Homes for sale in Applewood are in a 5-square mile neighborhood that reaches across Golden, Lakewood and Wheat Ridge. This pocket town features mature trees, large lots and family homes is a highly desirable area for people who love the convenience of the city with the feel of a quiet, rural community.
The Applewood area has been a popular spot for generations. It’s close to a lot of newer, large shopping areas as well as smaller, Mom & Pop establishments. In twenty minutes, residents can find themselves either in the mountains or in downtown Denver. Because the neighborhood spans across three towns, parents have a variety of schools to choose from when deciding which is right for their children. Whether you golf, bike, run, swim or ski, Applewood has something for you!
The variety of amenities available is a huge selling point for people looking to move to this area. The architecture is composed primarily of mid-century homes although there are newer, more modern homes being built as well as some condo complexes in the area. Diversity of residences gives homeowners the opportunity to move through different phases of their lives in a small proximity: from a young couple buying their first condo who then move into a small house as they have their first child, then perhaps a bigger home with more bedrooms for more kids and finally a smaller, lower maintenance house as they become empty nesters.
This multi generational aspect gives Applewood the cozy, established feel that permeates every street. The large trees have provided shade for decades, and some of them even bear fruit as the name Applewood suggests. Some families have lived their entire lives in this community, raised their own children and then play with their grandchildren in the same parks.
