The Beauty of Living in Luxury: Golden Neighborhoods

Anyone interested in living the life of luxury in the Denver metro area has surely come across Golden neighborhoods.  Just west of Denver, nestled in the Colorado foothills, Golden offers 24 miles of extensive, interconnected trails. Although the city of Golden is only nine square miles, homes with a Golden address stretch from Genesee and Lookout Mountain, to Applewood and Sixth Ave West Estates close to downtown. Because of the vast land Golden covers, this historic neighborhood appeals to a variety of tastes.

Genesee in the Foothills

A small, unincorporated “bedroom community” west of Denver, Genesee is between Denver to the east, and exclusive ski areas to the west. Located across from Lookout Mountain, Genesee sits at an elevation of 7,648 feet, and is lush with natural beauty, including local wildlife, such as deer, elk, and wild turkeys. With 12 miles of maintained hiking trails and two neighborhood clubhouses, each with a pool, you will never be lacking in things to do.

Lookout Mountain

Lookout Mountain is a foothill on the front range of the Rocky Mountains, its peak reaching 7,377 feet in Lookout Mountain Park. Home to the Lookout Mountain Nature Center Preserve, this beautiful part of Golden is a favorite of nature lovers. The 134 acre preserve is a habitat for black bears, mountain lions, bobcats, mule deer, and elk. The preserve overflows with wildflowers in the warmer months, making it an even more spectacular sight.

Sixth Ave West Estates

Those who can’t decide between mountain and city views are perfect candidates for owning a home at Sixth Ave West Estates. Close to downtown, with easy access to shopping and dining, yet backed up against miles of rugged trails, Sixth Ave West Estates brings you the best of both worlds.

With breathtaking scenery, access to golfing, kayaking, hang gliding, parks and museums, as well as a broad selection of shops and restaurants, Golden sets the benchmark for luxury living. Contact us for information about our featured listings, and let us help you find your future home.
