Denver Neighborhoods – Montclair

http://selinathompson.co.uk/?m=pricing-of-loans-in-banks Denver Neighborhoods – Montclair

The connection between the infamous “Red Baron” of World War I and the Montclair neighborhood can be found in Baron Manfred von Richthofen — he was the uncle of the “Red Baron” and the father of Montclair! Richthofen arrived to Colorado from Germany in 1877. A man of many interests, he started the Downtown Denver Real Estate Company in 1881, was a novelist, and was also a founding member of the Denver Chamber of Commerce. With Matthias P. Cochrane, Richthofen established the Montclair Town and Improvement Company in 1885. Though promoted as a healthy place to live, away from the smoke and fumes of the city, the Montclair neighborhood was not drawing residents. Montclair

To demonstrate the wonderful quality of life there the Baron decided to build a castle of his own at 12th and Olive.  He had the Montclair ditch created, which was the lateral of the Highline Canal, eventually flowing into Montclair Park. The water supply enable many flowers, trees, and shrubs to be planted and thrive where the land had previously been essentially barren. In 1890, the Baron platted his own addition to Montclair and the building continued. With the Colorado Women’s College (1890) and the Fairmount Cemetery (1890), as well as the increasingly well-known reputation as a community for people suffering from lung-related illnesses, Montclair thrived. It was also home to the National Jewish Hospital and Agnes Memorial Sanatorium, one of the largest tuberculosis treatment centers in Colorado.

The area now known as Mayfair became part of Denver in 1902 but was not officially named until after World War II when returning GI’s settle in the ara. The area was attractive to these men and their families for many of the same reasons that Mayfair is popular today.

Denver Neighborhoods – Hilltop

Denver Neighborhoods – Hilltop

It is hard to believe that Denver’s prestigious Hilltop neighborhood was original 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 form the street than those in other Denver neighborhoods. Alleyways are noticeably absent due to the fact that Hilltop’s lots were intended for automobiles rather than streetcars. The neighborhood gets its name from the higher elevation of the area, and therefore offers some wonderful view of the Front Range Colorado Rocky Mountains.
