I would not buy a house that backed onto Monaco. It's not just that it's an issue for you while you live there, it will also be harder to sell when the time comes. That's relative of course, and I'm sure in this market they will still find a buyer fairly quickly, but markets change and if it becomes a buyer's market, a house on a busy street (fronting or in the back like this) can end up sitting for a long time.

We have expanded our search area outside of Wash Park / Congress Park / Park Hill.. inventory is very low as it is but the homes are all 800-900 plus and while the area is really great, you don't get that much home / yard.

Found some cute places in Cherry Hills Vista and South Capitol Hill. What are your guys' thoughts on these two areas?

Cherry Hills Vista neighborhood feeds into the Slavens School, which is among the top performing elementary schools in the Denver Public School System..... it was back then ....
Really nice area I lived right here on the corner of Downing and Yale .

Would definitely opt for Cherry Hills Vista over Cap hill with a family.

Cherry Hills Vista is a great option. I'm assuming the houses feed into Slavens? Excellent area.

Your original post said “safety is a must,” so I would 100% choose Cherry Hills Vista over anything in the cap hill area. Also the schools are way better and it’s going to have much more of the tight knit / family feel you want.

Source: I live in cap hill area with kids, and I’m leaving partly because of safety concerns. Also, although there are families around here, for the most part people stick to themselves. (There are exceptions on a block by block basis - from what I’ve seen, if you have an affluent block of all single family homes it can be much friendlier, depending on the specific mix of neighbors.)
