KUSA - A lot of old Denver neighborhoods are suddenly hot thanks to trendsetting properties, new restaurants and good schools. On 9News 8 a.m. we looked at the newest area to make the list.
Wade Perry, Managing Broker of Coldwell Banker Devonshire says Uptown/Five Points is the newest example of what's become a real estate renaissance in many areas of Denver. He says what's happening in this zone is similar to the resurgence of Washington Park, LoDo and the Highlands neighborhoods.
Perry says an influx of new restaurants is helping draw newcomers, along with a new Sprouts grocery store. Still, Perry says it still comes down to a home or property's walkability and price. He offered up two examples.
2821 California Street
Perry says this $349,000 property dates back to 1886 and preserves the best of the original home, including exposed brick walls and original hardwoods. He says modern touches include a brand new two-car garage which can be a real plus in this parking-challenged area.
1004 E. 25th Avenue
Perry calls this $292,000 home a good mix of 1893 charm and 2013 modernism. The 19th century touches include exposed brick and original transoms. The 21st century upgrades include light-giving windows, efficient basement storage and a private patio.
