Some renovations are tougher than others, but for the truly determined, the results can be spectacular. Such is the case with this 1908 house in Denver’s 7th Avenue Historic District. Per the listing, the owners had a vision to "recreate an authentic and complete restoration of a Denver Four square" with the "simplicity and grace of the Arts and Crafts era."
Working with the Denver Landmark Commission, the architect and builders they enlisted worked for two and a half years, incorporating all the details Craftsman lovers yearn for: tiled fireplaces, period hardware and lighting fixtures, box beam ceilings, leaded glass windows, to name a few. And at 6,444 square feet, there is also a lot of house, including four bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a large open kitchen, multiple living areas, as well as front and back porches.
The drastic transformation, which you can browse in older listing photos, also touched the backyard, which, once parched and unruly, is now a landscaped retreat with an brick outdoor entertaining terrace.
