Here’s a tour for you of the Rock Creek subdivision in Superior, Colorado. Many people have gravitated towards Rock Creek in Superior as their place to call home. I’ve met folks that say they like the master-planned community, the convenience of outstanding shopping and other amenities, proximity to jobs at Interlocken and soon ConocoPhillips, and of course the easy travel via Hwy 36 to Boulder and Denver.
The town of Superior was originally founded in the late 1890’s and owes its roots to the coal mining industry. For most of it’s recent history Superior remained home to about 250 people. It was a quiet town that most folks coming to and from Boulder on the turnpike knew of only because of the Superior/Marshal exit sign they would see approaching Davidson Mesa from the east.
Then in the late 1980’s a large portion of land which was part of Rock Creek Ranch was subdivided, eventually McCaslin road was widened going south from Marshal Road and homes began popping up.
Now the Rock Creek development, which consists of homes mostly built by Richmond American, and a few custom builders, makes up the bulk of what we now consider Superior, Colorado.
Over time, a commercial area known as Superior Marketplace came into being, and brought with it businesses like Target, Costco, Wild Oats (now Whole Foods), Sports Authority, and a selection of other retail businesses.
One of the benefits of Rock Creek that keeps property values up and folks moving into the area is the careful planning and continued efforts of town officials to preserve the quality of life in Rock Creek. While there are some undetermined plans for the 135 or so acres along the turnpike (Hwy 36 between Denver and Boulder is often still called the Boulder Turnpike by locals), for the most part, Rock Creek is a fully developed and complete community.
Given that there isn’t a continuing supply of newly built homes, as long as demand stays strong from home buyers wanting to live in the area, the real estate market and home prices will remain strong, as they have for years.
The area includes about 2700 single family homes, approximately 1800 multi-family homes (condos and apartments), and altogether is home to about 12,000 people.
One of the big attractions for many people are the well-planned parks and open spaces, and especially the way these public lands are all so interconnected. There are almost 600 acres of parks, green spaces and open spaces in Superior, and almost 30 miles of trails. These trails connect parks such as Community Park on the South end of Rock Creek which is home to Williams Field, Purple Park on the north end of the community, and numerous pocket parks, greenbelts, tot lots and the schools and community pools.

If you’ve been looking for Boulder real estate for sale and aren’t finding what you want, perhaps you’re looking in the wrong place!
Many people that move into the Boulder area have a high interest in living in the foothills, so that they can experience the mountains on a daily basis. This home near Jamestown, Colorado could be an excellent way to fulfill that dream.
This is a very bright, beautiful, and efficient two-bedroom home in the Overland subdivision on Bramer Road.
This home includes a one acre tree-filled lot with several outbuildings including a two stall horse building that includes a really well-built tack room, a couple of tuff sheds, and a hay shed.
The seller of this well-maintained home has put an amazing amount of time, energy and money to bring you a fantastic turn-key ‘mountain home’ solution.
There’s new carpet in both bedrooms, the inside has been completely painted, and there’s a completely brand new domestic water well system.
The new well includes every part and piece you might imagine, and then some you might not even think of…
Unless you have personal experience or work in the industry, you might not know certain elements of a properly functioning well system. In this case, we’ve documented all the steps taken and this includes the replacement of each portion of the system from the well pump to the pex plumbing lines the home; from the electrical cabeling between the well and well head to the sophisticated filtration system.
The location is another important factor for you to consider. Many homes in the mountain communities and foothills around Boulder have very challenging roads and driveways. This home is at a place that makes it a relatively easy access to Jamestown, Boulder and the surrounding associated areas. Each of my trips to the property essentially amounted to about an 18 to 22 minute drive to Boulder.
The home is also only about 1200 feet to a beautiful national forest trail that leads to a wonderful meadow, pond and forest. It’s also only one mile to the St Vrain trail, about five miles down the road to either Jamestown or the Peak to Peak highway (which takes you right over to the Millsite Inn near Ward).
With a south-facing wrap around front porch, a large bay window and a super efficient wood burning stove, you have an opportunity to have a very low-impact, efficient, warm and beautiful home in a quiet setting.
I hope you’ll schedule a showing and review the dedicated website for this home, so thatyou can see what a great opportunity this is at a fantastic value in Boulder County.
