I don't think Gunbarrel has any 1 acre lots and probably few if any 1/2 acre lots, drive would be even longer and just as bad.
I've done Gunbarrel to DEN 8x this yr (once / month at least) never over 60 min, Usually plan on 40 min. (2-3 different routes). The hosts we stay with have several acres, as do their neighbors. The nearest 'subdivision' is 12,000SF - 30,000SF lots. But I am not one to know... I have never lived 'in-town' (except overseas) nor will ever need to in USA... plenty of very cheap rural places... (I buy trashed mobile homes and bulldoze them and build what best suits the property). Still some of those in the areas I mentioned. BTW: you NEVER buy something that is already listed "for sale" You gotta dig up your own deals before the realtors show up. Once listed FS... you are WAY too late to snag a viable property. AND then...you will have a HERD of buyers to compete with.

But... as you well know... I am NOT a conventional thinker... I am a Doer. Get-er-done, No monkey business / dinking around with 'Status Quo'. On to the next challenge, there are plenty, especially with the propensity of 'Nay Sayers'. "THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE!!!" (plenty of those too).

I forgot to mention The Preserve at McKay Shores. They have 1/2 acre lots and are a very new neighborhood. Same good schools that I posted about earlier. A number of families with young kids because it is a newer neighborhood. There are only 2 homes listed right now and they are slightly smaller than .5 acres but they are close. The 1/2 acre lots border the walking path. While they aren't listed right now they might be when you are getting ready to buy. The neighborhood is completely built out so everything is a resale.

The drive from Pony Estates mentioned above is about 30 min. to DIA on the tollway so super easy. Pony Estates is an older neighborhood with acreage. Being older it also has a mixed demographic so not tons of kids.

I used to live near those neighborhoods. 99% are small/ smaller city lots. There are exceptions of course, but what the OP is looking for is a needle in a haystack in central/east Denver.

Southeast Aurora is anything but flat, and there are great views. I assume this is the part of Aurora you’re talking about since you mention it in your first post. It's on the northern edge of the black forest, so there are ponderosa pines, and it's very hilly. This is south of Smoky Hill Rd near E470 and near the Douglas County line. Hopefully you'll be coming out soon to visit to see all these areas.

Agree with this. Centennial also has some options.
