Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and 25 miles northwest of Colorado’s capital lies Boulder, one of the most sought-after locations for outdoorsy singles and families of all ages looking for pristine, preserved nature and a vibrant community.
At the heart of the city is the University of Colorado, comprising over 30,000 students within the city’s population of almost 100,000—the American Institute for Economic Research even recently named Boulder as the top college town among small metros. Directly west of the campus is The Hill, an eclectic neighborhood comprising not only the renowned Fox Theater, bars, restaurants and shopping, but also desirable Boulder real estate including condos, townhomes, and large houses, adjacent to national historic landmark Chautauqua Park.
More than 60 parks including sports fields, playgrounds, skate parks and dog parks are scattered throughout the city. Bicycling is a way of life here, with hundreds of bike paths making a trip to one of these scenic landmarks easily accessible and a quieter place to live. But for those looking for real estate in Boulder for a definitive city experience, go Downtown and tour the open houses of the many homes for sale in Boulder—from condos to remodeled Victorians—situated near famous Pearl Street Mall, one of Boulder’s hotspots. Because of Boulder's strict building laws, you'll never find a city skyline here, but you will find unparalleled, unspoiled views from many homes.
The city has recently topped numerous lists for health, well-being, quality of life, education and art. With the help of a knowledgeable Boulder real estate agent, you can find a new home in this lively city, whether you’re looking for condos and townhomes, small single-family homes or large mansions.
