Are there any older established areas of CO that are not smack dab in the mtns? I am still looking for trees and established grid-like neighborhoods. I would really like to find a river, or some water system to at least fish in, sit near, or feed the ducks. What were the 1st communities established in CO, and do they have any work available......Just curious for relocation purposes.

Thanks

In Denver, look at historic neighborhoods built in the early 1900's. Denver is built on a grid with the Platt River & Cherry Creek running thru it. On the west side look at sloan's lake. SE Cherry Creek Resevoir and Aurora, SW is Chatfield. There are lots of neighborhoods built in the 50's & 60's with tree lined streets. Oh and closets, tend to be small in the turn of the century models.

Thank you so much, are those the only neighborhoods in Denver? Does Fort Collins have any neighborhoods with a lake or river, I know Loveland has a lake, but not gridlike, or lots of trees. Also, I know Pueblo has the canal, and such.

Also, are these houses attainable and in low crime neighborhoods? or are they run down and on the verge of crime? The turn of the century homes you spoke of.

Attainable, meaning........can I maybe get into a turn of the century home in a nice nieghborhood for around 100,00-150,000? I just need one bedroom, and one bath. I have looked online but hard to know what the neighborhood is like. I wouldn't mind having a fixer upper!

Maybe there is a specific zipcode I can look up, I know in the CS springs area there is Old Colorado City, now those homes are really neat and in a quiet little burb of CS. I wouldn't mind getting a hold of one of those either! I like Old Town in Fort Collins also. I don't think downtown Denver would be bad either I don't think.

Are u a realtor?
