2013 Denver Designer Show House
The 2013 Show House is located at 919 Vine Street in the beautiful Morgan’s Historic District — a tiny, elegant neighborhood that boasts 57 of Denver’s most magnificent homes.
The home was designed by architect Lester Varian and constructed in 1927 for local businessmen & philanthropist Henry Porter of Porter Hospital. Mr. Porter was 90 years old when he built the home “to be nearer to his children – not for any assistance, but to see how they invested and spent the money he had given each of them.” He wanted his home to be “sturdy, comfortable and attractive, fitting for a wealthy man but not lavish.”
The grand arts & crafts style home is situated on a coveted half-acre bordering the Denver Botanic Gardens, boasting 7,000 square feet with 7 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, a wrap-around porch, with grand rooms & high ceilings.
