Although incorporated as a city, Edgewater feels like a small town amid the Denver metro area. Part of Jefferson County, it's south of Wheat Ridge, northeast of Lakewood and west of Denver. Edgewater has a bit more than 5,000 residents and covers only one square mile.
Yet it isn't just its modest size among larger communities that makes Edgewater seem cozy; it's strong community spirit. It is the kind of hometown that didn't give up its volunteer fire department for the services of a professional fire district until 2012. It's also the kind of place where locals chat as they get shaves and haircuts in an old-fashioned barbershop.
So Edgewater real estate comes with history. It offers towering shade trees and a mix of old and new properties. Quaint bungalows and mid-century duplexes mix with modern townhouses and brand new houses on infill lots.
As its name indicates, the city is at the edge of a body of water -- Sloan's Lake -- which was created by accident in 1861 when the farm well of Thomas Sloan became a gusher and flooded 200 acres. In 2014, a new kind of watering hole will open in Edgewater -- the city's first brewpub.
Sloan's Lake is one of Denver's most popular neighborhoods along with its artsy Highlands District just south of Edgewater, which is bargain priced in comparison. Edgewater homes for sale average $145,180 to $266,217. During 2013, their sales stretched from about $80,000 for a 3-bedroom, fix-up house to $400,000 for a 4-bedroom family home.
Edgewater is tiny, but educationally powered by Jefferson County Public Schools and its own branch of the mighty Jefferson County Library. Edgewater, Colorado, real estate packs punch.
