Between the 1890s and 1920s the City Beautiful Movement swept across the nation as developers, architects and urban planners sought to create a utopian urban environment in which the grand, well-designed physical space could mask, or perhaps eliminate, a city's underlying social issues including crime and poverty. Daniel Burnham's creation of the White City in Chicago for the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition was the best example of this movement but its influence was exhibited nationwide, including here in Denver.
The East 7th Avenue Historic District is a direct result of the City Beautiful Movement's influence and this stunning residence, perched high above Ogden Street is a sterling example of a bygone era.
Presiding over the front entry steps is a full-width covered porch that is enveloped by lush vegetation. It's here that guests catch a glimpse of the elegant beadboard ceiling detail and hardwood flooring hinting that what's beyond the front door is something special.
The grand entry foyer exhibits an array of design details. The exquisite chandelier grabs your attention but it's the intricate hand-carved detail on the stair-railing that receives our affection.
“There are plenty of historic properties in Denver but none of them combined the quality, personality, charm, versatility, and location of this home on this lot - I fell in love immediately.”
