Exploring Denver’s Country Club Neighborhood

American Elms over 100 years old cover large stretches of Denver’s Country Club's parkways and tiled rooftops in impressive canopies. The phrase "Denver's Spanish Suburb" is sometimes used to describe it. It is also one of the most beautiful places in the city. This neighborhood is a home run because of its close proximity to Downtown Denver, Washington Park, Cherry Creek North, and magnificent mansions with gorgeous architecture, not to mention its rich history. The gates to this exclusive neighborhood are marked by imposing Spanish gateways and verdant gardens. William and Arthur Fisher, renowned for their elegant Mediterranean designs, created the gates, parkways, and many of the homes in the neighborhood. 

Eat and Drink

Alex Seidel, the chief chef at Fruition Restaurant and recipient of a James Beard Award, prepares intelligent, seasonally appropriate cuisine in the neighborhood. Other options in the area include Satchel's on 6th, which serves American comfort food, and Pho on 6th, which serves Vietnamese food. If you're searching for a place to work or just want a delicious cup of coffee, head over to Buzz Cafe or Novo Coffee. You can easily head over to Cherry Creek North's for many other options, including the stylish Forget Me Not cocktail lounge, by walking a few streets east for a wider variety.

Where to Shop?

Since it first opened in 1971, The Lark has become a neighborhood favorite for hand-picked home décor and one-of-a-kind presents. By purchasing consignment antiques at La Cache, which was established by a hospital volunteer approximately 40 years ago, you can help the children and families at Children's Hospital Colorado.

Let’s talk about the Golf Club!

Denver Country Club (DCC) is at the center of the community. It is one of the oldest country clubs in the nation and the oldest west of the Mississippi, having been founded in 1887. Golf is only one of the many amenities available to members; they can also use the facility's indoor and outdoor tennis courts, Olympic-sized pool, croquet green, and newly renovated gathering and dining areas.

Fun Facts!

On January 1st of 1905, the first clubhouse was inaugurated. James Foulis, Jr., the landscape architect, immediately earned a stellar reputation for the lush new fairways throughout the Rocky Mountain Region. With 3,003 residents, Country Club is Denver's 19th most walkable neighborhood. It also has some public transportation and is very bikeable. Originally intended as a single country estate, this affluent area is home to some of the largest estate residences in the city. 

The Tudor Revival Castle (Reed Mansion) is the most notable. The building has a slate roof with multiple steep gables. soaring stone chimneys, bronze window frames, and intricate brickwork and trim made of Indiana limestone.
