Virginia Vale

 

Virginia Vale also known as Washington Virginia Vale offers very convenient access to the same amenities as many of its neighboring, high end communities such as Hilltop, Bonnie Brae and Crestmoor. Sharing a common boundary with The City of Glendale, residents are within walking distance to major retail outlets including, Infinity Park, dining, hotels and the future site of Glendale’s Riverwalk development. Virginia Vale is home to the locally famed Four Mile Historic House and Park, McMeen Elementary School and Garland Park. Garland Park is one of Denver’s larger parks which includes numerous baseball fields, volleyball courts and Lollipop Lake. The entire south boundary of this neighborhood is comprised of the Cherry Creek Bike Path, providing excellent pedestrian access all the way to Downtown Denver via Glendale and the Cherry Creek neighborhood.

The majority of Virginia Vale’s housing is comprised of mid century brick ranch homes ranging in size from about 1050sf to 1250sf on their main levels plus full basements. One of Denver’s early suburban neighborhoods, Virginia Vale was an ideal community for many young families due to its location and price point. The sales price of a new build in Virginia Vale in 1959 was approximately $17,000. Lot sizes in neighborhoods east of Colorado Blvd. including Virginia Vale, tend to be larger than many older neighborhoods in Denver. Lot sizes range from about 7000 sf to 10,000 sf. For those home buyers with budgets closer to Denver’s median price range, Virginia Vale is typically a highly sought after community.
