Oh my... so many choices... I am particularly fond of Wheat Ridge and Arvada.(north of I-70 and east of downtown). Older homes, established neighborhoods.
And there are some great opportunities in Westminster. (more north). Lots of split levels, big yards.
Of course, it depends on what sort of house you had in mind...
