Just south of the well-to-do Cherry Creek neighborhood is one of the most sought-after in metro Denver: Belcaro.


Bounded by East Alameda Avenue and Cherry Creek to the north, South Colorado Boulevard to the east, East Mississippi Avenue to the south and South University Boulevard to the west, the neighborhood has several parks, part of the Cherry Creek Trail and plenty of curvy, tree-lined roads.


Around the same time, the Belcaro Park neighborhood was also created around the Belcaro mansion. With the spruce and elm-tree lined streets and large lots, it was highly-desirable immediately. Property values were expensive then and have only continued to increase.
