Colorado’s bout with coronavirus has done nothing to lessen the appeal of Denver’s historic Potter Highlands, just northwest of LoHi’s restaurant row along W. 32nd Avenue. Highlands expert Amy Berglund has a vintage Victorian there to show you that’s a two-block walk from Park Burger and Patzcuaro’s Mexican Restaurant, that shows lots of period detailing including a colorful shingled gable, covered porch, stained glass, exposed brick, and pocket doors; along with a recent makeover that left its entertaining spaces wide open, just as buyers all want now.
Berglund, with Re/Max Professionals, calls 2645 W. 34th Avenue a nice blending of old and new, still showing the original 1905 fireplace and surround, but with a gas insert now. The current owners did all of the heavy lifting a decade ago—left the formal areas upfront in their pristine state, while opening up the back to its full width, and extending rearward to create a big kitchen with wide peninsula and an ensuite master overhead. The finished area tops out over 3,000 sq. ft., three bedrooms, 3-1/2 baths.
You’ll see a finished basement, a third-floor loft space for a big office or playroom, and out back, a fire pit, pergola, and a new 2-car garage. The HVAC and other systems, the main-level wood-strip floors, and roof, are all newer.
The price is $965,000. Meanwhile, Berglund has had two nearby sales in Potter Highlands that despite the virus drew multiple offers and closed over list. “Everything is selling quickly.”
