Here is a rare opportunity to own a historic 19th century mansion and its carriage house in the heart of Denver. This historic Castle can be zoned commercial for events, an apartment building, or a hotel. Currently, the residence is a primary home. Built in 1889, the exterior of this exclusive residence features locally sourced lava stone from Castle Rock that evokes an aura of European pageantry and royalty. The castle evolved from a show home, later serving as the residence of many prominent Denver families. Over time, it has housed renters as an apartment, was a designated processing center for parolees and later, became a famous bed and breakfast. Covering 6,308 square feet of living space in the castle and 2335 sqft in the carriage house, youll be struck by the remarkable woodwork inside. From the deftly crafted fireplace mantles to intricate wainscoting to the ornate sweeping multi-level staircase, the craftsmanship and detail is truly breathtaking. The main floor is replete with noteworthy details including a masterful dining room, oversized windows, soaring ceilings and charisma that can only be found in a nearly 150-year-old home. Lodged through the home are original stained glass pieces that provide an ethereal aura that just might take you back in time. Youll find multiple kitchens, with new appliances and quartz countertops, magnificent hardwood floors throughout, and cozy sitting and parlor rooms, compliments of the turret that spans all three stories in the main home. The interior of this remarkable home is matched only by the exterior grounds and outdoor living spaces. Situated just blocks away from City Park, Cheesman Park, and the 17th Avenue restaurant district, this celebrated residence is sure to impress the most discerning home buyer.
