"A great street to call home"

In 2006 my wife and I moved onto S. Harrison Way shortly before the birth of our first child. The neighborhood, The Knolls, is one of those that has a pool, tennis courts, and a very active social committee all included in your HOA dues. That's what we wanted in a long-term home and I must say that we are extremely happy with our choice.

S. Harrison Way is the starting point for the annual Fourth of July parade, so be prepared in the morning to either participate or at the very least get to the front yard to watch.

There's a mixture of residents from the young couples like my family to the original owners who have lived there for over 34 years! Trees and landscaping are mature and peaceful as long as we don't have any major snow storms that break the branches! But the HOA does a wonderful job at getting snow plows on the streets after every major snow storm so unlike many surrounding communities, we have no problem driving in the winter.

Yard size is about average for the area with most homes on a 1/4 acre or more. The homes were build by Writer in the early 1970s and there is a mix of traditional two-story, ranch, tri-level, and even some bi-level homes. Writer is perhaps best known in the area as the developer of Willow Creek and is considered one of the best home builders in the day. (Writer has since been purchased by Standard Pacific homes).

The street is off the main throughway in the neighborhood so traffic isn't much of a problem, even the high school kids seem to mostly respect and obey the speed limit. The southern portion of Harrison backs to Colorado Blvd. and while it's not a super busy road, there can be some street noise. From the upstairs bathroom in my home I can actually hear traffic from Colorado AND Dry Creek Roads, but if I close the window it becomes totally quite.
