A Historic Treasure

An Extraordinary Cherry Creek Tudor Estate, Where Timeless Meets Modern

Within the heart of Denver's historic Cherry Creek landscape, at 2750 E Cedar Ave., lies an architectural marvel that was created to demonstrate both opulence and timeless elegance. Built in 1933 by Senator Lawrence C. Phipps for his daughter, and designed by the esteemed Temple Hoyne Buell, this magnificent Tudor estate transcends the realm of modern luxury and finds itself in a palatial position all on its own. "This estate is not just a residence; it's a piece of Denver's history," remarks Libby Helm of Helm Weaver Helm, the top producing team at Compass, which is the #1 Real Estate Brokerage in the U.S.

When asked about what sets Helm Weaver Helm apart, Libby details that their partnership embodies a mission centered on unparalleled service and client satisfaction. "We are not just a team; we are true partners in every transaction," explains Libby. "When you hire us, you get three brokers for the price of one. We are hands-on and there for every showing, ensuring that every home is perfectly teed up before it hits the market." Their dedication to their craft is evident in their approach, as they navigate the intricacies of the market with expertise in communication, negotiation and ultimately, delivering exceptional results for their clients.

Situated in the vibrant neighborhood of Cherry Creek North, this estate boasts proximity to an array of amenities while maintaining the privacy of a secluded enclave. "The location offers the best of both worlds—the tranquility of a neighborhood coupled with easy access to the vibrant offerings of Cherry Creek North," says Libby.

From the moment one sees the estate’s striking façade, adorned with intricate brickwork meticulously crafted by skilled masons from England, it becomes apparent that this residence is in a class of its own. The spiral staircase, ascending gracefully to the third-floor central tower, reaches a soaring height of almost 60 feet, offering a glimpse into the grandeur that this historic residence holds. Leaded glass windows, original crystal chandeliers, parquet flooring and exquisitely handcrafted wood paneling adorn every corner, recalling the unparalleled craftsmanship of a bygone era.

Inside, you are greeted by a series of expansive formal rooms, each emanating refined sophistication, perfectly suited for hosting elegant gatherings. The pièce de résistance awaits in the form of a spectacular 4000-bottle wine cellar, where one can toast to life's pleasures at a dinner party in the company of up to 14 guests. Amidst the grandeur, there are also intimate spaces to be discovered—a newly renovated family room, an updated kitchen bathed in natural light from the sun-filled breakfast room and a relaxing movie theater. All of these comforting spaces offer cozy retreats for cherished moments with family and friends.

The primary suite is a sanctuary of unparalleled luxury and comfort, including a brand-new, five-piece bath alongside an enormous and divine walk-in closet. A private refuge where modern amenities seamlessly merge with timeless elegance, offering a glimpse into a lifestyle of unique refinement and sophistication.

Venture outdoors and you'll find yourself within an oasis of serenity and beauty. Enclosed within gated, professionally landscaped grounds, a 5000-square-foot patio stands complete with an outdoor kitchen, a fire pit and an oversized pool—a sanctuary for leisurely afternoons and al fresco entertaining. A separate charming cabana, equipped with a television, offers an intimate spot for relaxation. Manicured rose gardens and a formal covered patio provide respite amidst the beauty of nature, year-round.

When asked how this estate compares to other listings in the area, Libby underscores the singular and unique value of the property. “It really doesn’t compare,” Libby says. “It’s one of a kind. This home is special. It’s not only a castle, it’s a work of art.” This historic Tudor estate stands as one of Denver's greatest treasures, awaiting those with a discerning eye for beauty and a passion for the extraordinary.
