LIV Sotheby’s International Realty (LIV SIR) has the pleasure of representing some of the most well-known and significant properties in Denver. Here’s a look at three historic homes that have recently hit the market.
2147-2151 Tremont Pl.
As one of Denver’s oldest bed and breakfasts, The Queen Anne Urban Bed & Breakfast, located at 2147-2151 Tremont Pl., is one of the city’s most unique real estate offerings. This historically significant property, listed by LIV SIR brokers Jon Goldberg and Michelle Seward, as well as Pinnacle Real Estate Advisors’, Mike O’Neil, for $4,000,000, is located in the heart of the city near the bustling downtown area as well as the relaxing green spaces of Benedict Fountain Park. The Queen Anne offers limitless possibilities
to transform or enhance this iconic residence to build a legacy of your own. A nationally registered landmark, the original Victorian home (2147 Tremont Pl.) was designed by noted architect Frank Edbrooke for its first 1880s residents, the famed Tabor family. The listing also encompasses the adjacent historic home (2151 Tremont Pl.) for once-in-a-lifetime, side-by-side opportunity. Under the care of its current owner, The Queen Anne has been upgraded to include modern amenities, custom interior design and artwork from local artists, eco-friendly operations, and community-centric practices. This property’s history, the business’s local and international popularity, and the unmatched location make 2147-2151 Tremont Pl. one of the best turnkey investment opportunities currently available on the Denver real estate market.
817 N. Race St.
Situated in the Morgan’s Historic neighborhood on the edge of Denver’s Cheesman Park, 817 N. Race St., listed by LIV SIR brokers, Trish Bragg and Maggie Armstrong, for $3,300,000, is a stunning example of Italian Renaissance Revival architecture. Originally built in 1926, this home blends timeless elegance and an unbeatable location to
provide a one-of-a-kind Denver living experience. Boasting six bedrooms and five bathrooms, this home is as spacious as it is special. Unique design elements such as the curved staircase, leaded glass windows, elaborate moldings, original elevator, and painted soffits serve as reminders of the home’s history. While the house itself is an extraordinary destination, the home’s backyard, which opens to 80 acres of green space and a 1.8-mile walking path in Cheesman Park and a private entrance to the Denver Botanic Gardens, make 817 N. Race St. an unparalleled real estate opportunity.

Listed by LIV SIR broker, Colleen McGrath, for $800,000, this home features modern updates and carefully restored features that those with an appreciation for the past will fall in love with. This two-bedroom, three-bathroom townhome, which was originally built in 1914, was the recipient of the Historic Denver’s Restoration for Living award in 2006. Inside, the house features an open floorplan and an abundance of natural light that many buyers are searching for while also featuring antique decorative elements such as porch parapets, ornate rooflets, stained glass windows, and turn-of-the century reproduction fireplaces from England. With beautifully updated interiors and proximity to some of Denver’s best parks, this home is a rare find this close to the center of the city.
