Historic charm abounds at every turn in Montclair, a neighborhood situated near the eastern edge of the city. Rich in stories from the past in its architecture and landmarks, it is also a modern suburban haven that is a favorite of families in the Denver Metro Area.
Montclair’s streets are lined with beautiful established trees that serve as a reminder of the deep roots of the locale. What began as a suburb originally incorporated in 1888 was then annexed by Denver in 1903, triggering a flurry of activity in the neighborhood’s landscaping, transportation infrastructure, and more. Thanks to preservation efforts, the neighborhood retains many of its historic structures and is a designated historic district in its own right. From the Montclair Civic Center to the stunning Richthofen Castle—both of which are on the National Register of Historic Places—to the gorgeous Queen Anne, Tudor, and bungalow-style homes, it is a truly special and significant area.
This historic nature provides a lovely setting for modern living as well, which is tranquil and pleasant in Montclair. Modern ranch homes as well as remodels and extensions dot the neighborhood’s distinguished streets. In addition to its own trendy eateries and shopping options, the locale also boasts effortless proximity to the exciting offerings of nearby Hilltop, Hale, and South Park Hill as well. With easy biking options, opportunities for outdoor recreation with its multiple parks, and access to the city’s urban center, it is a beautiful Denver locale to call home.
