Nestled just to the West of Denver, Edgewater is a beautiful and quaint area, fit for many walks of life. The unique properties surrounding Sloan's Lake range from bungalow style homes to renovated modern gems. The area is defined by a residential charm reminiscent of the Highlands neighborhood. Families can be seen gathering at the many parks that surround the lake. Joggers are frequently in sight, hitting the paved path that totals 2 ½ miles around the water. Dogs enjoy the fresh air with their guardians while folks dine across Sheridan in the retail and restaurant-rich surrounding blocks.

While the area has not undergone the same art-scene and culinary revival that we witnessed in the Highlands, it is well on track to mirroring it's neighbor just to the east. The surrounding neighborhoods are filled with well-landscaped yards, quaintly decorated porches, art galleries, coffee shops, tasty Thai food and pubs. There are many appealing elements at work in this area drawing in families, artists, young professionals and people wanting to live near the hustle and bustle of downtown Denver, just maybe not in it. It's a quick 10 minutes from downtown, with plenty of RTD routes that get you to the heart of the city. I-70 is only a few minutes to the north, while just to the South, 6th avenue offers commuters a quick option to head east or west. Edgewater's central location proves to yield some great options for getting around town. Whether you want to head west to hit the slopes, or east to hit the town, you won't find yourself behind the wheel of your car for long.

If Edgewater in Denver expects to gain itself a name among the ranks of LoHi and West Highlands, it has a little bit of growing to do. This is good news for folks interested in joining the atmosphere of a neighborhood on the brink of becoming the next best spot near downtown Denver. Sloan's lake offers a touch of serenity and natural wonder to the charming suburban feel surrounding it, icing on the Denver real estate cake for anyone looking to buy in this hip, up-and-coming neighborhood.
