Quiet elegance, modern sophistication, and natural splendor personify Belcaro. A sterling venue of urban luxury with a stately, fashionable character, this stunning neighborhood is an immaculate perch from which to enjoy all that Denver living has to offer.
Populated primarily by ranch-style homes a la the 1960s and 1970s along with sweeping estates and new custom homes, Belcaro boasts a history rooted in grandeur and glamor. The locale’s name originated with Lawrence C. Phipps, a famed U.S. Senator from Colorado in the early 20th century who was the original owner of the neighborhood’s opulent Phipps Mansion. Phipps had haled his red brick Georgian residence as “Belcaro,” which translates from Italian to “beautiful dear one,” and it is a property and a sentiment that exemplify the lovely decadence—and often European flare—of the area. From its winding roads to its impeccable landscaping and abundant trees, the neighborhood brings charming upscale living to life.
Bordered by Cherry Creek to the north, predominantly residential Belcaro boasts effortless access to ample high-end shopping, lauded restaurants, and diverse amenities. This is furthered by exciting nearby Bonnie Brae with its additional charming offerings.
