Woven into the fabric of Denver’s beloved Wash Park, this copper-clad home is rich with architectural significance. The artistic residence was awarded the coveted Architect’s Choice Award for its visionary design, offering unprecedented versatility in one of Denver’s most appealing neighborhoods.
Veiled behind a tree-lined route located on Wash Park’s historic South Race Street, this architecturally detailed abode—with walls of glass, alluring copper accents and industrial elements—is like no other residence in the vicinity. And its outdoor living space is simply divine, seemingly tailor-made for outdoor Colorado living.
A unique feature is the home’s curved entry portal, accented with a hand-crafted metal staircase winding upward three stories from the lower level to the second floor. The main living area of the residence features a soaring two-story board-form concrete fireplace, tongue and groove Douglas fir ceilings, and exposed post-and-beam construction.
Added design features include polished concrete windowsills, custom built-in cabinetry, electronic window coverings, a Lutron Lighting System, built-in speakers and folding walls of glass connecting homeowners to the outdoors.
Integrated into the main living area, the kitchen features top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, custom Martin Shea Millwork soft-close cabinetry, polished concrete countertops, and sliding glass panels that separate the dining room.
Ascending to the second floor, a therapeutic master suite features a spa-inspired bathroom with a luxurious walk-in steam shower and tranquil soaking tub.
For social gatherings, a stylish lower level provides an urban refuge.
Polished concrete flooring with exposed aggregate is warmed with in-floor radiant heat, and a working bar (complete with a 1,000-bottle wine cellar) anchors the living area. Adjacent to the living room is a cozy theatre.
And the coup de grâce: A full outdoor space seems almost tailor-made for Colorado living, providing year-round entertainment with an outdoor fireplace, custom-made metal pergola with climbing vines, radiant-heat exterior pathways, and a spacious, heated three-car garage.
