Denver Court was established in the 1920s as a suburban enclave of homes developed by a group of doctors intent on protecting their property values. It is considered the city’s first area of fully modern, non-Victorian homes, and the first among Galveston neighborhoods to depart from the street grid pattern established in 19th-Century Galveston – keeping through traffic to a minimum. Commercial encroachment was avoided through the years. This neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places by virtue of its architectural diversity, with homes built in each decade from the 1920s to 1960s, with a wide range of scale as well – ranging from 1,200 to over 4,000 square feet. The typical residence is 2,000 square feet on a quarter-acre lot. The 65 properties in Denver Court are not Galveston Beach houses by any means, but they are a short walk to the Galveston Seawall and Gulf surf. Also nearby are groceries, dining, shopping, schools and parks. On an island high point near Galveston’s Mid-town, Denver Court is bounded by 43rd St., 52nd St., Avenue S and Avenue U.
People looking for real estate in Galveston will find Denver Court prices range from the $200,000s to $800,000s.
