Although planned communities can be somewhat faceless, Lowry is a well-placed treasure overlooking the misty mountains. Architecturally diverse in almost every way, the neighborhood is set up like a small city with condos, townhomes, duplexes, flats and patio homes hugging the retail/office district in the middle, and two single-family communities in both the southwest and northwest corners.
These communities are defined by typical neo-eclectic suburban housing and a kind of throw-back architecture that mimics more classic city-styles such as Victorians, Denver squares, Tudors, Tuscans and bungalows. However, more than just a recognizable flair here-and-there, these Lowry homes for sale in Denver are classic meets modern in a stylized intersection of past and future. In fact, the overall tone of the neighborhood seems to be one of incorporating the history of the area. Everywhere are reminders of what used to be. For example, huge airplane hangars on one side of the street influence the urban-chic Hangar Lofts on the other; an old brick power plant is transformed into the Steam Plant Lofts and the huge yellow-brick Grand Lowry Lofts were once home to the Works Projects Administration and a summer vacation retreat of President Eisenhower.
Aesthetically, the neighborhoods are somewhat varied, from the wider streets and plots of grass between the sidewalk and the road, to the thinner streets and sidewalks adorning some of the more private loft- and patio-home areas. Overall the area is wide-open with small trees planting a sense of a great future. Lowry homes for sale in Denver are listed with zip codes which include 80231.
The Lowry neighborhood is a place where anything is on-hand, from playgrounds to retail, basketball courts, museums, theatres and even a golf course. Although not historic in the sense of South Gaylord Street or South Pearl Street, Lowry has tons of walk-to spots like the Lowry Town Center with the all-important Albertsons grocery, breakfast delight The Delectable Egg and delightfully refreshing Squeeze Juice Bar. There’s also the John Hand Theatre and the Colorado Free University along Red Cross Way, the Rampart Campus (a mini office park made from revitalized Air Force classroom buildings and an airplane hangar) and the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum occupying two enormous former hangars. In addition, the Mira Vista Golf Course, the Lowry Sports Park and the Big Bear Ice Arena have everything from baseball and soccer fields, basketball courts, a skating arena and golf course. Quebec and Havana Streets (just to the east) are two major thoroughfares leading to I-70. Contact the Neir Team today to find Lowry homes for sale in Denver.
