Hi,
My husband and 2 young kids and I are relocating to Castle Rock, CO next month and, although there are lots of threads already on the topic, I was hoping to start a more current one. We've been on a few trips to look at the area and have heard great things about the Meadows neighborhood, particularly.
Of the neighborhoods there, I've heard from multiple people that Fuller Bluff is a popular one. It's walking distance to the Grange pool, is far enough back not to be in the midst of the new 'downtown shopping/dining area' they're building, but not too far back so that you spend 10 minutes just getting out of the Community. I love that the new hospital and Philip S Miller park are practically on your doorstep.
We looked at a few houses in Fuller Bluff and have just fallen in love with one with great views of the beautiful mountains on a quiet cul-de-sac. Hoping to sell our house so we can make an offer on it but wanted to ask people in the area what their thoughts are - what's castle rock really like?

Anyone have any local perspective? It seems like house prices there are rising, there's a boom of activity, and compared to the newer communities going up, it's good value for money and getting to be pretty established.

Hi,

Ironically, I live in Fuller Bluff in the Meadows. I really like it too!
Lots of children, like you said, and really friendly neighbors. There's a good vibe here and a lot going on in the community with the parks, trails, and the Grange nearby. I'm really excited for the new rec center, new shops and new restaurants to be finished too.

From a local perspective, I agree that the Meadows is a good bet...nothing to dislike and pretty low HOA fees. People round here take care of their houses and lawns so it always looks nice when you're driving round.

ps - The houses in Fuller Bluff don't stay on the market long though so if you have seen one you like, I'd jump on it. Maybe we'll be neighbors

Agreed - love the area. I don't live in the Meadows but looking at moving there from Parker later this yr just for the views and scenery;; my friends a realtor and said its going to be much more expensive to live there when constructions done next year. ALso Charles Schwab and Visa are moving 10 minutes away so its a pretty desirable location.

Denverfan - what do you mean when you say its going to be "much more $ to live in the Meadows next year" - I'm assuming you're talking about housing prices continuing to rise? Cos if you're a current homeowner, it won't be more $$$

Yup, sorry _ I meant that it's my view that house values there will appreciate next year given what the area will have to offer

Hello MarjorieD, I see your post is from sept. 2014. Did you relocate to Castle Rock, Co? My husband and I plan to move there next summer. What do you think? Is it what you thought it would be? We are relocating form Southern California. My husband and I are very excited about the move. My kids not so excited. Anything I can tell them to get them more interested?
