The Bonnie Brae Neighborhood

Bonnie Brae is one of the most unique and attractive neighborhoods in Denver. It is predominantly a residential neighborhood with large family homes and  peaceful, tree lined streets.There is a rich diversity of architectural styles. Many of the homes date from the 1930s and 1940s, but there are some large new houses in the area. These new builds, which have replaced some of the ranch and Tudor style homes, are now considered characteristics of the neighborhood and are often highly sought after.

Bonnie Brae is a small community, which still feels something like a village despite having been surrounded by the city. There is an active neighborhood association that organizes social events such as the Bonnie Brae Wine Group. The neighborhood has a good selection of businesses that are within walking distance for most residents of the area. There are some particularly good cafes and restaurants in Bonnie Brae, as well as a range of useful stores. The Cherry Creek shopping center, Washington Park, and Downtown Denver can all easily be reached from Bonnie Brae, and this has made it a very desirable address. The famous homemade Bonnie Brae Ice Cream, Brae Tavern (some of the best pizza in Denver) are all anchors of this retail community.
