The City of Golden has a history much like many other Colorado communities.  Real estate in Golden, Colorado was first established during the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush of 1859 as a mining camp but now is a posh metro/mountain community.  Golden runs along Clear Creek at the far edge of the foothills and sits among several picturesque mesas. Most known for the Coors Brewery which has been around since 1873, Golden is a popular destination for locals and tourists.  If you are ever in the area be sure to check out downtown Golden and nearby neighborhoods such as Canyon Point, here you will find several fantastic restaurants and a bunch of shops.  Below are few of my favorite places to grab a bite to eat and beer in Downtown Golden Colorado!

Discussions of pollution and overpopulation lead to talk about the ozone layer. At times, it can be difficult to see how this directly applies to and affects you in your own personal life. The air quality outdoors should not be your only concern, however.

Indoor air quality is also something important to consider. We spend a lot of time within our own homes, particularly during the winter months of the year. Poor air quality can affect our lives in very real ways. It can lead to the development of asthmatic symptoms in both children and adults. Certain funguses and molds can also initiate the development of dangerous

There have been a lot of commercials coming out lately advertising energy efficient appliances. They talk about how much money you can save, but a lot of these appliances have hefty price tags.

When it comes to home ownership and the real estate market in Golden, Colorado in general, there are so many terms floating around that it’s understandable to want to ignore some of them. When looking to purchase property in a Golden, Colorado neighborhood such as Coal Creek and others, buyers can expect to run into at least some of these terms.

What does it take to make a home green? For some people, the answer is simple. Using recycled materials and finding ways to lower your energy bill are all ways people assume get their house the green label.
