Westminster's Sunstream Neighborhood
The Sunstream nieghborhood in Westminster, Colorado is a great family-friendly, quiet nieghborhood located half-way between downtown Denver and Boulder. The Sunstream neighborhood is right next to Standley Lake, where there are miles of unpaved trails for running, walking, or biking. You can take a boat on Standley Lake up to 20 horsepower without a permit, larger boats require you to obtain a permit. A lottery is held each year to get a permit. Standley Lake also has a great picnic area and a Bald Eagle viewing area near the visitor center. There is a pair of Bald Eagles that nest at Standley Lake year round. There is a nice campground at Standley Lake too.
There are numerous parks near the Sunstream neighborhood. You can take a pleasant walk down the Big Dry Creek trail to King Soopers, restaurants, bars, and other stores. The Big Dry Creek trail continues for twelve miles all the way to I-25. I live in Sunstream and love being able to go for a run or bike ride right from my front door.
The Sunstream neighborhood was built in 1978 and has ranch style homes, tri-levels, bi-levels, and two-story homes. The nieghbors are friendly and there are lots of children in the Sunstream neighborhood. Several of the parks nearby have really nice playgrounds. The trees and landscaping in Sunstream are mature. Many homes in the Sunstream neighborhood have great mountain views. The foreclosure crisis has spared the Sunstream neighborhood.
There are currently just a few Sunstream homes for sale, priced from $198,000 to $225,000. Sunstream is a great neighborhood for first-time home buyers.
