Description

A National Landmark and a Local Treasure -
The Castle was completed in 1887 by the uncle & godfather of the WWI flying ace & most celebrated fighter pilot of all time - The Red Baron. Baron Walter Von Richthofen was from Prussia and modeled the castle after his ancestral home. He purchased 320 acres which he named "Montclair" & had plans to develop this land into a health & recreational resort. The "Molkery" was part of this plan. It is located two blocks west of the castle & serves as the Montclair Civic Building today. In addition, a large stone fountain was erected, and still stands, as a tribute to Baron Von Richthofen at the intersection of Oneida Street and Oneida Place, just south of Richthofen Parkway.

He built the castle out of limestone from Castle Rock, CO. Some details to note are the coat of arms above the main entrance, on the tower, as well as the sandstone bust of Frederick Barbarossa "Red Beard" on the northeast corner of the home. The grand Porte-cochere & stone tower are two defining architectural details of this intriguing property. This is the only true "Castle" in Denver, yet it lives like a home. 14,000 square feet of fine handcrafted detail including amazing woodwork, leaded glass & hand-tooled leather wallpaper. 35 total rooms including: drawing room, library, music alcove, servant's quarters, butler's pantry, billiards room, "Red Baron" bar, 8 bedrooms & 7 bathrooms. The property is gated and private. The wrap-around terrace and courtyard are perfect for social gatherings. Two million dollars was spent in 1910 by E.B Hendrie to convert the second story of the front facade from a crenelated parapet fortress to a modified tudor. The architects were Maurice Biscoe & Jules Jacques Benedict, two of Denver's most respected & well-known architects. This property has an incredible history & provenance. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own what the National Register calls, "The Most Remarkable Residence in Denver".

A National Landmark and Denver's Only True Castle.
