When you think of Denver and its desirable neighborhoods, the likes of Cherry Creek North, Washington Park, Hilltop and Park Hill come to mind, – but the most desirable Denver mansions aren’t necessarily in Denver proper. They’re peppered across the rolling and breathtaking landscape surrounding the city, particularly along the Colorado Front Range of the Rockies. Here are our top three picks for the most desirable areas to purchase luxury real estate, and buy a Denver mansion.
Cherry Hills Village, Colorado
Cherry Hills and Cherry Hills Village both developed around the prestigious Cherry Hills Country Club in suburban Denver. The area comprises of about six square miles of land, with over 6,000 residents in large single-family homes and sprawling estates. Homes in the area are generally priced from just below $1 million to $20 million. Almost 40 percent of people in the area have Master’s or professional degrees.
The Douglas County seat just 20 miles to the south and west of Denver, you may have only just heard of this beautiful and historic town with news of the upcoming luxury real estate auction of Serenity Ridgethe largest absolute auction of a private home slated for September 27, 2014. To be sure, Parker has soared well beyond its meager beginnings as a railroad frontier town in 1864, and is now where some of the world’s most elite CEOs, A-listers and self-made moguls make their home. While most of the homes in Parker hardly compare to the stunning 50,000+ square feet Denver mansion called Serenity Ridge on 70 acres along the Front Range of the Rockies, there are many gated communities and private ranch and retreat-style Denver mansions to choose from if you don’t win the upcoming auction.

Castle Pines, Colorado
Also located in Douglas County, Castle Pines is 18 miles to the south and east of Denver and was named #2 of Colorado’s most affluent cities by Denver Westword (eclipsed only by Cherry Hills). Nearly two-thirds of the households in the newly incorporated city (2007) have incomes in the top 2% of Americans and make, on average, more than twice that of any other resident of Colorado. Nearly a quarter of residents hold graduate or professional degrees. With a population of just over 10,000, the city only covers 9.5 square miles and the homes within its boundaries are massive, spread out and sought after by the greater Denver elite. Median prices to buy Denver mansions in the Castle Pines suburb run over half a million and soar into the tens of millions.
