Timeless elegance abounds at this historic Denver mansion

LIV Sotheby’s International Realty 1 of 4 The stunning, historic mansion at 727 Washington Street is listed by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty broker, Douglas D. Kerbs, for $4,600,000. Heritage meets style at 727 Washington Street, one of Denver’s last true historic mansions. Erected in 1911, this iconic estate is being offered for the first time since the complete restoration/renovation of the entire home and grounds. This landmark home is now listed by LIV Sotheby’s International Realty broker, Douglas D. Kerbs, for $4,600,000.

As a distinctive Denver home for more than a century, the renovations to the home were aimed at maintaining the integrity of the architecture from the time period while incorporating modern amenities and enhancements. Combined, the rich history, central location to downtown Denver, and elegant design create a city living experience like none other.

The craftsmanship and attention to detail of the meticulous restoration can be immediately visualized as one enters through the glass and iron front door and into the barrel-vaulted entry hall. Here, guests are greeted by some of the most intricate plaster work one has ever seen in Denver or elsewhere. The artistry can be further appreciated in the baseboards, crown molding, and beautifully maintained wood floors that escort one throughout the home.

Each room in the home is perfectly appointed with handsome finishes and ample space for entertaining with ease. The formal dining area, with its built-in china cabinets and two twinkling chandeliers, not to mention the zinc prep area in the butler’s pantry which also houses the original warming drawer powered by a hot water radiator, is a prime example of this home’s ability to host. Downstairs, the basement features a billiards room with a stately fireplace and a generous seating area in which to lounge or enjoy good conversation.

From the drawing room, the veranda can be accessed through three sets of French doors. This outdoor living area, which overlooks the grounds, is ideal for enjoying meals outdoors or simply soaking in the fresh air. Relax by the pool, a unique find for a home in the heart of the city, when the sun is shining. And when the temperatures drop, the snow-melt system will eliminate the need to shovel snow on all sidewalks on the property, the entire driveway, and the patio surrounding the pool.

For more secluded relaxation, the master bedroom suite is a private retreat to retire to at the end of the day. Featuring a health room, a master closet, which is a replicate of the Yves Saint Laurent boutique in New York City, and a master bathroom complete with a steam shower – this is truly luxury living.

The second floor of the historic estate boasts three additional bedrooms, each with their own en suite bathrooms and two closets, a clever addition since homes from this era typically only offered one standard closet. Ascending to the third floor, one will find cozy guest quarters with two bedrooms a bathroom, a living space as well as a home office.
