About 2340 Josephine Street

Welcome to The Holland House, one of Denver's historic & most unique masterpieces. A Historic Denver Landmark, located in the architecturally rich, University Park neighborhood, was built in 1933 by architect Eugene Groves who had an unusual attraction to concrete. He was so intrigued with the benefits of using concrete instead of wood that he patented his concrete process & built many commercial concrete structures throughout Colorado, including Johnson's Corner (the well known truck-stop, famous for delicious cinnamon rolls). Groves determined that residential properties should be built using his concrete process because doing so would contribute to "clean living". These were the days when Colorado was reputed to be the place to cure tuberculosis ("TB") because of its clean air. Groves who relocated to Colorado in an effort to recover from his bout with TB met Mary Holland, a high society divorcee who moved to Denver from Detroit to start the Craig Colony for tuberculosis patients. Groves convinced Holland of his concrete contributions to the "clean living" movement & Mary Holland purchased the 15,000 square foot lot & commissioned Groves to build a concrete residence in which she would live. Shirley Kenneally, the 3rd owner of the the property, obtained historic designation in order to preserve Grove's striking work. His incredible flair for design is evidenced in the exterior staircase connecting interior rooms to a roof-top deck highlighting Gove's signature, oval, Dome structure above the tiered ceiling in the living room; his hand-painted, wood inlay ceiling in the sun room; the concrete sleeping alcove with "clean living" windows, pocket doors & a built-in bookcase; & concrete, gently sculptured nooks to house a telephone & salt & pepper shakers. The grounds include a once active coy pond & an arched bridge & labyrinth holding secrets of years gone by. Truly a once-in-a-life time opportunity awaits the fortunate, future owner of this prize property.
