Our Core Neighborhoods
Cherry Creek has a number of fantastic neighborhoods including Cherry Creek North, Cherry Creek South, Cherry Creek East, Belcaro, Bonnie Brae, Cory-Merrill and Washington Park. Contact Kristin with any questions.
With the Cherry Creek commercial center at its heart, Cherry Creek North is the tony sibling of the three Cherry Creek neighborhoods. It is exclusive, luxurious, walkable and, dare I say, “classy.” Bound by Cherry Creek (which gives the area its name) to the south, 6th Avenue to the north and University Boulevard and Colorado Boulevard to west and east, it has the price points to match its classy commercial area and reputation.Visit Cherry Creek North
Not really an official neighborhood, Cherry Creek South has a distinct flavor as far as area real estate is concerned, which is why I think it’s important to call out as a distinct market. Many people lump it with Belcaro, but its access to Cherry Creek North and its gated-community and high-rise-condo character distinguish it enough to call it out as a separate area, especially for those hunting for a home in the Cherry Creek market.Visit Cherry Creek South
Denver’s popular Cherry Creek neighborhood actually is made up of three eponymous satellite areas: Cherry Creek North, Cherry Creek South and Cherry Creek East, the most affordable of the three. In short, Cherry Creek East is the smart practical solution for homebuyers looking for low-maintenance living in Cherry Creek’s orbit. Developers replaced the area’s clapboard homes approximately two decades ago with townhomes and condo units, so most are homes are newer. It doesn’t have many detached single-family homes, however.Visit Cherry Creek East
Nestled just south of Cherry Creek South and north of Bonnie Brae, lies exclusive, tiny Belcaro. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in grandeur. While similar to its luxury sibling on its southern border Bonnie Brae, it’s a bit more private with many homes featuring a design flair. Where Cherry Creek North feels hip and vibrant, Belcaro feels secluded and private — providing the rare combination of country-living vibe in the heart of the city.
The neighborhood gets its name from the mansion of Lawrence C. Phipps, who developed much of the neighborhood. Phipps chose “Belcaro” (Italian for “dear one”) as the mansion’s name, but it is generally known as the Phipps Mansion.Visit Belcaro
Charming Bonnie Brae features Tudor- and ranch-style homes, many dating from the ’50s and ’60s, on charming, curvy streets just a few blocks south of Cherry Creek and a few blocks east of Washington Park. Its winding streets give the neighborhood a privacy not found in other Cherry Creek-area neighborhoods. This gives it a quiet, intimate ambience its residents cherish.
Many established Denver families live here — I call it old school Denver. Small, ellipse-shaped Bonnie Brae Park is the neighborhood’s centerpiece. Its shape determined the winding course of streets around it, which gives the neighborhood its intimate, private feel. You won’t find this winding character of streets in any other Denver neighborhood!Visit Bonnie Brae
Cory-Merrill is a neighborhood close to my heart — it’s where my husband and I live with our two young children. In short, we love it! It provides a no-nonsense urban lifestyle and a suburban feel within an urban neighborhood. Cory Elementary, a great-rated Denver Public Elementary school, is located in the center of the neighborhood, and is really its heart.
Families flock to the school’s playground for afterwork playing and meetups. In fact, the neighborhood is named for this school and Merrill Middle School. Regardless of family size, residents love the neighborhood’s connected feel.Visit Cory-Merrill
Over 160 acres, two flower gardens, two lakes, one pond, 10 tennis courts, a croquet field, two playgrounds, one 2.6-mile path for runners, inline skaters, bikers and strollers and hundreds of human and dog weekend revelers on wide fields characterize the heart of this neighborhood: the 100-plus-year-old Washington Park.
The park stretches eight long north-south blocks by four smaller west-east blocks and roughly bisects the neighborhood. Single-family homes predominate on both the west and east sides of the park. However, those west of the park are smaller on smaller lots and have more rentals; homes on the east are larger on larger lots and have more owner-occupied housing. You can see this reflected in the street grid on the map.Visit Washington Park
