Northwest Denver

Northwest Denver, often simply called North Denver, is generally defined as the area west of Downtown Denver, east of Wheat Ridge and Edgewater, north of West Colfax, and south of Westminster and Twin Lakes. 

City developers further subdivide the region into Near Northwest and Far Northwest, based on the area’s proximity to Downtown Denver. 

Northwest Denver comprises around 10 neighborhoods, including some of the most desirable suburbs in the Mile High City. If you’re looking for a more idyllic and tranquil community while remaining close to exciting urban amenities, you will love what Northwest Denver has to offer. 

The Highlands neighborhood is always cited as one of the best places to live in Denver, thanks to its location just across Downtown Denver, as well as its own offerings of stylish shops, galleries, and restaurants. The neighborhood also boasts a wide collection of charming Victorian homes and buildings that adds to its unique appeal 

Southwest of the Highlands is Sloans Lake, a neighborhood built around Denver’s largest lake. The lake is surrounded by the city’s second largest park where you can do a host of activities, including biking, hiking, boating, fishing, or simply catching beautiful sunsets with views of the Rocky Mountains and the Denver skyline. 

There are many other parks in the Northwest Denver area, including Hallack Park, Jefferson Park, Viking Park, and Rocky Mountain Lake Park. The area also boasts a number of historic districts — Packard’s Hill, Wolff Place, Allen M. Ghost, and the Witter-Cofield Historic Districts.

Real estate in Northwest Denver 

Homes in Northwest Denver are a mix of single-family properties, townhomes, and condos. In the Near Northwest area you will find more condos and townhomes for sale than single-family homes, but the reverse is true in the Far Northwest area. A good number of homes are 75 to over 100 years old, excellently preserved and updated with the latest amenities.
