Watkins, CO Homes for Sale
Watkins Real Estate
Watkins Colorado, 25 miles east of Denver is an unincorporated town in Adams County Colorado, and it seems they prefer it that way.
In an effort to avoid annexation by the City of Aurora, Colorado, which surrounds Watkins on three sides, the town incorporated briefly in 2004, then voted to dissolve the action 2 years later.
Residents in this small town of roughly 2700, savor the pleasures of small town western living, clean air, and friendly neighbors. But don’t be fooled by the annual flea markets, rodeos and summer festivals.
Property lots in Watkins are commonly measured in acreage. 6 bedroom single-family homes on horse property, with lofts and stone fireplaces can be more the rule than the exception.
Watkins Colorado is clearly committed to well planned development, measured against a reasonable economic vitality. Watkins’ city fathers are set on an improved quality of life for its residents, and in a place where people come first, success will never be far behind.
