"An Older Suburb of Denver"

Edgewater lies just west of Sloan's Lake in north Denver. This suburb has been around for a long time and has many long time residents still living here after many years, giving it a real sense of community. Most of the homes are older and were built in the 1950s although some date back to the beginning of the century. Although these homes are much older than in some neighborhoods, they still command a pretty price. Some of the smaller two bedroom/one bath homes go for over $200,000 while the larger homes can get upwards close to $450,000 mark. The streets are lined with old, large shade trees which are very nice in the summer time. However, since many of the homes are older they don't come with garages, so there is a lot of cars parked on the street.

Although there really aren't any restaurants within the borders of Edgewater, other than a Taco Bell, there are a lot of choices for both shopping and dining very near by. Some of the main roads near the suburb are major arteries, such as Sheridan and Colfax, which can get very busy during peak travel times. For those who like to head into the mountains, heading up Colfax to I-70 is a pretty straight shot and can get you to skiing within a decent time frame.
Pros
  • community feel
  • Sloan Lake
Cons
  • traffic on surrounding streets

HeatherS I really like Edgewater and the old trees make it feel more like neighborhoods back east more than many other Denver suburbs/neighborhoods

"Edgewater is a really nice neighborhood just west of Denver"

Edgewater is a small neighborhood west of Denver and on the western shore of Sloan Lake. The Lake (which is almost as big as the neighborhood itself) gives character to Edgewater and is a great meeting place for picnics, walking, jogging being with the kids and biking.

The historic shopping and dining area of 25th Avenue really is a great street. Unlike many other Denver suburbs 25th Avenue and the lake give Edgewater a center. I like that the community is not centered along one long strip mall or one highway neighborhood after another like in Lakewood for example.

The few times that I have visited my friends in Edgewater there was area sense of community lost sometimes in Denver suburbs. People like to walk and talk about the many small businesses in the area, the view of the city lights on the lake at night and what people are up to.

Edgewater seems a top notch place for families or singles wanting to live just outside the city.
Pros
  • community feel
  • Sloan Lake
  • 25th Avenue businesses
