A suburb ofDenverthat offers close proximity to both the hustle and bustle of the city and the endless beauty and openness of the Rocky Mountains, Englewood, Colorado is a haven for today’s outdoor enthusiasts. With a broad range of real estate options for every type of budget, Englewood is a highly desirable option for those who may work in the city, but perhaps prefer a somewhat quieter daily pace.
Located directly south of central Denver and east of the Front Range of the Rockies, Englewood has a lot to offer by its own accord in addition to proximity to the city and great outdoors. A thriving parks system including the likes of Belleview Park, which boasts a playground, walking and biking trails and a seasonal petting zoo and small train designed for children. Pirate’s Cove, an Englewood water park, is a great place to cool down with the kiddos come summer. Englewood is also located along the idyllic and scenic South Platte River, which offers an endless stream of opportunities for exercise and outdoor recreation.
In addition to offering a lot to do, Englewood boasts an enviable climate not at all unlike Denver’s. Contrary to popular belief, Denver’s snowfall often melts within a day or two of falling, and most of the region’s inhabitants maintain their outdoor workout regimens year-round thanks to surprisingly mild temperatures and heavily used, snow-packed trails. Several hospitals exist throughout the Englewood area as well, making the area particularly popular with members of the medical community. Craig Hospital is nationally revered for its work on traumatic brain injury patients, and Swedish Medical Center is also a leading health care employer in the area. When it comes to access to downtown Denver and the mountains, Englewood is tough to beat – and with an increasingly favorable real estate market and an abundance of highly desirable homes for sale, it’s a great time to buy in Arapahoe County.
