Where to live in Littleton, CO?

Asked by Erika_williams, Littleton, CO Sat Feb 23, 2013

We are relocating from Kansas City to Denver next summer and are focusing on Littleton - or maybe another southern suburb. Our budget is about $400k. We want great schools for our 3 kids and a decent commute to the DTC. Both hubby and I went to CC and are looking for a more liberal vibe and larger lots than Highlands Ranch seems to offer our budget. Ideas?? Many thanks n

Hi Jeff,

Grant Ranch is not zoned for Littleton Public Schools, it is zoned for Denver Public Schools,
School District:Denver 1
Elementary:Grant Ranch E-8
Junior High:Grant Ranch E-8
Senior High:John F. Kennedy
No comparison to Wilder Elementary or Heritage High School in LPS District.

Grant Ranch is a great area and depending on where you live within it your kids may be in Denver schools or Jefferson County schools or even Douglas County schools. Grant Ranch contains all 3 counties so it really depends on which section of the neighborhood you live in.

Hi Erika,
All of these other realtors have some great suggestions, here are a couple more neighborhoods for you to look at: Bow Mar, Polo Reserve, Grant Ranch, Governors Ranch, Coventry, and The Hamlet. They are in Littleton Public Schools/ Jefferson County School district, both of which are really great. Lot size varies between neighborhoods but these areas are definitely family oriented, within great school districts, and would meet your other criteria.
Let us know if you have any other questions!

I know of a perfect home in your budget in an excellent neighborhood. It is in the Littleton Public School district which is one o the best in the country and where the home sits the home elementary school is a fine arts school with great opportunity. I don't know if you need kindergarten but they have a Free full day program that is excellent.
The home is on a large lot with an open floor plan. Three bedrooms upstairs with a large master with its own private deck. Great space for entertaining and a fourth bedroom/ office on the lower level.
Great community with pool, close to shopping, dinning and easy access to highways to get anywhere in the city.
Best of all it's priced in the low $300's
Please call me if your interested in learning more about the home or area.
Good luck with your search!!
