The Hilltop neighborhood gets it name from the fact that it is higher in elevation than the surrounding parts of the city. In the center of the neighborhood is Cranmer Park, with a beautful view of the Front Range mountains. It’s been one of the most sought after neighborhoods for young families and professionals alike. What’s different about the beginnings of Hilltop is that it was designed differently on purpose. The neighborhood was one of the first in Denver to be planned based on the car instead of the streetcar. Most of the houses in Hilltop were individually designed, leading to a mix of modern and more traditional homes. It’s just a hop skip and jump to Cherry Creek North…and the plethora of shopping and eating galore.
Montclair (and it’s sister neighborhood Mayfair) is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Denver. Along the tree lined avenues, you’ll find a rich mix of diverse architectural styles from Tudors to Denver Square’s to Queen Annes, classic Ranch style to cottages and more. It’s also home to the oldest home association in Denver. The Historic Montclair Community Association Inc. is 109 years old! Montclair was originally designed as a wealthy suburb, with homes required to be at least three stories high and grand plans for museums, health spas and casinos. It’s a cool, calm and collected neighborhood and home to one of very few castles in Denver.
