Our Clients and Their Neighborhood – Littleton-Polo Reserve

polo

As one of the suburbs of Denver, on the West side of I-25, South of Belleview, North of E470, and East of South Platte Canyon Road, Littleton is connected to the rest of the surrounding metro area by the growing light rail system, making it easy to get anywhere in Denver. Originally, Littleton was a small farming community and part of that history still remains today as the suburb is full of farm land and horse communities. The Littleton Historical Museum serves as a reminder by recreating life on an 1860s farm, while the charming Downtown Littleton is also reminiscent of the past farming community. Changing with the seasons of Colorado, it shifts from being surrounded by holiday lights and snow for winter to outdoor patios, markets and festivals in the warmer weather.

Please meet Sara and Nick Griffith who live in the Polo Reserve neighborhood. The Polo Reserve is located off of Mineral Avenue just east of Santa Fe Drive. There are several very nice amenities within this neighborhood such as a huge equestrian center with polo fields and a lake. The Polo Reserve is very close to downtown Littleton and the RTD Lightrail station. Also, it’s convenient to many other shopping centers and nice restaurants.

1. How did you choose your neighborhood? We looked at homes in Golden, Littleton, and Morrison (all along the west side of Denver), but we ultimately decided on Littleton due to the great selection of homes with nice neighborhoods and larger lots, as well as the nice little downtown area, and the overall proximity to many shops/stores and easy access to highways to get downtown.

2. What is your favorite feature of your location? We love that we can see horses and mountains from our backyard and have a quiet neighborhood, yet we are also three minutes from downtown Littleton and Aspen Grove.

3. How long have you lived in the area? 10 months

4. Where is your favorite local spot? Merles & Breckenridge Brewery/Farm House Restaurant

5. Use one word to describe your neighborhood. Relaxing

6. Is there anything else you wish to share about your neighborhood? We have the best neighbors, and they were all so welcoming. We also love that we live in an area with great schools nearby and quick access to all the stores we would need. The homes in the area all have great yards and space, which is hard to find in Denver sometimes. We also loved that the homes were all somewhat unique in design, so you don’t feel like you live in a cookie-cutter neighborhood. We are very happy with our home and neighborhood, and we are excited for our kids to grow up in this area and still have easy access to the mountains and the city.

Our Clients and Their Neighborhood – Dakota Station, Littleton

chatfield-state-park

As one of the suburbs of Denver, on the West side of I-25, South of Belleview, North of E470, and East of South Platte Canyon Road, Littleton is connected to the rest of the surrounding metro area by the growing light rail system, making it easy to get anywhere in Denver. Originally, Littleton was a small farming community and part of that history still remains today as the suburb is full of farm land and horse communities.

The Dakota Station Neighborhood, bordered by Ken Caryl Ave to the north, South Garrison St to the east, West Chatfield Ave to the south and South Kipling Pkwy to the west, is a small area within Littleton that has so much to offer. Chatfield Lake, just south of the neighborhood is a great place for water sports. You can also camp and horseback ride out there. Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield are also just to the south of the Dakota Station neighborhood offering beautiful gardens to tour and many nightly activities and an entire summer concerts series. Dakota Station Park with two tennis courts and a nice playground is central to the neighborhood. Denver’s E470 is incredibly close for an easy mountain getaway or fun hike in the foothills.

Please meet Allison and Sean Atchison who love living in Dakota Station:

1. How did you choose your neighborhood?  We chose this neighborhood primarily for it’s location. It was a perfect halfway spot between both of our jobs, and was also conveniently close to family.

2. What is your favorite feature of your location?  We love the proximity to 470, the abundance of restaurants in the area, as well as the neighbors. We have AMAZING and friendly neighbors who have already made us feel welcome! We were worried that our dog who enjoys ‘conversations’ with other dogs would cause issues, but there are dogs everywhere in this neighborhood!

3. How long have you lived in the area?  We are just over 3 months of living here, and look forward to many years to come!

4. Where is your favorite local spot?  We have found a Magill’s ice cream just up the road that is our go-to after a date night, or a night with friends. Great ice cream, and not too expensive.

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

6. Is there anything else you wish to share about your neighborhood?  As I mentioned before, it’s a neighborhood full of adaptable folks who will love to welcome you in if you let them. We are very happy with our choice to move here!
