"A little "neighborhood" just north of Boulder towards Lyons"
Rifle Ct. has a few homes/ranches just off HW 36 north of where 36 starts heading towards Lyons and gets out of town. Longhorn Road describes the area even better (Rifle Ct. is off Longhorn). This is a great area if you want to live a bit in the country but be close to Boulder for shopping, schools etc... It is not cheap in this area but not as expensive as many areas in BOulder. You can buy larger acreage for about the same price of much much smaller plots of land in or nearer to Boulder proper.
