The Wellshire neighborhood in south Denver is bounded by Hampden Avenue, Colorado Boulevard, Yale Ave, and University Boulevard.
Conveniently located between downtown and the Denver Tech Center, and less than a mile from Denver University, Wellshire neighborhood offers a lifestyle that recalls the best of yesteryear. Residents enjoy one of the lowest crime rates in the city and wide, winding streets lined with ranch homes and expansive lawns. They also appreciate an exceptional neighborhood school; with its high test scores and impressive level of parental involvement, Slavens School, for students K-8th grade, is considered one of the best in Denver. (Although there’s a waiting list for students to get into the school, residents are given priority). Homeowners also enjoy amenities such as nearby Wellshire Golf Club, a public golf course and fine restaurant; University Hills Shopping Center, where they can meet friends at Starbucks or pick up groceries at King Soopers, and the impressive cultural offerings of DU’s Newman Center for the Performing Arts. While some homes are being scraped off and replaced with larger, more modern structures, this remains a place out of the past: a neighborhood where families enjoy a safe, quiet and welcoming, community oriented environment.
