PRICE IMPROVEMENT! Here's your opportunity to purchase a home on a double lot in Denver's Whittier neighborhood. Handcrafted details adorn every surface of this red brick bungalow. Original stained glass lighting, hardwood floors, beautiful tiled copper fireplace with oak mantel and intricate crown moldings transport you back to a time of superior craftsmanship. The spacious main level has 1100 square feet, featuring a giant primary bedroom and ensuite bath with farmhouse sink and clawfoot tub. This large bedroom can easily be converted back to two bedrooms to make this a three bedroom home on the main floor. A classic living room with high ceilings and lots of natural light opens into a dining room with large southern facing windows. The kitchen has a great layout overlooking the huge backyard. Another large bedroom off the kitchen offers a flexible space with the same historic accents and high ceilings. Downstairs 1100 sq ft of unfinished basement offers so much flexibility and potential. This home could easily have 5 bedrooms or a completely separate 2 bedroom apartment. ADU zoning means you can possibly finish the basement with its own address and create a separate income stream with AirBnB, VRBO, or Evolve. An exterior entrance to the basement is a house hacker's dream come true and could be paired with a separate side yard to create privacy and higher ROI. If this wasn't enough, the 50 foot wide double lot has alley access and room for a 4-car garage with an accessory dwelling unit / carriage house on top. This yard with existing sprinkler system has plenty of room for Colorado living and is just waiting for your artistic vision. Whittier is old-school Denver at its finest with tree-lined streets, beautiful victorian homes, parks, libraries and close proximity to some of the city's hippest neighborhoods. Walk to the Zoo, History Museum, City Park/golf course, Uptown, Cole, Curtis Park, LoDo, RiNo and the nearby light rail station. Opportunity Knocks!
