1. How did you choose your neighborhood? We were here for a house hunting trip and had heard lots of good things about Stapleton. We liked the vibe of the community, so it made it easy!
2. What is your favorite feature of your location? New construction – low maintenance.
3. How long have you lived in the area? 1 year
4. Where is your favorite local spot? Jim-N-Nicks. I grew up in Birmingham, AL where Jim-n-Nicks is a local chain. When we were here on our HH trip, I saw it pull up on Yelp. I told David that there was no way it was the same Jim-n-Nicks, but sure enough…it was! Come to find out, Denver is the only western city where they have locations!

My Clients and Their Neighborhood – Washington Park

1200px-Washington_Park_Denver

Washington Park neighborhood is one of Denver’s oldest neighborhoods, and continues to be one of its most popular.  Developed in the late 1800’s, the area around the large park grew to be one of Denver’s most attractive areas because of the location and the fun outdoor activities that are available. Now, filled with classic Bungalows and Victorian-Era homes, Washington Park remains highly desirable due to its central Denver location and surrounding shopping, dining and entertainment options. The Cherry Creek North district is close by, as well as Bonnie Brae and Belcaro. South Gaylord Street sits in the neighborhood with tons of fantastic local restaurants and shops for everyone to enjoy, and of course the ever popular “Wash Park” provides year round recreation options.

Silverman family

1. How did you choose your neighborhood? With our kids approaching elementary school age we were looking for a neighborhood with good schools, a strong sense of community, closer proximity to their expanding set of activities and to reduce Amy’s commute time. We had heard really positive things about Heritage Greens, which is an established neighborhood with a nice mix of young and older families and then found the perfect house. It ended up being a no brainer and the best decision we’ve made for our family.

2. What is your favorite feature of your location? The pool and tennis courts – really brings the community together as well as a number of fun social activities. We both have picked up tennis again and our kids participated on the swim team the last two years. Also, nice having South Suburban golf course in our backyard. It’s like country club living without the dues.

3. How long have you lived in the area?  Two years.

4. Where is your favorite local spot?  Big Bills Pizza and Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt – Great combo for a family night out.

5. Use one word to describe your neighborhood. Social.

6. Is there anything else you wish to share about your neighborhood?  We also enjoy the proximity to a number of parks, the High Line canal, shopping and restaurants at the Streets of Southglenn and Park Meadows. And, we have easy access to I-25, 470 and the light rail.

Baker is a historic neighborhood located adjacent to the South Platte River bordered by 6th Ave to the north, Alameda Ave to the south, Broadway to the east and I 25 to the West.  An area of approximately 30 blocks in the Northeast corner of Baker was granted historic district designation in 2000 as part of the Historic Preservation effort of the City of Denver.  The neighborhood includes hundreds of 19th century brick houses and 39 buildings by locally famous architect William Lang.  In the 1970s, Denver named the neighborhood after Baker Junior High School (now Denver Center for International Studies) which had been named for turn of the century University of Colorado President, James Hutchins Baker, who lived in the neighborhood.  Baker offers a mix of industrial, residential and commercial properties along Interstate 25, while the area along Broadway consists mostly of shops, restaurants, and offices.  The former Gates Rubber factory to the south includes several big box stores and is the site of a major redevelopment project that is bringing a new look and vitality to the neighborhood.  In addition, Daily Park is the second largest in the neighborhood, and Baker is served by several bus lines and two light rail boarding stations.
