Once referred to as Dry Pond and to this day often called by its nickname, the "Denver of the East," Denver, North Carolina offers rich history, a comfortable climate and a friendly neighborhood feel and vibe all at once. With an abundance of homes available in a broad range of price ranges, Denver offers something for buyers of all budgets and preferences.
Situated comfortably along the western shores of scenic Lake Norman, Denver is a northern suburb of Charlotte, also known as the Queen City. While Denver’s roots are more historic and "small town" in nature, neighboring Charlotte is rapidly establishing itself as one of the East Coast’s most desirable locales, and residents of Denver get to reap all the benefits of this distinction, but few of the downfalls. Fans of football, NASCAR and good old outdoor recreation are sure to flourish in and around Charlotte, a city that boasts an active, engaging population, and an enviable climate year-round means there are even more opportunities to live, work and play. With world-class restaurants, golf courses and shopping opportunities and several of its own professional sports teams within city limits, Charlotte is an entertainment mecca for those with all types of interests – and it’s only a hop, skip and a jump away from Denver.
Stunningly beautiful homes line the eastern side of Lake Norman, while more modest options are available along the lake’s western shores. New development projects in and around Denver are making the region an increasingly desirable place to live, and home values are expected to rise as more and more people flock to the burgeoning Charlotte and Lake Norman area. For those who desire all the best attributes of the big city but still prefer to go home at night to a place with stunning, lakeside scenery, an enviable small-town feel and an undeniably close sense of community, Denver makes the grade.
