LIV Sotheby’s International Realty broker Janet Kritzer lists historic 1910 Mediterranean Revival Mansion on a half-acre in the East 7th Avenue Historic District for $3,495,000. Best known for its rich Denver history, the home was designed by architects William F. Fisher and Arthur A. Fisher for oil tycoon Charles Orchard and his wife Mabel and is filled with authentic period details. Most recently the mansion appeared on the fifteenth season of reality television series Top Chef.
“This home is truly exquisite in every detail, with exceptional elegance and stunning craftsmanship,” says listing broker Janet Kritzer of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty. “The renovations have been done with such respect to the integrity and historical significance. An amazing masterpiece.”
The nine-bedroom, six-bathroom estate includes 11,346-square-feet of gracious living and entertaining with original woodwork restored to perfection. Enter through the grand foyer to find a dramatic double staircase which leads to a focal point mezzanine for an open and expansive feel. A majestic great room offers 800-square-feet of raised paneling and wainscoting, anchored by a stately fireplace and ample windows streaming an abundance of natural light. French doors with original hardware open to an inviting covered terrace.
“The integrity and characteristics are felt throughout the home today,” adds Kritzer. “Stone quoins and second floor balconettes accent the French influence in this Mediterranean Revival residence that has been emulated throughout premier neighborhoods for the past 100 years.”
