The neighborhood is bordered on the west by Colorado Boulevard, on the north by Severn Ave. and on the south by East Alameda Avenue. The Eastern border is uneven, but includes Monaco Parkway at the northeast corner of the neighborhood and then zigzags south and west to the west of Crestmoor Park. Part of the Southern border shares a boundary with the City of Glendale.
One of Denver’s more prestigious neighborhoods, Hilltop enjoys a central location, well-kept streets and a growing collection of affluent homes. Development started in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, the neighborhood now includes English Tudors, 50’s ranch style homes, and custom homes worth well over a million dollars. Cranmer Mansion, an aristocratic architectural masterpiece, sits at 200 Cherry Street, Hilltop’s highest point. George Cranmer, the original owner of the mansion and credited for developing many local parks – including Red Rocks and Winter Park – developed Hilltop’s Mountain View Park and what became known as Cranmer Park. With a city ordinance that will never allow building to block the western view, the 23-acre Cranmer Park has a magnificent view of the Front Range. With highly rated schools and convenient access to downtown and the Cherry Creek shopping district, Hilltop remains a favored choice for Denver’s well-established citizens.
