Designed by Fisher & Fisher, who also designed the Phipps Mansion, 2301 E. Alameda Ave. was built in 1932 as a wedding gift for former Gov. John Evans’ eldest daughter.
Since then, the 8,000-square-foot mansion has been extensively renovated but retains many original details.
Listed at $6.8 million, the mansion sits inside a private enclave with a security gate on 1.3 acres overlooking the Denver Country Club and with views of the downtown skyline.
Owned by retired attorney Gary Pierson and his wife Myrla, the home was listed in late January by Christopher Bouc and Ian Wolfe with LIV Sotheby’s International Realty.
Bouc calls the home a gem that’s “truly unparalleled to anything in Denver.”
The home’s been “impeccably maintained for nearly 100 years,” and the owners completed upgrades like redoing every bathroom and converting an upstairs bedroom into a walk-in closet.
“They appreciated the history and kept the charm while making improvements to bring the home up to today’s standards,” Bouc says.
The mansion includes four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a four-car garage, and a 360-bottle wine cellar. The remodeling retained the home’s classic details, including decorative plaster ceilings and a limestone fireplace in the paneled library. An elevator provides easy access to the home’s three floors. The exterior includes rolling lawns with English gardens and flagstone patios.
