Hilltop

A Residential Haven, Celebrated for It's History and Elegance.
 

Set against the vibrant backdrop of Denver's southeast side, Hilltop charms with its unique mix of classic beauty and contemporary amenities. Bordered by 6th Avenue to the north, Alameda Avenue to the south, Holly Street to the east, and Colorado Boulevard to the west, Hilltop presents a stunning landscape while offering an ideal location. As you wander through Hilltop, you'll be enchanted by the architectural diversity and idyllic surroundings that paint a captivating picture of the neighborhood's evolution, while enjoying an elevation 200 feet higher than the rest of the city.

 

The wide, leafy streets are lined with a harmonious mix of new builds and classic homes featuring vintage Denver architecture and sizable lots. Each home tells its story from brick bungalows to newly renovated Colonials and Tudors, and from quaint mid-century modern and expansive ranches to Mediterranean Revival and oversized new constructions. The lush, mature trees and fresh foliage create a canopy of green, offering shade and tranquility. Houses are set further from the sidewalks, providing more front yard space and enhancing privacy. This blend of the old and new makes Hilltop a truly special community.

 

Once upon a time, Hilltop was just that—a hill. But the story of its transformation into one of Denver's premier neighborhoods is nothing short of remarkable. In 1883, the construction of City Lateral Canal, an extension of the Highline Canal, began diverting water from the South Platte River, turning Hilltop into a habitable oasis. This new flow of water made the area livable and highly desirable. By May 1893, Hilltop was officially annexed into the City of Denver, setting the stage for its evolution. Fast forward to today, and Hilltop boasts more than 22 distinct home styles, showcasing a beautiful display of architectural diversity. From its humble beginnings as a simple hill, Hilltop has grown into a nearly entirely residential haven, celebrated for its history and elegance.
