The Crestmoor neighborhood is located to the north of Mayfair and east of Hilltop. Crestmoor is southeast of the city center in the area identified as Denver South East.
Crestmoor Denver Real Estate
The Crestmoor neighborhood is bordered on the west by Holly Street, the east by Monaco Parkway, the south by Alameda Avenue and the north by 6th Avenue. Varying between older neo-classic, colonial and Tudor mansions in the north and traditional ranchers and spit-levels in the south, Crestmoor Denver real estate is becoming integrated with the help of newer, neo-eclectic and contemporary mansions going up on almost every block.
Crestmoor Denver real estate is defined entirely by single-family homes with none of the duplexes found in areas like Country Club. It's an older suburban-city neighborhood, with sidewalks being scarce while streets are wider and less grid-like than in other areas. Thick, mature trees dominate front yards, casting shadows on quiet homes. Read More...
Considering its location and lack of immediate retail, the Crestmoor neighborhood is a pocket of calm and quiet in the midst of major thoroughfares. Homes for sale in Crestmoor are listed with the zip codes 80220 and 80204.
The centerpiece of the neighborhood is the sprawling Crestmoor Park, which includes a softball field, soccer field and tennis court. Although it lacks the amenities of other parks, Crestmoor is a wonderful field of green that’s perfect for running the dog, tossing around the football or just sprawling out for a Sunday afternoon picnic.
Retail in the area is limited to a small spot on the corner of 3rd Avenue and Holly that includes the decadent The Cheese Co, the wide-eyed wonder of Hollyhocks children's apparel and the cheesy/saucy delight of Basic Doc’s Pizza. However, with full access to nearby Cherry Creek North or Cherry Creek Shopping Center, there are more boutiques, salons, restaurants and upscale department stores within a ten minute car ride than almost anywhere else in the city. Also, 6th and Alameda are major thoroughfares leading to I-25, while Quebec (just eight blocks to the east) leads directly to I-70.
Crestmoor's in the midst of a minor facelift with new single-family construction happening on almost every block. It seems less like there’s expansion happening and more like older houses are being scraped and replaced by sharp-looking brick, stone and stucco mansions.
