Homes for Sale in Park Hill, Denver Co

Let’s take a closer look at an established neighborhood in Denver CO with a lot to offer: Park Hill.

Why Do People Live here?

Park Hill is a beautiful neighborhood made up primarily of detached houses, with quite varied and lovely architecture. The neighborhood was mostly built from the 1920s through the ’50s, but some of the houses date back to the late 1800s, and some lots have been razed and replaced by ultra modern new homes from this decade.

Architectural styles range from the famous Denver Square, to Bungalows, to 1940s and ’50s Ranch styles, Spanish, Pueblo, Mediterranean Revival, and Minimal Traditional. It’s such an eclectic neighborhood!
