Welcome to Brighton
Founded in the 1870s as a stage/railroad depot and farming community, Brighton is experiencing rapid growth as it emerges as an affordable and popular Denver suburb. While this growth has created more opportunity for residents in the form of industry and restaurant/shopping options, Brighton still holds on to its rich historical roots, cultural diversity, and small-town atmosphere. When you're looking through real estate in Brighton, you'll know you're choosing a great place to call home.
Ideally located with easy access to Downtown Denver and DIA, Brighton sits on the banks of the South Platte River. With many nearby public parks, Brighton homes for sale span a variety of traditional suburban housing choices—from early 20th century bungalows, to mid-century modern ranch-style homes, to million-dollar true ranches, custom-built, with plenty of acreage and horse property.
While Brighton is largely a quiet, family-oriented town, Brighton real estate has benefitted from the city's recent growth—including an investment in the arts, culture and tourism. The Armory has become the region’s premier venue for arts and culture, offering intimate facilities including a community room, outdoor stage, atrium and main auditorium.
