My Clients and Their Neighborhood – Arvada

Arvada

From what used to be an agriculturally based town, Arvada is fast growing while still keeping its country roots.  The area sits just North of I70, East of 93, South of 88th Ave and West of Tennyson St.  Arvada’s commute to Denver, Broomfield and Boulder are short and the escape to the mountains is easy which is why so many people choose to live here!  Arvada Olde Town is filled with tons of unique shops and restaurants and old cobblestone walk ways.  Arvada also has one of the largest Cultural Arts Centers in the country.  Being west of the city and on the way to the mountains, Arvada is home to so many great hiking and biking trails and parks that many residents enjoy utilizing.

My Clients and Their Neighborhood – Park Hill

parkhill

Today’s active families will find the charms of this vibrant community to be as compelling as ever. Park Hill’s international mix of families enjoy short strolls to some of Denver’s finest cultural attractions and shopping. On the west is lake-graced City Park, home to the highly regarded Museum of Nature and Science, Gates Planetarium, IMAX Theatre, Denver Zoo, and Municipal Golf Course.  Park Hill is bordered by MLK Blvd to the north, 23rd Ave to the south, Quebec to the East and Colorado Blvd to the West.  Although residents enjoy a serene lifestyle sheltered from the urban hubbub, Park Hill is just 10 minutes by car from Downtown; world-renowned Cherry Creek Mall Shopping District; and countless retail stores, restaurants, and hotels along Colorado Boulevard.  Park Hill’s residents are fond of walking to Spinelli’s Italian Market for gourmet meats and cheeses, fresh baked breads, scrumptious desserts, and more.

Please meet a couple who recently moved to the neighborhood and love it:

1. How did you choose your neighborhood? We were looking for a neighborhood that was within biking distance of downtown and that felt authentic and diverse. We started researching the neighborhood by driving in and walking our dogs around on the weekends to get a feel for the place and we loved it!

2. What is your favorite feature of your location? The ethnic diversity in the neighborhood and the fact that there a lot fewer houses being scraped and re-built.

3. How long have you lived in the area? Two months.

4. Where is your favorite local spot? There are so many! Bistro Barbes is outstanding with its offering of French/North African cuisine in a small intimate place. The Bike Depot, a non-profit bike shop, is a new favorite with their excellent customer service and the fact that they donate bikes to low income individuals. And the little strip on 23rd and Dexter hosting Spinneli’s market, Cherry Tomato, and the little bakery/coffeeshop is a life-saver.

5. Use one word to describe your neighborhood. Communal

Please meet Amy and Andy Silverman who enjoy their neighborhood:

Silverman family

1. How did you choose your neighborhood? With our kids approaching elementary school age we were looking for a neighborhood with good schools, a strong sense of community, closer proximity to their expanding set of activities and to reduce Amy’s commute time. We had heard really positive things about Heritage Greens, which is an established neighborhood with a nice mix of young and older families and then found the perfect house. It ended up being a no brainer and the best decision we’ve made for our family.

2. What is your favorite feature of your location? The pool and tennis courts – really brings the community together as well as a number of fun social activities. We both have picked up tennis again and our kids participated on the swim team the last two years. Also, nice having South Suburban golf course in our backyard. It’s like country club living without the dues.

3. How long have you lived in the area?  Two years.

4. Where is your favorite local spot?  Big Bills Pizza and Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt – Great combo for a family night out.

5. Use one word to describe your neighborhood. Social.

6. Is there anything else you wish to share about your neighborhood?  We also enjoy the proximity to a number of parks, the High Line canal, shopping and restaurants at the Streets of Southglenn and Park Meadows. And, we have easy access to I-25, 470 and the light rail.

Clint and Jess

1.   How did you choose your neighborhood?  We didn’t. It CHOSE us – we saw an opportunity of amazingness and we went for it – New development, new house, open space and trails right out our front door! Yes please!

2.   What is your favorite feature of your location? A new development that is totally different then the rest of Highlands Ranch – it’s hip, modern and a floor plan that caters to entertainment but keeps the coziness of everyday life.

3.   How long have you lived in the area? We have been here 1 year and 4 months

4.   Where is your favorite local spot? We still have quite a connection to our Denver “local spots” from our previous home;  however it is just a quick drive down University (so easy) to meet up at our local spots that are so close to our hearts – wait does The Ridge at Castle Pines count as a local spot??

5.  Use one word to describe your neighborhood.  Variety

6.  Is there anything else you wish to share about your neighborhood? There is a strong community group that is so easy to be a part of if desired, knowing that life is busy and it might not happen too often.  The dog park is just a skip, hop and a jump away from our front door which makes entertaining our only child very easy.  It’s really peaceful here and kept very clean and neat around us to make our exterior look very attractive all the time. Shea as a builder was great to work with and our experience thus far has been.
