|835 Garfield Meeker, Colorado |
A big beautiful Victorian home on the corner of Garfield and 8th Street in central Meeker. The property is four + lots with 32,250 square feet of land, is completely fenced with heavy duty chain link on the back and sides and pole fences in front, a large well groomed yard with several trees, many lilac and other shrubs, and a nice garden spot.
This is currently a private home but it would make a great Bed and Breakfast. This home is in excellent condition. The home was built by a prominent Meeker businessman in 1908 of brick and has recently been vinyl sided and many new vinyl clad wooden windows have been installed which has greatly improved the heat efficiency of the home. This is a two story home with a basement. The main level has 2,280 square feet with two bedrooms, one full bathroom, a large kitchen with a breakfast bar and a nice sunny dining room. There is a big living room with a ceramic brick fireplace with a wood burning insert in it, a nice big office, a laundry room with a pellet stove in it, a room with a six person hot tub, and several storage rooms.
When this home was built it rivaled the stately homes around the state capitol neighborhood in Denver. There are several leaded glass pocket doors, the original wood trim and doors, and Oak, Maple, and Fir wood floors throughout. There is a nice wrap
around deck and a covered porch on the front of the home facing south.
The upstairs has 1,350 sq. ft. with 4 bedrooms, one bathroom, and more hard wood floors. The landing at the top of the stairs is a sitting room with another ceramic brick fireplace. The basement has 672 sq. ft. with a big pantry and fruit room, 2 big coal bins, and an efficient forced air coal burning stoker-matic furnace. Also on the property is a 1,050 sq.ft. 3 car brick garage with a big loft and a storage shed on the side of it. There are two city water taps. This is a unique property with many fine old extra features.
