ya, it's always funny when people come in from out of state and see the mountains for the first time! Unfortunately a lot of people don't take full advantage of them, though.

I'd look at Lac Amora. I live there, and there's great mountain views (probably the best anywhere in Broomfield), as well as lots of open space. And it's in the Boulder County school district.

I think all the districts that serve Broomfield are good. I don't know about housing prices there. Your price range sounds in the ballpark for something decent.

We just closed on a brand new house in Redleaf subdivision. We're moving from NY to there last week of July. Our home was in your price range.

mo1416 - do you mind to tell the size (sq.ft), no. of bed rooms, etc of your new house? I am assuming that it is an independent home.

Thanks again.

Default Info/Opinions on Lac Amora in Broomfield

I work in Cherry Creek. I'm thinking about buying in Lac Amora in Broomfield and would like to hear from people that know about it. I'm a lot more familiar with Boulder and areas to the north, and would really like to live in Boulder, but the prices are so high. I'll be saving a lot over the next year or two, and would hope to move to Boulder before too long.

My wife is a native Boulder girl- how is Lac Amora going to be for her? Young kids? She is used to being able to step out her door and walk downtown or to hiking trails and parks for the kids. It is kind of funny because you would think she would know more about the Denver suburbs, but she basically can just get to the theatre, zoo, and a few other places and doesn't know anything about the suburbs- but she knows the mountains really well. What about resale? Is Lac Amora a desirable enough neighborhood that we can plan to be able to sell when we want to?

Thanks for any thoughts!

Cool Not Much Help but Welcome!

We are also Boulder transplants looking to move back in a few years. I don't know anything about Lac Amora but my neighborhood - east of Hwy 287 - links up to the Broomfield trail system. We regularly bike to the library with our three children and we are within walking distance of Midway park - a nice perk when Broomfield Days comes around.

Even with all the great amenities in Broomfield, we still find ourselves trekking to Boulder to hike our favorite trails because it's just so flat out here! We can't get excited about walking around the flatlands, but the trail system is nice and goes as far east as the Derda Rec center (maybe even farther).

One other thing - if you have school-aged children, check out your neighborhood school (Aspen Creek K-8, I think). Lots of people love it, but we think it looks like a prison and exemplifies the suburban stereotype of sprawl. For resale purposes, though, stay in BVSD. Just my 2 cents.
