Bonnie Brae Denver Homes For Sale - Architecture and Environment
This is the neighborhood where people spend lazy afternoons admiring the architecture, strolling down the tree-lined sidewalks, and wondering how great it would be to purchase one of the Bonnie Brae homes for sale and live here.

Known for steep-roofed, brick Tudors and fairy-tale, ivy-clung cottages, Bonnie Brae real estate also has a fair amount of shuttered colonials and stucco mission houses. Designed to mimic a Scottish village, Bonnie Brae means “Pleasant Hill” and certainly doesn't fall short. Because of its smaller size, this neighborhood has a small-town, close-knit feel, a welcome change from the bustle of the urban sector. It is predominantly, if not completely, comprised of single-family residences and lacks the boxy apartment buildings, gaudy high-rises and industrial condos found in other parts of the city. The streets are curvy, tree-lined and different from the geometric grid that is a staple in Denver.
There's very little development in the area that isn't renovation. The exterior of the homes maintain that classic charm, while the insides get a modern and up-to-date makeover, making Bonnie Brae a compact, well-preserved, yet interesting, neighborhood.
The center of the neighborhood is Bonnie Brae Park, a small plot of land intended for aesthetic purposes. However, for those interested in running, tennis, jogging or any manner of athletics, there is no point in Bonnie Brae that is more than a mile from neighboring Washington Park; with its eight tennis courts, two playgrounds, soccer fields, paved bike path and gravel jogging loop.
Like the neighborhood, Bonnie Brae's University Boulevard commercial district is compact and charming, with everything from the upscale Bonnie Brae Wine and Spirits to the famous, homemade Bonnie Brae Ice Cream. Or try the local Italian flair of the long-lived Saucy Noodle or the homespun Seven 30 South Grill. On a larger scale, the chic Cherry Creek Shopping Center and Cherry Creek North are only minutes away and offer all manner of boutiques, salons and upscale shopping. Additionally, Bonnie Brae homes for sale are surrounded by thoroughfares connecting it with other parts of the city. University leads to Interstate-25 and Cherry Creek North, while Mississippi leads to Washington Park, making Bonnie Brae easily accessible to everything.
Bonnie Brae real estate is listed with the zip code of 80209.
