Denver for the Holidays

1578 N. Emerson Street

1900’s Denver brownstone with over 2000 sf offers an open main living area with original details. The fully restored wood windows, banister details, original hardwoods and tall ceilings capture the history and charm that Denver has to offer. The large windows and skylight shower the home with natural light. Enjoy quiet, as the walls are brick and very thick. The basement has a second entrance, so you can use it as a den or as a rental or mother-in-law suite. The neighbors are a delight and are passionate about community! Enjoy all that Denver and Uptown have to offer, with access to theaters, museums, shopping and dining! Downtown Denver is less than 5 minutes away- so you’ll never miss a beat.

Shaping Denver Get Involved!

Shaping Denver Get Involved! 

 Recently we had an opprotunity to be appart of the BRUN neighborhood meetings. We learn so much in these meetings and will share other fun bit-o-info on other blogs. However, after our most recent meeting we learned about an AMAZING opprotunity that gets US, the community, involved.

“Involved”, you may groan. YES! Involved!

Have you ever made a comment, complaint or quandry about any of the following:

  1. Denver Parks or Denver Recreation?
  2. Denver Pedestrian Walkways, Pathways and Trails? 
  3. Land use or Transportation?
  4. Denver Transit?

Now if you say No, then this a call out. “WE DON’T BELIVE YOU!” If you haven’t gripped about traffic, sidewalks, road closures or any of that then you may be living, well, not in Denver.

Well here is your chance! Get up, do something about it. Get involved. Stop with the “talk” and put some “ACTION” into it! Denver is heading up DenverRight. Their statment is simple, ” Community-driven planning process that challenges you to shape how we want to evolve”. It’s that simple!

So with that, now we all have NO excuse to grip, complain any more. There is now an opprotunity for us to get invovled and help our Little Big City of DENVER grow into what we hope and know it can become!

Check out the video below for some more info, but hey, lets get involved and do something about this city we love called DENVER aka Mile High aka, #myplaceIcallhome.

Denver Neighborhoods – Five Points

Denver Neighborhoods – Five Points

The Five Points neighborhood is named because it is located at the point where the diagonal grid of downtown Denver meets East Denver’s rectangular grid, creating a five way intersection where Washington Street, 26th Street and Welton Avenue meet. The neighborhood lies within the east side of Denver.  Five Points is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Denver. Much of the neighborhood’s growth occurred during the 1860’s and there are many interesting, historic properties still standing within the area. The light rail and proximity of the neighborhood to downtown Denver have attracted many new folks into the neighborhood.
