Welcome to Cherry Creek South

Just south of Cherry Creek (the actual creek) from the Cherry Creek Shopping Center, Cherry Creek South features luxury gated communities, some new construction, a variety of high-rise condos, and easy access to Cherry Creek North through a hike-and-bike bridge over Cherry Creek.

Not really an official neighborhood, Cherry Creek South has a distinct flavor, which is why it stands 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 as a separate area, especially for those hunting for a home in the Cherry Creek market.

The area also has more mainfloor master bedrooms, something not as common in Cherry Creek North homes, which tend to be more vertical, and a major neighborhood attraction.

Additional Details

Unlike in Cherry Creek North, single-family homes in Cherry Creek South are primarily detached, many of them part of private or gated communities. The single-family homes are often patio homes with smaller yards — providing urban, low-maintenance living. Another differentiator are the two high-rise condos located along Cherry Creek.

Detached homes go for between $1 and $3 million while area condos, located primarily along Cherry Creek South Drive in high-rise buildings, go for from $500,000 to $2.5 million. The neighborhood also has a handful of lots where buyers can design and build custom homes, a very attractive opportunity for the area.

The neighborhood’s highlight is the Cherry Creek bike path, which courses along its northern border. It’s one of my favorite features of the area, offering a walkability that surpasses that of some Cherry Creek North homes.

Cherry Creek in this area also has a major area renovation plan that will tie the waterway more closely in with the back of Cherry Creek Shopping Center, bring new bridges, a plaza and a water feature. In short — the creek here will be redesigned to more closely integrate Cherry Creek South and North with the waterway as centerpiece. This will increase Cherry Creek South’s appeal.

Who lives here

Those looking for easy urban living within walking distance of Cherry Creek North. Residents value the smaller-yard lots, which makes for easy maintenance.

More homes in the neighborhood also offer main floor master bedrooms than other area neighborhoods, an attraction for older residents who want to bypass stairs as they age.
