For those inspired by the beauty and detail of Craftsman architecture, few listings in Denver compare to the prestigious 7th Avenue Parkway residence located at 675 Humboldt Street, exclusively listed by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty. A complete restoration of an authentic Denver four square has been achieved by capturing the simplicity and grace of the Arts and Crafts era in this unique and stunning home.
“This home is truly a unique opportunity in Denver for the connoisseur of Arts and Crafts architecture,” said LIV Sotheby’s International Realty broker, Debra Fagan. “Every detail was designed with close attention to the highest level of authentic Craftsman finish, while at the same time updating the entire house to the very best of modern technology.”
In collaboration with the Denver Landmark Commission, the architect and builder, Iris Building Group, seamlessly achieved this comprehensive historic renovation, that spanned nearly two and half years of planning and execution, and simultaneously incorporated modern luxuries into the historic home.
The original 1908 four square required extensive renovation and expansion, but the residence’s original structure and premiere location made the home well worth the restoration. The home was completely gutted, re-engineered and designed with attention to every detail, transforming it into a genuine example of a high Craftsman style home.
The reconstruction of the home incorporates many of the elements of Craftsman architecture, including a large reconstructed covered porch, the use of exceptionally fine mill work, period hardware and lighting fixtures, attention to scale, five indoor fireplaces incorporating artisan hand painted tile surrounds and an expansive gourmet kitchen that is the heart of the home.
The home features an Old-World library with wall to wall quarter sawn white oak built in bookshelves and ceiling and a stunning William Oh’s chef’s kitchen with Carrera marble island and two pantries.
All of the electrical, plumbing, HVAC, sewer lines, water lines and gas lines have been replaced and upgraded to the highest standard, and all of the original windows were removed, rebuilt and replaced by Lyons Historic Windows.
A lower level includes a family room, full workout room with adjoining sauna and steam shower, and custom 1500 bottle premium redwood wine cellar. The third floor study includes an en-suite bath, roof deck and Marquis hot tub, and could be converted to a fifth bedroom
The design includes much of what would have been used in the most beautiful Craftsman homes, including box beam ceilings, colonnades, custom full inset built ins, interior corbels, hand cut staircase railings, leaded art glass, mahogany wood floor inserts and Bradbury & Bradbury art wall treatments.
The home features four bedrooms, each with en-suite bath featuring period tile, marble floors, pedestal sinks, and claw foot tubs, and the elegant master suite features a fireplace, large walk in closet and luxurious Carrera marble bath with soaking tub and steam shower.
675 Humboldt Street is listed for sale by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty for $3,600,000.
