Welcome to Cherry Creek East

Cherry Creek East is the affordable, 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 its current town home, condo units, so most homes are newer. There are not many detached single-family homes, however.

While residents get access to Cherry Creek North, they face two busy-street barriers to Cherry Creek shopping and dining in 1st Avenue to the north and Steele Street to the west.

Cherry Creek East feels very residential — it’s a little quieter than other Cherry Creek neighborhoods. It also puts residents in the highly coveted attendance district of high-rated Steck Elementary. This school is really great!

Cherry Creek East doesn’t have the hip and edge of Cherry Creek North, but it does have relative affordability. The median home price for the 12 months through Monday was $610,000. Two-bedroom, two-bathroom condos start around $450,000 and three-bedroom, three-bathroom units sell closer to $1 million.

Cherry Creek East provides easy access to the Cherry Creek bike trail, a popular area resource that connects residents to other parts of Denver.

It also has quick access to the great Cherry Creek bike path, a highly desirable trail that joggers and bikers can take into the heart of Denver.

While it doesn’t have the reputation of coveted Cherry Creek North, its off-the-beaten-path vibe is the very reason I love the neighborhood; nondescript, quiet and reserved.  

Residents like Cherry Creek East because it is more affordable than many of the surrounding neighborhoods. Additionally, it has mature landscaped streets that can be walked without dodging cars at every turn. Not to mention parking is a relative breeze.
