Relaxed residential living in one of Boulder’s most exclusive neighborhoods.


Welcome to Newlands 


Bordered by the quiet foothills and dramatic view of Mt. Sanitas, residents of Newlands are afforded peace and privacy while enjoying quick access to central Boulder and the delights of Pearl Street. Coupled with its gorgeous homes, it’s not hard to see why Newlands has become such a coveted neighborhood.

Many residential properties in Newlands have apple trees from the neighborhood’s beginnings as an orchard in the 19th-century. As the farm was divided up and sold to other owners over the following century, Newlands emerged as an idyllic residential neighborhood of the larger Boulder Community.

Homes in Newlands are considered high-end properties, as the neighborhood is in-demand. All units are stand-alone and range from quaint cottage-style houses from the 20th-century to newer, cutting-edge contemporary homes. With the wide streets and dappled shade from the mature trees overhead, Newlands offers premium residential living. 

What to Love

  • The privacy and exclusivity of this coveted neighborhood
  • The proximity to the foothill’s beautiful nature
  • The friendly ambiance and organic goods of the nearby Ideal Market

People & Lifestyle 

Newlands’ atmosphere is relaxed, quiet, and laid back. The community is tight-knit, and many enjoy close friendships with their neighbors. Residents tend to be wealthy professionals around 35-45 years old, and an increasing number have young families. As with the rest of Boulder, a healthy lifestyle embracing the area’s nature is popular amongst the locals.

Dining, Shopping & Entertainment 

Despite its proximity to downtown’s fantastic shopping and dining experiences, Newlands has several of its own neighborhood-oriented haunts.

Residents head to the Ideal Market Shopping Center, which also functions as a casual meeting point for many neighbors, for a comprehensive selection of organic, high quality, and fresh groceries. Sweet Cow Creamery is a popular stop with its fresh and delicious homemade ice cream during the warmer summer months. 

Eating in Newlands is part of the friendly neighborhood experience, as the area’s best places are clustered together at a nearby intersection. Audrey Jane’s Pizza Garage is a local favorite, with its delicious New York-style pies and cozy atmosphere. For something slightly more upscale, the nearby Santo pays homage to the wild west with flavorful New Mexican cuisine in a rustic setting. Moe’s Broadway Bagels rounds out the area’s dining with classic bagels perfect for a fortifying breakfast before a power hike in the mountains. 

Things to Do 

Relish the glorious biking of Boulder. Appreciate the creativity of local art in the galleries. Take home a new decorative item from Pearl Street. Residents of Newlands have many ways to spend their time, all within walking distance of their homes.

One of the most popular events in Newlands, and all of the city, is the Boulder Arts Week. This week-long vibrant affair starts in late March and celebrates art, community, and performance, which leaves its visitors enlivened and inspired. Later in the summer, the Boulder Creek Festival sets up vendor booths, food, entertainment, and more along the banks of the natural waterway flowing through the city. 

Boulder is an active city, and Newlands residents have many fantastic options to enjoy the outdoors just steps away from their neighborhood. They can climb Mount Sanitas—the dramatic feature that dominates the views from the neighborhood. For the whole family, North Boulder Park features playgrounds, picnic shelters, grills, and more. It would also be remiss not to mention Pearl Street—the vibrant strip of independent stores and excellent restaurants just a short walk south from the neighborhood.


Newlands is home to a number of excellent schools. Top educational opportunities include:
