"Pine Brook Hills"

8 -10 minutes from downtown Boulder find the friendly and serene neighborhood with a great sense of community. Pine Brook Hills has its own water company, fire department and loads of hiking and mountain biking trails. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets and views of Boulder and the surrounding mountains.
Pros
  • Amazing views of Boulder and the surrounding mountains

"Wonderland Hill/Lake is truly wonderful!"

Wonderland Hill is a great great neighborhood that I would love to live in. Some good friends of ours live along the lake (lucky!) and we have been spending some time over there lately. The area seems so quiet and safe to me and the homes are an interesting mix of architecture, big and "normal" for Boulder.

I think home prices are pretty pricey but if I had the money I would invest there now while the buying is still relatively low. I also like the Hungry Toad restaurant and we all waked from a home on Wonderland Hill all the way there the other day and it was a blast. Downtown is a bus or bike ride away and Ideal Market and Lucky's MArket are really close too, so no need to drag into Safeway or busy Whole Foods.
Pros
  • Neighborhood pools, tennis courts and playgrounds.
  • Surrounded by amazing views of foothills and lake
  • Walk to Lucky Market and Lucky Bake shop and Creamery
Cons
  • expensive real estate

"Boulder's Hidden Secret"

Nestled in the foothills just North of downtown Boulder is a magical neighborhood area known as Wonderland Hills. Criss-crossed by miles of walking, hiking and biking trails beautiful homes sit at the edge of scenic Wonderland Lake. This area is so quiet and serene, animals visit the lake daily and neighbors convene by the lake or at the neighborhood pool or tennis courts to exchange news of the day while children run and play at the neighborhood parks, fish in the lake or ride their bikes along the trails. This is truly Boulder's hidden secret.
Pros
  • Surrounded by amazing views of foothills and lake
  • Walk to Lucky Market and Lucky Bake shop and Creamery
  • Neighborhood pools, tennis courts and playgrounds.
