Denver’s Country Club neighborhood was developed in conjunction with the Denver Country Club in the early 1900s to provide an exclusive community for the city’s elite families.
The neighborhood was designated a historic historic district in 1990 and remains Denver’s premier neighborhood. Country Club regularly tops lists of Denver’s coolest neighborhoods.
“The location is unsurpassed,” says Craig Hercek, 8z real estate agent. “It’s a small pocket of distinctive, extraordinary homes.”
Why Country Club?
The Country Club largely consists of elite, palatial homes that provide easy access to downtown Denver and Cherry Creek. The neighborhood is quiet, 100-year-old American elms, with wide streets and limited traffic. This area is both walkable and walkable.
“It’s peaceful and gorgeous,” Haracek says.
Neighbors love to decorate their homes for the holidays, especially creating extravagant Halloween and Christmas displays.
“You’re a mile and a half from downtown and close to shopping and dining,” Harcek says. “It has everything you could want in a particular neighborhood while living in the middle of an urban area.”
The Country Club neighborhood offers existing single-family homes including Denver Square homes, a square-shaped, two-story house with a large front porch, and other early 20th-century styles including Gothic, Colonial, and Mediterranean homes. Are included.
While no new construction has taken place, it is common to see top-to-bottom remodels in the neighborhood, Hercek says.
He says that many houses have been in the same family for generations.
Since homes are rarely traded, they do not last long in the market. At any given time, there are 10 or fewer homes for sale with prices ranging from $650,000 to $4.5 million.
Despite the high price point, country club houses typically remain on the market for less than a week.
Who’s going in?
Because homes are larger and more expensive, Country Club attracts buyers who are a mix of coastal professionals relocating to Denver and local buyers who can afford to move to more expensive homes because of the appreciation of their existing homes. Harcek says.
“People who are coming from San Francisco or Silicon Valley and the East Coast are looking for something that offers comparable luxury,” Harcek says. “The Country Club is a standout for those shoppers. It’s the place they love to stay.”
