Being equipped with a brain that tells you when it's just too risky to venture out. In areas where snow is a constant risk, staying touch with weather forecasts is vitally important to one's safety.

The time when people find themselves in trouble is usually when people aren't in touch with their changing environment.....staying tuned and not taking unnecessary risks could be a "life saver!"

Just keeping it real!

Hello Aileen,

There's a large equestrian center within one mile of Green Valley Ranch at Kenlyn Arabian Stables Inc, 1000 Salida St, Aurora, CO 80011. For further information about the stables, call (303) 364-9556. Additionally, if you're interested in buying a property with room for horses, there are many small ranchettes near Green Valley that allow horses. I'd enjoy helping you find the right property for your needs.

Lowry, Stapleton, and city park are also viable options for you. They are in similar price ranges and short cabs to downtown. If just want to know how far I'd say roughly 10-20 minutes depending on traffic. ... more

I've been in Denver for 7 years and used the shuttle bus downtown twice. If it's there and I need it I would not hesitate to use it I guess :)

Trulia Denver,

Good question but I am not sure why you are asking it here on a real estate site. But since i want to be a resource on all things Denver here is your answer - http://www.denvergov.org/DenverAuctionGallery/AbandonedConfiscatedVehicleAuction/tabid/429229/Default.aspx I have purchased vehicles here before.

I have bought vehicles here before that worked out good for me. Good luck with your purchase. Maybe I will see you there. You just reminded me of this option. Thanks.

Based on my experience in other markets in Denver, the property values in Green Valley Ranch should rise due to the proximity to new light rail system and easier and less expensive commute. ... more

Mike Henderson answered:
That is a great question. There are several factors affecting access, light rail, and real estate.

The obvious answer is downtown. It is designed with everything within walking distance. You better love loft and condo type living because that is all there is. Downtown has the densest population so naturally it has the most amenities. The also big difference is that Union Station is the hub which makes it by far the most convenient for connections.

The Lone Tree station also built very well around the principles of Transit Oriented Development (TOD). A TOD community is highly walkable and designed where people can live, work, and shop in the same area.

The biggest factor to consider is how walkable is the station from where you live. The Englewood station is the best example of a TOD development on the Southwest line. There are new apartments on the west side of Santa Fe. It is where the old drive in used to be, my wife and I have been there for at least 10 dates, bye-bye drive in. It appears to be less than a quarter mile away from the station. However, there is not a good walkway. You can't have people running across Santa Fe, a six lane highway. The developer and government couldn't agree on terms and prices so that is why that situation appears to exist.

The biggest deal is how walkable is the station, not the train line, from your location. There is also the factor of how to get there. I have done a study on the Denver light rail system. It compared appreciation of properties next to light rail station by distance vs. non light rail properties. I can provide the results if interested. The data is amazing.

I have a proprietary program that takes the mls listings that come out each morning. I have an excel spreadsheet that looks up every property and it can be sorted to determine how far the property is from the light rail station as well as which particular station.

Light rail properties appreciate in value faster than non light rail properties and are cheaper and more convenient for living with access to transit. If you want to work with a Realtor who specializes in light rail properties please give me a call.

Sincerely,

Mike Henderson

I can definitely answer this...as I live in Golden and have been recently commuting back and forth to Castle Rock for a listing I just closed.

Good weather, not rush hour = about 45 minutes
Good weather, rush hour = about 1 hour 20 minutes (getting through the congested area of C470 and breaking loose at about Santa Fe)
Bad weather, not rush hour = about 1 hour 20 minutes.
Bad weather, rush hour = up to 2 hours (C470 out west can get bogged down on snowy days with many accidents, as well as, once you hit I-25 going south -- not a fun drive at all)

Any reason why you would want to live in Castle Rock, if your job is in Golden. I know I may be a little bias as a native of Golden, born and raise and my children now being born and raise (oldest graduating from Golden High)....

Please contact me if you would like to talk more about the lovely neighborhoods of Golden, I can give you many reasons why I love calling it home.
