Eastridge is a Colorado community of 438 single-family homes in the city of Aurora along the south eastern border of Denver. Eastridge homes are on large lots with mature landscapes featuring tall trees on broad streets with a perimeter wall for security and noise isolation. The homes were built in the 1960’s and early 70s with a wide variety of models and many custom homes as well. The subdivision is located in the Cherry Creek school district with Eastridge elementary within walking distance. There is abundant nearby shopping and restaurants and the light rail station is one mile from Eastridge. Recreation opportunities abound with the close proximity to the Cherry Creek State Park, easy access to bike trails and Aurora’s Utah Park and swimming facilities. All of these amenities make Eastridge an attractive community.
John K. Walker originally purchased the land, where Eastridge is located, from the U.S. government in 1891. Then in 1962 Shufka & Shelton and Rossmiller & Thomas purchased the land for subdivision to develop single family homes. The development was divided into eight filings over the period from 1962 through 1973. The last home was built on the only remaining lot in 2007.
In October 1979, the subdivision was annexed to the City of Aurora. Street lights and other city services became available for residents.
In 2000 the perimeter wall was built which has served as an example for many other communities in City of Aurora. Shortly after the wall was erected, residents received a grant to install rock on both Yale and Iliff between the wall and the sidewalk. The installation work was accomplished by Eastridge residents.
In 2006 the Regional Transportation District completed the installation of the Nine Mile light rail station. Making downtown Denver an easy thirty minute hassle free ride.
