I have lived in the metro area for a long time. One of the areas, that I fine fascinating is the Applewood area of Wheat Ridge and Lakewood, East and West of Youngfield. The Homes are so beautiful, with many more trees than other suburbs of Denver. There is a reservoir of of 27th east of Youngfield with a park, wow!

The shopping center on Youngfied is old but now in a way modern because it is built with stores separated into little pads. It has the largest liquor store in Denver, Applewood, (at least it was the largest for years) with a great wine selection.

Beautiful Homes west of Youngfield and yet it is cut by I-70. Golf Courses, Nice little churches, access to the Denver West Park by way of 20th avenue. This is the best looking business park in Denver, many trees, unique buildings and the homes around are just perfect.

It has access the to Wheat Ridge greenbelt--a huge line of parks, rushing waterway, many lakes--great place to bike.

I know this is one area that newcomers would never know about. What I would like to know from Denver Residents who have been here for a very long time, what is the perception of this area, how was it developed ????


It is certainly a highly priced area for homes. The homes appear to have been built in the 1960's and for that time they were exquisite. They are in very lush treed subdivisons, with little ponds.

I think this a great area to live because of the shopping center, a RTD transportation center--parks, water, access to Golden--
I would live there---What do you think?

Default Applewood is very nice!

Yes, you've discovered a little treasure on the western side of the city. Applewood is very idylic with wonderful tree-lined streets, great parks and outstanding schools. Prices are higher because it is a unique area with houses that continue to appreciate. Many houses, in fact are in the process of being remodeled -- people would rather have the location than some huge house. The proximity to Golden and the interstate is convenient as well.

We expect this area to gain more attention when the new Cabelas goes in off of I-70 and Hwy 58.

Yes, I heard about the new Cabelas, I wonder if this will change the character of the area with tremendous increase in traffic. I have been by the area and I can see the construction site and it appears new exit off of 58. It is also proposed to increase the traffic on 32 and I wonder how that will work with the bottlenecks on Youngfield at the Walmart.

Here's a photo tour I did of Applewood, the "Denver West" business park, Colorado Mills mall, and a little bit of West Colfax Ave. I believe most of these pictures are within the city of Lakewood. I recommend clicking the "Slideshow" button once you follow the link to my flickr page.

I've just recently discovered this area too. There are some beautiful mid-century modern houses there. A friend of mine kept telling me about one that a friend of his grandfather built and that I needed to go see it. Unfortunately I discovered too late that is was just torn down to built a huge, sort of Neo-gothic monstrosity. Hopefully people with taste prevail and it will stay a cool neighborhood.
