The buzz: NorthCreek Courtyard an ‘urban oasis’

There is a buzz in Cherry Creek North, where world-class restaurants, galleries and shopping are all contained within 16 city blocks. Some are calling it a “LoDo for adults,” and others liken the setting to “Denver’s version of Rodeo Drive.” Whatever the case, Cherry Creek North is a great place to live, work and play, especially for those who can also enjoy the urban oasis at the ultra-exclusive NorthCreek Residences.

Homeowners at the NorthCreek have all of the great things Cherry Creek North has to offer outside their front door. And after a day of shopping, eating and strolling through the neighborhood, residents here can escape the energy of the area, and return home to a serene and quiet setting complete with of their own private courtyard. The NorthCreek Courtyard provides an amenity that few residential developments in the heart of a city can offer. It is an urban escape with elaborate gardens, all tucked behind private gated entries. Maintained by the landscaping firm Designs by Sundown, which won the Excellence in Landscaping, Use of Color Grand award from the Associated Landscape Contractors of Colorado for their work on the NorthCreek Courtyard, the courtyard provides residents and their guests with a sense of arrival and the best kind of “welcome home.”

The courtyard gardens are a palette of flowers, plants, shrubs, trees and grasses that combine brilliant colors, fragrances, and movements to inspire one’s senses. Described by Adam Hallauer of Designs by Sundown, the NorthCreek Courtyard is a “tranquil place where the residents can escape and enjoy a peaceful setting.” In the springtime, the courtyard blooms with annuals and bulbs offering up brilliant colors and sweet smells. Large shade trees keep the courtyard cool and inviting, so that NorthCreek residents can pleasantly enjoy some of the more exceptional flowers and plants.

As fall and winter set in, the courtyard’s gardens transform into a place of warmth, with rich colors and textures provided by the perennial plants and trees.

The entire NorthCreek Courtyard complement the condominium, Courtyard Flats and Brownstone residences at NorthCreek perfectly, playing off the Colorado native sandstone that was used to build a majority of the exclusive development. With craftsmanship, architecture, and design elements that set the highest standards, and reflect the best in terms of quality of life, the selection of homes at NorthCreek is becoming more and more limited due to the popularity of the exclusive development. Prices for the remaining inventory range from $1.395 million to $3 million.
