Usually when I blog about “Living on the West Side” I really do mean living on the West side of the Metro Denver area. In this blog, I would like to take you in a bit of a different direction! This time, I’ll share about living on the NORTH side of the Metro Denver area.
Brighton, Commerce City, Dacono, Erie, Fort Lupton, Frederick, Henderson, Longmont, Meade and Johnstown are names many equate with farmland, industrial sites and otherwise ‘way out there’ types of places. My question is “Have you been way out there lately?” The once rolling hills, agriculture domains and industrial pockets are now few and far between. What has replaced the often-called “boonies” are very nice, affordable, contemporary, planned living communities that are literally a hop, skip and a jump from downtown Denver, downtown Boulder and our highway systems that link to everything!
Affordable living can still be found in Adams, Weld and the East side of Boulder Counties. Good schools, doable taxes and large homes on nice sized lots can be found in abundance here, if you have an open mind and a willingness to take a short drive. Dream of a four bedroom home on a large lot for under $500,000, in a nice neighborhood with a few good parks close by? Done! Dream of a beautiful custom home on half an acre or more with neighbors not too close, but not too far away either, for under $700.000? Done!
Just a 20 minute drive North from downtown Denver on I-25, Highway 76 or Highway 85 and you will find homes you could only dream about finding in the immediate Metro area! You CAN afford to live in the home of your dreams if you SHIFT FOCUS about the North side of the Metro area! It’s new, it’s refreshing and it’s AFFORDABLE! It’s also an EASY COMMUTE to any of the closer-in suburban areas, downtown Denver, and Boulder! Just try it – you may find you like it!
While you are checking out the North end of the Metro area, please come see my listing at 3530 Willow Road at the Rinn Valley Ranch in Frederick! This truly sensational home sits on a fenced half acre, has four bedrooms including a main floor master, open concept kitchen/great room area, huge front porch and a gorgeous back deck. And what a price tag for all of this: $530,000! It’s like having a small estate for under a million dollars, and just a 25 minute drive into downtown Denver! Don’t miss this house! Don’t miss this opportunity! Don’t miss these areas!
