Cherry Point Properties is based in the Cherry Point Neighborhood in south Denver. In 2008, with a family bursting the seams of his Hilltop/Crestmoor area home, Geoff Hauer, Principal broker with Cherry Point Properties, found himself on a search for the perfect home in the perfect location. Leveraging his years of real estate work in all corners of the Denver Metropolitan area, it soon became obvious that the relatively unknown Cherry Point should be at the top of the list as one of Denver’s Best Neighborhoods!
Cherry Point is an intimate neighborhood of 183 homes, located on the southern edge of Denver, adjacent to Cherry Hills Village. With wide streets, large lots and solid homes that were built to the highest standards in the 1960’s, it has the basic building blocks necessary for a great neighborhood. Combine that with its unparalleled location, with every-day amenities a short walk from your front door, nearby light rail, a vast network of trails and open space just out your back door, and effortless access to all parts of the City, and things start to look even better.
The icing on the cake however, (and what truly makes Cherry Point the Best Neighborhood in Denver!) is the people and the families that call Cherry Point home. Original residents who moved in when the streets were new, established families that saw their children go from playing endlessly in those streets to being bourgeoning young adults, or the influx of new families with young children who roam those same wide streets with their young children in strollers, on bikes or tricycles all the while remarking at their good fortune in finding this neighborhood that they thought didn’t exist in this day and age; it is these people who make Cherry Point the Best Neighborhood in Denver.
About the neighborhood:
Homes – Virtually all of the homes in Cherry Point were constructed in the 1960’s by a small group of conscientious homebuilders. Most of the homes are ranch style of a county ranch design (and a few classic mid-century modern styles). There are a handful of tri-level homes.
Lots – Exceptionally large lots by Denver standards. The smallest lots are in the 12,000 SF range and they go up to 18,000 SF on some of the larger corner lots.
Streets – Wide and smooth, perfect for young children to ride bikes or trikes over to the annual neighborhood picnic! Being located on a slight hilltop, the neighborhood slopes slightly away from its center. That same hilltop affords tremendous unobstructed sunset views for evening strolls or those lucky enough to live on the neighborhood’s westernmost edge. The neighborhood is triangular in shape bordered by Dahilia on the West, Mansfield on the South and Happy Canyon Road on the East. Happy Canyon Road is one of the few streets in Denver to have median planters at intersection approaches. These landscaped planters help calm traffic along this stretch of road and were constructed due to the persistence of the Cherry Point homeowners association in years past!
Nearby Amenities – A truly walkable neighborhood! You can easily walk to Safeway, Starbucks, Core Power Yoga, Denver Pizza, Duffeyroll Café or any of the other retailers located in the Happy Canyon Shopping Center – the walk is just over 5 minutes from the center of the neighborhood – perfect for grabbing a weekend coffee, some forgotten groceries or a tasty Duffeyroll! With easy access to Hampden and I-25 you are just a quick 5 minutes drive to Whole Foods, King Soopers, theContinental Theatres, RTD Light Rail Southmoor Station, Welshire Golf Club, Cherry Hills Country Club, Denver Public Library Ross University Hills Branch, and countless other services! A Super Target proposed for the former Tamarac Square Shopping Center is just a few minutes away.
Access – 15 minutes to most anywhere in the City! Quick access to I-25 lets you pop into Cherry Creek, down to Park Meadows (IKEA opening soon!), or duck over to Pearl Street, Old South Gaylord Street or the Landmark for shopping, dinner or drinks with friends. Right off Hampden/Highway 285 for quick trips to the mountains and mountain bike trails. Not quite transit oriented development, but close – an RTD Light Rail stop minutes from your home provides traffic-free access downtown for work or to Broncos, Colorado Avalanche, Denver Nuggets or Colorado Rockies games (click any of the team names for upcoming schedules), or for concerts and events at DU’s Ritchie Center, Invesco Field at Mile High or Pepsi Center.
Schools – The neighborhood elementary school is Southmoor Elementary, a highly rated Denver Public School, which is just 5 minutes away by car, or, the bus stop is located right in the middle of the neighborhood. Other nearby public elementary schools are Slavens, University Park and Bradley international School. Cherry Hills Village Elementary is also close by. Numerous private schools are roughly 10 minutes away, including Kent Denver, the Ricks Center, Denver Academy, St. Mary’s Academy and St. Anne’s. A bus stop for Colorado Academy is also located right at the edge of the neighborhood.
