Cherry Hills Village – One of the Most Affluent Areas in Denver CO

Written by Posted On Monday, 24 October 2016 19:18

Just south of Denver sits Cherry Hills Village. This quaint and luxurious village makes up 6.5 square miles of Arapahoe County. The village has a wonderful unique history which has made the community one of the premier low-density communities in the western United States.

Picture it – a small community in Colorado, 1938. A few homes had been built in what is known as "Country Homes" – sometimes called "The Circle” – which is the area lying south of Hampden Avenue and either side of University Boulevard. South of Country Homes, the Cherry Hills Country Club had managed to survive the depression and was showing a modest increase in membership. After the depression and World War II, the people of Cherry Hills Village continued to go forward, determined to thrive within the community that they had struggled to build. They faced many challenges including land zoning, politics, and little-to-no budget to work with.

Fast forward to 1972 when Cherry Hills Village won the so-called Nopro case, confirming the City's ability to restrict development incompatible with defined community values and establishing an important precedent in land-use law. The City of Cherry Hills Village has since prevailed in maintaining its semi-rural character against changing economic trends.

Living in Cherry Hills Village provides residents access to exceptional education. This community is located in the Cherry Creek School District – one of the top performing districts in the State of Colorado. It is also home to St. Mary’s Academy, an all-girls’ private high school, which can claim former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice among its alumni. Kent Denver School, also private, counts former Secretary of State Madeline Albright among its alumni.

Recreation is a big part of this community, which hosted two PGA Championships (1941 and 1985) and the 2005 U.S. Women's Open at the Cherry Hills Country Club. The famous Arnold Palmer iced tea drink is said to have been created at the Cherry Hills Country Club. For you hikers, Red Rocks Park/Dakota Loop is a short drive to the west, or take a quick jaunt to Pirates Cove Aquatic Park to cool off. Home prices in Cherry Hills Village range from around $1 million to $10 million, with a few homes as high as $25 million.

A couple of notable residents of Cherry Hills include Peyton Manning, former quarterback of the Denver Broncos, and John Elway, also a former quarterback and now VP of the Denver Broncos.
