Welcome to Cory-Merrill

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!

Why, you may ask? For the no-nonsense urban lifestyle it offers. It provides a suburban feel within an urban neighborhood.

I love the neighborhood, for taking the kids to the park on Saturday morning to the many schoolfriends our kids have nearby, the walkability to the schools. 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.

Additional Details

The majority of homes in Cory-Merrill are two-story detached single-family houses between 3,500 and 5,000 square feet with a small yard and a two-car garage. Many have three bedrooms on the second story.

It is home to the classic urban home — like the ones the cheesy romantic comedy protagonist lives in, pining away on their second-story bedroom, a window with a leafy street view.

Many neighbors are tight — block parties are a common feature in the summer. Be ready to mix and mingle.

Who lives here

Denver hard-working professionals earlier in their career. Drawn by the top-notch public elementary school, many young families are here, too. The central location, however, attracts residents with other characteristics, too.
