Location: Denver, Colorado
Built three years before the Silver Crash of 1893, the historic Waldron Bonfils Mansion was constructed just as the frontier boomtown of Denver, Colorado was coming into its own as a cosmopolitan city, with opulent homes and opera houses joining the saloons and gambling house frequented by silver and gold miners. The three-bedroom home in the Capitol Hill neighborhood was designed by the English architect Frederick Sterner with formal living and dining areas, handsome woodwork, ceiling moldings, oak floors, stained glass windows, and four fireplaces. The home has since been remodeled, and now has a chef's kitchen, a library, and a master bathroom with a private deck. A separate building on the property's grounds comes with five rental apartments, for a total of 11,703 square feet. It just hit the market asking $1,985,000.
