This stunning historic home, affectionately known as “The Pineapple House” for the welcoming statuary at the front gate, is one of two architectural works designed by Harry T.E. Wendell still standing in Denver. Constructed in 1894, the home has been extensively restored to its full grandeur; no expense was spared as this was a true labor of love. Countless hours were spent researching to find the style of finishes true to the period and architectural style in order to reveal the most poignant historic details. An original tile mosaic was painstakingly uncovered at the entry and the original crystal chandeliers were repaired, all restored to their prior splendor. A high-end and efficient heating/cooling system was installed along with a state-of-the-art humidification system to allow the home to “live” at a constant temperature and humidity level all year long. All of the bathrooms have been modernized; some of the new details include Waterford crystal chandeliers, nickel-plated custom finishes, and dramatic fixtures on each sink basin, all period correct or reflecting the opulence of the past. The resplendent master suite includes a grand fireplace made usable with gas ignition, a private sitting area, a soaking tub built for two, and a reproduction 1800s shower enclosure. The kitchen was redesigned to bring form and function back to the space, including premium stainless-steel appliances. An airy sunroom flows to an ivy-covered private sanctuary where you’ll find yourself surrounded by mature trees. The garden level apartment has its own address and currently rents for $1275/month and includes a living room, bedroom, 3/4 bath, and kitchen – great for additional income (either long-term or Airbnb) or as a mother-in-law suite / ADU. Reminiscent of the most romantic European architecture, this restored Italianate is not to be missed! Every facet has been brought back to life; the restoration is the perfect blend of the past with modern function for the most discerning of buyers.
