One of the city's most scenic, most expensive, and most sought-after residential neighborhoods is Hilltop, sitting just east of Cherry Creek. Hilltop is a one square mile neighborhood bordered by Colorado Boulevard and Holly Street, from 6th Avenue to Alameda Avenue. Cranmer Park, once the highest point in Denver, is the star of the neighborhood thanks to its large, open meadow, mountain views, and six-foot sundial. The neighborhood was one of the firsts in Denver to be planned based on the car instead of the streetcar. So, streets are ﬂat and wide, and most garage access is not through alleyways. Cherry Creek's extensive shops and dining are just down the street.
Between Colorado Blvd, 6h Avenue, Alameda, and Quebec. The well-kept streets and lawns and central location make it a real estate hotspot for Denver’s best. The houses here, many rebuilt or updated with “pop-tops,” include a collection of styles from traditional English Tudors as well as sprawling custom 1950’s ranch-style homes and pop-tops that began about two decades ago. Full of aristocracy, Hilltop has its own landmark-the spectacular Cranmer Mansion, a Mediterranean renaissance masterpiece, sits at Hilltop’s highest point. Two parks grace the area, making the surrounding homes that much more desirable. While Robinson is famous for its sledding hill, Cranmer's 23-acre space was built with a magnificent inner city view of the Front Range, a seven-and-a-half foot sundial, and a city ordinance that will never allow buildings to block the western view.
