About the property

Beautifully modernized 1-bed apartment just 4 blocks from Downtown

This rare Italianate-style 1884 built home was stripped to the walls for a total interior re-design and modernization.

The structure boasts 3-sided turret window bays, intricate brick work, high ceilings and a beautiful redwood deck with magnificent views of downtown.

Located near the 5-Points/Curtis Park historic district, it sits just 4 blocks from the Central Business District and just over 2 blocks from the light rail station. Just a 15 minute walk to the 16th street mall makes all of lower downtown easily accessible.

A perfect stay for anyone attending events at the Denver Convention Center - ride the light rail right to the front door!

Prominent antique features highlight the interior design, such as stained glass windows and unique decorative stair guard of a historic Larimer Square railroad building. Marble tile salvaged from the Brown Palace Hotel adorns the bathroom floor and walls.

A thoughtful marriage of modern design with vintage accents, the renovation involved painstaking restoration of original vintage trim work to complement contemporary features.

Comforts include Dish satellite 120-Plus, large flat screen TV, High-speed wireless Internet, stereo speakers in each room, steam shower and central air conditioning.

A fully stocked European-style kitchen with high-end appliances makes cooking your meals a pleasure.

The atmosphere of this apartment is enchanting. Located on a quiet, seldom trafficked street provides for a comfortable neighborhood feel. Morning light pours through bay windows lighting the living room and kitchen areas. Evening sunsets light up downtown skyscrapers viewed from the outdoor deck.

About Gary Noto

I am a second-generation Italian-American Denver native raised in Denver's North Berkley neighborhood.

I have a background in civil engineering and worked by profession as a Geographic Information Specialist in Asia for 15 years. After returning to the US I embarked on a 3-year, painstaking renovation of the Tremont Place House.

From my time overseas I gained an appreciation for Asian style and art, which is reflected in my home renovation design and decor.

Gary Noto purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Gary Noto chose Five Points

I felt compelled to preserve this 130-year old house of rare architectural style to save a part of Denver's early history.

I treasure Denver's old neighborhoods and beautiful home architecture, which was a driving force in the passionate restoration this house.

I have a connection to the neighborhood from my childhood, from the time I would play in the back-yard of my Aunt's Curtis Park home just blocks away.

What makes this apartment unique

Great stay in Denver

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this apartment! Location was great for our plans. Love that much of the original Victorian charm has been preserved with modern comforts. Lovely stained glass and iron work. The washer/dryer was very convenient. Great communication with the owner. Gary was prompt and helpful. Will definitely check availability for out next visit.

Great place to stay near downtown Denver

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, comfortable flat about a 15-20 minute walk from downtown Denver. The unit is small but has been remodeled and space has been optimized so it feels open. Nicely furnished throughout and the deck is great, big and with a view of downtown. Parking is on the street but easy to find a space and a pass is provided. Owner responded quickly to any questions. When I return to Denver I will certainly try to stay here again.

The apartment was great! Much better than a hotel and a convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

Our first time staying in a private property was a great experience. Loved the decor and the amenities. The place is warm and cozy- just right for my wife and I. We enjoyed the whole house audio, steam shower, and the rear deck. Gary was great and responded immediately when we failed to read the detailed manual and didn't know how to control the audio system. We would certainly consider staying again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely place!

Nice place, good location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment. The repurposed trim, tile, etc. works really well. It feels spacious and the light is great. The deck is private and quite welcoming and comfortable. A home away from home.

Gary is also quite welcoming and accessible, if needed. Transitional neighborhood within walking distance to most everything (Union Station, Coors Field, 16th Street). Walton is 2 blocks away with light rail, retail and live music venues. The Rolling Pin bakery gets two thumbs up. Safeway is close by too in the other direction. The apartment, though, is in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Parking on street was not a problem.

This place worked really well for the 2 of us on a short, cover a lot of ground, vacay in Denver.

We'll be back.
