Cherry Hills Village is, by far, Denver’s most prestigious suburb. The Village is well known for its rural atmosphere and quality of life. Incorporated in 1945, it’s location is key as its founders were deeply concerned about preserving the magnificent, open countryside … an attitude still reflected by zoning regulations controlling development today.
The Village is home to many of the city’s most luxurious and expansive residential properties, with most located on one to two acre home sites. Exclusivity, combined with an extensive multi-use trail system, which connects to adjacent cities and other regional trails, makes this community truly one-ofa-kind. Cherry Hills Village offers a tranquil setting while providing convenient access to the metro area’s business and entertainment venues. As I take people around the Village, one thing I often notice is that those just becoming familiar with Cherry Hills are confused by the various subdivisions. Each has it’s own charm and each has a distinct feel and flavor. Each of the areas in the map on the left represent very distinct differences in acreage sizes, home types, and land uses (both historic and present).
There are several gated sub areas in Cherry Hills Village: Buell Mansion, Glenmoor of Cherry Hills, Cherry Hills Park and Cherry Hills Farm. Many of the homes in ungated pockets of Cherry Hills are individually gated, providing exceptional privacy and security, but without a formal homeowner’s association (including the cover property).
Over the years Cherry Hills has transformed from a quiet community of horse properties and brick ranches, to a haven of uber-luxurious mansions. Still, there remains a country charm to the Village that can best be experienced when looking at some of the original acreage parcels that remain intact.
