In the past, this area has been one of Denver´s best “starter home” communities with modest frame and brick homes, built in the 1950´s and 1960´s, as well as large sprawling brick ranch homes. Several years ago a few builders purchased some of the older homes and began to build larger, new homes.
Now, Wellshire neighborhood is one of Denver’s most popular communities for renovations and new, custom home building. Several good builders like Steven Holben and Cooperleaf Homes have grabbed lots as they become available.
