Architecture

The east side of the 4th block of Williams Street Parkway is known as DOLL HOUSE ROW.

Architects in Denver grew tired of rows and rows look alike boring bungalows and felt that even homeowners with modest means should be able to have interesting and unique homes that were more than just functional. Several of the leading architects designed what I like to think of as “miniature” versions of the mansions of Country Club. Drive by and see how wonderfully unique “doll house row” is and how lucky we are to have it in Denver!

I chose one of the small houses on Williams Street as my home in 1980 and people were shocked that I raised my family in such a small “nest”. But I loved it and would never have lived anywhere else.

Small in scale but grand by design this vernacular example of Italian Renaissancehome was built by J.J.B. Benedict. With its paired arched windows and low-hipped roof, it is one of the most elegant small houses in the area. It is interesting to note here that this small home is located very near the famous small homes of Denver.
