Cherry Hills Village, one of the nation’s most prestigious suburbs, is also among the safest. A tranquil, rustic community of gently rolling hills, mature trees, sumptuous mansions, bridle paths, and gravel roads, Cherry Hills Village numbers among the ten wealthiest suburbs in the country.
While most of the roads are paved, there are bucolic areas with gravel roads. Here, it has been said, “gravel roads are a matter of deliberate choice rather than a lack of funds.”
Incorporated in 1945, Cherry Hills Village is home to the exclusive Cherry Hills Country Club. Considered by many to be the finest golf course in Colorado, Cherry Hills has hosted three U.S. Opens and two PGA championships including the 2005 U.S. Women’s Open. The Village also touches on two other picturesque and challenging courses: Glenmoor Country Club and Willshire Golf Course.
Strict zoning and a strong commitment to trails and open space have enabled the Village, dotted with pocket lakes and small streams, to preserve a rural ambiance and exceptional quality of life despite being surrounded by more densely populated communities.
Although Cherry Hills does not allow commercial development, a wealth of retail and services are readily accessible nearby via modern thoroughfares bordering the community. Mean commute time from Cherry Hills to work is just under 22 minutes. With the look and feel of a traditional neighborhood and the vitality of a modern one, the Village is as close as you can get to urban amenities while still feeling like you’re living in the countryside.
In addition to golf, popular pastimes include horseback riding, cycling, walking, and communing with nature. The extensive trail system accommodates pedestrians, equestrians, and cyclists, but motorized vehicles are prohibited.
Estate-size properties, many with stables and fenced for keeping horses, feature an array of exquisite masterpiece homes in a stunning variety of styles including contemporary, classic ranch, Mediterranean, French Country, and Cape Cod. In Cherry Hills, modern and rustic, avant-garde and classic, old and new mix comfortably.
