What are the best neighborhoods to buy a home in Denver?
Denver has 78 official regions with boundaries that are not too well-defined. The city can be divided into four regions: North, South, East and West.
North Denver is home to several recreational parks, including Sloan’s Lake Park, Hallack Park and Berkeley Hills Park. Some of Denver’s most famous medical facilities are also situated in this part of the city. Types of homes include contemporary urban condos, a concentration of brick bungalows and some multi-family dwellings.
Five Points is a well-known neighborhood here that stands out as a historic and fast-growing area in terms of development and population. In fact, in the 20th century, this used to be the hottest jazz scene in Denver.
Home to the University of Colorado’s Leeds School of Business, South Denver offers plenty of apartments for students looking to study and work. Washington Park is one of the city’s long-time best places to live and, consequently, is a popular destination on account of its lake and recreation facilities.
South Denver also has an abundance of single-family homes and a few low-rise apartment blocks. There are also some urban townhouses with lovely landscapes. Notably, household incomes here tend to be higher than in many other areas of Denver.
The Denver Coliseum — an indoor arena for sports activities, concerts, exhibits and shows — is situated in East Denver and boasts large attendances for a variety of events. The area’s skyline tends to be somewhat dominated by industrial facilities.
Neighborhoods here include the historic Montclair, which was once called the living model of the American suburban dream. Otherwise, East Denver has mostly low-rise condos with green landscapes for homebuyers who love to be at one with nature. There are also some beautiful traditional bungalows and townhouses here for homebuyers to choose from.
West Denver is generally residential and includes many single-family homes in the form of bungalows. There are also a few multi-family constructions boasting penthouses with elevated views of the surrounding neighborhoods. Note that there are some major employers also located along the interstate roads that cut across the area and connect it to other parts of Denver and Denver International Airport. The mountains are easily accessible from this area, as well.
