The Hilltop Neighborhood

It is hard to believe that Denver’s prestigious Hilltop neighborhood was originally developed as a country suburb of Denver. Today, this charming urban neighborhood, which is located just east of Cherry Creek, is in the center of central Denver Real Estate.

Hilltop, which was primarily developed between 1920-1940, is widely known for its distinctive Tudor architecture but also features other architectural styles including colonials and more modern styles. Hilltop’s residents take pride in larger lots that sit back further from the street than those in other Denver neighborhoods. Alleyways are noticeable absent due to the fact that Hilltop’s lots were intended for automobiles rather than streetcars. The neighborhood gets its name from the high elevation of the area, and therefore offers some wonderful views of the Front Range mountains.

Hilltop, which is bounded by Colorado Boulevard, Alameda, 6th Avenue, and Holly, is only a few minutes from downtown Denver and the Cherry Creek shopping district. Hilltop residents can easily access downtown Denver’s rich entertainment and cultural opportunities. In addition, the historical Cranmer Park, one of thee parks, provides endless recreational opportunities.
