One of the last remaining structures along Denver’s Millionaires Row from the 1800s is off the market.

Marcus & Millichap announced Monday the sale of the landmark building in Denver’s Capitol Hill neighborhood known as The Creswell Mansion, a 5,716-square-foot office property at 1244 N. Grant St.

The protected city landmark sold for $1 million to a local radiologist and developer.

“It’s rare to see such a majestic looking, historic mansion smack dab in the middle of the city,” said Cory Gross, first vice president investments in Marcus & Millichap’s Denver office. “As a result, we received interest on it from all around the country, but am glad it ultimately sold to a local buyer looking to preserve it. It was a perfect fit for the buyer’s portfolio and I’m excited to see what the buyer has in store for it in the future.”

Gross had the exclusive listing to market the property on behalf of the seller, a limited liability company.

Featuring a sandstone exterior and adorned with various carvings and gargoyles, the mansion was built in 1889 for business magnate Joseph Creswell and his family. It was designed by John J. Huddart, a premier architect in the region who also designed several courthouses, armories, schools and prominent homes in the state.

Creswell was president of the Colorado Marble & Mining Company, president of the Manufacturers Exchange, and was active in the local chamber of commerce, working to promote Denver as a manufacturing hub.

The Creswell mansion was designated a landmark in 1975.
