Exploring Mayfair Montclair
Brick houses and mature trees line the streets of two of Denver’s oldest neighborhoods – Mayfair and Montclair.
Originally designed as a wealthy suburb, Montclair homes were required to be at least three stories high. The neighborhood started out with ambitious plans that included museums, health spas, and casinos. Mayfair is Montclair's sister neighborhood, and together, Montclair and Mayfair stretch from East Colfax down to 6th Avenue and from South Quebec west to Eudora Street.
Residents in these areas enjoy a quiet, historic neighborhood with a good mix of residential streets and businesses. In terms of housing, Montclair and Mayfair offer a rich mix of diverse architectural styles, from Tudor to Foursquare, to Queen Anne, to ranch, to cottages and more.
Homes here are typically listed anywhere from just under $500,000 to more than $1.2 million, however, buyers may be able to snag a “fixer upper” in the area at a lower price point. Montclair is also home to the oldest home association in Denver, the Historic Montclair Community Association Inc., which is 109 years old.
Although these neighborhoods are self-contained and may feel secluded, they are also convenient. People living in Montclair and Mayfair can head to nearby Stapleton, Cherry Creek and the East Colfax corridor for more extensive shopping and entertainment.
