Welcome to Cherry Hills Village
Filled with natural splendor, this elegant village is home to many grand estates.
Located minutes from Denver, Cherry Hills Village, which is regularly listed among the most affluent cities in the United States, is home to beautiful rolling hills and an abundance of luxurious estates. A haven for celebrities and the wealthy, this 6.5 square mile area has about 6,000 residents and is coveted for its mountain range backdrop and serene, private elegance.
Homes here range from simple ranches and brick colonials to more elaborate English manor-style properties. Acreages of land are the most significant selling feature, and houses are situated in various scenic locations, including golf courses and hiking trails. Prices start in the low millions and extend to as high as $18 million.
There is a country feel to this town, but residents still enjoy convenient access to the city—Downtown Denver is only 30 minutes away. Several premier shopping districts are located nearby—the Denver Tech Center is the most effortless commute, clocking in as a five- to ten-minute car ride away.
