My Clients and Their Neighborhood – Speer

speer neighborhood 2

The Speer Neighborhood lays right in the heart of the city.  Bordered by Speer Blvd to the north, Downing to the east, Alameda to the south and Broadway to the west, Speer is surrounded by all of the attractions Denver has to offer.  Broadway has tons of restaurants and night life such as Beatrice and Woodsley, the Irish Rover, Punch Bowl Social and the Mayan Theater.  Washington Park is just to the south and Capitol Hill and Downtown are north of the neighborhood with even more fun city attractions to offer.  Cherry Creek shopping center is easy to access and the Cherry Creek bike and running path leads right through the north end of the neighborhood.  The quiet streets of Speer are attractive to those that want to access and experience downtown living without the noise of city life.

Please meet Bob Wyatt who thoroughly enjoys living in this neighborhood:

“I feel very fortunate to reside in the Speer District near Third Avenue and Logan Street. In addition to great views of downtown Denver and the Front Range, extending  from Long’s Peak down to Pike’s Peak, the condo building where I live is a short 5-10 minute drive from popular attractions such as Washington Park, Cheesman Park, and the bustling Cherry Creek shopping area. It is also a short four block walk to the South Broadway entertainment area and just a few hundred feet from the Cherry Creek hike and bike trail. As if this wasn’t enough, there are a number of fine restaurants and bars along Sixth Avenue, just a few blocks to the north. Speaking of food, there is a Sprouts Market three blocks away and four Whole Foods Markets within a 5-10 minute drive. Two movie theaters featuring foreign and art films, the Esquire and the Mayan, are both within a 10-15 minute walk. The historic South Pearl Street shopping area, with its vibrant Sunday morning Farmer’s Market, is less than a 10 minute drive to the south.  Downtown Denver is also within a 10 minute drive, reached by going either north along Logan or northwest along Speer Boulevard. The neighborhood surrounding my building has a rich historical flavor arising from the presence of many historic homes from the 1890-1930 era, including a number displaying traditional Victorian features. In addition, the Baker District, starting just three blocks to the west, is unique in having so many carefully maintained Queen Anne style homes. In short, the Speer District where I live lies within the heart of the dynamic core urban area, a bit away from the hustle-bustle of downtown, but close to numerous amenities that make big-city living such a pleasure”. – Bob Wyatt

There is a high variety of new homes in Stapleton, from starter condos, mid-sized town homes to large, custom dream homes.  Stapleton residents reflect a wide mix, with young singles and empty-nesters joining a large number of families in this central, rapidly growing area of Denver.

Meet Jenny and Rafael Horton who live in the area:
Jenny and Raf

1.  How did you choose your neighborhood?  We have family that initial drew us to the neighborhood. But, the community feel is what really sold us. Having all the parks, pools, town center and schools was a big selling point for us.

2.  What is your favorite feature of your location?  The proximity to everything! Our kids can ride their bikes to school, jogging and biking trails are just out the door, town center is a short walk, downtown Denver is a short drive, and overall we get in our cars a lot less.

3.  How long have you lived in the area?  We have been here 2 1/2 years.

4.  Where is your favorite local spot?  Central Park for walks, Aviator pool in the summer and The Bistro on 29th for a bite to eat.

5.  Use one word to describe your neighborhood.  Community

6.  Is there anything else you wish to share about your neighborhood?  One of the things we love most about our neighborhood is how social it is. Neighbors want to know each other and hangout with each other. There is a big sense of community. It is not the type of neighborhood where you don’t know your neighbors.

belcaro-2
Belcaro represents the first original neighborhood and is one of the most fashionable and upscale areas of Denver. Many newer, luxurious, custom homes have popped up in Belcaro over the last several years but most residential real estate in Belcaro includes masterfully built, vintage and well established homes. Belcaro enjoys the added distinction for being home to the renowned and historic Phipps mansion, as pictured above. The neighborhood is centrally located, with easy access to Cherry Creek neighborhood and Cherry Creek shopping district.
 
Meet Juliana and Vincent DiPasquale:

1. How did you choose your neighborhood? We were living in Cherry Creek prior and wanted to stay close by, but wanted a yard, more space and a quieter street.
 
2. What is your favorite feature of your location? We really love so many things about our location its hard to pick just one; Bike path, walking to CCN, quiet wide streets, very active and friendly neighborhood. But if we had to pick it would probably be the quiet, peaceful street in a little pocket that we never knew existed.
 
3. How long have you lived in the area? Almost 7 Months.
 
4. Where is your favorite local spot? Definitely the Bonnie Brae shopping center, home to Saucy Noodle, Bonnie Brae Ice Cream, Bonnie Brae Tavern and Katherine’s French Bakery.
 
5. Use one word to describe your neighborhood. Quiet
 
6. Is there anything else you wish to share about your neighborhood? We looked long and hard to find the right location that still met all our criteria. We couldn’t be more happy with where we ended up and can’t thank Erin and her team enough for all their patience, hard work and understanding.
