"A posh neighborhood with a twist"

Denver Country Club is an exclusive, members-only club that caters to the wealthy surrounding neighborhoods. This will give you an ifdea of what the Country Club neighborhood itself is like. It is adjacent to the Cherry Creek business district, Cheesman and Congress Parks, and is a beautiful residential neighborhood. Obviously, it's not cheap.

The neighborhood is adjacent to the upscale shopping district of Cherry Creek, which lies to its immediate east. Smaller businesses lie near the north section along the 6th Ave corridor. The beautiful brick mansions of the 7th avenue parkway contribute to the atmosphere of wealth and beauty in this neighborhood.

Along the western part of the neighborhood, there is more affordable living and shopping. Downing St. has more of the feel of nearby Capitol Hill, which adds some eclectic twists to the country club feel of the streets to the north. Country Club is an excellent neighborhood for anyone who is looking for high-end living and access to shopping and park activities.

There is some fairly heavy traffic here. University, 6th, 7th, and 8th Avenues, and Downing Streets all carry a lot of traffic. Nonetheless, this is not a noisy or unsafe neighborhood. The many adjacent park spaces provide an open and green feel that you might not expect from a central neighborhood, while the nearby shopping and quick access to downtown prevent this area from feeling cut off from the action.
Pros
  • Close to parks and Botanic Gardens
  • Many shopping options
  • Close to downtown and Cherry Creek
  • Elegant, historic mansions

"A Lovely Neighborhood, for Those Who Can Afford It"

Located off of busy Speer Boulevard a few miles southeast of downtown, the Country Club neighborhood takes its name from the Denver Country Club, which is just across the road. The golf course and country club take up a good few acres of prime city real estate along Cherry Creek, and if the club has an air of exclusivity, so does the neighborhood.

Homes here are stately, and the neighborhood is very quiet. It feels, especially in the area near Speer, more than just elegant and shady with mature trees. It feels downright wooded, complete with chirping crickets and the peaceful rustling of leaves – or perhaps that’s just the sound of the money. Houses here are show-stopping mansions from the early 1900s. Towards the west and north, near Downing Street, there are more affordable options, in the form of well-maintained and upgraded craftsman bungalows. In this neighborhood, it’s easy to forget that the bustle of the Cherry Creek area with its shopping district is so close.

Aside from the facilities of the country club itself, there’s no retail, dining, entertainment, or the like in the immediate neighborhood. Country Club is a small neighborhood in size, however, and so close to Cherry Creek, Congress Park, and Capitol Hill that it doesn’t matter. This area is a lovely, leafy refuge for those who can afford it.
Pros
  • Elegant, historic mansions
  • Close to downtown and Cherry Creek
  • Beautiful trees
Cons
  • Out of most people's price range
Recommended for
  • Professionals
  • Families with kids
