Crestview Neighborhood Boulder Colorado

Location: 

Between Violet and Sumac to the north and south, respectively, the western border of Broadway and the eastern border of 26th up to where 28th meets 36 north.

My Take On This Neighborhood: 

Some areas of this neighborhood are newer, and attractive to those of you looking to

move into an area that feels like a typical suburban location.

If you explore other areas, you’ll find homes built many years ago, when green

building and views were not considered. Some of these homes have been nicely

renovated or rebuilt. Those that have not been updated still likely sit on a large lot, and therefore represent some opportunity if you want to create a home that fits our more modern lifestyle.

History: 

Crestview saw a building rise in the 1980’s and 1990’s. In the slightly older, western portion, there are larger lots than what you see in a typical lot and block subdivision, and in the later years as development moved to the eastern portion of the neighborhood, culde-sacs emerged.

What’s New Today:

In the areas where some of the older homes are found, there’s a trend towards major remodeling, or complete rebuilds as people gravitate towards a quiet neighborhood with mostly large lots.

Local Highlights:

Crestview Elementary anchors this neighborhood. Crestview is the school where the locally-based Freiker program got its start. A local cycling enthusiast parent, and engineer decided that it made sense to get kids more enthused about riding bikes to school.

Crestview has some really large lots, big trees, and it’s the original site of the Freiker bike to school program.

Make sure to take a little time and drive around the Crestview Neighborhood! Many people miss checking out details like Crestview Park. Crestview Elementary School, which takes up part of the area is in the south east corner of this public park in the core of the Crestview Neighborhood.
