(Part 2 of my Park Hill Neighborhood Series. See Part 1 here)
Denver’s renowned and nationally acclaimed Park Hill has a secret! The north and east areas are now among the most popular and desirable areas of Metro Denver. These two areas as outlined on the east side of this Central Denver Map have been shunned over the last decade; but now are being sought after by home buyers and investors alike.
These solid brick homes with hardwood floors, coved ceilings, and glass block windows are now in demand. Where else can you purchase a 900-1100 square foot home in good condition with a full basement in the $200,000 range.
There has previously been a stigma on this area of northeast Park Hill due to the changing times and certain individuals who were deemed as trouble makers in our society by many. The crime rate was troublesome for potential homes buyers. But, now there are some specific reasons for the change in attitude toward these areas of Park Hill.
First, the residents have taken measures to clean up their community and remove the troublemakers from the area through a form of neighborhood watch. You can check out crime reports by address right here on this website at Denver Crime.
Second, the advent of Stapleton and its many amenities raised the awareness of the true values of the homes, logistics, and location. Residents of northeast Denver are very close to all amenities Stapleton has offer. Good restaurants, a great King Soopers grocery store, shops and entertainment are all open to the public. and, Park Hill residents are just minutes away.
Third, when the market demanded more decent homes in the $150,000 to $300,000 price range, these areas began to pop up in the searches and the tours of the neighborhoods revealed what great values these great homes are.
My family has resided in Northeast Park Hill since the mid 60’s and I highly recommend it. I have lived here comfortably and enjoyed the Park Hill neighborhood. I have no qualms about helping my friends and clients purchase a piece of Denver history in the form of a older, Park Hill home for sale.
Now we are seeing not only move up buyers and downsizing buyers from the community; but many buyers coming in from the suburbs and buyers relocating here from outside of Denver.
