Cherry Knolls in Centennial offers homeowners a “little bubble” of everything they need without sitting on top of any nearby highways.
“It’s pretty central,” says Ann Winfrey, a West+Main real estate agent. “It’s pretty easy to get on 470 to Red Rocks, Lakewood, or Golden. It’s also not too far from I-25, but it’s not too close to the highway.”
With an easy drive to The Streets at SouthGlenn, Park Meadows, or Highlands Ranch to shop or dine, “almost everything you need is right here,” Winfrey says. “Cherry Knolls is its own bubble.”
She adds that the neighborhood is friendly, with good schools and a strong community feel.
“We have potential buyers who keep an eye on it, waiting for openings.”
The neighborhood offers potential buyers a mix of single-family homes and townhomes. Most of the homes were built in the 1960s and 1970s. The homes typically are contemporary, and when people renovate the houses, they play up the homes’ Mid-century modern features, Winfrey says.
The homes typically are 3,000 square feet with basements. Most are two stories, and a few are tri-level homes.
While prices typically range between $650,000 to $900,000, it’s not unusual to see houses sell for $1.2 million.
Interested buyers need to act quickly. Homes typically stay on the market for four days or less, Winfrey says.
The neighborhood’s townhomes, primarily built in the 1970s, are either smaller models without basements or larger homes with basements. At 1,500 to 1,900 square feet, the townhomes cost $475,000 to $500,000 and sell quickly.
Who’s moving in?
Neighborhood residents are a mix of ages and life stages, Winfrey says.
Cherry Knolls’ large homes draw families who want more space, while the townhomes appeal to people downsizing or families with young children who want to get into the Littleton Public Schools District.
With walking paths that connect to Big Dry Creek Trail, Cherry Knolls appeals to dog owners and active people who enjoy spending time outside.
The neighborhood pool also draws residents and becomes a summer focal point, Winfrey says.
“People enjoy being here and spending time with their neighbors.”
