About Adam and Cristina Wells

We are husband and wife duo living in the Platt Park area here in Denver, Colorado. After 3 long years of remodeling (the ugliest house on the block) we have created (in our opinion) the perfect city bungalow. Lots of sweat, drilled fingers and tears (yes tears...of joy when it was all done!) It all went into our updated 800 sq. ft. bungalow located in the heart of South Pearl St area, where we enjoy a 3 minute walk to restaurants, shops, farmers markets and seasonal Festivals. We love jogging to Washington Park, and regularly walk from the house to the light rail train Downtown, Union Station and (just recently) Denver International Airport, saving ourselves from parking headaches.

Adam and Cristina Wells purchased this bungalow in 2012

Why Adam and Cristina Wells chose Platt Park

We love our quiet and friendly neighborhood, as well as the sense of community shared by this area. Being walking distance from South Pearl Street- Washington Park, Sushi Den, farmers markets and Festivals is pretty incredible.

What makes this bungalow unique

*Centrally located **Light-Rail train ride to DIA*

Bungalow oasis

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Denver. This bungalow has been lovingly renovated, and has everything you need for a perfect stay. On street parking was always available. It is also within walking distance of amazing South Pearl restaurants and shops and Platt and Washington Parks. I look forward to staying at this location again the next time I visit Denver.

Cute and cozy - Highly Recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! A perfect small city home in a quiet neighborhood. The home is walking distance to great restaurants and bars in Platt Park and very close to light rail allowing easy access to many parts of the Denver metro area. The home was very clean, quiet and perfect for 2-3 people. Although we were here in the winter, the outdoor patio would be fabulous for hosting and grilling in warmer months. The owners were very friendly and made our stay seamless and easy. Hope you enjoy as much as we did!
