MARTIN ACRES NEIGHBORHOOD
Bordered by Broadway on the west and Table Mesa on the south this neighborhood was built in the sixties on what was the old Martin Family farm. Mostly brick ranch style homes about 1,000 square feet, (unless a basement was included), these homes became a very dense area of student housing in the seventies and eighties and continued through till about 2000 when it slowly converted to entry level first time buyers because of the affordability factor. Now the student population has been reduced dramatically as the neighborhood continues to gentrify and investors who bought in the seventies and eighties cash out. Conveniently located near the Table Mesa Shopping Plaza and the university it has developed into a family oriented neighborhood. Great bike trail access and bus connections make it a convenient location for commuting to work anywhere in Boulder and also a park and ride is close by with bus service to Denver.
