Deep historic roots and contemporary appeal combine in Denver’s Country Club neighborhood. A locale of lush parkways, glorious trees, and stately homes, it represents both a jaunt into the past and a portal to modern Denver living.
Designated as a Historic Landmark District in 1990, the Country Club neighborhood was originally developed at the turn of the 20th century at the same time as its namesake, the Denver Country Club. The Denver Country Club in and of itself is an iconic historic property—the oldest country club west of the Mississippi River and one of the earliest in the United States. Offering a bevy of activities and amenities including its golf course, tennis courts, croquet, swimming, and much more, it is a longstanding city and neighborhood gem.
This historic significance extends to the homes, mansions, and estates that populate this residential oasis as well—stunning examples of Denver Squares and other turn-of-the-century styles often with a shade of Mediterranean flair and designed by some of Denver’s most prominent historic architects. The area’s cafes, restaurants, and boutiques are complemented by the myriad opportunities of Country Club’s easily accessible neighbors, including downtown, Cherry Creek, Cheesman Park, and Washington Park, which also offer additional outdoor recreation. A much-lauded neighborhood and a favorite of families and established professionals, it is an impressive and luxurious locale to call home.
