Congress Park Homes For Sale

Congress Park is located just to the North and within easy walking distance of the fashionable Cherry Creek Mall. The neighborhood is also very close Capitol Hill and the Denver hospital areas. 

Congress Park began as a streetcar suburb in the 1900's. Cars carried downtown commuters along Colfax and 12th Avenue. Many of the neighborhood structure were built during this period, including Fire Station #15 and Capitol Presbyterian Church. 

Trivia: Congress Park used to be a cemetry. It took an act of the United States Congress to allow for the cemetery to be converted to a park. In gratitude, Denver named this place “Congress Park”. 

Homes in Congress Park

Homes here are older than those found in neighboring Cherry Creek and home styles are a blend of old and new with a wide variety of Denver squares. Many have been remodeled to today’s standards. The farther North you move from the Cherry Creek Shopping Center, the less expensive the real estate becomes. Grand homes grace the tree-lined boulevard of the 7th Avenue Parkway area. These homes are generally priced above $900,000. However, smaller Denver Bungalows and Denver Squares are also located in the Congress Park area and are priced between $300,000 to $700,000.

Move further north toward Colfax, and you’ll find an eclectic mix of single-family, duplexes, and condos.

Amusement & Recreation

Congress Park has tennis courts and a public pool, along with fields for soccer and baseball.

Commuting to downtown Denver is less than 15 minutes. The easy walk  to nearby Botanic Gardens is an added benefit. The gardens have a stunning variety of plants and flowers. Summer concerts are a favorite event held there in the evenings.

Congress Park’s X factor score also gets a boost from the recent influx of new restaurants and shops along Colfax Avenue—among them a shared-building concept from Humble Pie Store and Cerebral Brewing as well as the hip-but-approachable Lula Rose General Store coffeeshop.

Schools

The neighborhood’s anchor school, Teller Elementary, receives high marks.

Review from Congress Park Client

5 Star Review for Barry Kunselman

Barry was a tremendous help in buying a house. We were first-time buyers and totally clueless about real estate and definitely Denver real estate. 

He guided us through the process and helped us decide on the area that we now live in. His knowledge of Denver left us with no worries that the condo we bought would maintain its value for years to come. 

The best thing about Barry was that it genuinely felt like he was making us his number one priority at all times even though he is an insanely busy guy. It put us at ease and made buying our new home that much easier. I don't know if we would be living here without his help. He is awesome
