Denver is located on the west side of Lake Norman. This small town has typically been quieter, with a "laid-back" and "easy-going" atmosphere. It has experienced substantial growth in recent years due to its convenient and quick commute to Charlotte (about 30-40 minutes) and access to Lake Norman. New homes and businesses are suddenly popping up throughout the area and several large development projects are now underway. However, Denver still maintains the appeal of a quiet and relaxed little town. With a location that offers easy access to Charlotte, yet still let's you feel "away from it all" with beautiful lake views and a small town atmosphere. It's no wonder that the area is predicted to grow quickly in the coming years. People are beginning to discover the charm of the 'other side of the lake' and in particular, Denver.
Denver appeals to homeowners looking for great lakefront values in a more relaxed atmosphere with emerging dining, shopping and other amenities.Spectacular waterfront neighborhoods include Governors Island, Sailview and Cowans Ford. Many of the residents are content with the absence of lots of traffic and stores, as it makes for a more peaceful community.
