Summer 2021 rental: 3-bedroom Victorian in central Denver's Baker Historic District

Our family home is for rent for six weeks beginning June 15, 2021, thru late July. We're in a terrific location: Just a couple blocks off the happening stretch of Denver that is Broadway between 6th Ave. and Alameda. The area is home to the Mayan Theater, more restaurants, bars and coffee houses than I can keep track of; used bookstores, a branch library, post office, and all sorts of indie retail, from a bike shop to a yarn store to a vegan grocer to art galleries. (And just south of Alameda is a shopping center with supermarket, Ace Hardware, and the warehouse store that, alas, isn't Costco. We're also situated just a mile west of Washington Park and a handful of blocks east of Santa Fe Ave., the heart of the city's art scene. But enough about location. Wait, last thing. We're a 12- or 15-min. walk from the Alameda light rail station, which takes you to Union Station and from there, via train, directly to the airport. Very handy! We're also across the street from a bus stop. And if public transit's not your thing, our neighborhood is swarming with electric scooters and bike shares.

OK, Let's talk house...

Built in 1901, it's a brick beauty with lots of period charm. (How's that for Realtor speak?) Main floor features wide plank oak floors, a high-ceilinged living room/dining room that can be separated by french doors, a large oak dining-room table that once served as a lab table in a Texas classroom (and has the carved graffiti to prove it), a smallish but very well equipped kitchen. The kitchen leads to the privacy-fenced back yard and beyond to the large garage. (The garage is something of a rarity in our neighborhood.)

On the second floor are the three bedrooms: the master, off which is a south-facing screened sun porch; a small bedroom presently used as a home office; and a third bedroom. Upstairs also is a large-ish family room with a vintage fireplace now outiftted with an electric-heater insert. In the rear of that room is another workspace or playspace, depending on one's interests and, perhaps, age.

There are two full bathrooms, one on the main floor, the other upstairs. Both have clawfoot tubs and a shower head. In the basement are a washer and dryer, stuff that didn't sell at our last garage sale, and ample storage room.
