Boettcher Mansion by Fisher & Fisher

Boettcher Mansion by Fisher & Fisher

Designed in 1917 by the prominent Denver architecture firm Fisher & Fisher and located in the mountains just outside of Denver, the Boettcher Mansion was constructed of native grey stone and timber, much of it taken from the site.

Originally called Lorraine Lodge and built as the summer residence of magnate Charles Boettcher, this home on Lookout Mountain is an Arts & Crafts exemplar. The English-style Tudor exterior combines stucco, timber and rustic arches. Its mass is perfectly in keeping with its rugged surroundings:

The interior feels massive as well and features light fixtures, wallpapers and other details of the mansion’s restoration that blend seamlessly with the original interior architecture and furnishings:
