Observatory Park


Warmth and urbane living emerge from within the walls of this stunning modern farmhouse presented by award-winning Dwell Development and Godden Sudik Architects. Opulent metal-cladding, soaring gables with esteemed windows and a pristine glass-front entry enrich the beautifully-designed exterior; while inside, neutral finishes are idyllically layered with soft, natural light and traditional touches. Astonishing architectural beauty flows throughout producing a color palette steeped in warm minimalism with wide-plank hardwoods, vaulted ceilings and exposed wood beams. Within the spaciously connected common areas, luxury and simplicity share the spotlight as a natural stone fireplace reaches from floor to ceiling and 16’ European style sliding-glass doors create a seamless outdoor transition to dual patios and built-in BBQ. Basking in warmth and comfort, a chef’s kitchen is fully-equipped with premium, stainless-steel and paneled appliances, custom cabinetry and a generous center island with waterfall edge. On the second-floor, three distinctly charming bedroom suites and secondary laundry give way to a breathtaking primary master suite laced with tranquility and rejuvenation; the ensuite elegantly details a pair of walk-in closets, dual-vanities, glass-enclosed shower and private water closet. Lavish hallmarks of the basement include a sleek home gym, and wine wall constructed of black-metal, framed glass and open shelves; plus, a generously sized rec/media room and bedroom suite with walk-in closet. Attached 3 Car Garage, 9,900 sq ft lot; the impressive design checks every box! Located within the distinguished Observatory and University Park Neighborhood teeming with chic eateries, quaint coffee shops and quintessential parks. Close proximity to Cherry Creek’s bustling retail and restaurants plus easy access to I-25 for travel throughout the city. Estimated completion Dec 2022.

Observatory Park

Observatory Park enjoys not only easy access to I-25, nearby movie theaters, organic markets and cafes but also the architectural and cultural influence of their location near the University of Denver campus. The history of this neighborhood is linked with John Evans, who was named Colorado’s 2nd territorial governor by Abraham Lincoln in 1862. Evans developed Northwestern University in Illinois in the 1870’s, which served as his model for what became the University of Denver (DU) in the late 1800’s. The mansion homes and wide, tree-lined streets that were constructed in these neighborhoods at that time took their cue from the “conscience and culture” atmosphere associated with DU. While other architectural styles have joined the mix, the neighborhood retains this storybook, upscale feel. Observatory Park, named for the historic Chamberlin Observatory on East Warren Avenue, offers a green haven for strollers, picnickers, rugby players and more.
