Location is everything and this is the best location in Denver: across the street from Cheesman Park and within walking distance of Cherry Creek, Congress Park, City Park and some of the best pubs and restaurants in Denver.
Built in 1908 and just remodeled, our duplex has exposed brick, all of its original woodwork, hardwood floors, and transom windows. It boasts high ceilings and tall windows with lots of natural light. We are modern where it counts: a 37' TV with cable and DVR; free Wi-Fi with a desk area in the living room. The kitchen features granite countertops and stainless appliances; newly remodeled and charming bath with updated systems throughout.
There is a wonderful covered porch with comfortable seating, perfect for an afternoon glass of wine as it gets great southwest sunshine. The back patio area contains a comfortable seating area, dining area with gas grill. It is the perfect spot for morning coffee, as it is flooded with morning sun.
Both bedrooms are outfitted with brand-new pillowtop queen beds; the sofa in the living room is comfortable enough for one to sleep on as well. Plenty of storage space, including a wine rack and pantry.
The Walkscore is 94 and Denver's weather really lets you take advantage of it. The walking/jogging trails at Cheesman are superb and beautiful. We're six blocks from City Park with its Zoo,Natural History Museum, and lake with boat rentals. Liks Ice Cream is just steps away. For the adult in you, we're within four blocks of the Denver Botanical Gardens, steps away from Wyman's Pub, and within walking distance of the myriad coffee shops, restaurants and shopping on 12th Street and in Cherry Creek.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We live in Norman, Oklahoma, where Dennis is an instructor with the FAA and Barbara owns the retail store Antique Garden. We decided to purchase a home in Denver to make it more convenient to visit our son and his family. Over the last few years we have fallen in love with Denver. We appreciate the climate, and we love to bike and hike. We were looking specifically for a home in an area that would be bicycle and pedestrian-friendly. We found that and a lot more as well: we love great places to eat and shop and we're within biking distance of countless great little local shops and restaurants. This area is so walkable that we often don't rent a car at all while we're here. We have met many great locals and across the street at Cheesman Park. We look forward to our visits and can't wait to get back. We hope you will feel the same way.
Why the Owner Chose Denver: Denver is a vibrant and growing city with a young and adventurous population. The weather is (usually) superb with lots of sunshine. It's close to so much: skiing, hiking, snowboarding, biking, etc. But what has been a pleasant surprise is all that Denver has to offer by itself. Whether it's learning to rock climb at the REI flagship store, shopping at great little places like ReVampt and Posh, or eating at superb restaurants: there's always something fun to do. The art museum, the nature museum, the zoo, the public library, Tattered Cover, the Botanic Gardens - all areplaces to visit in Denver. The extensive system of bike lanes is another part of Denver we love.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Our favorite routine is to have our morning coffee on the back patio in the sun. We may walk to nearby Dazbog coffee on 12th for some espresso and for their sunny patio, or Zorba's for a great breakfast. If we're car-less, we may rent from OccasionalCar for some errands around town, or we will simply bike to Cherry Creek North for lunch at Piatti. Afternoon is for wine on the front porch and another bike around Cheesman Park. If our grandchildren are with us, we spend time at the playground at Cheesman as well. For dinner, we enjoy grilling and having dinner on the patio when weather permits. We have a great nightly ritual of Liks Ice Cream - my favorite is Jack Daniels Chocolate Chip and Den's is blackberry yogurt.
