In 1945, based on the threat of an airport being built too close to the Cherry Hills, the quiet Denver suburb decided to incorporate. First ordinance passed? A height clearance ordinance at which airplanes could fly over. Translation, there would be no airport built! In 1966 Cherry Hills Village became a Home Rule City complete with its own form of government.
Today, the draw of this quiet little “City” are the magnificent estates, open spaces, semi-rural atmosphere, low-density and family oriented community, 20 minute commute to Downtown and of course host to Denver’s top schools.
With homes ranging in style of Ranches, Mid-Century Modern and Luxurious Homes and price tags ranging from $800,000-12,000,000, Cherry Hills Village is one of the most opulent places in the country to live and voted the number one suburb in America.
