Cherry Hills Village

Cherry Hills Village

Cherry Hills is an affluent and picturesque suburb located just south of Denver. Known for its upscale homes, expansive estates, and serene atmosphere.

Cherry Hills Village is an affluent suburb located just south of Denver. It was named for the cherry tree groves that lined the original town site. Commercial development was rejected in what is now a 6.5-square-mile residential community with over 6,400 residents and is bordered by Hampden Avenue on the north, Belleview Avenue on the south, a combination of Dahlia, Happy Canyon Road and South Monaco on the east, and Clarkson Street to the west.

This area attracts those looking for more land and space. Homeowners love the countryside feel, while staying within close proximity to downtown Denver, the mountains, Cherry Creek, and the Denver Tech Center (DTC). Some choose to live here because the public schools are in the Cherry Creek School District and considered among the best in the state. It also has two of Colorado's oldest private schools, Kent Denver and St. Mary's Academy.

Cherry Hills Village channels the Colorado outdoor lifestyle, with part of the 71-mile High Line Canal hiking trail winding thru the neighborhood, expansive views of the mountains, equestrian centers, and scenic parks with fishing, lakes and ponds. It is also home to Cherry Hills Country Club, which has hosted two PGA Championships, and Glenmoor Country Club. This combination makes it one of the most coveted neighborhoods among luxury buyers.

There are a variety of areas to choose from within Cherry Hills. You'll find micro-neighborhoods such as: Old Cherry Hills, Mockingbird Lane, Cherryridge, Devonshire, Glenmoor, Charlou, Cherry Hills East, Mansfield Heights, and Cherry Hills North just to name a few! Many of the homes range in architectural styles - Cape Cods, Georgians, newer modern homes, sprawling estates, and ranch-style homes - with development that started in the early 1940s.

Some properties have a quaint feel with a minimal HOA neighborhood, while others sit on a golf course, or an equestrian trail, or within a gated communities such as the Buell Mansion or Cherry Hills Park, known for its 15,000 to 25,000 square foot mansions. Entry-level homes sit on about a half acre and start in the $1.5 million range, while the grander estates sit on 1+ acre to 5+ acre lots and larger, and are priced upwards of $8 to $25 million.

Highline Canal

The High Line Canal is a historic waterway that runs through Cherry Hills Village and spans a significant portion of the Denver metropolitan area. You can look at the parks and trail map here: Highline Canal map. It spans over 71-miles and was originally constructed in the late 19th century. It was designed as part of a larger network of irrigation canals to divert water from the South Platte River to provide irrigation for agricultural purposes.

Today, the High Line Canal serves as a recreational amenity and greenway, offering a scenic pathway for walking, jogging, biking, and horseback riding. It winds its way through various neighborhoods and communities, including Cherry Hills Village, providing a beautiful natural corridor amidst urban development. The canal is known for its picturesque setting, with sections bordered by mature trees, meadows, and wildlife habitats. It offers a peaceful and tranquil environment for outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers. The path alongside the canal is mostly unpaved, providing a more rustic and natural experience.

Many residents of Cherry Hills Village and the surrounding areas enjoy utilizing the High Line Canal for leisure activities and exercise. It provides a unique opportunity to connect with nature, explore the outdoors, and appreciate the beauty of the Colorado landscape.
