Denver is home to many superstars and athletes, and just south of the city is a well-known neighborhood called Cherry Hills.

A brief history of Cherry Hills
In the year of 1938, Cherry Hills saw its first round of construction bringing “Country Homes” that captured the pastoral aspects of homestead life with the convenience of urban living. This lovely section, with its beautiful homes, naturally attracted those who would commercialize the area with filling stations, stores, shops, and small industrial plants of one kind or another.
Some 80 years ago the area is now Cherry Hills and was concerned about the sudden growth of construction. The fear of encroaching commercialization caught the attention of residents with the threat of erasing the pastoral beauty of the wide-open fields of Cherry Hills. Therefore, a group of concerned neighbors collectively agreed to work together for the sole purpose of was the protection of the area and the prevention of unsightly and inconsistent uses of land, creating the Cherry Hills Improvement Association.
Cherry Hills becomes the iconic neighborhood for the wealthiest Coloradans
To the more affluent, Cherry Hills seemingly captures the spirit of Colorado while providing the convenience of being close enough to the city. Early in its development and history, Cherry Hills could’ve been considered isolated and a retreat from the urban life of Denver. However, with the introduction of the I-25 highway, access from the suburbs and extended areas was all the more easier. The combination of large plots of land, access, and aesthetics created the perfect homes for clients that sought out privacy, serenity, and space.

Remodeling custom homes in Cherry Hills
Taking on a 10,000 custom home construction project is a sizeable task for any company but remodeling one is an entirely different challenge. In the Business Den article describing the Cherry Hills Village home, the seller originally had the home built in the style of a traditional craftsman-style look. Now, the owners have planned to design and build the home to create a European-style modern farmhouse. Not just any general contractor or home builder can take on a job that sophisticated. A higher level of understanding and attention to detail is necessary to ensure a project of that scope reaches the highest quality possible. Certainly, there will be more homes that come into the market that will showcase what Cherry Hills Village has to offer.
