"An older Denver suburb"

Sheridan lies right off of Santa Fe Drive and Hampden (285) southwest of Denver. Although Santa Fe, Federal, and Hampden are typically very busy streets, most of the side streets aren't as congested and hectic. This is a busy area of town, although there are golf courses and parks all about. There are some streets with fabulous older trees, probably dating back well over 100 years. When I think of Sheridan, I typically think of a well established, older neighborhood. Just to the west of Sheridan is Ft. Logan cemetery, and you'll also find Mullen High School here, a private high school that started back in 1931. Although it started as a strictly boys schools, girls were allowed to attend in 1989. Mullen is known as one of the best academic high schools in the state. They also have a great football program and have made it to state numerous times.

Overall this older Denver suburb has a lot of good amenities nearby. There are some great hospitals (Swedish and Craig's), a really great YMCA, close access to the mountains, and numerous places to shop.

Many of the houses here are on the smaller side compared to today's standard. Many are made of brick and have been around for well over 50 years, and due to their quality construction will probably be around another 50 as well. A lot of the homes here have detached garages, which look almost as if they were an afterthought (maybe they were?). There are a lot of long time residents living here and many friendly folks have known their neighbors for years.
  • older, quality built homes
  • quick access to the mountains via 285
  • a little run down looking in some areas
  • high traffic streets
