A New Home for the Holidays?!

December 6, 2022

5280 magazine revealed the top 25 neighborhoods in Denver. Making this list is a coveted honored! I wanted to dive into the top 4 neighborhoods and share my favorite listing in each! 

The raking of the top 4 are, 

  1. Wellshire
  2. Belcaro
  3. Washington Park
  4. Platt Park

#1 – Wellshire

Wellshire is a suburb in South Denver. Boarding South Broadway and Cherry Hills Village, Wellshire, is the best-kept (or not-so-kept) secret. With amazing schools, easy access to I25, and the average home pricing sitting at just over $650K, there isn’t much not to love! Not to mention the proximity to the High Line Canal Trail, which is a personal fav!

Wellshire Pick: 3713 E Nielsen Lane, Denver, CO 80210

Price at $830K

#2 – Belcaro

Belcaro is always a top winner for all the right reasons. Tucked back just east of Cherry Creek, this neighborhood just has something special. From the massive lots to the windy tree-lined streets, Belcaro has it all. Not to mention you are within walking distance of Bonnie Brea Ice Cream…need I say more?! Of course, Belcaro will set you back a bit, with the average home price sitting at $2,000,000. But boy, are the homes something special!

#3 Washington Park

Washington Park, or better known as Wash Park, pulled in third place this year. Just a few minutes from Belcaro, Wash Park is just special. With Smith Lake boosting miles of walking and running trails, every team sport you could imagine, and a picture-perfect lake, there is so much to love about Wash Park. From brick bungalows to brand-new builds, this neighborhood has a broad sample of properties, making it easy for anyone to fall in love with. But get your checkbook ready. The average home price in Washington Park is just over $1,200,000.

#4 Platt Park

Platt Park has always been a fav of mine. Just a few blocks from all the fun things on South Broadway, this cute neighborhood has it all. We are talking within walking distance of adorable shops and killer happy hours. But yet not as crazy as downtown. It’s like a millennial dream! From older homes to beautiful newbuilds, there is oh so much to love! With an average home price of around $945,000, you can get a lot of bang for your buck! 

Platt Park Pick: 1735 S Sherman Street, Denver, CO 80210
