Denver-Close Mansion Is A Standout In Its Affluent Neighborhood

Interior of the house
The reimagined residence in Denver's exclusive Cherry Hills Village is listed for $10.1 million.

Cherry Hills Village is a well-heeled community in the greater Denver area, about 10 miles from downtown yet somewhat of a world away.

Its lush parklike neighborhoods are filled with luxury homes in a variety of architectural styles – some exceeding 10,000 square feet and sitting on lots of more than an acre. Just the setting for large-scale entertaining.

This nearly two-acre estate is set behind gates on a double lot with a tennis court and a swimming pool. The 16,209-square-foot mansion, with a stone exterior and a slate roof, was originally designed in the 1980s by Michael Barber and built by Al Cohen Construction Co. Then in 2015 it underwent a contemporary transformation under the guidance of designer David Hintgen and builder Micky Miller.

The estate is accessed via two driveways and measures about 1.8 acres. (SLIFER SMITH & FRAMPTON REAL ESTATE)

Tall double doors open to the foyer, which has a skylight at the apex of its pyramidal ceiling. Wide gallery halls lead to the four main living spaces – the dining room, the study, the family room and the living room. There are inlaid oak parquet floors.

Eye-catching details abound, both inside and outside the residence. (SLIFER SMITH & FRAMPTON REAL ESTATE)

Eye-catching details are everywhere: The glitzy wet bar sets off the three Lucite-like stools. A marble fireplace framed by windows sits under a vaulted ceiling with heavy wooden beams. Walls of glass open to an indoor spa.
