Lakewood CO Real Estate
Bustling at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Lakewood is a unique community and a vital part of the Denver Metropolitan area. Lakewood real estate has always been an attractive alternative to other popular areas in Denver. Located in east Jefferson County with an easy commute to the city, quick access to the foothills of Golden and newly developed downtown district at Belmar Park, Lakewood home owners have a great deal to be happy about.
Approximately 60% of all Lakewood homes are single family detached or semi-detached houses with the remaining homes being lowrise multi-family, townhouse and condominium developments. A small percentage of Lakewood properties are heritage homes built prior to 1940. There are also some post war bungalows, mid-century modern homes, and some new construction, but the majority of homes were built between 1960 and 1979. You’ll find plenty of ranchers with open floor plans and large yards, wide and quiet streets and an abundance of parks and greenspace in Lakewood.
With a heritage stretching back to Colorado’s earliest Gold Rush days, Lakewood has grown to become Colorado’s fourth-largest city, yet still retains much of its small-town flavor. The area is home to a number of great schools operated by JEFFCO public schools including highly regarded Lakewood High. Post secondary institutions in Lakewood include Colorado Christian University and Red Rocks Community College.
