Denver, Colorado is one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S, filled with a rich history, fine arts, culture, diversity, and resources. Many young professionals and families are occupying the city as it continues to develop and thrive.
The neighborhood is steeped in history, much of which is evident in its architectural styles and real estate landscape.
Whittier’s shape was influenced by the Denver fire of 1863, transitioning the quality of construction from wooden form to brick structure. The area was named after Whittier Elementary School along 25th Avenue and Downing St. The school got its name as a tribute to John Greenleaf Whittier, a nineteenth-century American poet and abolitionist.
The neighborhood is bounded by MLK Jr. Blvd. to the North, N. Downing St. to the West, E. 23rd Avenue to the South, and York St. to the East. Neighboring areas include Five Points, Skyland, Cole, and City Park West.
Whittier is home to roughly 5,000 residents from all walks of life, welcoming a varied demographic.
Properties in Whittier typically have tudor, bungalow, and contemporary modern style designs. These homes generally feature 1 to 3 bedrooms and 1 to 2 bathrooms with either partially or fully finished basements, parking spaces, and attached or detached garages.
There are new listings on the market for homes in Whittier as the neighborhood continues to develop. It offers a wide variety of amenities along with reasonable market prices. Unsurprisingly, houses only stay on the market for six days before being sold - routinely above list price. Whittier continues to grow and attract young professionals, retirees and families alike.
Residents of Whittier love its suburban feels, with plenty of parks, amenities and activities. It boasts ethnic and economic diversity, with a strong social connection and safety, which are just a couple of the reasons why residents love this area.
Whittier Neighborhood Association is active at maintaining the integrity of the area and providing social gathering opportunities. Residents routinely participate in events such as neighborhood clean-up day, summer movie night, and the Whittier neighborhood block party. There is also the Whittier Neighborhood Community Center which you can be rented for meetings, birthday parties, or private gatherings.
Public schools serving the Whittier neighborhood include Manual High School, St. Elizabeth School, Barrett Elementary School, East High School, and Stapleton High School.
Meanwhile, the best part of living in Denver is the number of parks around the city. Whittier is one of those neighborhoods jam-packed with parks that can be found at almost every corner.
