Strolling the quaint tree-lined street in the neighborhood of Jefferson Park, just minutes from downtown Denver, one would never know that behind the stunning and historic, Spanish Revival-style façade of the Granada Theater lies one of Denver’s most extraordinary homes. Once Colorado’s first silent motion picture theater, originally built in 1926, the building was completely renovated and reimagined at a cost of $3.4 million dollars creating a showcase residence.
Although the theater still bears the classic marque, inside the home offers finishes of the highest degree. The level of detail is visible to the human eye including commercial grade windows, doors, and complete mechanical and fire-safe systems. The finishing touches could not have been elevated any further beyond what was installed from the custom cabinetry, natural stone hard surfaces, walnut floors, and the abundance of Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances. Offering over 6,000 square feet of interior living space, the design brings the outdoors in with large-scale pocket doors that disappear into the walls, allowing for the sounds of the outdoor fountain to resonate throughout the interior of the home.
Entertaining is made easy with almost a second kitchen situated near the seamless indoor/outdoor space. The outdoor living space uniquely provides several different areas of entertainment on different levels, including, which once was the projection room, an observation deck affording breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains and the downtown Denver skyline.
The rich history of The Granada Theater is still felt throughout the residence. What was once used as the orchestra pit has now been repurposed into an underground, 8-car heated garage and separate shop. A hidden walk-in vault, an unheard-of bonus feature, also doubles as a saferoom for enhanced security. Additionally, the building has 2 commercially zoned retail spaces that can be converted into offices or other uses for one’s business.
