Pheasant Run

Young Professionals & DINKs/SINKs

We normally break out Young Profs and DINKs/SINKs but Aurora is such a suburban family vibe place we’re going to pick a couple neighborhoods that trend younger if you’re not yet or ever plan to be in family mode. The average Pheasant Run neighborhood resident is 31. This is largely due to the wide selection of shopping and places to eat. It also has a hospital, large vet clinic and grade schools that employ young people who crave living close to work.

Seven Hills / Sterling Hills


Seven Hills pulls in young and established families who love the housing options, amazing parks/recreation centers, and great schools. You’re also a long walk/short bike ride from the Plains Conservation Center, an outdoor education center with 1,100 acres of prairies, hiking trails and conservation events.

Sterling Hills is an alternative neighborhood to look at if you're interested in a step up into the high life for families. The neighborhood has big beautiful homes, that sit along winding roads, with great schools but also offer easy access to tons of shopping. Another big plus - it sits just 20 minutes from downtown Denver for the commuters in the family.
