Louisville Real Estate
Louisville, CO Real Estate Listings
The town of Louisville, CO was a coal mining town through the 1950s, and retained enough of its old western downtown to create a nexus for urban attractions that have become a major resource for the community today.
Now Louisville real estate has been twice named at the very top of CNN/Money Magazine’s List of ‘Best Places to Live’ in the U.S. – reflecting assets like great recreation, good schools, colorful dining and shopping, and of course much more attractive pricing in comparison to Boulder’s, just five minutes northwest.

Louisville Real Estate
The Louisville real estate market has been attracting spillover development from Boulder as early as the 1980s. Tom and Caroline Hoyt, founders of Boulder-based McStain Communities, began developing Davidson Mesa, the high ground west of Louisville’s downtown – venturing creative residential concepts such as solar homes that had a Boulder semblance.
A golf course master plan arrived at Coal Creek Ranch, bordering the Denver-Boulder Turnpike; followed by the arrival of Richmond American Homes’ Rock Creek, across the Turnpike in the smaller coal town of Superior, putting the area in the spotlight during a Denver Metro Parade of Homes. All of those resale communities represent places to live today that are just ten minutes via the U.S. 36 Turnpike from Boulder’s office campuses along Foothills Parkway, at prices well below those for comparable product in the city of Boulder.
Not surprisingly, the number of Louisville homes for sale continued to grow right through two major market downturns in Colorado – gaining polish even during the sharp recession following 2008, which saw uncanny sales at two new neighborhoods: Indian Peaks, developed by a successor company to McStain; and Steel Ranch, with homes by Ryland Homes and by innovative low-maintenance patio ranch builder Boulder Creek Builders, based in Louisville’s historic downtown. Those neighborhoods are the very last single-family home sites within Louisville city limits – enjoying their access to the popular dining and to Friday night concerts and art walk held during summer in downtown.
