Evergreen, Colorado Homes for Sale & Real Estate Information
Individuals and families who are drawn to the mountains and mountain activities (skiing, hiking, biking, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, camping, fly fishing, summer music festivals/art shows and many others) typically decide to live in the Foothills with close access to I-70 which is the gateway to the High Country. Evergreen is located just off of I-70 and represents high end Foothills' living at its finest, yet is an easy commute to take advantage of the amenities of downtown Denver.(more)
Evergreen is 30 minutes to downtown Denver, 45 minutes to the Denver Tech Center, 50 minutes to Denver International Airport and 50 to 70 minutes to world class ski areas. It is known for its excellent public schools being rated by Newsweek in the top 6% of the United States' school districts based on how hard school staffs work to challenge students with advanced placement college level courses and tests.
At an elevation of 7,200 feet, surrounded by pine forests, its climate offers relief from the hot summers, with temperatures ranging from the high 70's to the low 80's; and winters are surprisingly mild, in the mid-40's to 50 degrees. Well established as one of Colorado's hidden treasures, the Evergreen community offers an array of parks, art galleries, theatre, restaurants, entertainment, and more. Evergreen Lake and Elk Meadow Park are Evergreen's crown jewels. Evergreen Lake provides all-season recreational activities such as boating, fishing, birding, ice-skating, art shows and concerts. Elk Meadow Park provides miles of trails for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and horseback riding and is the home of large herds of elk and mule deer. Downtown Evergreen has retained its historical origin and is a motif of a typical old western mountain town with small shops, restaurants and vibrant community activities.
