Forgot to mention Huntington Trails in Westminster. All newer homes. One side is all custom, the other is luxury builder. Also adjacent to McKay Lake. Very close walk to Orchard Town Center.
Here are the current listings for existing homes. Several to choose from because they are still building out the lots so buyers can build custom or buy resale.
Real Estate & Homes For Sale - 17 Homes - Zillow

Real Estate & Homes For Sale - 18 Homes - Zillow

Very nice park area though the middle of the neighborhood that connects to McKay Lake. Good schools. in 2018 Thornton will get rail access downtown. Station will be a short drive.

Great info. I live in Boulder, so here is some info...

There won't be any more inventory in Boulder in the spring. It's been tight for a long time. A lot of people rent a house and wait for a house they can remodel into what they want. You might want to find a local agent that is plugged in. Boulder is all about local.

Also, there are a lot of pocket parks in Boulder. You probably just missed them. The biggest perk to Boulder parks is the Open Space. It's huge and has a little something for everyone.

Boulder was hippie liberal, but these days it's more California liberal or libertarian. I'm fairly middle of the road and I have no issues, but if you are conservative and like to talk politics it might annoy you.

Denver is great too!

Thanks brown_dog_us and others.
Good to know about inventory issues.

We are fairly liberal; definitely not conservative. Just not extremist either. But from what I've seen so far, I'm not at all concerned with the stereotype issue.

As far as building a new home from scratch in Wash Park or anywhere else - I think that might be a little too ambitious. We are moving to a new place and we have two small children. We have enough on our plates. Some small remodeling is okay, but a new house or major renovation might be too much at this point.

Sorry, I know a long time has passed. We ended up getting a place right on Wash Park. The lot is tiny, but the park more than makes up for it. We've had some (fairly big) problems due to the rains, but other than that, we love Denver so far. Nice to have a real summer in June.

Thanks for your help all!
