Pine Brook Hills Neighborhood Boulder Colorado

The entrance to this mountain community begins one mile west of N. Broadway by way of Linden Drive. Views vary, from the eastern lakes and plains to the western snow-laden Continental Divide. Many homes enjoy their own unique hillside setting with a myriad of valley vistas.


MY TAKE ON THIS NEIGHBORHOOD:


If you like mountain-style living, but don't want to be too far from the amenities of Boulder, Pine Brook Hills could be just for you. It's only about 10 to 12 minutes from the upper reaches of Pine Brook to Broadway, and about 15 minutes from downtown Boulder.


Due in part to its own district water supply, natural gas supply, and an outstanding volunteer fire department (50 volunteers and a professional Chief), the market demand for Pine Brook Hills continues to be historically strong.


HISTORY:


The Pine Brook Hills neighborhood in Boulder contains almost 400 homes. Homes were built here as early as the 1960s, and some of them are just recently constructed, while there are also still empty lots, only a few remain available, or are viable as building sites.


This mountain community has had seven filings with many replats. Assessed values and sales have topped several million dollars. Prices / Values have increased significantly.


WHAT’S NEW TODAY:


Most of the older homes have been upgraded and remodeled, but there are still some of them which are a reasonable value (potentially under $1 million) if you are looking for a renovation opportunity, presuming something actually comes up for sale.


LOCAL HIGHLIGHTS:


Pine Brook Hills is an unincorporated mountain community, by local standards referred to as the 'Suburban Foothills'. The distinctive feature that's of current interest is that Pine Brook is one of the very few mountain communities along the Front Range to have piped water for fire fighting and in some cases domestic water. It comes from


both deep wells, Four Mile Creek, as well as the man made lake just above the community center and firehouse. It holds a 5 year supply of water with its 4-acre lake. The dam was completed in 2007 at a cost of $4,500,000. Also some homes in Pine Brook have natural gas instead of propane fuel for heating and cooking etc. Most, if not all home in Pine Brook Hills are on septic systems.
