Hi. We are currently living in Highlands Ranch, but are looking to relocate to another part of Colorado. I have searched posts, but have not seen any information on the Ken Caryl area. Does anyone know anything about it in terms of housing, crime, etc. ?

Thanks!

It can be difficult to look up crime statistics on a subdivision level, so Ken Caryl will be grouped in with the rest of Littleton from a tracking standpoint. My opinion based upon people that I know in the area is that Ken Caryl has a very low amount of crime.

Depending on where in Ken Caryl you would like to live and lot size will determine how much you are going to spend on housing. Currently 42 homes are on the market ranging from low $200k to over $1mil. The median price is $500k. Most of the homes are built in the late 80's to early 90's, cedar shake roofs are somewhat common. It is not as new as Highlands Ranch, but it has a little more character.

there are two pools, and a equestrian center to Ken Caryl. there are two distinct areas of houses, the ranch - outside the hogback & the valley is inside. see http://www.ken-carylranch.org/News.asp (broken link).

It is in unincorporated Jefferson county, 80127 zip near Martin campus...

Just curious as to why you are leaving Highlands Ranch. I am looking for a new neighborhood as well and Highlands Ranch & Ken Caryl have come up as possibilities. Thanks!.

Default Ken Caryl

We have since changed our mind about moving to the Ken Caryl area since I posted that note. We drove out there and felt while it is a beautiful area, it just felt too far out for us. We are now considering staying in Highlands Ranch, Centennial (my kids already attend Cherry Creek schools) or checking into Louisville.

If anyone knows anything about the schools in Louisville, I would love to hear about them.

Also, I was wondering about the real estate market. Everyone keeps saying that it is horrible for sellers, yet it seems like a ton of homes are selling in Highlands Ranch.

My kids went to Louisville schools K-12. You can find all the rankings on the Colo. Dept of Ed Website. You will have to google it; I don't know it. They are good schools, sometimes seem a bit "preppy". My kids did well and thrived, but some kids have a hard time fitting in to that environment. There is not much diversity in any of the Lsvl schools.

Question Lower priced houses seem to sell FAST!

I was just out visiting for a week from New York and looking at houses in Littleton. I especially liked the 80127 zip. Every house I was interested in in the $220K to $250K range in very good condition went under contract the day I saw it or was already under contract! The Westgold Meadows subdivision in particular got snapped up very quickly. This came as a bit of a surprise after hearing for so long about all the inventory sitting around. (Not so in Castle Rock, it seemed.)

Default Houses in Highlands Ranch

We sold our house in Highlands Ranch in about 30 days. Now, we are trying to find a new house to move to and really are having a hard time finding what we want. Prices seem very high to me. The media keeps telling all of us that it is a buyer's market. I personally am not seeing it here. Are there any agents who would like to give input in to what they are seeing with the Colorado market? Where can you get more house for you money? It sure isn't here.

Denver's (and surrounding suburbs) RE market is a little different compared to most metro areas because Denver never got the huge run ups like most areas did in the last 5-7 years. Denver is still a bargain compared to most.
