Denver housing styles

Denver is filled with a rich history that's evident in the range of housing styles in the city. Westward expansion saw more settlers coming across the plains in the late 1800's and homes in the area. One of the styles that's prevalent through Denver is the Denver Square, which, just like it sounds, is a square-shaped home that spreads evenly over two stories. The original homes were well built and are perfect for renovating. Other popular styles in Denver include craftsman, bungalow, Tudor, Gothic, Victorian, and even some Adobe revival. You will also see plenty of 70's split level homes, ranch style houses, and classic two-story homes. Your Realtor will know the perfect way to navigate housing styles in Denver to help you find one that meets your sense of style.
