We moved into the up and coming community of Leyden Rock last July. Leyden Rock is a 1,033 acre, 1,439 home master planned community located near the foothills of Arvada, Colorado. The community features over 600 acres with 60% of the land dedicated to parks and open space. Modern amenities include three neighborhood parks, a community center with pool, sports courts, play areas and over 19 miles of trails.

My husband and I lived in Lake Arbor, Arvada for 20 years and we were ready to move into a new home. When we purchased our home in Lake Arbor, it was just built and ready to go.  Our new home in Leyden Rock has been constructed from the ground up. We chose our lot and built a Ranch with a walkout basement. Leyden Rock and Leyden Ranch are west of Indiana and 80th Avenue and very close to Highway 93. We wanted a city and mountain view. When we chose our lot, it was the last available with city and mountain views, so we grabbed it. My husband has always wanted a city view and twinkling lights at night.

Leyden Rock Plan

 Leyden Rock Plan

As a Realtor, I learned a lot about new construction from the Buyer’s perspective. We lived with construction for over a year, and it was harder than we ever thought. The lack of privacy, noise 24/7, trash and debris everywhere and dealing with warranty issues was maddening. We still have construction vehicles up and down our street daily. Despite the inconveniences, we have settled in, and our neighbors are friendly. Leyden Rock has a social committee that organizes events for the community, and there is an online community called NextDoor.com. The website allows for real-time alerts for lost dogs/cats, events, issues to discuss and stuff for sale. It draws the community together!

We made a great decision! Property values are climbing as the community continues to build. We are now in the new zip 80007, and we love it! Statistics by HomeSnap rank the 80007 zip code as the 188th-wealthiest zip code in Colorado with a median income of $109,028 per household. The population is considered younger than most with a median age of 43 years.

At the same time, the average list price of available homes is $554,256.
