"Gunbarrel Estates"

The first of the homes framed in Gunbarrel Estates was started in the subdivision in 1964. By the 1970’s, the neighborhood was well established and not just people who worked at IBM lived here. There is no more room for new buildings but the area is very near the Gunbarrel shopping center and not far from Boulder and Longmont.

Technically part of Boulder, the neighborhood is one of the more affordable housing divisions in Boulder, but it is not within walking distance of town like so much of Boulder. The county, high plains feel of Gunbarrel is more like Longmont than the mountain feel of Boulder.

Homes are nice with yards and a fair amount of privacy, most go for around $300,000--$350,000. There are also some apartments available in the area too.
  • close to Boulder
