The Lewis Hayden House was originally sited on 15 acres. During that time, the house was home to a tennis court, six car garage and not less than two cows. Lewis Hayden was the son of Thomas S Hayden, President of the Denver Union Water Company and prominent real estate developer of the late 1800’s. After a hardscrabble existence in Cripple Creek, Lewis made his own fortune in mining and returned the Denver to build 1673 Hudson for his family and staff.  The home has been a Park Hill landmark for many years. In more recent times, it had fallen into a state of neglect and was affectionately known as “ The Big Green Monster” for the green painted stucco. The most recent owners have undertaken a labor of love to renovate the home to modern living standards while respecting the original home. The owners assure us every inch of the 8,799 sq feet of the house has been cleaned and polished. For you math aficionados that is 1,267,056 square inches.

The home is a commission of prestigious Denver architect Glen Wood Huntington (1856-1943). From History Colorado's Architects Biographical Sketch, "Glen W. Huntington designed two Denver fire stations and an addition to Denver's Berkeley School, but he derived the majority of his income and fame for his single-family residential designs. He worked in a wide variety of styles from architectural revivals to modern designs popular in the first third of the twentieth century. His design versatility ranged across Classical, Colonial, Tudor and Renaissance revivals, upscale versions of the Foursquare and Bungalow, and includes two of Denver's finest examples of Prairie Style houses."
