Excellent Real Estate Values In Old North Boulder Neighborhood

The area between Broadway, Folsom, Iris, and Edgewood/Balsam streets is now commonly called the Old North Boulder neighborhood.

Before land was developed and built on beyond Norwood Street, this area was North Boulder. Now with homes built out to the far reaches of the Dakota Ridge neighborhood, the Old North Boulder neighborhood is really a very central residential opportunity.

I’ve spent many days exploring on foot, the roads and paths around central Boulder, and if you do the same you’ll come to realize just how close everything is in this part of town. It’s only a few blocks between local landmarks such as Vics, Marie’s, and Ideal Market, over to Pearl Street, or up to Salberg Park.

The two nearby shopping areas, Ideal Marketplace and Community Plaza are home to many local favorites. Ideal Market has a long history that spans well beyond the age of the current shopping center. It became an anchor for the other shops back in 1958. The Community Plaza shops on the south side of Alpine were built just two years later in 1960.

Other businesses such as Alpine Barbers, Radda Restaurant, Breadworks, Marie’s Restaurant, The Boulder Wine Merchant, and the Pekoe Sip House give residents of the Old North Boulder neighborhood a plethora of opportunity for meeting most shopping needs without much travel. What a great concept in the days of higher gas prices and strong desires to conserve natural resources.
