Englewood is an older area just eight miles south of downtown Denver Colorado. The close proximity of downtown metro and the excellent public transportation system make Englewood homes popular with buyers who commute to Denver. In addition, this location is convenient because of its walk-ability. You can walk to the public library, the RTD railway station, shops, malls, and Englewood City Center.
Englewood homes are more affordable than those in some of the surrounding communities. The average sale price for all houses is about $325K, but real estate prices go up as you wander into Cherry Hills on the east side, or Littleton to the west. Englewood’s city boundaries are “intertwined” with those of neighboring communities. You can drive one block from Englewood into Greenwood village, and one block later be back in in the previous city. This means that affordable Englewood homes are close to some of the most expensive neighborhoods in the nation, but are still priced sensibly. All of this makes the Englewood CO real estate market a good value in a community with a small-town atmosphere.
The Englewood MLS inventory is dominated by a large number of older homes, many which were constructed after WWII. Choices include vintage Craftsman-styles homes and bungalows boasting traditional features such as oak hardwood floors, ornate mill work, and arched doorways. It seems more homes with red brick exteriors are seen here than other parts of the greater Denver area. Complete home renovations are commonplace here. Virtually all of the houses in town have full basements that can be used for storage or converted to livable areas.
Life in Englewood
Englewood always has been a focal point for education and the arts. It is also an epicenter of regional economic activity. The robust business climate has created more jobs and businesses per square foot than any other city in the Rocky Mountain region. An excellent transportation infrastructure has played a large part in Englewood’s commercial development. Englewood Center City sets the national standard for mixed-use transit development. Englewood Station (RTD’s light rail and bus transit hub) is a large component of this development.
Englewood is brimming with arts, entertainment and recreational activities. The historic and newly refurbished Gothic Theatre is just one case in point. Community leaders here have been proactive in promoting art display and numerous performance arts.
