What in the way of older neighborhoods are there in Denver. We might be moving there in the next 6 months and would need 1500-2000 square feet. Nothing fancy or pretentious, just a safe area. And is everything priced really high? My wife doesn't like the new look.

That would be Washington Park. Prices should be between $465,000 and $2 million.

Washington Park is nice but I've never heard anyone refer to it as cheap.

For nice older neighborhoods that are cheap you may have to look at the older inner ring suburbs like Old Englewood, Old town Arvada and Old Littleton. There are some options in Denver as well but this all depends on your price range and what other things you are looking for.

There are numerous old neighborhoods in Denver that are safe. Washington Park is not the only safe old neighborhood. To know and love the City of Denver, one has to know all the areas and neighborhoods, not only the ones that are popular in the press.

I would suggest parts of many of the neighborhoods in the south and southeast, as the safest, such as: Rosedale, University, University Park, Platte Park--all have good, great areas that are cheap. In addition, you will find many safe cheaper neighborhoods in Virginia Village, Goldsmith, Washington Virginia Vale, Montclair. All these neighborhoods I consider safe for families; have nice parks; access to good public transit and walkable neighborhoods with services.I would also add the neighborhoods in the far southwest of Bear Valley and Fort Logan.

In addition, the northwest neighborhoods of Regis, Berkeley, West Highland, Sloan Lake are now becoming the in places to live. This rejuvenation has positively effected the older ring suburbs that are next to, and contiguous to these areas. I do agree that many of the older ring suburbs of Denver can offer great values in good safe neighborhoods. In addition, all neighborhoods of Denver are going to transitions and being renovated; there are many values to be found.

I would also take a look at some of the Lakewood neighborhoods that are closer to the Denver border. You may find something you like in that area. I don't know about the schools though!

Also, how old are you talking about? Early 1900's old or 1950's old?

Depending on where you're looking I would second older parts of Littleton and Englewood. Safer areas, older than suburbs more to the south, more affordable, and there will be houses in that size range

Is Lakewood considered gay friendly? We are looking to relocate that way from Dallas.
