The Best Areas in North Metro to find land (and buy/build garages)

Denver is a forever-growing city right now, with more cranes sprinkled along the Denver skyline then we have seen in a long time, there is always buildings going up. But as everyone knows, as the city continues to grow the one thing that we will see less and less of is actual land and I have many clients who are looking for areas to live where they can still have some acres to themselves and not look directly into their neighbor’s windows. These same clients want to make sure their commute isn’t going to take up hours of their days either because no one wants to spend 1-3 hours driving every day when they could be spending that time working, with their family or enjoying other activities.


An area I tell these clients to look is North Metro, just a hop, skip and jump down US-36 and I-25 heading towards Boulder but not quite that far.  These areas are easy and accessible to the highway so for anyone who may work in downtown Denver, they have a fairly easy commute to and from the city. But these areas also allow homebuyers the opportunity to have some real land where they are able to either build or just own. My family and I live in Brighton Colorado, which is about a half-hour drive from Denver each way. The area we live in is called Todd Creek Estates, a wonderful neighborhood with lots of room between homes and plenty of space for a garage to hold a good car collection. One thing my wife and I are passionate about is our car collection. Something we look forward to every year together as a family is heading to the car show to find a new car to add to the fleet. Because we have a growing collection, we needed to find an area that allowed for us to have garages of a decent size and also the ability to build if need be. For those clients who are looking for areas that have space for land these are some of the neighborhoods I recommend:


Spruce Meadows - Broomfield, CO

Lexington, Westminster, CO

Erie Air Park - Erie, CO 

Mustang Acres - Broomfield, CO

Tiara Estates - Broomfield, CO

Todd Creek - Brighton, CO

Pony Estates - Broomfield, CO

Eagle Shadow - Brighton, CO

Lake Avery Estates - Thornton, CO

Glen Eagle Estates - Thornton, CO

Angel View Estates - Frederick, CO

These areas are all located in Broomfield, Westminster, Thornton and Brighton all part of that North Metro area. If you are thinking it might be time to head outside the city and find a spot with a bit more land and a little more privacy, one of these neighborhoods could be perfect for you.
