Albion to Holly, Alameda to 8th Avenue
150 South Bellaire Street
Built in 1937 by Raymond H Ervin, this large residence was modeled after the monastery that Columbia Pictures built for “Lost Horizon” in the same year. The horizontal Moderne style is complimented by the verticality of the Art Deco panel on the south side. Other Deco elements include the Chevron design and stylized flower panels.
200 Cherry Street
J.J.B. Benedict called this home on Cramner Park his best design of all. And it is easy to see why with the unusual curved broken pediment, a low-hipped roof, an elegant arched entry…all of which are indicative of the style.
A fine example of the Tudor Style
100 Block of Bellaire
A grander version of the Tudor cottage, this block of two story cottages was constructed in 1937 by GN Smedegaard on the west side of Cranmer Park.
|FOUR MILE HOUSE
5000 East Exposition Avenue
Denver’s oldest extant building. This rough-hewn ponderosa pine log cabin (1859), refined over the years with clapboarding, a frame wing, and Victorian brick addition, was built as a stage stop along Cherry Creek and Smoky Hill Trail. It rests on giant cottonwood logs. Restored as a living-history museum and farm on a seven-acre site, owned and operated by City and County of Denver.
