Question-

If you worked in the southwest side of Littleton and could live anywhere with in a reasonable drive (<30 minute commute) where would you live and why? Not knowing anything about me or what I like please share your opinions on the areas you think are best and why!

Thanks.

If money was no object than I would live in Southwest Littleton or the adjacent unincorporated part of South Jefferson County, west of the Platte. I would live west off South Platte Canyon Road off West Bowles, Coal Mine, Ken Caryl, Chatfield and going west to Wadsworth---all this area is in the Columbine Valley. A great area, wonderful homes; good access to open space, trails and parks. Close to the good shopping near Southwest Mall and close enough to the Rail Station on Mineral and in the old area of Littleton.

If you really had plenty of money and wanted a real exclusive place to live then you should look at just east of South Platte Canyon Road, south of Bowles. This is a separate, small municipality of Columbine Valley.columbinevalley Most people do not know that this place exist.

If money was no object, I'd live in the Arrowhead country club. Denver, CO Golf, Mountain Golf, Tournaments Weddings, Arrowhead. Once two years ago I had the opportunity to drive in and look around. This neighborhood is so absolutely beautiful it's actually a shame they allowed it to be developed-- should have been purchased as public land along with adjacent Roxborough State Park. Second place would be Ken Caryl Ranch.

BTW, when you say you work in southwest Littleton... anybody who's lived in Denver for a while knows exactly which company you're talking about. There's only one in that part of town, and their operation is HUGE.

1. Bow Mar - especially if I could get a house on the lake.
2. Grant Ranch - especially if I could get a house overlooking the lake (there's a pattern emerging here).
3. Ken Caryl Valley
4. Pinehurst - on the Golf Course.

If you are talking about Lockheed Martin, then it is not in Southwest Littleton. It is in unincorporated Jefferson County. The City of Littleton is very small. Littleton City Limits Littleton is in Arapahoe County and is the County Seat.

It is only the postal address and is the same issue with the tragedy at Columbine, which was commonly reported to be in Littleton, but it is in unincorporated Jefferson County.

Bow Mar or Conifer. Since money is not an issue, I'm commuting via helicopter.

However, you really can't go wrong anywhere in the area bounded by Hampden/US 285, I-25, and C-470.

Yes, when anybody says "southwest Littleton"-- the unincorporated Jefferson Co area, not the actual town of Littleton, is most likely they have in mind.

Actually, I had no clue about Lockheed Martin. My husband is in health care so it apparently is not the company you are thinking, but glad to know there is a strong economic force there!
