William Lang Masterpiece in Berkeley Creates Amazing Opportunity to Own a Piece of Denver’s Storied History DENVER – It’s a one-of-a-kind Victorian mansion designed by one of Denver’s most famous architects in the historic Berkeley neighborhood, and it’s now available for a discriminating buyer seeking to own a piece of Denver’s storied history. Lisa Santos, a leading broker associate and co-owner with RE/MAX of Cherry Creek, has listed this beautifully renovated residence at 4907 Stuart for $929,000. Designed by William Lang and his partner Marshall Pugh, the gorgeous Victorian was built in 1890 for Henry Wimbush, the original developer of the Berkeley neighborhood who donated the land for what is now Regis University. Lang, one of Denver’s most noted architects, also designed the historic Molly Brown House. “This home is truly amazing and has undergone a complete restoration with craftsmanship and elegance second to none,” said Santos. “With great respect for the home’s history, combined with an eye to the future, the owners undertook a three-year renovation that includes structural reinforced engineering, new plumbing and electrical, plus striking quarter-sawn oak floors, crown molding and baseboards. It’s exquisite throughout, and the park-like setting provides remarkable views of the Willis Case Golf Course and the majestic Rocky Mountains.” The gourmet kitchen is a true highlight of the home with custom oak cabinets, slab granite countertops, and stainless steel appliances, including a six-burner stove and double ovens. The owners will also enjoy French door access to the expansive grounds, including a flagstone patio. The master suite showcases a deck, a sitting room with cozy fireplace, and a luxurious five-piece master bath. The third story of the home, which is distinguished by a distinctive turret-style architecture and wrap-around front porch, features a self-contained apartment with kitchen and bath. There’s an amazing turret room and a grand curved staircase with gorgeous curved wall of windows that floods the area with abundant natural light. When entering the home, visitors are welcomed by the original oak paneled walls and built-in bench in the foyer. The living room has beautiful period features, including an elaborate fireplace and curved wall. The conservatory is sunny and warm due to dozens of tiny windows comprising nearly an entire wall. The dining room is a study in elegance, with oak bead board walls, a crystal chandelier, window seat and stained glass. The family room, which includes wiring for surround sound, has an attached half-bath and is open to the kitchen, creating the perfect space for entertaining. This Victorian Mansion offers four bedrooms, 3-1/2 baths, and 4,479 finished square feet. The spacious lot features 21,700 square feet with beautiful landscaping, mature trees, an outdoor dining area, and a 20-zone sprinkler and drip irrigation system. Berkeley is one of Denver’s most desirable, enduring neighborhoods featuring remarkable 19th century homes and a premier location near excellent shopping, coffee shops, yoga centers, art galleries, and quiet taverns.
