Welcome to Belcaro

Nestled just south of Cherry Creek South and north of Bonnie Brae, lies exclusive, tiny Belcaro. What it lacks in size, it makes up for in grandeur.

While similar to its luxury sibling on its southern border Bonnie Brae, it’s a bit more private with many homes featuring a design flair. Where Cherry Creek North feels hip and vibrant, Belcaro feels secluded and private — providing the rare combination of country-living vibe in the heart of the city.

The neighborhood gets its name from the mansion of Lawrence C. Phipps, who developed much of the neighborhood. Phipps chose “Belcaro” (Italian for “dear one”) as the mansion’s name, but it is generally known as the Phipps Mansion.

Additional Details

With a scarcity of streets into and out of the neighborhood, Belcaro’s prices and bigger lots are not the only features that contribute to its private vibe.

Custom-built homes on larger lots also distinguish its homes. Many homes have notable designers and architects.

A gated community called the Polo Grounds occupies a section of the western part of the neighborhood, also home to the featured listing above at 576 Elizabeth Street.

Who lives here

Those who want a private lifestyle. Many residents are more likely to socialize at the Denver Country Club than with their neighbors.
