My Clients and Their Neighborhood – Country Club

Country Club

Denver’s Country Club Neighborhood is reminiscent of the English countryside with charming curved streets and expansive lawns uninterrupted by alleys or sidewalks. Originally planned as a single country estate, this elegant enclave boasts some of the grandest estate homes in the city, with large lots and mature trees. Bordered by Alameda, University, 6th Avenue and Downing, the area is centrally located between Downtown and Cherry Creek, providing easy access to countless activities, restaurants and shopping.  But there is little need for a car, as the Cherry Creek bike path runs right through the neighborhood, providing direct access to the rest of Denver.

Please meet Cindi McNabb and find out why she loves her neighborhood:

1.  How did you choose your neighborhood?  We wanted an older historic neighborhood near downtown.

2.  What is your favorite feature of your location?  The old homes are all so lovely and unique.

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

4.  Where is your favorite local spot?  It’s hard to say, there are so many great places nearby but I’ll go with Novo Coffee and Satchels…both within walking distance!

5.  Use one word to describe your neighborhood.  Friendly

6.  Is there anything else you wish to share about your neighborhood?  This neighborhood has a good old-fashioned “neighborly” feel to it. Aside from people being friendly, the neighbors are out and about: walking or working in their yard or chatting with each other or watching their kids play. Weekly “porch parties” are held once a week in the summer in addition to other neighborhood intermittent gatherings throughout the year. Lastly, there are numerous restaurants and shops within walking distance.

If you desire to know more about the Country Club neighborhood, please visit my website and click the “Communities” tab. If you have any neighborhood or real estate questions, I am always available at erin@ruleproperties.com or #303-324-1703.  Stay tuned for next week’s neighborhood feature.

My Clients and Their Neighborhood – Baker

Baker

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.

Please meet Sara and Jake Webb who love living in the neighborhood!

1.  How did you choose your neighborhood?  I was already living in the area as a renter.  A townhome became available and I decided to buy and renovate in 2005.  When my wife and I got married, we decided to stay in the neighborhood because we liked it so much.

2.  What is your favorite feature of your location?  Close to Broadway entertainment.

3.  How long have you lived in the area? 10 years

4.  Where is your favorite local spot?  Irish Rover

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

6.  Is there anything else you wish to share about your neighborhood?  We love Baker and don’t plan on leaving anytime soon.
