We absolutely love the history and natural charm that the city of Denver has to offer! With modern architecture being the most common design approach at the moment, it's nice to switch gears and see what the market has to offer in our outstanding Historic Districts. This week we saw three gorgeous homes in three separate historic districts that just hit the market.
Our first stop is in the Historic District of Witter-Cofield. Once in the Town of the Highlands, Witter-Cofield has housed many of Denver's upper and middle working class citizens and consists of homes predominantly built in 1880 through the 1940's.
Just listed at $1,295,000, 2138 Grove Street was originally built in 1896, but underwent a number of recent updates in 2020 to greatly increase the value of this home while preserving its charm. This scenic Queen Anne Victorian consists of 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and is 2,030 square feet.
Recent updates include restored oak floors, renovated bathrooms, and a completely renovated 3rd floor. Our favorite features of this home are the classic wrap around porch, and the on site Carriage House situated in the backyard right in front of the garden! Renovated in 2012, this quaint Carriage House is the perfect guest home! It is 225 square and consists of vaulted ceilings, a kitchen, full bath, breakfast bar with seating, and a separate hot water heater.
Our next stop is to the lovely Baker Neighborhood Historic District! Housing the most Queen Anne Victorian homes in Denver and neighboring Broadway's Main Street, Baker continues to attract residents due to it's charm and the conveniences of its urban location.
Just listed at $1,200,000, 115 W Irvington Place is the oldest home we bring you to today, built in 1890. At 3,338.11 square feet and consisting of 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, this classic home has been able to preserve much of its timeless craftsmanship.
Once again, we note our favorite feature of this property being the Carriage House situated adjacent to the main home. The draping stunning green vine over the vibrant colored brick is simply a vision, and allows for a perfect studio apartment or guest suite.
Our last, but absolutely not least, stop is the Morgan's Subdivision Historic District. The majority of homes here were built between 1910 and 1930 with styles including Classic Revivals, Mediterranean Revivals, and Tudor.
817 N Race Street is a prime example of a Mediterranean Revival designed by Jaccques Benedict, and originally known as the "Neusteter House". After being off the market for 50 years, this stunning home is now listed at $3,300,000! At 7,120 square feet and consisting of 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, this grand home has managed to preserve much of its charm, transporting residents to another era.
As if the home didn't already take your breath away, our favorite feature is the private entrance to Denver's Botanic Gardens located on the property!
Th historic districts we have visited have unique character-defining features that provide distinctive history of the time and the people who inhabited them before. Each are imperative for preserving architectural history in the city, and we are so excited to list these stunning properties now available within them.
