    Description

    If walls could talk, this three-story Queen Anne Victorian would have stories to tell! Known as the "Ferril House", this home, quite possibly more than any other in Colorado, has a rich literary history. Lived in by acclaimed 20th Century poet, Thomas Hornsby Ferril, the home hosted some of the most treasured writers in America's literary cannon as they passed through town -Walt Whitman, Carl Sandberg, Thomas Wolfe and others. The abundance of ornate woodwork and tile in the home no doubt contributed to the creativity that came out of the space and continued to come out years later when the home housed Denver's acclaimed Lighthouse Writer's Workshop. The main floor has a formal dining room, a stately salon, a bedroom and updated kitchen with a vintage stove and tons of light. On the second floor, the spacious and casual living room abuts the enclosing "sleeping porch" as well as a mini-kitchen and Ferril's office. A spacious and open third floor, with arched ceilings could double as an art studio if one were so inclined. Don't miss the "train" that can be found behind the furnace in the third floor utility/storage space that Ferril and his famous friends would ride during the many parties held at the home. The location, blocks from 17th Ave.'s "restaurant row", steps from the famous Beet Box bakery and close to all that RiNo and downtown have to offer, cannot be beat. *Home has an easement with Historic Denver to ensure that renovations from future homeowners are consistent with the original design of the home. Current homeowners found Historic Denver easy to work with when they renovated the kitchen.
