A couple who just listed their Cherry Hills mansion think their recent renovations nearly doubled its value.

Derrell James and Trudy Fountain-James are asking $4.5 million for their eight-bed, 11-bath home at 4903 S. Elizabeth Circle. They bought the property a year ago for $2.5 million, according to public records.

“The home was originally built back in 1993 … and these guys bought it and had it gutted and started over,” said listing agent Pamela Helm, with Kentwood Real Estate DTC.

In addition to renovating all the bedrooms and bathrooms, the couple updated the kitchen and added new flooring, a wine cellar, basement kitchen and home gym.

Helm said a change of plans means the couple is moving out of state, forcing them to re-list the home. At $4.5 million, the property is the 12th-most-expensive current listing in exclusive Cherry Hills Village.

Address: 4903 South Elizabeth Circle

List price: $4.5 million

Stats: The eight-bed, 11-bath mansion is more than 12,000 square feet.
