Over the years in this space, we've periodically offered mini-tours of the most expensive homes for sale in Denver. And comparing the six priciest listings at present to the ones in our previous roundup, published in October 2016, demonstrates that the prices for luxury properties in the Mile High City remain sky-high, even if they've moderated a bit.
As evidence, note that the number-six abode goes for less than its equivalent from last year, and the same can be said of the residence in the top slot, even if its cost still hits eight figures.
One thing remains the same, however: The properties, seen in a slew of photos shared here, are absolutely gorgeous.
