Spotlight On Park Hill
Originally platted in 1887, early Park Hill was a “street car suburb” away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Denver and has a very interesting history which tells a lot about the social/racial prejudices and integration patterns in real estate and our communities. Located east of City Park between Colfax, Colorado, 52nd and Quebec/Syracuse it includes the sub-areas of Northeast, North, and South Park Hill - each with their own vibe. The variety of architecture in the area makes it one of my favorites to visit or do showings; so many lovely Victorians, Arts and Crafts, Bungalows, Mid-Century Moderns, and Tudors. But it’s a bit steep to buy a home here with current home listings range in price from $270,000 (a rare find) up to $1.5 million and a median price of $572,000. The Greater Park Hill Community neighborhood association supports an annual Garden Walk and Garage Sale and the community has other get togethers such as weekly walk2connect (Tues am), biking group (varies, weekly), and a New Parents group. Park Hill Community Bookstore, Spinelli’s Market, and Mod Living furniture store are good stops to get the local flavor and of course City Park and all that it offers are just a short bike ride away.
