Country Club Neighborhood
This neighborhood had its beginnings in 1902 when a group of investors purchased from an estate; 400 acres with the intent of building an exclusive residential area and a recreational club. The South half was destined to be the club itself, with the North to be developed into residential housing. In 1905, the exclusive Park Club Place on the West side of the area was incorporated into Denver, and in 1906 developer Frederick Ross annexed the Country Club area to the city. Architects William Fisher and S.R. DeBoer both contributed to the style and grace of the area.

From the beginning, homes sites were spacious with deep setbacks and parkways allowed gracious separation of the estates. The North CountryClub area, between 8th and 6th Avenues was developed on the early 1900’s, with Seventh Avenue becoming a Parkway in 1907 under Mayor Speer’s “City Beautiful” plan.

The Denver Country Club itself, built on 142 acres on either side of Cherry Creek, became the Club for Denver’s elite. Mansions, some of which stand today, were built along the South side of the golf course.

Today, the area is one of Denver’s premiere neighborhoods. The stately mansions, designed by many of Denver’s best known architects, show styles ranging from Colonial to Tudor, from French Chateau to Santa Fe and Georgian. Victorian’s and Denver Squares abound in the North area, with Contemporaries filling in spaces sold from the larger estates. Most of the homes have undergone continuous renovation, with some interiors showing the best of today’s design and finishing. The location, close to Cherry Creek shopping and Downtown business offers great value.

Desirable today for its proximity to downtown and Cherry Creek, numerous city parks and the Denver Country Club, this neighborhood remains one of the city's more sought after locations.
