For pure mountain living with big city perks and jobs just down the hill, Evergreen is the low-stress, slower-paced ticket.
The small forested community is surrounded by stunning mountain views and offers a full range of real estate spanning luxury homes to planned communities. Properties rest between 7,000 and 9,000 feet, making for cool summers and snowy winters.
Recreation opportunities abound with road and mountain biking out your front door; fishing, boating and skating on Evergreen Lake; local golf courses and the surrounding 8,000-acre Denver Mountain Parks System—home to one of the largest elk herds in the state.
Downtown Evergreen traces the clear waters of Bear Creek in a ribbon of bistros, boutiques and a rich cultural scene fueled by a colony of local artists.
