Looking for a home in the Denver area

Where are some of the nicer luxury homes in the area? We are flying out to look in Cherry Creek next week. Me and my wife are looking for suggestions. We are looking for a 2plus acre lot or a finished Tuscany estate? Where do a lot of guys from the Avs live? I play hockey myself and would like to be close to a place with a good Gold league. I figure the players probly live close to the training facilities. Thanks in advance.

Cherry creek, Chenango, Misty Pines..

Those are the ones I know. Wash Park is expensive as well but it's not a 2 acre lot.

Cherry Creek is a really nice luxury busy part of town.
(Driving Distance: Right next to the Denver area)

Polo Reserved is more pricey, but has a less busyness type of feel. OT: That's where Kroenke lives.
(Driving distance: Great distances between everything)

Castle Pines is a lot like Cherry Creek, but has a mountain getaway type of feeling. Very quiet, great golf course, and has that your hidden away from the world feeling.
(Driving Distance: Sucks! An average of 15-20 minutes to go away, but makes up for it in acres)

You most likely won't find anything 2+ acres in Cherry Creek. Denver lots are usually 6250 SF, sometimes you'll find a double.

Check out the area around Josephine and 7th ave. I'm not sure of the name of area, but very nice houses. I suppose you could call this Cherry Creek.

You may find something larger around Denver Country Club (around Alameda/University).

Cherry Hills would be a good bet for acreage. Not sure of your budget, but I'd figure 2m+. You may find a lot in there for a premium.

Castle Pines is about 20 miles south of Denver. It's close to being built out (few empty lots left), but many 1+ acre lots.

There are other areas south and west of there like Bear Dance, etc. that are newer communities with golf courses, but that's quite a drive if you're going downtown.

As for hockey leagues, there are rinks pretty much everywhere; I don't know how close you'll be able to find one in Castle Pines though. Around here the leagues are rated by letter (I assume your gold would be A), and not every rink has an A. RMHL rotates the season between 4 metro rinks and I think they have an A league.

I think some of the younger Avs players live downtown, and others live closer to the practice facility (Family Sports on Arapahoe road south of denver)

Saudi Aurora, The Fax and Cap Hill are all excellent choices to live.

There are also plenty of good homes in the foothills. Park hill is worth a look.

Or make an offer on the Bugs Bunny Motel

check out some of the areas in the Foothills... Ken Caryl, Genesee (my home 'hood, woot woot), etc. These have great mountain access, nice terrain, and are close enough to I-70, 6th, etc., that it only puts you about 15 minutes from downtown Denver. If you want to live closer to downtown, 2 acres is going to be at a premium, but you might me able to find something in one of the aforementioned areas... Denver CC, Cherry Hills, Washington/Observatory Park.

Call a real estate agent.

They get paid to know the locations of the homes you're looking for, and to know which areas are increasing in value and which are stagnating.

Oh for Peter Forsberg's sake (or is that skate?)...There goes Bubba Thudd using common sense. Come one now fella, it's a lot more fun if everyone convinces him to buy a home on the worst part of town...I'm not even from the Denver area but I'm about to tell the guy he should buy as close to the airport as possible...it's so near everything.

We have contacted multiple real-estate agents. I was just asking some locals. Word of mouth is a nice resource as well!

To all those who have contributed thank you, I greatly appreciate it. We are in the 2.5-3 million bracket and I really like the Cherry Hills area.

Good choice. And good time to be looking there ... you'll definitely get more land there than in Cherry Creek/DCC area, and it's closer in than Castle Pines. It's where the more established guys live ... Sakic, Smyth, Turgeon, and Drury and Blake were there when they were here; Foote was there before Ohio, don't know where he returned ... The younger (single) guys lived in townhouses down in Cherry Creek. But I don't really know where the new guys live. They don't make any money, ya know.

I don't know about adult hockey leagues ... as for rinks, South Suburban is the closest one to Cherry Hills, only 5-10 min. away. The Ice Ranch is another 10 min. south of there. Then Foothills is west, maybe 30 min. Family Sports is southeast, that's where the Avalanche train. Maybe 20 min. from CHV.

Look at the map where Smyth's house is ... that's my favorite part of CHV ... also off Quincy near Kent Denver School. Enjoy.

Unlike when he was picking college hockey teams.
