Named after the American poet and abolitionist, John Whittier, Denver’s Whittier neighborhood features beautiful and historic homes for sale in Victorian, Queen Anne, Denver Square, Dutch Colonial, Craftsman, and Spanish-styles, with newer modern townhomes sprinkled into the mix. Bounded by Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard., 23rd Avenue, York Street, and Downing, Whittier‘s charm and convenient location just northeast of downtown make it a popular neighborhood.
The Cole neighborhood is equally close to Downtown Denver, extending directly north from Whittier, and is bounded by Walnut Street and 40th Avenue. Cole real estate also offers homebuyers a variety of options, including charming single-family Victorian homes of all shapes and sizes, vintage brick rowhomes, Craftsman bungalows, Denver Squares, and contemporary lofts, townhomes, and condos for sale.
Both Whittier-Cole homes for sale offer lower prices than the City Park neighborhood, while still providing amenities and convenience. The Whittier-Cole neighborhoods are only a walk or bike ride away from the RiNo art district, restaurants and nightlife in City Park West and Uptown, and allow easy access to Downtown Denver. Whittier-Cole also provide convenient public transportation, with light rail stations at 30th and Downing Street, as well as 38th and Blake.
The Whittier and Cole neighborhoods are close to the Denver Museum of Natural Science, the Denver Zoo, City Park, and the City Park Golf Course. With 330 acres of green space nearby, there’s plenty of room for outdoor activities, such as the annual Tour de Fat and free summer jazz concerts provided by the City of Denver. Whittier and Cole are also just minutes away from I-70, for convenient trips to DIA, the mountains, and concerts at Red Rocks. Our favorite spots in Whittier and Cole include the Whittier Cafe, the Whittier Pub, Jake’s Sports & Spirits, and the Beet Box.
