Hey all,

I just moved here and I'm doing some real estate research on the Denver metro area, mostly south of the city. I've found Highlands Ranch and Greenwood Village to be pretty affluent areas. What other areas around Denver are considered to be "affluent"? Thanks!

In the heart of rather Denver (rather than the south) there is Hilltop, Polo Grounds, Country Club, Country Club North. All of these historic neighborhoods are close to parks. The last two listed are walkable to parks, Botanic Gardens, Cherry Creek North, Cherry Creek Mall, and other amenities.

cil mentioned most of the "traditionally" affluent areas, these days many other formerly middle-class neighborhoods in Denver (e.g., Wash Park, Bonnie Brae, Highlands, etc) are rapidly becoming more affluent, but they do have a much greater mix of wealthy, middle-class, retirees, students, etc.

Also, when you want to talk about moneyed places in the Denver area, you surely can't forget about Boulder -- the Mapleton Hill area particularly is definitely for the high rollers only.

heh
I once was a nanny up on Mapleton Hill (in the last century, not far from Mork's house ).
One thing: the "traditional" neighborhoods that I mentioned do have more affordable houses here and there. And I agree with what tfox says about Wash Park and the other neighborhoods. I still would prefer to be east of downtown, but that's just me.

Cherry Hills Village! -for sure.- Cherry Hills Village was ranked 36th of the richest communities in America and 1st as richest communities in Colorado. (Wikipedia 2007). Home range from 1 Million to 20 Million, possibly higher.
