DENVER NEIGHBORHOODS

Here are a few of the many neighborhoods that the Denver Estates Team specializes in.

BONNIE BRAE/BELCARO

Winding streets meander through mature landscaping and casually elegant homes in this urban enclave. Many of the homes in this neighborhood date from the 1930s and 1940s but there are newer homes mixed in as well. The neighborhood's business district includes the iconic Bonnie Brae Ice Cream Parlor, a wine shop and several restaurants. To the north, Belcaro takes its name from the mansion built by Lawrence Phipps, a U.S. Senator who represented Colorado from 1919-1931. Phipps, who developed much of the area named his home 'Belcaro' but today it is more commonly known as the Phipps Mansion. This area has many ranch-style homes on large lots.
