Denver Fashion Week has just begun and design devotees from Denver and all over the country will gather to share their ideas on fashion, showcase their latest work, and connect with other artists. While clothing will undoubtedly be the star of fashion week, there are other areas of design within the Mile-High city that are deserving of the spotlight.
Denver is no cookie-cutter home community. The city’s rich history and constant growth have created an interesting variety of architectural styles of single-family homes, from classic Victorian-style homes to more angular, modern aesthetics. What’s more, these homes are not separated by neighborhood. Side-by-side, these unique and seemingly polar opposite design styles coexist, making it possible for homebuyers to find their colonial-style dream home in City Park or a mid-century modern masterpiece in Alamo Placita.
In the high-demand neighborhood of Cherry Creek North, known for being one of Denver’s more fashion-forward communities, sits 555 Clayton Street. This contemporary home designed by Denver-based architectural firm, Alvarez Morris, is a stunning example of the area’s trendier homes. This listing is currently priced at $3,045,000 by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty brokers, Terry Oaks and Cindy Oaks. Any new-age home wouldn’t be complete without an integrated technology system, and this property is no exception. This “smart home” can be controlled from anywhere with new technology that monitors virtually everything making it even more attractive to buyers looking for innovation in functionality and style.
In contrast to the modern marvel in Cherry Creek North, 1070 North Humboldt Street is a Georgian-Revival style luxury home in Cheesman Park that looks like something straight out of Great Britain, complete with towering white columns and stained-glass windows. This classically beautiful home is currently listed for $4,500,000, by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty brokers, Jared Blank, Steve Blank, and Bob Chase. The home, which was built in 1905 and designed by the Baerresen Brothers, has eight bedrooms, six bathrooms, a wine cellar, and European-style interior design elements you have to see to believe. As an added bonus, the home features formal entertaining rooms that most other homes don’t such as a grand ballroom, parlor, conservatory, and billiards room.
Nestled in the Country Club Historic neighborhood, 120 N Humboldt combines old-world elegance with more current touches. This incredible Tudor-style home with ivy crawling up the brick exterior is for sale for $3,600,000 and is listed by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty brokers, Trish Bragg and Maggie Armstrong. Designed by noted architect Jacques Benedict in 1912, this home has since had some upgrades that incorporate more contemporary design features such as the kitchen which has a double island for expanded counter space and all new appliances.
And for those buyers interested in townhomes, Denver has some stylish selections as well. Acoma Reserve, located in the Golden Triangle neighborhood and listed by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty brokers Deviree Vallejo and Liz Richards, is a sleek new development with a range of customizable interior finishes that can be tailored to match the buyer’s personal taste. Stop by this Saturday, November 9th, from 1 to 3pm for complimentary mimosas and a tour of the townhomes.
Denver has a wide range of architectural styles that come from the area’s diverse influences over the years. When looking for a home to suit your style, contact the real estate professionals at LIV Sotheby’s International Realty by visiting livsothebysrealty.com or calling 303.893.3200.
