Situated in the central portion of Denver’s southeastern quadrant, with convenient access to major avenues of transportation including Colorado Boulevard and Interstate 25, Cherry Creek real estate speaks well to the idea that location is key. Named for the picturesque Cherry Creek, which runs along its southern border, this attractive and thriving neighborhood is home to more than 100,000 residents who enjoy urban conveniences, in a suburban setting. The nationally renowned Cherry Creek Shopping Center, anchored by fashion and luxury goods retailers, Saks 5th Avenue and Neiman Marcus is located here, serving as both cultural and financial namesake.
Over the past decade, large parcels of prime real estate in this community have changed hands, and as a result, many of the more modest properties, built prior to World-War-II have been replaced by luxury condominiums, town homes, and single-family residences, in an array of architectural styles.
Cherry Creek is actually divided into more than one neighborhood. Cherry Creek South is a prestigious residential setting, located south of 1st Avenue, between 1st Avenue and Cherry Creek Drive North. “Preferential” might best describe this area, where single-family homes, high-rise residences, gated town home communities and condominiums, dominate. Given the quality of life here, the expensive nature of real estate can be forgiven.
