For what it's worth, my kids are in Widefield schools and while they'll never have the hype that D20 and D12 have, they don't suck. They've got all of the programs you mentioned as far as I know, and unlike both of the above school districts, orchestra is an option as well as band (that's what my family was looking for.) I would expect that somewhere to the east of Powers and south of Fontaine there might be some acreages, and you tend to get more house for your money in the Widefield area. Probably because everyone is so obsessed with the North side, and with living among the mountains. And the commute to Peterson would be really, really painless from down there.

Anyhow I just did a search at ppar.com with the map, place the first marker at the intersection of Fontaine and Powers (FONTAINE, NOT FOUNTAIN) and then drag the search area to the right (east) out past Marksheffel around the housing developments just past Marksheffel...and then I told it to only show properties with 1 acre or more. I got 4 nice looking homes ranging in price from 259K to 375K.

And I neglected to include the entirety of the neighborhood near the intersection OF Fontaine and Marksheffel, which probably has more. Just avoid anything just north of Bradley. I live there now, those homes don't have big enough lots for what you want, in general.

This area I'm talking about is in the 80925 zipcode. Do contact the schools if you're not sure if they'd work for you...they have nice folks who'd be happy to answer any questions you may have. www.wsd3.org has the contact info.
