Types of Belcaro Denver Homes for Sale
Although the Belcaro neighborhood is adjacent to the Polo Club and Bonnie Brea, it has a surprisingly distinct character. Bordered on the east by Steele Street, the west by Colorado Boulevard, the south by Mississippi Avenue and the north by Exposition Avenue, Belcaro means “beautiful dear one” and like the other two neighborhoods sharing this tiny square mile, it lives up to the name.

Southwest of downtown, Belcaro homes differ dramatically from Polo Club and Bonnie Brea, specifically in architectural style. While Polo Club has the Rich and Private market cornered and Bonnie Brea is known for steep-roofed brick Tudors and fairy-tale ivy-clung cottages, Belcaro Denver real estate listings include everything from classic and French colonial mansions to giant post-moderns and Tudors. However, what really define these streets are the horizontally sprawling ranch homes that still manage to leave an above-average amount of elbow room. The centerpiece of the area is the enormous Phipps mansion and the all-brick, barn-house-looking Phipps Tennis Pavilion.
Aesthetically, the streets are wide and the tall trees weave a canopy overhead. Also, the houses in Belcaro are set far back from the street, leaving room for elegant driveways and wide front yards. Homes for sale in Belcaro Denver are listed with the zip code 80209.
Like its closest neighbors, Belcaro Denver real estate only gains from its location. With Cherry Creek North and the Cherry Creek Shopping Center easily a bike ride away, there’s full neighbor access to everything from German-infused Chinook Tavern to stylish Burberry and upbeat Cherry Cricket to sexy Victoria’s Secret.
Also, east of Colorado Boulevard is Washington Park, a 165-acre twin-lake park with a 2.6 mile crushed granite jogging path, 54 flamboyant flower beds, a kid’s fishing pond, eight tennis courts, two playgrounds, soccer fields and a paved bike path. If that isn’t enough, the Denver Country Club is just north of Wash Park, the 40-mile long Cherry Creek bike path traces Cherry Creek Drive and Colorado Boulevard is home to everything from fast food joints to Wild Oates natural food store and Blockbuster to Bailey’s Total Fitness. Colorado and Steele/Speer Boulevard are both major thoroughfares leading to I-25, I-70 or both.
Like its neighbors there doesn’t seem much—if any—construction happening beyond existing home renovation and newer single family homes. With the well-kept appearance of the overall storybook neighborhood, it doesn’t seem likely there’s going to be any “scrapes” or “pop tops” going up anytime soon. Overall, this area feels less like a work-in-progress and more like the finished product. Contact us today to find currently available Belcaro Denver homes for sale.
