6 Things You’ll Love About Living in Lafayette’s Blue Heron Estates Neighborhood

Colorado Pool Homes for SaleKnown for its luxury homes and large lots, homes for sale in Blue Heron Estates are in one of the most coveted Lafayette neighborhoods. Take a cruise on its shady tree-lined streets, and you’ll understand why homes for sale move fast.

Here are 6 things you’ll love about living here:

1. The short commutes to Boulder, Broomfield, Longmont, and Denver 

Blue Heron is well-situated at the cross-hairs of Colorado’s growing job markets. It’s right there on the corner of 95th and Arapahoe, which makes for an easy commute no matter where you work (or play):

  • Longmont is a 20-minute drive straight north on 95th
  • Broomfield is a 13-minute drive south on 95th
  • Boulder is a 15-minute drive straight down Arapahoe
  • Denver is between 35-45 minutes away (depending on if you take 36 of I-25)

2. The safety of a gated community

Blue Heron has a guard gate at the entrance for security. This gives you an added sense of safety that your home and family will be protected. And that permeates the neighborhood to give it a true feeling of community. Children ride their bikes freely through the streets. Couples stroll the sidewalks after dinner time. Neighbors wave as you drive by.

3. The views of the Flatirons

Perhaps the best selling point of any house along the Front Range, many of the houses in Blue Heron Estates have views of the Flatirons. Just imagine sitting outside on a summer night with a glass of wine in hand, watching the sun set over the Rocky Mountains.

4. The open space in your own backyard

While there are maintained parks within the neighborhood, you can also walk and jog the trails in the open space surrounding Blue Heron Estates. Or, take your dogs out off-leash to play fetch in these stretches of protected land. Enjoy the fact that this unspoiled nature will never be built up into new developments.

5. The shops within walking distance

The privacy you enjoy within the neighborhood is only enhanced by the proximity to shops and restaurants. You’re just across the intersection from a nice brunch at 95a Bistro, dinner-to-go from SmashBurger, or a quick coffee run at Morning Glory Farm Fresh Cafe. Not to mention that the live music just across the street at local venue Nissi’s is perfect for date night.

6. Lounging poolside all summer long

There’s no better way to break the summer heat than to spend a day at the pool. One of Blue Heron’s best amenities is its outdoor pool, which serves as the unofficial community center. Meet your neighbors, enjoy a picnic at a canopied table, and take a dip to cool down.

7. It’s not cookie-cutter

Blue Heron is a neighborhood of custom homes that are stately and have distinct styles. You’ll find exterior finishes in stucco, stone, and brickwork. Front yards have manicured lawns and blooming gardens, decorative statues and gurgling fountains. Mature trees canopy the streets to provide privacy and shade. What you won’t find is the same thing twice.
