"A quiet little area surrounded by growth"

The area known as Foxfield is occupied by only 685 residents, which is few compared to many of the surrounding areas. Many of the homes here are custom and built on a bit of acreage and many of the residents have horses and a few have chickens. Although the two main streets bordering the neighborhood, S Parker Road and E Arapahoe Road, are both very busy, there is a peace and quiet about this neighborhood. As you drive farther east on Arapahoe, you can see the open fields and homes set away from the hustle and bustle of the road. There is also a beautiful new Catholic church along Arapahoe. While there are many businesses near the corner of Parker and Arapahoe, as you get into the development that all seems to melt away. Many of these homes have been here for some years, back before the incredible growth of this area. For residents who have children, they are able to attend one of the best high schools along the entire front range. Grandview is a part of the Cherry Creek School District and gets high marks for both academics and sports, although Grandview is also (unfortunately) known for the snobbery of it's students.

While there is only a couple of restaurants and limited shopping within Foxfield, it is located in close proximity to many stores and grocery shopping at Arapahoe Crossings and the outdoor mall Southlands is just minutes away. Farther east on Arapahoe there is a 24 hour fitness as well as a martial arts studio. Depending on where you are in the neighborhood, there are some great views of the mountains.

Traffic can get really backed up around Arapahoe and Parker Road, although with all the construction they are doing it is helping to alleviate it. As you travel east on Arapahoe three lanes turns into two which eventually merge together and become a single lane. This area of the road is in desperate need of widening. During rush hour and peak travel times it can get pretty backed up as Arapahoe is the only major road going east in this area with many homes.

The median home price in Foxfield is $587,579 which is considerably higher than the state average of $237,800. With the higher home prices come a higher average household income as well. Here it is $104,911 which is almost double the average for the state. The area is predominantly white at 87%, followed by Asian. Many of the residents who live here are executives or work in the professional, scientific, or technical services.

I would recommend this area for families with higher income who want their children to attend really good, solid public schools. Of course, Regis Jesuit HS is just across Arapahoe for those looking for a good, private education. However, for those who don't work nearby or have children, I think there are better deals for housing with views in other parts of the area south of Denver.

"Foxfield in a little known southern Denver suburb"

Foxfield is a nice little community south of Denver just east of Centennial and south of Cherry Creek Reservior. There are only about 800 people who call Foxfield home, it is an area only about 1 square mile straddled between Arapahoe and South Parker Road. However, there are seriously nice homes and big properties in Foxfield. The average household income is just over $100,000 and the homes go for around 1 million. This is a great area if you work in Denver and have the means to invest in a gorgeous big home. The schools are great and everything in the Front Range is within a short drive including the mountains to the west:) There is also a lot of recreational possibilities such as lakes to hike and boat in and golf courses all around Foxfield.
Pros
  • mountain views
  • open spaces
Cons
  • high home prices
