Beautiful homes built just before and after the turn of the century - many of the old Victorians are now zoned commercial, and enjoy a new life as businesses such as shops, restaurants, and the Arvada Historical Society. But people looking for that historical neighborhood without the hassle and expense of living in Denver can find many farm (0 comments)
Arvada Neighborhoods - Village of Five Parks -Between Denver & Boulder - 07/25/09 04:33 PM
The Village of Five Parks is located in the northwestern quadrant of Arvada, Colorado. It is bordered on the west by Indiana St., on the north by 87th Parkway, and on the south by the Union Pacific Railroad. People like the Village of Five Parks because of its five parks, community events, main street-style small retail shops, and views of and proximity to the mountains. Negatives include some isolation from major shopping amenities, relatively high homeowner's associaton* fees, the high prices for the homes themselves, and the lack of tree canopy due to the newness of the neighborhood (building started in (3 comments)
Arvada Neighborhoods - West Woods - Between Denver & Boulder - 07/24/09 04:47 PM
West Woods Ranch is located in the affluent 80007 zip code of west Arvada, Colorado.It is between 64th and 72nd Avenues, and mostly west of Quaker. There's easy access to Interstate 70 (Colorado's main east-west route), and someday C-470 (Denver's bypass route, still missing the last leg after about 20 years). People like West Woods Ranch because the western location affords a proximity to a more 'country' setting, rather than that 'lost in suburbia' feeling. It's an easy drive to the foothills and mountains (although watch your speed, as I found out while 'touring' with a friend in their new car!). (0 comments)
Arvada Homes - Lake Arbor Neighborhood - 07/23/09 07:53 PM
Lake Arbor is one of the most popular established neighborhoods in Arvada, Colorado. The popularity is due mainly to the lake itself. Lake Arbor and its surrounding trails, grassy areas, playground, mountain views, and friendly folks hanging out to enjoy Colorado's sunny, clear days makes the neighborhood something special. There's also a public golf course by the same name. There are over 1,000 homes in the Lake Arbor neighborhood. Lake Arbor children attend school at Little Elementary , Moore Middle School, and Pomona High School. Lake Arbor Golf Course is just north of the neighborhood. It has been recently renovated with a (1 comments)

Denver to Boulder - Pomona Lakes Homes with 2000+ Finished Square Feet - 07/12/09 01:09 PM
There's a one-level (ranch style) home for sale in Arvada's Pomona Lakes neighborhood, which caught the eye of a neighbor because it's larger than most (1,682 square feet on the main level plus a full finished basement). The asking price was recently lowered to $269,900. So the gentleman and his wife and I went to see the house yesterday. It is definitely good-sized, with a finished basement. It had been remodeled some over the years (built in 1972), but doesn't have any of the 'wow' items that buyers want today, such as wood floors (there was some older parquet, that needed (0 comments)

Hi, Jill - I'm sorry to hear about your daughter's baby, colic can be horrible. We went through that, too. Boy, when I had a few minutes to spare, I wanted to use it for sleep! Exhausted and looking for a new home? Not fun! That's why she needs a dedicated buyer's agent. I've attached a form explaining that in Colorado you can work with an agent in two ways - as your agent, or as a transaction broker - and it's your choice. See the form here.

4th of July Celebrations Between Denver and Boulder, Colorado - 07/02/09 07:23 PM
I thought it would be fun to see what my friends who live in the towns northwest of Denver are doing for 4th of July - Independence Day. So I emailed a bunch of them and asked. Here's what they're planning, read through for ideas of your own. We’ll be in Westcliffe to watch the parade and we’ll be thinking a lot about our founding Fathers and their beliefs. - Georgia We are having kids/grandkids over for a barbeque/Stenger fireworks. Last year Dave and his girls took us to the Rockies game/fireworks. I'm hoping your blog will give us some creative (2 comments)
