Slifer, Smith and Frampton-Denver specializes in luxury downtown properties and Scott Leggett, managing broker, is offering PH6, a quintessential modern penthouse that epitomizes the best of downtown Denver living, for sale. Located in Park Place Lofts—the unsurpassed location that Scott likens to the most sought-after property on a Monopoly board—the 4,100-square-foot, two-story home might not be the largest in the area. It is, however, by far, one of nicest.
"With the level of finishes and level of artistry, this penthouse is the crown jewel of the Riverfront Park neighborhood," Scott says. "It is adjacent to downtown but out of the hubbub."
Mark Smith, the original owner, was the lead developer of Riverfront Park and was also instrumental in Union Station's redevelopment. He sold the unit six or seven years ago for $2.3 million, and the current owners invested another $2 million to gut and remodel the penthouse over a two-year period. The building was designed by 4240 Architects, and Peter H. Dominick Jr., one of the founders of the firm, designed PH6 specifically for Mark Smith.
The state-of-the-art kitchen island includes electronic doors and drawers and a 30-foot wide gas fireplace balances the 20-foot tall ceilings. Two rock-climbing walls parallel the floor-to-ceiling windows in the corner of the great room with unprecedented views of downtown. The penthouse also has the only rooftop deck in the building with a hot tub. An indoor sauna provides another form of personal indulgence. From the deck's perch, savor the unsurpassed 360-degree vistas- mountains, Empower Field at Mile High, Elitch Gardens, downtown looking up 16th Street Mall and the Millennium Bridge. The light rail and Union Station are easily accessible.
With 90 contiguous acres of parks along the Platte River, activities for outdoor lovers abound. Drop a kayak in the Platte River or bike the adjacent trail south to Chatfield or north to Boulder. The Cherry Creek Trail borders the creek to Parker and beyond. Hundreds of restaurants and an array of nightlife are within a 20-minute walk. You might not even need a car, but if you do, the penthouse includes three parking spaces—coveted and rare for any downtown property.
Slifer, Smith and Frampton-Denver, a small boutique brokerage with 17 brokers, began its journey 20 years ago.
"We started as new development sales and morphed into a general real estate brokerage in the last 15 years," Scott explains.
Examples of the firm's success include Landmark, which was a failed development at one point. The brokerage is part of the East-West Partners family, which turned Landmark around and created a presence south of downtown. The Coloradan, 334 condos completed on top of Union Station earlier this year in February, has been a win for the brokerage, too. Only six units remain to be sold.
