The neighborhood is changing...folks there are down sizing so you will see many more young families moving there. Another popular area is Coventry but quite a bit more expensive. Not crazy about Columbine HIls tho'
I recently SOLD a house on S Jay Dr and the Family absolutely LOVE living here!! :)
Please call me if I may help, cheers Jan 303-931-5853

There is a VERY popular neighborhood pool where a LOT of the neighborhood kids come together during the summer to meet. It's a great place to meet kids in the neighborhood. The biggest question will be price as $300,000 may not get the home you are looking for there.
Leawood is another great possibility.
