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.

“My family and I moved from the East Coast over 8 years ago and only considered Colorado because we found Cherry Hills Village. We love the family oriented community, open space and best schools in the state. It’s a comfortable place to live with no surprises.”
