Denver Home Designed By Red Rocks Architect Hits The Market For $7 Million

Real Estate

Every so often, an architect comes along whose vision and designs are so tied to the fabric of the city in which they erect their masterpieces that it becomes difficult to imagine the same place without their influence—would Chicago be the same without Daniel Burnham or Barcelona without Antoni Gaudí?

In Denver, that architect is Burnham Hoyt. Born and raised in North Denver, Hoyt is responsible for some of Mile High City’s most iconic structures, notably Denver’s Central Library and Red Rocks Amphitheater.

Now, one of Hoyt’s residential designs is on the market for $6.99 million.

Located just south of the Denver Country Club in the affluent enclave, Washington Park, the 1941 mansion displays many trademarks of Hoyt’s style, including the melding of various traditional architectural eras and a unique combination of ornamentation and simplicity.

A front facade of rounded dormer windows with black metal balustrades, brick quoins and an elaborate door framed by columns evokes comparisons to stately countryside American manors.

A similar elegance continues into the home’s art -nouveau-inspired interior. A grand foyer encompasses a forged spiral staircase, a cylinder chandelier and a decorative ceiling. Ornate trim, molding and railing throughout enhances the mansion’s timeless charm.

John Jaster, who shares the listing with fellow Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate agent Vivian Murciano, says these decorative elements will be an important selling point for the right buyer. “Our buyers will appreciate paneling, crown molding and custom arches, and the opportunity to find a historic home with a unique, artisan style.”

The main floor includes two spacious living spaces with fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling French doors, a sunroom with hand-painted terra-cotta tile flooring and a vintage wet bar.

Ascending via the foyer staircase or elevator, the upstairs fits three bedrooms and the primary suite, complete with a fireplace, two changing areas and a walk-in closet.

Covering two acres of lush pine and oak forested land, the property accommodates a stream, pond and gardens, as well as multiple patios and a pool.

Centered by its namesake, a 155-acre green space featuring two lakes, public gardens and sports facilities, Washington Park is known as a serene getaway set inside a cityscape where Denverites come to exercise, relax or gather for community events. Informally dubbed “Wash Park” by locals, the southern neighborhood borders South Pearl Street and South Gaylord, both home to a wide array of boutique shops, fine dining and galleries.
