Sedalia Real Estate Information

A tiny little old railroad town that lies right at the junction of highways 85 and 67, Sedalia, Colorado, is about 10 miles west of I-25 and about 35 miles south of Denver in the north-central region of Colorado. As of population estimates from July 2007, the town was home to just 318 residents who had an estimated median household income of just over $40,000.

The nearest hospital to Sedalia is 15 miles away, in Englewood. There is one elementary school, Sedalia Elementary, and students are bused out to nearby towns for middle and high schools in the same district.

The most notable attraction in the town is the Cherokee Ranch & Castle, which sits on land that was originally the Flower and Blunt homesteads in the late 19th century. A family with the surname Johnson moved out to Colorado to buy the homestead in 1924 and constructed the Scottish-styled castle. The family then sold it in the 1950s. Today, the land is owned by a Douglas County conservation easement and it includes more than 3,000 acres of land. The castle is now a cultural and educational center that hosts a variety of activities, including a performing arts series, tours, afternoons teas and visits to the ranch, where cattle are still raised.

Sanctuary Golf Club provides those who enjoy getting out on the greens and shooting a few rounds an opportunity to play during the sunny Colorado days. With the capital city of Denver just 35 miles away, residents here are within easy distance of all the amenities of a big city, and its surrounding suburbs, including retails areas, major franchise sports teams, medical centers, airport and railway stations, a variety of cuisine and amusement options and more. The town is also within a couple hours of a number of top-quality ski areas and resorts.
