Living Urban in Denver: Real Estate Blog

Just south of Platt Park lies the Harvard Gulch neighborhood. Often overlooked due to its proximity to Washington Park and Platt Park, most people are pleasantly surprised with all this little neighborhood has to offer.

The epicenter of the area is Harvard Gulch Park, which spans multiple blocks, from Iliff to Harvard Ave., and S. Sherman Street to S. Ogden St., with S. Logan St. running through the middle of it. The park is great for running and volleyball, but also features Harvard Gulch Recreation Center, a great outdoor pool and a 9-hole Par 3 golf course.

Homes in this neighborhood are surprisingly affordable compared to nearby areas. For example, this 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom bungalow with a total of 1,581 square feet is listed for $263,900.

As the weather gets cooler and the leaves start falling from the trees, most people are not thinking "green" like they do when Spring comes around. Yet, this time of year is really one of the most important times of year to take a look at your home when it comes to green energy saving.

Here are a few easy things you can do to be more green going into the fall and winter seasons:

1. Program your thermostat - Most thermostats are programmable, but few people take advantage of this easy practice.
