2247 Forest


Stately Denver Square with one of the best wrap-around covered porches in Park Hill. Regarded as the "Grandfather of Forest Street," this 1905 home has been extensively and lovingly updated by its 20-plus year owners. A retaining wall encloses the front of the property with broad stone steps that usher you past a lovely garden and water fountain. The foyer features beautiful portals and columns. On your right, the former dining room has been transformed into a casual entertainment and eating area, with granite countertops, ample space for stools, and detailed built-ins that connect to the updated kitchen. The opposite side of the foyer reveals a gorgeous formal living room with a vintage-style mantle above a gas fireplace at the front and a spacious dining room toward the rear. French doors open onto a Juliet balcony off the dining room. A one-of-a-kind Greek chandelier floats above the living area, while a drum chandelier with mica lens warmly bathes the dining area. The kitchen has updated appliances and cabinets, granite counters, and textured wallpaper and wood. A half bath is tucked to one side of steps that lead to the basement and rear yard. The main staircase ascends to a roomy landing with an original built-in bench and leaded-glass windows overlooking the yard. The owner's suite is amazing, featuring a luxury en-suite bath with heated floor, and walk-in closet. An English-style oak paneled canopy is above a built-in queen bed frame, with matching built-in window seat and a cabinet to house audio equipment, etc. A full hall bath has also been updated with classic fixtures, tub, and hexagon tile. Two additional 2nd floor bedrooms have easily handle Queen beds. The finished basement has a media room with built-in cabinetry, space for a king bed w/egress, and a bath for a guest suite + laundry & storage. The backyard has a shady custom pergola with stone pilasters from the same quarry as the original foundation stone, lush landscaping, and a 2-car garage.
