Tucked away on a storybook lane in the heart of Denver’s high-profile Highland neighborhood is 2460 West Argyle Place, a unique opportunity to customize or create an exceptional home in Scottish Village, one of Denver’s original communities.
Scottish Village is historically significant as the last remaining fragment of Highland Park, a distinctive enclave developed in 1874 by General William Jackson Palmer and Dr. William A. Bell, two of the most influential figures in the early development and settlement of Colorado. Whimsical, meandering streets and unconventionally-shaped lots modeled after Chicago’s famous Riverside neighborhood align with the contours of the area’s topography to create an extraordinary community aesthetic unlike any other Denver district.
At present, an original brick cottage built in 1900 sits on the lot. The interior of this vintage residence has been removed, providing its next owner insights into the condition of the old-world structure and carte blanche for a remodel, pop-top or scrape-and-rebuild. Special zoning (U-RH-2.5, UO-3, CO-3) within the Scottish Village grants homeowners expanded rights that are not typically permitted by Denver’s zoning code, including: narrower setbacks from the lot lines, construction of an accessory dwelling unit (carriage house), ability to install second floor balconies and rooftop patios spanning the entire footprint of the residence, and the ability to build to full height on a greater-than-typical proportion of the lot. Limited commercial use for art studios, a bed and breakfast or offices are also permitted.
