Nestled in Broomfield, Vista Highlands is all about location; at HWY 7 and County Road 7, just 2 miles to the west of I-25. Vista Highlands is bordered on the south by HWY 7 allowing for an easy 20-minute commute to downtown Denver, Denver International Airport and Boulder.
WHAT WE LOVE
There is so much to love about Vista Highlands. The easy access to I-25 enables quick commutes to Denver or Northern Colorado, DIA, entertainment, amenities, shopping, recreation, and schools. Vista Highlands features new homes in some of the most affordable price ranges in north Broomfield. Children’s Hospital Clinic and King Soopers Marketplace are both within easy walking distance. It is a small, quaint community with an extraordinary location. The HOA fees are also low because there is not a recreation center or pool to support.
There are two national builders currently building new homes. One of the builders, DR Horton has approximately 200 home sites and Meritage Homes has about 90 home sites. The community is about half built out with many nice park view sites still available.
Most homes are priced starting in the mid $400s to the $600s. The finishes and sq. ft. of the homes rival many of the higher priced homes in Vista Ridge and Anthem Highlands but at a bit lower price point.
Highway 7 is becoming increasingly congested with traffic and there are more shopping centers, businesses, and amenities to come. The new Top Golf facility, IKEA and The View Sports Restaurant will only add to the congestion. It is great to have such wonderful amenities and shopping facilities but the congestion makes some midday commutes bothersome. Luckily, shopping and medical care are within walking distance.
The acclaimed St. Vrain Valley RE-1J are the schools within easy access to Vista Highlands.
- Blackrock Elementary within Vista Ridge is a newer K-5 elementary school.
- Erie Middle School is brand new for 2018 and
- Erie High School is a school of choice for students in Broomfield, Erie, and Boulder.
There is a school parcel reserved on the west side of the community for a future elementary school. There is also a future park parcel reserved. IKEA is planning a new Broomfield location within one mile of the subdivision providing easy access and jobs within walking distance. More commercial space is reserved along Highway 7, just to the south of the subdivision.
