Belcaro is bounded by University & Colorado Blvd, Mississippi Ave and Cherry Creek Drive.
The Belcaro neighborhood is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in the city and includes the Bonnie Brae neighborhood within its boundaries. The area has curving streets, a circular central park and stately homes. Architectural styles include English Tudors and Cape Cods as well as brick ranches — a mix resulting, in part, from multiple development booms. The creation of Ellipse Park in 1936 sparked construction of homes in the 40s and 50s. Bonnie Brae Boulevard showcases an interesting collection of architectural styles, including International Style and Art Moderne. Much of Belcaro’s appeal comes not only from being a short walk to local eateries, boutiques, spas and the library, but also its proximity to Washington Park and the Cherry Creek shopping district. Local development along University Boulevard has seen a spark in recent years, with the completion of the nearby Cherry Creek Mall and shopping centers, as well as several condominium and luxury apartment complexes. In Belcaro itself, new developments give way to renovation and preservation of the classic and historic homes that make up the community neighborhood.
