SouthEast of Downtown
In 1904, the
original Denver Country Club was built. A sprawling, private estate for Denvers
old-guard elite, the club lent its tone and name to the exclusive residential neighborhood
that sprang up on its northern edge.
William and Arthur Fisher, in collaboration with prominent Boston architect Frederick Law
Olmsted, Jr., designed the exclusive Country Club Place subdivision between Franklin and
Race Streets in 1909. Architecturally fascinating mansions and grand houses designed for
Denvers social and political elite define this 380-home neighborhood. Styles range
from the Neoclassical to the highly popular Spanish Colonial Revival. Because of this
heavy Spanish-Mediterranean influence, the Country Club residential area called itself
Denvers Spanish Suburb.
Todays Country Club Historic District begins north of the Denver Country Club at 1st
Avenue and extends to 4th Avenue, to 6th Avenue along Circle Drive, and from University
Boulevard to Downing Street. Situated within minutes of both downtown Denver and Cherry
Creek, Country Club is considered one of Denvers most desirable neighborhoods. Homes
dont last long in this neighborhood and suprisingly enough they range from the $500's up
to over $2 Million.
