Original development of Hilltop had much to do more with water and transportation than anything else. The City Lateral Canal, branching off the Highline Canal, established a secure water source for the area and the street car line secured transportation. Development of Hilltop soon followed.

Not only is ‘Hill’ top one of the highest points in Denver but it’s also considered one of the wealthiest and most sought after neighborhoods. Large lots and abundant tree-lined streets accentuate the beautiful Tudor, Georgians and two-story Colonials. New build has come and you can clearly identify the luxurious Custom homes and with large lots that dot the neighborhood.

Securing the neighborhood is the 23 acre Cranmer Park. With sweeping views of the skyline and Front Ranch, Cranmer is well know for the large stone sundial installation on the West side of the park.

Although just a one square mile and often times lumped in as part of the Crestmoor neighborhood, Hilltop has its own distinction and characteristic that makes it such a desirable place to call home.

“This is the best neighborhood in Denver if you ask me. Because its a small neighborhood the community is really close and we watch out for each other. Most of my friends are neighbors we met at family outings and other community events functions.”
