Denver’s Berkeley neighborhood has become incredibly popular in recent years. Berkeley is bounded by 38th Avenue, I-70, Federal, and Sheridan, and is anchored by Tennyson Street, offering easy access to I-70, simplifying trips to the Denver International Airport, the mountains, and concerts at Red Rocks. It also provides a short commute to Downtown Denver. Berkeley real estate has also become attractive to many home-buyers due its location adjacent to the trendy Upper Highlands and Sunnyside neighborhoods, in addition to the lakes located in the Rocky Mountain Lake Park and Berkeley Park.
This area has undergone a redevelopment initiative, so the homes for sale offer a lot of variety, including newly-constructed modern homes offering tons of light, well-placed balconies, and roof-top decks, as well as Victorian homes with an abundance of history and character. The Tennyson Street Cultural District in Berkeley is a popular and walkable destination lined with dozens of unique mom and pop shops, local bars, and great restaurants, as well as a monthly First Friday Art Walk through the area’s growing number of art galleries.
Some of our favorite spots in the neighborhood include the Book Bar – a bookstore, coffee shop, and bar rolled into one, the Denver Cat Company – where patrons can hang out with adoptable cats from local animal rescues while sipping coffee or tea, Vital Root restaurant – which offers delicious vegan and vegetarian options, and Berkeley Untapped – where patrons can order craft beers from which a portion of sales benefits a variety of nonprofits. And let’s not forget one of Denver’s coolest venues, the historic Oriental Theatre, which hosts a variety of live music, film, comedy, and live performances.
