In the late 1800’s the wealthy of Denver flocked to “Millionaires Row” (now Grant Street) on “Quality Hill,” and along East Colfax Avenue where they outdid each other, constructing luxurious mansions. Architecture that incorporated a variety of classical styles was noted for its flamboyance became known as the “Denver Style.” Each owner whimsically added turrets, spires and porches and the finished home rarely bore any resemblance to the original design.
Two examples include the Grant-Humphreys Mansion and the Colorado Governor’s mansion. Both were built between 1902 and 1908 and are on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
Now the area is one of the most dynamic in Denver, filled with interesting restaurants, galleries, parks and bike paths. Nestled perfectly near (but not on top of) public transportation options and roadways, The Denver House is close to everything you need to fulfill a comfortable lifestyle.
