The beautiful San Rafael Historic District, touted as one of Denver’s premier neighborhoods a century ago, fell into disrepair during the 1960s and 1970s. But for the last 30 years a handful of its residents, including the developers of St. James Row, have worked to recapture San Rafael’s original charm and allure -- making it a highly sought after urban neighborhood filled with professional people.
San Rafael is located only nine blocks from the heart of Downtown Denver but, unlike the urban scene, San Rafael offers tree-lined streets, beautiful homes and a wonderful sense of community.
Bustling 17th Avenue is only five blocks away and gives residents a multitude of options for dining and entertainment. For entertaining at home, Marczyk Fine Foods, a newly remodeled Safeway and several upscale wine shops provide everything a serious gourmet or a casual cook could need.
Recreation is only minutes away at Benedict Fountain Park, where neighbors can be found throwing frisbees, walking dogs and lounging by the fountain. Denver’s City Park is also within walking distance and offers golf, tennis, City Park Zoo, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and all the park amenities. San Rafael is at the center of it all!
