LAKEWOOD, CO — A 106-year-old Lakewood home was listed Aug. 21 for $4.1 million. The home’s architect and builder, Lester Varian, was born in Denver, trained in New York and Paris and returned to design many historic Colorado homes.
“This historic gem offers towering evergreens more than 100 years old flanked by lush gardens,” the home’s listing read.
“The privacy of nearly 2.5 acres brings you to an elegant English country home with a detached spacious guest cottage above the three-car heated garage. The setting offers a view expanding from Longs Peak to Pikes Peak, along with a formal rose garden, spacious lawn and large patios.
