Our Clients and Their Neighborhood – Conservatory Green

Conservatory-Green-Pocket-Park-Small

Conservatory Green was the first Stapleton Denver neighborhood north of I-70. This newer Stapleton neighborhood is physically connected to the rest of Stapleton with bike paths and Central Park Boulevard. It is located 15 minutes Northeast of downtown Denver, and is connected to the rest of the Denver metro area by the recently opened Light Rail line. This neighborhood has a great diversity of homes, walkability, shops, offices, parks, pools, trails and year-round events.  Conservatory Green Plaza located in the heart of this neighborhood is a community gathering spot for concerts, markets, and family events.  There are a variety of restaurants in the area to enjoy with more being built.  There are two community pools, Maverick and Runway 35 for residents to enjoy in the summer months. Stapleton boasts 13 Denver Public Schools, from early childhood education to high school, with one more currently underway.  Stapleton is a very popular Denver neighborhood and its popularity continues to grow as it does too!

This week meet Daniel Dominic who calls this neighborhood home.

How did you choose your neighborhood? In early 2013, I was in the process of relocating to Denver, which meant selling my home in Houston and hopefully finding a comparable one to start roots here.  After looking at an excessive amount of homes over a 4 month period, I decided to begin searching for homebuilders in the area and key in on geographical locations where neighborhoods were being built or expanded.  What attracted me most to Northfield Stapleton was a master planned initiative, an opportunity to build a home from the ground up and location.  At my age, I continually see my friends and colleagues buy into an overpriced older bungalow home in need of much repair just so they can live close to one of the several parks in town.  I on the otherhand, prefer to see my money go farther and like not having to fight for a parking spot close to my home every single day.  In less than 30 minutes you can easily be downtown or at the airport, which also strengthens why Northfield Stapleton is becoming one of the hottest area in Denver.

What is your favorite feature of your location? Between the two new Denver Public Schools less than a mile away as well as the development of several greenspaces, parks and pools, Northfield Stapleton is becoming very attractive for families looking to be close enough to downtown, yet have an ample amount of kid friendly room outside to play safely.

How long have you lived in the area?  I moved into my home in June of 2014 and would not trade it for any other area in or around Denver.

Where is your favorite local spot? As a bachelor, I would have to say either Station 26 Brewery or Stanley Marketplace.

Use one word to describe your neighborhood. Diverse

Our Clients and Their Neighborhood – Country Club

1-denver-country-club-sign

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.

1. How did you choose your neighborhood? We wanted to be a part of a community that had similar values as we do (e.g. celebrate diversity, environmentally-conscious, good school system) and to be away from the city but still be part of it. Having good running trails and parks were also important to us.

2. What is your favorite feature of your location? Running trails/parks and being close to downtown Denver or Highlands.

3. How long have you lived in the area? 5 months

4. Where is your favorite local spot? Near Stapleton – Tables or Stanley Marketplace. Outside of Stapleton – RiNO (e.g., Larimer Street, Central Marketplace, the Populist).

5. Use one work to describe your neighborhood. Peaceful.

Our Clients and Their Neighborhood – Wash Park

Wash Park

The 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.
