One-of-a-kind Victorian in one of Denver's best neighborhoods. This house is located in the Historic Driving Park neighborhood. The name comes for a gentleman's driving association that hosted harness horse racing in the 1880's. This location is unbeatable: north of the Country Club neighborhood and south of the Seventh Avenue Historic District. If that is not enough, one can take a leisurely 1.5 mile walk through Country Club to arrive in Cherry Creek, one of Denver’s premier destinations for shopping and home to many unique eateries. This house was completely renovated a few years ago: floors, paint, new kitchen, backyard landscaping, partially finished basement, new plumbing, updated electrical, new evaporative cooler (2019), new furnace (2019), newer hot water heater (2017), and the list goes on. While it has been extensively updated, great care was taken to preserve the original architectural detail of this historical home. For example, note that this house has a sleeping porch on the northwest corner of the first floor. On particularly hot days, one would sleep on this porch to benefit from the cool breezes coming in from the north. This is a rare opportunity to live in a low-maintenance home in central Denver where all of the historical aspects that make it unique have been preserved. Even the two car garage (which was formerly a carriage house with a hay loft) will surprise and delight with an additional 5 ft bump-out for additional storage. BTVA Showings start on Sunday. Please note the limited showing schedule: 3/15: 1:30 pm -6:15 pm; 3/16-20: 4:30 pm- 6:15 pm; 3/21: 10 am - 1:45 pm They just don't build houses like this anymore. Agent Owner. BTVA.
