Wellshire Denver Homes
Wellshire Denver homes are overwhelmingly defined by classic ranches and raised-ranches and the neighborhood feels like a suburban stronghold at the bottom of Denver County. While to the north Observatory Park is undergoing a massive face-lift, Wellshire is just beginning to feel the neo-eclectic makeover defining that neighboring area. Read More...
Particularly in the east, construction of new Wellshire Denver homes is fairly prominent, with stucco, stone, and brick neo-eclectic mansions popping up between some of the older/smaller blocks of ranches.
In the southwest corner, an area called Cherry Hills Heights differs slightly from the overall tone in that the ranches are particularly sprawling, with plenty of elbow room. Also, in the northwest corner the Cherry Hills III gated community appears to be blocks and blocks of almost identical red brick ranches.
Aesthetically, the streets are wide and hugged by thin sidewalks. Although there are a good number of mature trees speckled throughout the small front and side yards, wide streets really make for a sunny, open neighborhood that differs from the City Park/Wash Park/Byers type of shady city streets.
Predominantly single-family, Wellshire Denver homes include few—if any—duplexes, condos, row houses or apartments. Homes for sale in Wellshire are listed with zip codes which include 80210.

From the fast food and acoustically sophisticated Newman Center for the Performing Arts on University Boulevard to the King Soopers, 24 Fitness and Pier 1 Imports on Colorado, there’s no everyday need that isn’t available in the hustle-bustle surrounding the Wellshire real estate boundaries. In contrast, the neighborhood itself is a quiet oasis with neighboring access to two of the smaller and most wonderful parks in the city. Observation Park is home to such amenities as tennis courts, a rugby field, baseball field, basketball court, playground and the historic Romanesque Chamberlin Observatory. The smaller yet equally wonderful Robert H. McWilliams Park is a quiet hamlet with a basketball court, playground, umbrella shaded tables and an enchanting-looking wooden bridge. University and Colorado are both major thoroughfares leading to I-25.
Particularly in the east, Wellshire real estate is sharing in some of the construction frenzy taking place in Observation Park. Scraping away the older, more worn-around-the-edges ranches, single-family mansions are popping up all over the northeast section of Wellshire.
