Hilltop/Crestmoor Neighborhood

Denver's Delight!

 

The Denver neighborhood of Hilltop was developed in the 1940's and 1950's but offers larger classic Tudor home styles as well as more mid-century architecture of ranches and two story homes. Hilltop is one of Denver's wealthiest neighborhoods and features many newly constructed homes as the older, smaller homes are scraped and larger mansions constructed, since these neighborhoods have larger sized lots than many Denver neighborhoods.  The neighborhood hosts an enclave of architectural charm and diversity, and an abundance of mature landscaping. Hilltop also diverges from the traditional grid street system, as the neighborhood’s southern portion has many curved and arching streets.

The Edgewater Neighborhood

A Community Rich in History

Edgewater is nestled between the cities of Denver, Wheat Ridge and Lakewood.  It offers a unique small town atmosphere within minutes of the downtown Denver area.  The community provides a quality of life enjoyed by past and present generations.

The history of Edgewater, Colorado is closely tied to the development of Sloans Lake.  The lake was created in 1861 when Thomas Sloan, hoping to farm the area, dug a well that overflowed and flooded 200 acres.  The City's name 'Edgewater' was derived from its proximity to the water's edge.  The formation of the lake initially attracted a few fisherman and ice-cutters to the area.  However, it wasn't until the 1887 establishment of Fort Logan that
