Remaining in the original family for over 100 years, the stone Mackay home was one of Denver’s earliest landmark homes. This imported, Indiana limestone façade with a carving of Scottish thistle welcomes residents inward to a stunning entry laid with intricate Spanish floor tile handcrafted by Nola circa 1870. A grand, original carved staircase is illuminated by a stained-glass window and an original light fixture. Quarter-sawn oak floors flow from a fashionable parlor with original leaded glass windows, warm woodwork, a fireplace and an original, silver plated chandelier to an open living room with a craftsman-style fireplace, additional leaded windows and original chandeliers. An elegant dining room featuring hand-painted Lincrusta wallpaper and a rare Dufner & Kimberly chandelier circa 1905 connects to a completely renovated, custom wood kitchen. The home chef’s workspace is complete with a gorgeous coffered wood ceiling, luxury appliances, quarter-sawn white oak cabinets and an extremely rare, antique French tile backsplash circa 1915. This home is ready for only its fourth caretaker in its 130-year history.
