highlands: Colorado Architecture #3 | Highlands - 08/24/08 10:07 AM
West Hayward Place is one of my favorites streets in Denver for viewing homes from the Victorian Architectural Period.  These homes were built in the late 1800's and reside in the popular Highlands area, which is approximately a five minute drive from downtown Denver.  The street is very peaceful, with old trees with large canopies providing blankets of shade.  Victorian Cottages primarily line the street, with their acute roof slopes creating a pattern of triangles lined up.  Upon closer look, you will see what makes these homes so unique; the detail in the woodworking on the gables and the use of … (0 comments)

A revitalization has been occurring in various historic Denver neighborhoods, particularly in the general Highlands (Denver NW) and Washington Park areas.  This revitalization has included an increasing number of property scrapes.  On the scraped lots, new homes are being built, in styles including Prairie, Craftsman, and Modern.  These historic neighborhoods, in the past, have been comprised primarily of bungalow's, craftman style homes and Victorian style homes, so the homes of modern design are new to the landscape.  Many of the local residents would like to preserve the architectural integrity of the neighborhoods and do not appreciate the new development, and in … (0 comments)
