My wife and I recently moved to the Littleton area and are renting while we shop for a home. Still being new to the area we are trying to get a better sense of the neighborhoods and are wondering what are considered the best neighborhoods in both Littleton and unincorporated Jefferson County (Ken Caryl all the way east to Broadway). We are looking for a neighborhood with good public schools, access to parks/trails, and the highest quality homes we can afford in the $750k range. For those familiar with the area, what neighborhoods would you consider the very best in this price range?

I grew up off S. Windermere near Heritage High school, was a great neighborhood and still is. My parents are still there.
I also grew up in the Normandy Estates area until I was 13, that was nice also.

Good variety of homes in your price range in that area, ranging from homes built in the 1960s. You might look in the Meadows between Simms and Kipling north of Ken Caryl Ave, Trailmark south of C470 off of Wadsworth, or Water's Edge near Robert Easton Park.

There is no variety. There is a decided lack of homes in any price range except over a million.

So it sounds like you prefer Ken Caryl, Grant Ranch, Governor's Ranch, Columbine Knolls South 2, columbine valley, and Trailmark to the Meadows? Is this on account of cookie cutter homes in the Meadows?

As a separate question, I can't seem to find the difference between Columbine Knolls south 1 and 2 and why 2 would be preferable?

How would you compare the Meadows with Columbine Knolls South? It seems these two are very competitive in terms of price range and square footage, but I don't know which area is "nicer" or more desirable.

I used to live in Columbine Knolls South II. You will have to discover the feel of the neighborhoods yourself.

Since I drive all over, I wanted quick access to C-470. I picked cks2 because the kids could walk to school. Yes, I was licensed way back then. When I bought that house there were only two to choose from. The builder had a good reputation and the streets were wider.

I moved to Highlands Ranch and live there for 17 years. I now live in Lakewood.

You need to start with a map of school districts.
Mark the desirable ones for you.
Now look for neighborhoods.

Both very nice. CKSII off of Wads between Chatfield and Ken Caryl, Meadows is north of Ken Caryl between Kipling and Simms. Can't go wrong either way, one will have you accessing 470 off of wads, the other 470 off of ken caryl, if proximity to a certain area is of importance.
