  • Affordable and available! Sherrelwood's median home price is $187,911, which makes housing here more affordable than 43% of U.S. neighborhoods -- places it under 69.6% of the rest of Colorado. However, rental prices are higher than 67.7% of Colorado neighborhoods. You can pick up groceries at Save-a-Lot on West 84th. Better yet, you can grow your own vegetables at the Anythink Grows community garden.
  • High demand! The supply of housing is low, and vacancy rates are lower than those found in almost 70% of U.S. neighborhoods, so allow some extra time to find your rental house. Look for town-homes and rentals in smaller buildings, or seek out a rent to own opportunity. Larger 4- and 5-bedroom homes are common, with many of them located on tree-lined streets with an old neighborhood feel. One of Sherrelwood's unique characteristics is that residents love their cars, and many households report having three or more vehicles. Find great rentals off the Denver Boulder Turnpike, east of Federal Boulevard.
  • Positive job growth! Even though Sherrelwood is primarily residential, statistics show positive job growth here. It is considered a good area for teleworking, making it ideal for those who want to work from home and yet be close to the big city -- but not too close. Denver is just 10 miles away, and Boulder is only a 30-minute drive, though, and the average commute time is low, only about 25 minutes.
  • Restaurants! Sherrelwood is really considered "North Denver," but for neighborhood entertainment and good eats, try Las Delicias, where they've been serving up great Mexican dishes for 40 years, or Buckin' Harley's where you can eat, drink, dance, listen to music or perfect your karaoke routine.
  • Indoor/Outdoor Activities! Sherrelwood Park is located right in the center of town and is adjacent to Kalcevic Reservoir, where you can fish or picnic. Another great place to spend some time is the Anythink Perl Mack Library, considered a jewel for all age groups.
  • Educational Opportunities! Innovative programs for children and youth include the Children's Outreach Program for preschool ages and the Global Leadership Academy for PK through Grade 12 students. The Denver North Campus of Westwood College is also located here.
