Petrikin Estate, Estate of the Day
Today's home is quite a stately mansion in Denver, Colorado. The Petrikin Estate was built in 1917-1918 and spans an entire city block. The main red brick house is a white-columned Georgian Colonial Revival and there is also a matching pool house and carriage house on the one-acre property. The Denver Post reveals that the home had a $2.5 million renovation to bring it up to its current luxurious state. The home also recently received Landmark Designation. It was once the home of William Lloyd Petrikin,the president and chairman of the Great Western Sugar Co. Today it belongs to Kiki and Peggy Vandeweghe. Kiki Vandeweghe is the former general manager of the Denver Nuggets.
The 14,000 square-foot mansion has a cigar room, parlor with beautiful woodwork that includes a pub-like bar, paneled library, formal dining room and gourmet kitchen. The lower level has a wine cellar and media room. It was listed at $8 million but now the nine-bedroom home is for sale for $6,999,750.
