Rarely in my twenty-five years of selling luxury real estate have I seen a home as beautifully restored and renovated as 137 High Street in Denver.

No expense was spared nor detail overlooked in the quest to bring this glorious Classic Revival style home back to life after years of neglect. The 16,600 square foot grounds feature five distinct entertaining and recreation environments including a glistening pool retreat, a contemplative oasis with mesmerizing “sky mirror” fountain and a phenomenal wraparound terrace for al fresco entertaining. Outdoor lighting, restored flagstone terraces and an exterior sound system encourage your guests to linger.

Doug Walter Architects and armies of artisans refined and redefined every facet of this home’s hidden potential. An outdated servants’ kitchen gave way to an enormous chef’s delight, complete with top of the line appliances, custom cabinetry, expansive granite countertops. Informal gathering spaces open to the kitchen, as well as a large, beautifully appointed breakfast room. The formal, paneled dining room affords entertaining on a grand scale as does the beautifully proportioned living room with restored dentil molding and wainscoting and carved mantle.

On the second level, four bedrooms, complemented by two full baths and a secondary laundry, service family needs. The new master retreat, resting over a gigantic four-car garage, offers custom cherry walk-in closet, seating area next to the remote-controlled fireplace and a spa-inspired bath with spa tub and multi-headed shower. The addition received the award for the “Best Sympathetic Addition” for 2008 from Historic Denver, Inc.  

A tree-top third level offers a sixth bedroom, artist’s studio, workout room or use your imagination. The remodeled lower level offers the second laundry, fit for a queen, a temperature-controlled wine cellar complete with hand-carved antique doors, a billiard room, bedroom and bath.

All new electrical and lighting components, new plumbing, steel piers, full-scale heating and cooling upgrades, comprehensive security and media systems, hand-wrought iron work, Mediterranean stucco, restored windows and more brought this gem to life. From the moment you pass thorough the entry gate, you feel the warmth and comfort of the “high” life to come.
