Gunbarrel Green Neighborhood Boulder CO

You may already know about the Gunbarrel area, and I want to give you a little background on the area.

Here we’ll go over the neighborhood that launched the area due to IBM.  It’s called Gunbarrel Green. It’s a part of Boulder real estate that still remains elusive to some out-of-town buyers, and it’s an area you should explore before you firm up your decision about where to live in Boulder.

In 1957 IBM bought 640 acres of land near the Boulder reservoir for a new facility. Along came local developers, the Williams brothers, who thought it would make sense to move the Boulder Country Club from its current location east of Boulder on Arapahoe avenue to a new spot.

The basic idea the Williams brothers had was to build a residential development to subsidize the costs associate with the country club and golf course.

IBM executives, and others, took the bait and made the new development a successful residential neighborhood that thrives today even more than it did in the 1960’s.

While other developers came into play over the years, building other neighborhoods in the area over the last few decades, Gunbarrel Green continues to be one of the core neighborhoods of high demand for many reasons.

There’s a trend of remodeling going on through the area as people rediscover what a desireable location most of the Gunbarrel community can be. It’s full of custom homes, many of them with great views of the foothills and mountains, and many also bordering on the golf course of the Boulder Country Club.
