Northwest Denver, bounded by I-25 to the east and 6th Street to the south, offers a wide array of housing, including condos, single-family homes, townhouses, cottages, and the Victorian mansions of the Stonemen's Row Historic District.

The northwest section of Denver is made up of a collection of distinct neighborhoods, each with its own history, cultural mixture and unique living spaces. Below are just a few of the most popular places to find northwest Denver real estate:
- Berkeley - Denver's Berkeley neighborhood is located just west of I-25 and just south of I-70. The area is noted for its two recreational lakes and plentiful green spaces. Berkeley's Tennyson Avenue shopping district is home to a collection of art galleries and boutiques as well as a monthly Art Walk. Real estate here includes cottage-style homes, modern condo complexes and historic brick, multi-family dwellings.
- Chaffee Park - Chaffee Park, bounded by I-70 to the south and Federal Boulevard to the west, is a small, urban community of around 3,800 residents. Most of the housing stock here consists of single-family homes built shortly after World War II. Landmarks in Chaffee Park include Zuni Park, home to numerous free summer concerts.
- Highland - One of the fastest-growing neighborhoods in Denver, Highland sits directly northwest from downtown. Housing in this northwest Denver real estate market runs the gamut from restored, historic, 19th century single-family homes to modern, high-rise condos to converted warehouses and lofts. Highland is currently one of the most sought-after areas to live in Denver. Highland is noted for its diverse collection of ethnic restaurants.
- Jefferson Park - Located across I-25 from downtown, the Jefferson Park neighborhood sits on a bluff overlooking the city. The neighborhood, named for the park of the same name, has experienced a resurgence in the last decade, with new money being invested in green spaces, trees and streetlamps. Housing here ranges from late 19th century, single-family homes to mid-20th century apartment buildings transformed into condos. Jefferson Park is becoming one of the "hot" neighborhoods in Denver, in part because of its close proximity to downtown.
- Regis - Sandwiched between Regis University and Willis Case Golf Course, Denver's Regis neighborhood features a mixture of students, families and older residents. Housing here consists of mostly single-family homes, many of which are older homes, built just after World War II.
- Sloan Lake - Named for the 177-acre recreational Sloan's Lake, the neighborhood of Sloan Lake sits on the western edge of the Denver city limits. The neighborhood is a largely working-class neighborhood with a combination of 1920s cottage-style homes and post-war ranch-style homes. Sloan Lake hosts Denver's Dragon Boat Festival each summer.
- Sunnyside - Denver's Sunnyside neighborhood is located between Chaffee Park to the north and Highland to the south. This neighborhood, just two square miles in size, offers tree-lined streets and historic homes, many of which were built in the 1930s. Sunnyside also has easy transportation access to points all over town.
