From the original 1950’s real estate brochure: “This beautiful French Normandy home was designed by Fisher & Fisher, Architects, and build by Dunn & Gibson in 1930. It is situated on 24 beautifully landscaped lots overlooking the golf course of the Denver Country Club. The house is built on the side of a hill and the grounds are terraced. And…showing the entrance hall with travertine floor and hand painted ceiling done by John E. Thompson. The living room is through the last door on the left and the library entrance directly across to the right. The octagonal loggia is seen at the end of the hall. The Otis elevator which runs from the basement to the third floor is the first door on the left…”

Please join us for a rare construction tour made possible through the generosity of the new owners of the house. The tour will be led by Denver architect Don Ruggles, who is heading up the renovation team. In addition to the tour, Don will deliver an illustrated architectural talk entitled the “Nine Square Plan”.

Location: The house address is 1681 E. Cedar Avenue, Denver, Colorado 80209, located on the south side of the Denver Country Club golf course at South Gilpin Street. Complimentary coffee will be served in a designated area in the house. The lecture will begin at 9:00am, followed by the tour. Note: the house is currently an active construction zone. Be prepared for a cold house, wear sturdy shoes, and please do not cross into areas that have been cordoned off.
