I see what you are saying, but if someone is truly looking for a suburb with the ordinary interpretaion of the word 'suburb' I don't think that Wash Park, Capitol Hill, Highlands, Berkeley or Sloans Lake really fit that bill.

They aren't areas with big buildings like a downtown, but they are typical residential areas within a city. In my view, the city areas of Denver are so much nicer than the suburbs, with more interesting and varied houses and a generally nicer appearance - but to each his own

I may have to do the rental thing as I'm heading out before my wife, given the number of places to live it's good to have it narrowed down at least.

I also have the option of temporarily living out of an RV, which is my uncle's, in order to cut down immediate costs and to avoid signing a lease I may not want.

Urban suburban, is that a category? haha. I wouldn't mind some of those areas, judging by the houses I've viewed, my wife tends to lean towards newer construction. An updated and relatively convenient interior would be something I think she would go for though.

Dogs are our kids now, so dog safe would be good to. Eventually it'll need to be kid safe, schools, etc, but who knows where'll we'll want to live by that point.

Okay. I understand and agree.

I'm not sure I think of Capitol Hill as suburban, though. In fact, I don't think of it as suburban at all. The others, I can understand.

I would think that much of the Denver area is pretty dog friendly, unless they're pit bulls. In Washington Park for example, you see dogs all over the place (on leashes with owners), especially during the Furry Scurry event each May.

They are selling some homes near your range and size range within a couple of blocks of the Stapleton dog park. New construction so that first the bill for the wife too. The park is off of Spruce just north of Montview or 20th ave east of downtown.

cherry creek could be a good bet for now. urban amenities with a neighborhood feel. plenty of shopping, bars, dogs, etc. close to downtown. also seems to be a blend of DINK's (Dual Income No Kids) and families. not sure about the prices tho. not my forte.

You won't find an undeveloped lot in the price range he is listing in that area. Besides it is no more suburban and maybe more urban than some of the contested places previously mentioned like Washington Park.
