We are possibly moving to Denver. We are looking for good public schools safe neighborhood within a 30-40 minute commute with traffic to Centennial. Price range is 350k give or take for a house. No condos or town homes. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I would start with Centennial, Littleton (the city), and if necessary, Highlands Ranch.

What would you like your new community to have?

We like to do outdoorsy stuff, coffee shops, dance studios are great as well. I have a four year old so kid friendly as well. We are pretty flexible and don't mind driving to find stuff to do..I will check those out to start. Thanks!

Where are you moving from? Property taxes in CO are often on the lower side compared to many other states so that might give you a bit of wiggle room in the budget. 350K is on the low side for a single family with good schools in the Denver metro.

We are moving from Ohio possibly husband job opportunity. Taxes where we live are pretty low. I'm considering that in because I most likely won't work until my daughter starts school. So although we will have an increase in his pay we are also paying more for a house and losing my income but it will be a good move for him in his career. How is the Castle Rock area?

Castle Rock is very nice but the commute would suck.

It's actually not that far, as Concord Center Dr is about the southern boundary for the "Englewood" postal area. I-25 to/from Castle Rock will never be fun during commute time, but if he allowed enough time, it isn't that long of a commute. 30 minutes on bad non-snow days.

OP, your main issue is that you want a house (no condos or townhomes) for $350k. Do a search and you will see that in Castle Rock there are literally seven listings with those criteria with several needing a lot of work. Do your research as you will need to increase your budget.
