This three bedroom, three bathroom San Raphael home, built in 1901, is a throwback to some of Denver’s earliest dwellings and boasts modern sophistication while maintaining its historic wonder. The charming brick exterior and front porch with its swing is ideal for people-watching and relaxing through the sunny, temperate Colorado seasons, and sets a friendly and sturdy tone. The living room is bathed in light and anchored by an ornate, classic fireplace with a dark oak trim, a rich detail found on each window throughout the home. The updated kitchen features stainless steel appliances, dark oak cabinets, granite countertops and a distinct red, black, and white tile design. A two-seat kitchen bar sits next to the adjacent family room. The off-kitchen bathroom has its own eclectic aesthetic bolded by the cabinets and sink. The large family room has six windows streaming in light with great backyard views. The dining room is spacious with ample room for guest and gatherings. The primary bed is endowed with vaulted ceilings, spacious and relaxed. Both 2nd and 3rd beds have access to the wood deck, a fine space for relaxing and enjoying company or having quiet, contemplative mornings. The finished basement amenities include a nook, perfect for a home office, a laundry space, and a beautifully redone bathroom with coffee-colored vertical grid tile in a glass-enclosed walk-in shower with two shower heads for maximum opulence. Bold colors throughout and an inspired sink complete the space. The superb backyard is a masterclass in urban backyards, both secluded yet open. It feels like an invitation for barbecues and days full of laughter and play. A hot tub next to the detached garage is a particularly nice touch. Walkability competes with the best, in either direction you’ll find one of Denver’s amazing roster of cultural offerings. Walk East in the morning for the Denver Zoo and West in the evening to Coors Field, equidistant from your home. It’s a city walker’s paradise.
