Stay with a month agreement or longer in a classic, 1950 vintage ranch style house only four blocks from Stapleton, Denver's newest traditional neighborhood development. This ranch is a welcoming residence for business or pleasure in Denver. Set on an expansive corner lot--15,000 square feet--the house is a sunny and secure retreat for any traveler. Strayer Place--for those straying far from home.
The house has whole-house air conditioning and a 95% AFUE furnace.
Free wifi with capacity to Standard N via Comcast.
Only minutes from Downtown Denver--close to I-25 and Quebec.
All living room and dining room furnishings are new as of July 2005. The residence is done in a retro style decor. Club-car style leather couch and chairs are in the living room. A modern steel glass-topped table easily seats four in the dining room. Vintage art, maps, and mirror line the walls. Work or write at a new sloping front secretary or put up your feet on the ottomans and relax on the comfortable seating or watch cable.
Accommodations: The kitchen is fully furnished with all appliances--microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, mixer, dishwasher and more. Newly re-done to coordinate with other furnishings, the kitchen has a new floor and refinished cabinets. The bath has a new porcelain tile floor and new lavatory. The master bedroom continues the retro look with a 50's dresser, brass night stand and has full length mirror sliding doors on a 12 foot closet. The bed is luxuriance itself--a new restful and comfortable pillow-top queen-sized Denver Mattress. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be made up into a king. The second bedroom also has full-length mirrored closet doors. Guests have access to the laundry in the basement. A stackable washer and gas dryer are available along with a laundry tub and detergent.
Location: The residence is fronted by an expansive lawn with a circular drive that allows parking at the front door. Front and back entrances include security doors. The rear door offers access to a covered patio--really an outdoor room overlooking a large, pleasant backyard. The patio has a ceiling fan, dinette set with chaise lounge, side chairs and end table.
Close to Stapleton, you may walk to hotel row on Quebec--only four short blocks away. Hotels on Quebec include the Doubletree, a Holiday Inn, and a Renaissance among several others. Stapleton includes many local restaurants and an array of chain stores and eateries. As a traditional neighborhood development, Stapleton offers parks, playgrounds, tennis, and hiking and biking trails. The residence is convenient to Denver's RTD bus line with a stop to downtown across the boulevard in front and toward Denver International Airport and east one house away.
At Home in the City: Make this classic home your Denver base for business or your getaway for leisure or even a retreat away from home. Because this house is located on an expansive property of 15,000 square feet, it becomes its own destination. You have little sense that you have neighbors because of the size of the property. In the summer, enjoy the herb garden next to the patio and the back yard or use the gas grill, read, relax, have a quiet time. As of 2011, the house has a new 95% efficient furnace and central air conditioning. As a result, windows can be closed to minimize the sounds of passing cars and any incidental noise.
We rented this house while in transition from selling our house/buying a new one. The landlord was extremely flexible and understanding - he was very patient with us, as our schedule changed a few times. The house is very clean and well-maintained. There is a fantastic patio and backyard for summer/springtime. The house is within walking distance to a nice shopping/eating area, as well as a grocery store and Walgreens. The house is in a quiet, diverse neighborhood - we stayed there for three weeks and did not have any problems. In fact we never saw or heard any of the neighbors. We were able to use the internet (dial up only though) using our own internet account. The house is a couple miles from downtown, but by a major street going into the city.
Overall, this is a great place to stay, especially if you're looking for a more comfortable, house-like setting vs. hotel.
This is a no frills ranch house in the suburbs. It is exactly as pictured. I would disagree with the review that said that this is not a safe neighborhood. It is within walking distance from Stapleton center which features a great super market, wine shop and a few good restaurants.
Awesome house - the a/c was cold, beds were comfy, and fast wifi. We had all the conveniences of home, and the owner was very attentive. We especially appreciated the private back porch and lovely yard, with table and chairs, it was a great place to relax in the evening. And the circle drive was a huge plus, as we were pulling a small cargo trailer. The house is conveniently located near shopping and restaurants. I'm sure we'll be reserving it again on our next trip to Denver.
Norm was a wonderful and accommodating host. The vintage home was very comfortable and well equipped. It was central to Denver and the surrounding area. I forgot my laptop cord in the dining room and it is one that is so unique that I was afraid that I could not replace it and Norm was great to get it sent to me ASAP. I really appreciated his willingness to go above and beyond.
This was a perfect place for us to enjoy Denver, Boulder, and Estes Park. The home was just right for our family-me, my husband and two teens. Comfortable beds, furnishings were just right, access to washer and dryer. Why stay in a hotel when this nice home is here? Norm met the family on day one and showed them around. Thanks, Norm, for letting us use your place
