Price: $1,735,000
The Skinny: Built in 1908 by architects Maurice Biscoe and Henry Hewitt for mining investor Guilford S. Wood, this Mediterranean-inspired Denver manse is now better known as the Bonfils Mansion, after Denver Post owner Helen Bonfils, who purchased the property in 1947. The extravagantly detailed mansion has since passed through several owners who have made some regrettable alterations, but have also preserved some of the house's most memorable spaces, including the intricately carved French doors in the dining and living rooms. The kitchen was recently updated by designer William Ohs, but some of the home's other areas are in need of some attention, like a worn out swimming pool and patio. Listed for $1.74M, the Bonfils Mansion is the centerpiece of a condo development, of which it is now a unit, and benefits from a maintenance staff paid by the condo association.
