Virginia Village is roughly bound by Colorado Boulevard, East Mississippi Avenue, South Cherry Creek Drive, Quebec Street and Evans Avenue. The neighborhood bounds the intersection of Interstate 25 and Colorado Boulevard, one of Denver’s busiest thoroughfares.
When developed in the 1950s, Virginia Village was on the outskirts of town, a spot peppered with riding academies, bridle paths and pastures. It was so barren that the developer offered free trees for anyone willing to plant them. More than 60 years later, those trees have grown tall and leafy—and the neighborhood is no longer an outlier. Virginia Village offers easy access to the heart of the city. Residents can hop on nearby light rail for quick transport downtown and are just a few miles from the popular Cherry Creek Shopping Center. Closer to home, they can take advantage of the many retail and restaurant establishments along Evans and Colorado Boulevard and enjoy walking and bicycling on the Cherry Creek Trail and strolling in nearby Ash Grove and Garland parks. The neighborhood boasts a nice collection of modest California contemporary
style houses, coveted by many buyers. In the early days, homes in the area sold for $7,500 to $15,000. While the prices have increased exponentially, they are still relatively affordable, making it a perfect place for young families to put down roots, just as those trees did years ago.
