Hi there,

We are looking to move to the foothills in the spring. We're torn between Evergreen and Golden. We have 3 grammer aged children, want to spend 400-500k and know what we are getting into with regards to the winters. Both work from home based offices. Husband commutes to the airport 3x a month, I'm exclusively home based. We are looking for a small community, we're not happy with the sprawling suburb we live in now.

Torn between Evergreen or Golden. Evergreen has better schools, I like the proximity of Golden to amenities better. Seems that we can get more of what we are looking for housewise in Evergreen (ideally N. Evergreen). Think Golden real estate will just increase with light rail access in the near future. We are open to Conifer, it just seems like it's a lot further. Morrison is a consideration as well.

Would love some opinions! I've read through a lot of the threads but in most cases it is people trying to decide if they should move to the foothills. We've already decisded so now we're down to what area.

Thanks! (by the way moving from SE Denver and have lived here for a few years)

I don't think there is a reason not to explore all the areas you mentioned and see how the different communities feel to both of you.

If the schools are the driving factor, start there.

All of those areas are in the same school district, you may wish to discuss your needs with the principals.
