|The very name suggests…eclecticism!!!
Many of the houses built in Denver prior to the 1893 Silver Crash are this very popular and romantic style, which is essentially one of contrasts.
Characterized by asymmetry and contrasting materials, the first floor construction was frequently stone or brick. Upper floors were wood and often featured decorative shingles. Balconies, turrets, and wraparound porches complete the picture, while art glass, tall brick chimneys, and textured surfaces added detail interest.
The Curtis Park neighborhood contains many fabulous examples of this interesting and beautiful architectural style.
