If anything, that is an understatement. It would actually be awful. The commute to Anschutz from the northwest (and almost everything is west of Anschutz) is horrendous. I've done it a few times for conferences and the like.
I agree from the northwest--a real pain, rail or no rail. To even get there one would have to change from heavy rail to the light rail at the Peoria Station. I do not like that station because of where it is located.

Also the light rail station with Anschutz is not convenient for all locations. The light rail station on Colfax is southeast of Anschutz is again not very convenient but is closer to that VA hospital which may be finished some day--we hope. The VA will probably be my only reason for going there.

Consider University Hills and Virginia Village (80222) Neighborhoods in Denver. They are family friendly and have more of a suburban feel then an urban one which would allow for your kids to bike and play in the neighborhood. The Yale or Evans RTD stations are easily accessible and the commute to either workplace would be fairly short. There are plenty of homes in this neighborhood that are in your price range.

I tend to agree with all that's being said about commutes, but have friends who have commuted Golden to Anshutz for years. They manage. They love where they live and think it's worth it. They commute early and beat traffic. It works for them.

Park Hill or Mayfair would be great. It will be pretty tough to get under $375K, but it is doable. I think Virginia Village is worth a look.

Focus on "greater" Ash Grove Park.
A house sold near there yesterday for $350K.

But, remember, you snooze, you lose.
