|A beautiful bit of history and tradition is tucked away in the heart of Cherry Hills Village. The Village Tennis, Riding and Swim Club is a glowing gem with a rich architectural history, creating a legacy of family fun and lasting memories for over 40 years. Generations have grown up at the Village Club; a community of families dedicated to preserving equestrian activities, tennis, and swimming in a family oriented environment.
This unique members club is situated just west of Dahlia on East Belleview Avenue. The 10 acre parcel that is now the Village Club was originally a privately owned horse stable built in 1929. The massive stone barn was designed by the well-known Denver architect, Temple H. Buell, who was a dear friend of the owner, Florence Kistler. At the time the barn was built, a swimming pool was constructed, as well as a magnificent stone fireplace and outdoor kitchen where the owner, with the help of her two daughters, Florence and Frances, entertained many elite Denver families. A small bus ferried socialites from the city to the stables for horseback riding, picnics and weekend fun.
Since those early years, the grand stone stables have been remodeled and function as the main clubhouse and historic centerpiece of the club’s facilities. After a tragic fire in November 1998, a modern barn was built to stable members' horses as well as the horses used in the riding school program.
Each step in the development of The Village Tennis Riding and Swim Club involved many hours of active, volunteer participation of members of the club. With a varied list of social and sport activities, members enjoy the club year round. Club activities have always encouraged the interaction of all ages.
