Bonnie Brae & Belcaro

Nestled in the heart of south Denver lies the neighborhoods of Bonnie Brae and Belcaro. Gaelic for “pleasant hill,” Bonnie Brae was named by prominent Denver businessman and developer George W. Olinger who commissioned landscape architect Saco DeBoer in 1923 to recreate the aura of a peaceful Scottish village in Denver. One step east you’ll find the Belcaro neighborhood. Developed in the post-war era under the ownership of Carnegie Steel executive and Colorado Senator, Lawrence C. Phipps, Belcaro centers around his historic Phipps Mansion and Estate built in 1933.

What To Expect

The streets of Bonnie Brae were designed in direct contrast to the traditional grid system found in the majority of Denver to give the neighborhood a sense of elegance. The resulting winding and diagonal tree lined streets surround its elliptical namesake park. Built over the course of three decades, through the lulls created by the Great Depression and WWII, the neighborhood boasts an eclectic mix of architecture: Tudor, Art Deco and Bauhaus, Postmodern, International, along with recent contemporary builds. The adjacent Belcaro neighborhood features more spacious lots in a park like setting with sprawling single story ranches and elegant multistory homes that are stately but welcoming.

Why We Love It

These elements all add up to make Bonnie Brae & Belcaro one of the most unique and beloved neighborhoods in Denver. Its great location provides a cocooned tranquility despite being only a few minutes away from some of Denver’s most bustling areas, including Cherry Creek, Washington Park, Historic South Gaylord Street, University of Denver, and easy access to I-25 and downtown. The community is well known for being embracing of homeowners of all ages and taking great pride in the neighborhood. Summer evening walks to the long-standing Bonnie Brae Ice Cream with neighbors and four-legged friends are an essential way of life and binds the community together.
