Bow Mar Reviews

Where do I begin? Between the sailing, tennis and swim teams that I grew up on, I've never seen a closer community. In Colorado, especially around the metro area, it's hard to know your neighbors, and even harder to feel a sense of community. Not the case for Bow Mar. It's one of those everybody-knows-everybody type of places. One where I was called up to babysit for my neighbors every week and one where I could count on the adults in the neighborhood. Kids always play outside. Especially during the summer, there's not a homebody to be found. If the younger kids go to swim team, the older ones will be babysitting or nannying for their families. The market is incredibly competitive to move into the neighborhood because of the noticeable closeness. If you're looking to be unknown or not have any obligations towards neighbors, then this is not the place for you. People in Bow Mar will advocate for the neighbor and help out people in need. In my opinion, best place in the world.

Bowmar sets the standard for Littleton homes. The houses are huge, the yards perfectly maintained, and of course the lake offers exceptional family activities. Just minutes away are the restaurants of old Downtown Littleton and the up and coming shops of both Aspen Groves and South Glenn Mall. Ideally situated off of Bowls Avenue Bowmar's wide streets and family atmosphere is a secluded oasis nestled right in the middle of a bustling town. Thirty minutes from downtown Denver and an hour away from the closest ski resort this town is perfect for rich families that want to enjoy domestic life without the stuffiness associated with most high end neighborhoods.
Bow Mar is such a fantastic area, I have lived here for a few years and love the neighborhood atmosphere, as well as the lake.
