Good Alternatives to the Highlands:
Are you priced out of the Highlands? or not happy with what’s available for your price point? Don’t worry! There are many other neighboring Northwest Denver neighborhoods that are great alternatives, and just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the Highlands:
Small town feel. Encompassing an area of approximately 1 square mile, Edgewater is it’s own little town, known for it’s welcoming, community character. Located on the western edge of Sloan’s Lake, residents enjoy quick access to this popular lake, along with spectacular views of the Downtown Denver skyline to the East and the Rocky Mountains to the west. Affordable single-family homes, condos, and town-homes dominate the area, with average prices much lower than the Highlands.
Recreational opportunities abound in this neighborhood by the water’s edge. Head out to Sloan’s Lake for some boating and fishing; take the dog and kids to Edgewater Park, overlooking the lake; or play a game of tennis, softball, or horseshoes at one of the area’s several community parks.
It may be small in size, but this community boasts a big assortment of restaurants, shops, and amenities. Of course, if you want to break away to the city for a sporting event, a shopping spree, or dinner and drinks on the town, Downtown Denver is a quick 10-minute drive.
West Colfax, part of the longest-running east-west street in the country, is a unique blend of commercial and residential blocks, possessing a personality all its own. Facing both sides of this renowned street are authentic Mexican restaurants, the infamous Lake Steam Bath Spa, and the national nonprofit youth organization, Girls Inc. In contrast, the northern border, 17th Street, looks out upon Sloan’s Lake, a beautiful wildlife habitat complete with soccer field, flower gardens, lighted tennis court, two playgrounds, and opportunities for boating and fishing.
Between Colfax and 17th Street lies a diverse blend of single-family dwellings and modest ranch-style homes as well as the re-development of St. Anthony’s Hospital. At the southern end, Federal provides anything you might need, from auto parts to enchiladas and dry-cleaning to drive-through meals. Invesco Field, home of the Denver Broncos, as well as I-25 and 6th Avenue, two major Denver corridors, are just minutes away. A unique blend of commerce and community, West Colfax is an interesting and lively place to call home.
Don’t miss Casa Bonita, the most entertaining Mexican restaurant around. Along with a tasty meal from below the border, you’ll watch cliff divers, cowboy shootouts, escaping gorillas, strolling mariachi bands, and more.
Regis square between 52nd Avenue, I-70, Federal, and Sheridan provides students and residents with easy access to I-70 and all the fun that Berkeley and West Highlands has to offer. It’s namesake, Regis University, lies between Lowell and Federal, is a lovely college setting with the brick and brownstone that defines Northwest Denver. This neighborhood provides convenient access to all the shops and restaurants along Federal. Green space also graces the area, including a 25.5 acre park called “Inspiration Point,” which possesses a beautiful panoramic view of both the Denver skyline and the Foothills. Willis Case Golf Course lies to the west, with 18 holes, a restaurant, and a pro golf shop. Regis is mostly residential, and has a diverse collection of homes–from early century brick bungalows and 1960′s-era ranches. Regis possesses and array of opportunities for growth, and is wonderful “up-and-coming” Northwest Denver neighborhood.
There is a charming vibe that distinguishes Arvada from any other place in Denver. Walk to Olde Town where the streets are lined with coffee shops and restaurants that have been there for decades, or hop on the Gold Line, that will soon be able to take you from Arvada, west to Golden, or East to Denver International Airport. There are lots of exciting things happening in Arvada. Convenient to I-70, Arvada is a good options for those that need to be close to the amenities that Downtown offers, or easy access to the mountains, but also love the charm of Northwest Denver.
…and if none of these neighborhoods work for you, let’s talk more! There are more great areas in between and farther out that might be a wonderful option for you, and I am always happy to make suggestions!…
