Majestic Rocky Mountain Front Range views, spacious homes, expansive landscaped yards, shady tree-lined streets and first-class amenities—shopping, dining and recreation – define the Belcaro neighborhood.
The Phipps Mansion, home to United States Senator Lawrence C. Phipps during the 1930’s, hallmarks this extraordinary neighborhood, nicknamed Belcaro, “beautiful beloved” in Italian, by Phipps.
Upscale and fashionable, Belcaro is centrally located in the city, providing fast commuter times to downtown, the airport and wide-open access to mountain recreational areas.
Belcaro living puts you in close proximity to the Cherry Creek Shopping District with the most diverse shopping, dining and recreational opportunities between San Francisco and Chicago. Just minutes from your luxury home, you can enjoy:
- A day at the spa
- Art gallery browsing
- A three-day, world renowned arts festival
- A true play park for the kids simulating Rocky Mountain outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, fishing and rafting
- Elegant, gourmet dining, from a quick lunch to client dinner, at restaurants such as Elways or 801 Chophouse for steak and seafood or outdoor cocktails and tuna tartar at Vinue Food and Wine
The neighborhood is close to the Denver Country Club where you can meet up with friends for a round of golf or, if biking is your thing, catch the 11.2-mile Cherry Creek trail for a leisurely afternoon ride.
Be sure to stop by the Singletrack Factory on Gaylord for specialized attention from a locally owned, independent bike, snowboard and skate shop with a knowledgeable staff and mechanics on duty for your convenience.
After a day shopping or golfing, stop by Bonnie Brae Ice Cream at the corner of E. Ohio and S. University. The iconic red and white awning symbolizes a 100-year tradition at this location. Originally a drugstore with soda fountain, then a Dolly Madison, this ice cream shop has kept up with the times and offers two vegan flavors and two frozen yogurts.
