About the property

Home (2) Bed + Office (1) bed, 1.25 Baths (Sleeps 3-5) Park off street,

Located in the Heart of Denver's Lower Highland Neighborhood, LoHi, the home is just a three blocks from the Highland Bridge, connecting LoHi with Downtown Denver. It is a great central location, just a few blocks to major highways I-25, I-70 and Speer Blvd.

It is an easy walk or bike ride into Downtown Denver to jump on the free 16th street shuttle that will take you through the heart of the city. Downtown features the Colorado Convention Center, Coor’s Field, The Pepsi Center, Elich Gardens 6 flags and the newly redeveloped Union Station. There are new Hotels, Nightlife, Restaurants, Grocery Stores (Whole Foods, King Supers) and the arts all clustered around Downtown.

Denver city bikes are available right outside the back of the property

But there is no need to walk more than a block or two to enjoy some of the finest food in the city. Walkability is a key attribute to this home and in any direction you will find popular restaurants, bars and coffee shops.

This 1896 home was completely taken down to studs and remodeled in 2008. Everything was completely replaced including the house electrical wiring, HVAC, plumbing, windows, etc. From the outside walls in, it is practically a new house.

So you don't have to choose between a great location and a great house. This has both.

The Kitchen, Dining Room and Living Room have an open feeling and feature 10ft. ceilings. The cherry hardwood floors and cabinetry give it a warm rich feeling.

The kitchen features new stainless appliances and a gas stove. This is a great cook's kitchen. But you certainly won't have to cook with such a choice of eateries nearby!

The rear of the house features an office space with a comfortable twin bed and a quarter-bathroom. Open the back door and step out onto a balcony overlooking the back patio and gardens.

The King and Queen bedrooms are on the lower level. The King Bedroom is spacious (200+ sq. ft) with a seating area and large bright walk-in closet. Queen Bedroom has walk out access to the back patio and gardens.

The full bath on the lower level is beautifully tiled featuring a nice deep soaking tub.

After long days of adventure (or work if that's the case) you will probably appreciate the serenity of the outdoor spaces. The front and back patios feature gardens and they each have their own dining set. The back patio is large and is quite private.

Oh, by the way. It has central air conditioning - a real bonus in the summertime.

Parking - 2 private off street spaces. This is especially important on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night when the neighborhood restaurants really bustle.

Sorry, but no pets are allowed.

Nearby Restaurants within 5 block radius: Linger, William & Graham (CNN Best New Bars in U.S.), LoHi Steak Bar, RootDown, Lola, Duo, Postino’s, Amato's Alehouse, Highland Tap, Masterpiece Deli, Vita, Colt & Gray, Old Major, Uncle, Avanti, and The Bindery to just name a few.

Keywords: LoHi, Highlands, Little Man Ice Cream, Clean, Private, Corporate Rental, Zuni, Tejon, Umatilla, 32nd Ave 16th Street, Linger, Duo, Walkability, Bike Path, Bicycle Path, Lodi, Business Trip, Denver Central, Pepsi Center, Coors Field, Elitch Gardens, Colorado Convention Center, B Cycle, Denver Bicycle, Best Restaurant Neighborhood, West 32nd Ave., Victorian-era.

Why Bill Zuercher chose Highland

I wanted to live in a vibrant walkable neighborhood close to Downtown. This area was really coming alive. It is very walkable. It is very drivable.

What makes this house unique

This is an easy one to answer --- Because it feels like home!

When I bought the property I completely remodeled the house with the intention of moving in. So, naturally it would feel like home to me.

The remodel was extensive. The inside was stripped down to the studs. The rooms were reconfigured to adjust to modern proportions and to give it an open feeling. In the process we even re-raised the main level ceilings back up to their original height of 10'6' (in the 1950's they had been lowered down to 8'.)

With all new insulation, drywall, plumbing, wiring, windows, ete. this house feels clean, modern fresh and quiet!

But, no sooner than the remodel complete I accepted a new job out of state. And because I knew I would move back at some point it made sense to make the house available for short-term lease.

I am proud of this house and take a special enjoyment when a guest lets me know how much they enjoy the space.

Hmmm...What else do I like?... Well, Spring planting is always fun for me. I usually break the budget with additional trips to the garden center that I never regret. The gardens have a nice variety so that there is always something in-bloom or bearing fruit from early spring through the fall when the decorative grasses finally reach their height.

I also love to walk around the neighborhood to see what's new. We have several guests who come annually and find themselves doing the same.

Little Piece of Heaven in the LoHi Area

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we expected it to be and more. Located in a walking neighborhood, it is surrounded by great restaurants of every genre. Breakfast to ice cream after dinner, you have it all there, just a short walk from home. The pictures representing the home are very accurate in regards to decor and bedroom/bath location etc. This home was exceptionally clean and very well stocked. All the appliances in the house were new and in beautiful condition. Bath towels, linens, blankets and pillows were all of high quality. Often it can be worrisome while renting a home ,that you could have a problem and not be able to contact anyone for help. Not with this house. The owner is extremely gracious and is available for contact immediately, in fact he encourages you to contact him if there is even the slightest problem or question. Prior to our visit he also sent us excellent information about the area. The parking behind the house is so convenient with easy access to the house, eliminating trying to find parking space in the street, which could be difficult. We would never hesitate to stay here again the next time we are in Denver. In fact we are looking forward to it! This owner is so nice and welcoming that I am wondering if he somehow ordered the one day of snow that really made this Florida girls day complete. This house is a must see.

Another wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second summer in a row that we have rented this Denver Highlands property and would not hesitate to do so in the future. Bill has responded to all our inquiries promptly and it was very nice to meet him in person this past week. The parking spot out back is one huge advantage in this area as parking on the street is usually tight. It is an easy walk across the pedestrian bridge to lower downtown Denver and Union Station. My daughter and her boyfriend flew into DIA and took the light rail to and from downtown with no problems. We had a family gathering of 15 on the back patio on our last night and it worked out beautifully. I recommend a short walk to The Wooden Spoon at 32nd and Zuni for a breakfast pastry. Little Man Ice Cream is also good but be prepared for long lines in the evening. Thanks again Bill for sharing your Highlands home with us.

Great house in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two teenagers just stayed in this house for a week. It was very comfortable for the four of us and has great decor that includes a spacious kitchen if you want to cook and save a little money. If you feel like going out, there are so many great restaurants in walking distance in LoHi or even within walking distance to LoDo. There are also some great local bars for the adults. We will be back!
