This head-turning mansion, which backs up to Cheesman Park, is typically referred to as "Humboldt Island," and it can be yours ... for a cool $4.5M.
The Thompson-Henry Mansion in Cheeseman Park, which was originally built in 1905 for Alonzo Thompson, has been listed for sale at $4.5 million.
The historic mansion is surrounded by 24 other large historic homes in the Humboldt Street Historic District, and it was designed by Baerresen Brothers Architects in the Georgian-Revival style – it was one of the first homes in Denver to include steel-beam construction.
This 11,00-square-foot home, located at 1070 North Humbolt Street, includes turn-of-the-century Neoclassical architecture, a classic façade, Palladian windows, and a semicircular portico. It's truly a well-preserved piece of the city’s history. The home was last purchased in 1991 for $650,000 by local couple Kathleen and Bob Reginelli, who restored and updated the house, adding a solarium to the eight-bedroom, six-bath residence.

This historic beauty sits on a 15,500-square-foot lot, which features several formal living spaces that are not often seen in today's homes – including a parlor, billiards room, conservatory, dining room, entry hall, grand staircase, and a grand ballroom in the basement with a separate guest entrance. A three-car attached garage, firepit, deck and impressive landscaping back up to Cheeseman Park.

Seven fireplaces, hand-painted and gold leaf staircases and ceilings, as well as two dozen stained glass windows, add to the impressive décor of this historic home. The home also has a claim to fame, having been used as the location for a remake of The Shining, according to the owners, as well as other televisions shows and movies.
The home has hosted many politicians and dignitaries’ events, sometimes, with 500 guests or more.

This property has been well cared for and loved during the time it served as the Regginelli family home, its large stained-glass windows, grand staircase, and entry hall some of the features that drew them in back in 1991. It will be bittersweet for the family to leave the historic residence; however, they know this home will mean just as much to whoever buys it.
