In Denver’s Whittier neighborhood, every street corner is a crossroads of generations. It is both the cradle of Denver’s history and a canvas for modern living that delightfully juxtaposes 19th century homes against the cinematic backdrop of the glass and steel of the Downtown Denver skyline. 2739 Lafayette Street is an 1886-built archetype of Victorian-era architecture, perfectly poised on one of Whittier’s most picturesque blocks. The home’s ornate façade greets you with an elevated front patio overlooking a fenced-in front yard where lush vegetation thrives. Upon entry, preserved original details whisper tales of the past: an original fireplace presides over the formal living room, while decorative millwork and pocket doors serve as intricate historical footnotes. Anchored by dual staircases, the main level unfolds itself like a novel, each room a chapter in the storied history of the home. Ascend the grand staircase to the upper floor, and you’ll find a primary suite that is so much more than a bedroom. Its vaulted ceilings reveal a sprawling private loft, a 5-piece ensuite bath with designer fixtures, and an adjoining walk-in closet filled with custom storage and conveniently-located laundry. Two additional upstairs bedrooms offer comfort and style, flanking an elegantly revitalized guest bath. The secure and private back yard is a conversation between flagstone and flora, ready for summer soireés and refined relaxation with a secure grassy area for your four-legged friend to frolic freely. Tranquility comes easily in this impressive abode. You can enjoy peace of mind knowing your vehicles and spare belongings are secure in the spacious two car garage, and you’ll rest easy at night knowing the HVAC, water heater, and mechanical systems have been recently modernized. Victorian homes are distinctive, inspirational and rare. The future owner of 2739 Lafayette Street will not just purchase a house; they will steward an artistic legacy crafted in wood and stone.
