Denver Real Estate – It’s a vision of beauty and class that reflects the superior craftsmanship of its era. A charming, historical Denver Square built in 1900 in West Washington Park is now listed by Doug Hutchins and Leslie Heldenbrand of The Kentwood Companies. Located at 117 E. 2nd Avenue, no other home in the neighborhood offers a similar appeal. From the beautiful straw plaster ceiling carvings in the foyer, parlor and dining room, to the very rare “freedom torch” leaded glass windows, this home is truly a one-of-a-kind residence that must be viewed first-hand to truly appreciate.
Priced at $495,000, this elegant home is distinguished by a $250,000 restoration that has preserved the home’s historic ambiance. The owners will enjoy an oak carved staircase, more than 1,800 square feet of fir and oak floors, plus 18-inch trim and a built-in hutch that defies description. Brass radiators were updated by not altered visually, and the home’s walls were repaired and modeled after the Molly Brown House on Pennsylvania Street.
Crystal chandeliers from historic Denver homes hang from the ceilings, and two fireplaces were restored to their original glory, including vintage tile surround. The Kitchen includes a Heartland Stove with six gas burners, and the Italian and Spanish marble in the home has been enhanced with Egyptian tile appointments. The movie theater in the basement was modeled after the Mayan theatre and the Hurst Castle’s theatre in California.
The main floor living space is ideal for entertaining, and the kitchen now includes stainless steel appliances, plantation shutters, and a breakfast nook. The fortunate buyers will appreciate three large bedrooms with custom woodwork and large closets, and the master bath is highlighted by marble throughout, a restored claw foot tub, and custom lighting. All windows are new and very energy efficient, and the large private lot includes a one-car detached garage. The covered back porch features a large Koi pond, and the front of the home offers a large well-kept garden and shade trees.
This historic Denver Square includes three bedrooms, two baths, 1,640 finished square feet, and all appliances are included.
