Step away from the chaos and into this light, bright Capitol Hill home, nestled in a blissful landscape rich in Denver history.

Background: Architect and auto mogul, Ralph Schomp — of the Schomp Automotive Group — and his family, meticulously reimagined the layout of this property, paying tribute to its 19th-century heritage.

  • The home's style has seen many iterations over the years, including Italian revival, Spanish colonial and more. It seamlessly blends classic and modern architecture.
680 Clarkson St. — $2,895,000

Why we love it: The mansion mimics the soiree-inducing atmosphere of the late 1800s. It also boasts a traditional library with a suede ceiling and cigar room-turned-bar hearken back to old-school fashion.

  • Neighborhood: Capitol Hill
  • Realtor: Rachel Gallegos — milehimodern
  • Specs: 5 beds, 6 baths, 6,026 SqFt

Notable features: Grand staircase, vast sunroom with courtyard views, expansive great room and private, above-garage patio.

  • Primary suite grounded by fireplace and crowned by chandelier. Dual walk-in closets and two fully separate bathrooms — one with a soaking tub.
  • Expansive formal spaces, such as the living area and formal dining room, invite endless gatherings with a backdrop of custom finishes throughout.
