Description

A legacy awaits. For more than a century, Sharp Mansion has stood as the jewel in the crown that is now called the Old North End. Built in 1912, this 14,000+ SqFt stately home is rooted in the charm and history so many have come to associate with this neighborhood. Designed & built by famed Dutch architect Nicholas van den Arend, it is gracefully situated on a large corner lot with original wrought iron fencing, original imported Italian tile roof, established plantings serviced by a grandfathered alluvial well, and an interior that has been sumptuously revitalized. Many features indicative of the era the home was built have been lovingly preserved. Restoration accomplishments are countless and modernization has been thoughtfully and discreetly added where necessary. Of particular historic significance are the seven fireplaces with Van Briggle tile surrounds that are original to the home, an expansive south-facing patio and the original carriage house with an additional three bedrooms. Of modern significance include a hospitality-grade kitchen, a marvelous and restorative primary suite, modern home networking and an all-new pickleball court and putting green.When asked about their favorite aspect of the home, the current owners were hard pressed to identify just one. They fondly recalled large family gatherings and the joy of having everyone staying in the home together; the indelible memories made. Also memorable to the owners were the numerous neighborhood, social and civic functions hosted here and the certainty that this home remains a lasting tribute to Colorado Springs and to the legacy of the Sharp family. Countless treasured moments have come before; countless more to come for the next stewards of this magnificent estate in the heart of Colorado Springs. Easy access to I-25 North or South, makes for easy commuting along the Front Range. Enjoy walking out the door to museums, dining, historic Monument Valley Park and more.
