Named the best place to live in Colorado by ranking site, Holly Hills doesn’t have the same name recognition as better known areas like Boulder or Wash Park. So why should this area be on your radar? Well, out of the 513 areas in Colorado that Niche ranked, Holly Hills – a neighborhood of around 2,800 people – hit the trifecta of being named not only as of the best place to live but also the best place to raise a family and the best place to retire.

Located about halfway between downtown Denver and the Denver Tech Center, Holly Hills is nestled between Monaco Parkway and Interstate 25, north of Hampden Avenue and south of East Iliff Avenue.

The area is made up primarily of residential real estate built between 1940 and 1969. Homes here are generally considered older and well-established. Holly Hills real estate is mainly made up of medium-sized (three or four bedrooms) to large (four, five or more bedroom) single-family homes and townhomes.

Other standouts about Holly Hills includes the cost of living, the share of residents with a college degree, available and attainable housing, the quality of public schools and the diversity of residents in terms of age, ethnicity, and incomes.

Close proximity to transportation and excellent schools are also a huge draw for young families or those looking to start a family. In addition to being family-friendly, Holly Hills has no shortage of shopping, entertainment, and things to do.
