Can anyone tell me about the Highlands 460 neighborhood in centennial? It's bordered by Colorado/University and Dry creek and county line.

Looking to buy in Centennial, we drove through this neighborhood and it looks reseaonable but maybe not as upscale as some of the others?

Hello Michael,

I just Sold a listing in The Highlands last Thursday. Here's a link to it's property website, there's links in the website with lots of information that may be of help to you. http://8164sharrisoncircle.epropertysites.com/

I can tell you that my Sellers lived in the neighborhood for 18 years and absolutely loved their home and the neighborhood. They were very sad about moving but needed to move closer to their family. The neighborhood is pretty much 1980's homes with large green lawns and mature landscaping. There's a bit of space between the homes. The schools are highly rated, there's pretty parks and you're right across from the Golf Course. Shopping and Dining is very close. Many of the homes in the neighborhood have remodeled kitchens and baths. If you buy in the neighborhood make sure you have the roof inspected since some of the homes had hail damage. Many of the homes had setteling issues and you will most likely want an Inspector to look for signs of any potential problems.

Feel free to email or call me if you have any other questions.

Here's a link to all of the homes currently for sale in The Highlands:

As a homeowner, board member, and NOT a broker, I invite you to visit the H460 web page at http://www.highlands460.org for more accurate and updated information (especially regarding the covenants) than you are likely to find on independent message boards such as this.

This is great advice! We are discovering many HOAs throughout Denver have had special assessments, capital projects and construction defect issues. If you don't know HOAs know your HOA management team. Additionally, get involved. Your new HOA needs your help. There are never enough volunteers!

Yes, I've Sold two homes recently in the neighborhood. One of them to one of our favorite lenders. Some of the homes had some settling issues over the years, just have a good inspector look things over. You can get settling problems anywhere in the metro area. Our lender was very picky and chose the neighborhood for location to his and his wifes work and also because it's gorgeous. Since the homes were built in the late 70's and early 80's you will have smaller master bedrooms and master baths. Some of them are decent in size but not like you are going to find in homes built in the last 10 to 15 years. You have to make that decision that most of us have to make, do we want a newer home with more open floor plans, large master suites and modern kitchens or do we want a home built in the 70's or 80's with large, lush yards. You may find a nice compromise by buying a home that's been upgraded in The Highlands like the one on Emerson or if you want a project go for a bank owned home like the one on Harrison and make it into everything you want, if you like the floorplan. I think the kitchen and bathrooms are too small though. Anyway, give me a call if you want to go take a look at any of these homes or if you want information on other neighborhoods.

Thank you,

Highlands 460 has a great location, but many homes are very dated (reason for not feeling as upscale). Prices have fallen significantly in the last few years for this very reason. For more "upscale" check out Homestead Farms. Another great area in Centennial is Willow Creek. If you're looking for "newer," Highlands Ranch is a great choice. Good luck!
