Neighborhood Profile Virginia Village
With the influx of expansion in the downtown area, couples with growing families are increasingly heading east to less crowded neighborhoods that are more family-friendly. Virginia Village is becoming one of the most popular family neighborhoods in the Denver metro, and with its tree-lined streets and array of activities, it’s easy to see why.
Virginia Village is bounded by South Colorado Boulevard to the west, East Mississippi Avenue and East Cherry Creek North Drive to the north, South Poplar Street to the east and East Evans Avenue to the south.
It’s a bustling neighborhood that maintains a close-knit feel but offers lots to do. The eastern edge of the neighborhood, along Cherry Creek South Drive, features the family-friendly Cook Park, complete with playground, picnic areas, athletic fields, grassy areas and a recreation center with an outdoor pool.
And tucked in the eastern corner of the neighborhood are a variety of pubs, restaurants, and taverns. The biggest commercial area can be found along the South Colorado Boulevard edge of the neighborhood.
The Virginia Village area is mostly residential, with lots of mature trees and a wide array of homes — both new and old. The median home price here is $370,000, according to Trulia.com. And if you’re thinking of renting, you can snag a two-bedroom apartment for around $1,837 per month.
While it’s rapidly gaining in popularity, there are still great options to be found in Virginia Village, and other neighborhoods like it. If you’re interested in checking out this exciting area, give Metrowest a shout – we’d love to show you around.
