Historic Charm And Livability Come Together In Denvers Bonnie Brae Neighborhood
Fast-forward to present day, where Bonnie Brae has grown into a substantial residential neighborhood with many beautiful 1930s and 40s-era homes. One of Denver’s most treasured communities, Bonnie Brae is a classic neighborhood situated in South Denver that features picture perfect winding streets that are framed by mature trees and friendly and active neighbors.
Located east of University Avenue between Mississippi and Exposition Avenues, Steele Street and University Boulevard, Bonnie Brae began developing in the 1920s, and is home to one of urban Denver's most vibrant neighborhood commercial districts. The neighborhood's unusual street patterns don't follow the typical city street grid, and its winding streets surround an elliptical-shaped park enjoyed by many residents.
The homes in Bonnie Brea range from the original smaller but unique houses, to multi-million dollar custom built homes. Home prices remain strong in Bonnie Brae, which is a testament to the desirability of living near the center of a major metropolitan city, with parks, restaurants and shopping all within a few miles. The commute to downtown Denver from Bonnie Brae is less than 15 minutes, and it’s only five minutes to the nearby Cherry Creek shopping center. Even the beautiful Washington Park is only a five minute bicycle ride away. It is also right next door to Belcaro, a popular neighborhood known for its huge, sprawling lots and stately homes.
Bonnie Brae has a very active neighborhood association that helps provide a real sense of community and neighborhood pride among its residents. The association, which is voluntary to those who live in the neighborhood, works diligently to improve relations with the city and county of Denver and local builders and businesses.
Ideal for young families or professionals looking for a neighborhood feel with the amenities of downtown close by, Bonnie Brae remains a popular and somewhat pricey area in metro Denver.
