Overview

About the property

Denver's highest-rated rental. Immaculate. Wonderful Accommodations and Location

Celebrating 100+ years...This 1914 'Four Square' home is located in the historic Cheesman Park neighborhood, adjacent to the Capitol Hill neighborhood. In 2002, a Denver architect purchased the building and spent $475,000 restoring it to two single-family attached homes. The renovation project garnered a 2006 Restoration for Living Award from Historic Denver. Mission Revival and Spanish Colonial influences, Art Nouveau stained glass, and a turn-of-the-century reproduction fireplace from England are just a few of this home's architectural features.

This superbly renovated and immaculately maintained home is centrally located and close to all that Denver has to offer. Numerous restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and grocery stores (King Soopers, Whole Foods and Safeway) are within walking distance. Four blocks away from historic Cheesman Park, where you can enjoy its walking/jogging/biking paths, flower beds, pavilion, picnic tables, playground, and scenic views. Cheesman Park and the neighborhood around it abound with history that goes back to the founding of Denver City, as Denver was named in 1859.

The home consists of three levels:

MAIN LEVEL — Living room with gas fireplace and Sony 55-inch HDTV w/DirecTV, kitchen, dining room and powder room. The kitchen is fully equipped for a simple meal or gourmet dinner. High-end appliances, outdoor natural gas grill, and dining room directly off the kitchen seats 2-6 people.

UPSTAIRS — Master suite with king-size bed, dresser, Sony 50-inch flat-screen HDTV w/DirecTV, balcony, luxurious bathroom and walk-in closet.

DOWNSTAIRS — Second bedroom with queen-size bed, dresser, Sony 50-inch flat-screen HDTV w/DirecTV, desk with ergonomic chair, full bathroom and washer/dryer.

This home offers several great spots to sit outside and enjoy the afternoon or evening. In addition to the balcony off the master suite, there is a covered porch and walled courtyard. Grab a book, your favorite beverage and enjoy being in one of Denver's best neighborhoods. In the spring and summer, the courtyard is a great place for morning coffee, lunch, or a backyard BBQ. The courtyard includes an outdoor dining table with seating for six people, and a natural gas grill. The front of the house faces west so you can watch the sunset every night from either the front porch or balcony. There is a detached, oversized (562 sq. ft.) two-car garage that can fit full size trucks with room to spare for luggage, skis or additional items.

A great location for upcoming events (see www.denver.org/events for details): National Western Stock Show, Rocky Mountain Horse Expo, Colorado Rockies Home Opener, Denver Auto Show, Kaiser Permanente Colfax Marathon, Denver Arts Festival, Denver Pride Festival, Colorado Shakespeare and Renaissance Festivals.

Historic Comfort in a Great Location... All the modern conveniences of the 21st century and easy access to downtown Denver, 16th Street Mall, Capitol Building, Pepsi Center, Performing Arts Center, Sports Stadiums, Denver Botanic Gardens, and Cherry Creek Shopping District.

In addition to all that the surrounding neighborhoods and Denver have to offer, this home is close to everything you might want to explore in central Colorado.

Beautiful Home, Thoughtful Host, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful trip. From booking to departure, the process was hassle free. The host was so thoughtful. Thinking of his guest, luggage racks to hold our suitcases, but plenty of room in the closest and drawers to make ourselves at home. Make-up remover in the bathrooms, a couple of laundry pods just in case you need to do a load of laundry, coffee for our first day, not to mention a welcome card and chocolates. I travel frequently, and stay at several rentals, and this was by far above and top-notch. House was clean and more than ready for guest. I had no issues with booking, entry and checkout was a breeze. Location was wonderful, walked to a coffee shop down the street as well as the grocery store on the corner. Loved sitting on the porch with a glass of wine and enjoying the quiet neighboorhood. Easy access to downtown and the convention center. Craig was very helpful and was available to answer questions if we needed anything. This is the only place I'll be staying when I travel to Denver again. Just hoping its available :)

Thank you Craig for Everything, we extremely grateful!

Great Location with Brand New Interiors (Newcomers from Atlanta)

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time staying here. Super Location, only 5 min to downtown and Cherry Creek. Walking distance to good restaurants, Botanical Gardens, (tickets comped by owner - thank you so much!) and practically across the street from grocery store. The house has been completely renovated from the studs up. Master has the best shower, closet maid walk in closet, fully equipped kitchen, nice lower level second bedroom suite, comfortable beds and bedding, but our favorite was the beautiful outdoor patio where we grilled and had dinner. Comfortable furniture on brick pavers, nice and roomy under shaded tree; lovely and very private. Definitely recommend this wonderful place!

Completely impressed in the heart of Denver!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We have used vacation rental services in the past, and always have had a good experience, but our week at the 10th & Downing house was far and beyond our best experience yet! This home is FABULOUS! To say it is "completely stocked and that the owner thought of everything" would be an accurate statement, but what needs to be noted is that every detail is of the highest quality! The kitchen lacks nothing -- it's a gourmet cook's dream -- every single item you would need to entertain! The bathrooms are exquisite, from the craftsmanship of the woodwork and tile, to the lush towels from Restoration Hardware, to the BEST rain shower ever! Living here for the week was like an oasis! Denver is a fascinating city, but it's loud...lots of people...and we looked forward to each and every morning and evening spent in this home. We walked to Cheesman every single day...getting in our miles with the locals in a glorious setting! The decor of this home is so warm...authentic, historic accents...all the beauty and character of a home over 100 years old, but with the upgrades of a modern house! We enjoyed coffee and breakfast on the front porch each morning...a great place to people watch! We met so many kind neighbors, walking dogs, very friendly. And the bonus of having a secure garage with remote access...what a blessing in this busy city! The location is so convenient to events downtown...the Zoo (which we loved!)...shopping at Cherry Creek...and easy access to interstates. This home would be perfect for every season! We would rent here again and again! Thank you, Missy, for a most enjoyable week! Each and every detail was much-appreciated for our family of four!

P.S. I forgot to mention the added blessing of having a grocery store just one block away! We "ran out" to the store several times, picking up necessary items in just a 3 minute walk...perfect!

Great stay

Very nice house - clean, tidy, had everything we needed. Nice neighborhood, close to park and botanic gardens. Little noisy at times, but overall we were happy with our choice.
