Community Profile: Bow Mar – Lakefront Lifestyle with Mountain Views

You’ve been asked to relocate to Denver, Colorado, and you’re wondering where to store your boat, snorkeling equipment and water skis while there. Good news! Bring your gear along and look for a home in the small lakefront community of Bow Mar in the Denver metroplex. For some background on this beautiful community, we offer you this guide: Community Profiles for People Relocating to Colorado.

Bow Mar is a small, tight-knit community with approximately 300 homes set on large wooded lots. The community features wide streets and low-profile buildings surrounded by lots of open space and expansive views of the Rocky Mountain Front Range. Add a private recreational lake to the mix, and you have a quiet country setting with big-city amenities at your fingertips.

Many of the homes, when built in the 1950s, reflected the iconic style of Frank Lloyd Wright’s prairie-style architecture, quite appropriate for the Queen City of the Plains. Most are updated or replaced with new construction, so luxury living is the norm in Bow Mar.
