Home in Cherry Hills VillageRecently, The Wall Street Journal did a spotlight piece on Cherry Hills Village and called it "one of the most affluent communities in the USA."

It features art by Clyfford Still and is split into five different galleries. Each of these galleries features a different color including, black, white, blue, yellow and red. Still features many dramatic textures with vertical forms and an interesting use of color.

One of the areas becoming very popular for both re-location and as a new location for new residents is Tennyson Street. This market is heating up and many of the best homes near downtown are located here.
