Cherry Hills Village–Country Living Close to the City

Say you’re in the market for a high-end, one-of-a-kind home that’s reasonably close to downtown. You’re not the horse-property type, nor does your inner hipster insist on chic downtown condos or lofts. Other Denver Metro neighborhoods you’ve seen are a bit too suburban, or  many of the homes you’ve seen feel crowded despite their stately architecture and grandeur.

If this sounds like you, look no further than the homes for sale in Cherry Hills Village. This area feels spacious and country-like with its gracious homes and low-density, large lots. Cherry Hills Village is only about 8 miles from the downtown Denver and is quite close to many of Denver’s main attractions. If you’re moving soon, you owe it to yourself to look at Cherry Hills Village homes for sale.

With schools in the coveted Cherry Creek School District–consistently rated among the top-performing schools in the country–families with school-aged children make up nearly half the community, which was chartered as a home rule municipality in 1945. A mix of elegant older homes and those boasting gracious contemporary architecture also help create a neighborhood feel of community with individuality. There are also a wide variety of excellent private schools in the area.

Like golf? The Cherry Hills Country Club has hosted two PGA Championships along with a U.S. Women’s Open. But that attraction is just for starters. Washington Park (we locals call it Wash Park), named as one of the Great Public Spaces in America by the American Planning Association, is nearby. So is the Denver Botanic Gardens, the 80-acre Denver Zoo, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and the Denver Art Museum. And that’s only the beginning.

In addition to the city’s most interesting places, you’ll find that unique shopping, the best restaurants, and the most popular hotspots are reasonably close. Put everything together, and that’s Cherry Hills Village. Contact a Cherry Hills Village REALTOR if you’d like to know more about this exciting community.
