Small and quaint, Southern Hills/Wellshire is an area with a vibrant and active community. This highly sought out neighborhood is between University Blvd to the west; Colorado Blvd to the east Hampden Ave to the south and Yale to the North. The neighborhood boasts the popular Slavens School Grade kindergarten through 8th grade that has been very successful at attracting families looking to live in this neighborhood. You will find brick-and-frame ranch-style homes as a common architectural style throughout the neighborhood. The area is characterized by large lots and winding streets on the south side of Dartmouth.
The Wellshire Golf Club and the Wellshire Inn are landmarks that attract many to the area. You will also find some of the best-ranked schools in all of Denver, which attract many residents.
It’s country club living without the attitude. One-quarter of the Wellshire neighborhood-the entire southeast corner is home to the public 18-hole Wellshire Golf Club, a gem of a destination with a reservoir, mature cottonwood trees, and a cozy 1926-built clubhouse and restaurant. Built in the 1950’s and 60’s, Southern Hills and Cherry Hills Heights were developed as five sections. All the homes were custom built and represent styles typical of the era. The neighborhood's covenant has kept “pop-tops” and “scrapes” out of the area, preserving the neighborhood’s character.
Though Southern Hills real estate is filled with single-family homes and ranch-style dwellings, you’ll also find parks around the corner. Don’t miss the University Hills Plaza, where you can shop for groceries, catch a movie, or enjoy a casual meal.
For families that yearn for urban convenience, but are looking for a serene home life, buying in Wellshire is one of the best.
