$1,250,000 3637 E 26th Avenue Parkway, Denver, CO 80205
Location, distinction, and opportunity all converge in this French Normandy style estate that was built in 1931 and is being listed for sale for the first time in more than 60 years! The home was originally built for the family of Charles Shinn, President of the Denver Dry Goods Company (which was at one point the largest department store west of Chicago). If the character of the home itself and its incredible history weren't reason enough to fall in love, the residence sits on one of the most prime oversized lots in Denver, directly across the street from the City Park Golf Course with views of the mountains and downtown Denver, and represents the perfect opportunity to paint your masterpiece. 5,563 square feet of interior space offer ample room for indoor comfort and convenience, while multiple patios and a large yard are perfect for outdoor enjoyment, entertaining, and gardening (the prior owner always shared home-grown vegetables with the neighborhood). The stunning southwest-facing living room has French doors to a large south-facing covered patio with fantastic views and is adjoined by a private study--the perfect work-from-home space. The dining room and casual breakfast area (and its connected covered patio) are great spaces to enjoy morning coffee, meals, and sunsets over the mountains. The large sun room overlooking the back yard is a perfect transitional space from the inside to the outside. 4 of the bedrooms are upstairs, making the living space very functional, and the large basement offers a mix of finished/unfinished space with incredible potential. The attached garage is perfect for cold/wet days, and 3 additional exterior off-street parking spaces ensure that there is plenty of room for vehicles. The location is phenomenal with easy access to downtown Denver, City Park, the Museum of Nature & Science, the Denver Zoo, restaurants, shops, and much more. The property is strictly sold as-is. Showings begin February 15th. Buyer to verify all information.
