Montclair Homes for Sale, Denver
Montclair's homes for sale are built on land with an interesting history. During Denver’s infancy in the 1880s, Montclair was designated as a wealthy and independent township, completely separate from the urban decadence of the "Wild West" found in the big city’s brothels and saloons. During the height of the gold rush, newly-wealthy and prohibitionist residents isolated themselves from the city in a utopia of large, multi-storied, multi-acre lots reminiscent of wealthy suburbs found on the east coast.
The collapse of the gold boom in the 1890s also brought about the collapse of Montclair. In the early 1900s it was incorporated into the city and county of Denver, where it remained sparsely populated. Cash-strapped landowners, impacted by the Great Depression, divided the huge acreages of land into parcels which were not developed until the 1940s and 1950s.
Today, this rich and diverse community is ready for its next real estate boom. Adjacent to the former University of Colorado Medical Center site on Colorado Blvd, this area is on the verge of being the next “It” location in Denver. Large plots of land, a wide assortment of homes of all shapes and sizes, renovated vintage properties, good schools, and an eclectic assortment of mom-and-pop businesses give the community its own feel.
