Located in the heart of Denver, Colorado, lies the original residence of Chipotle founder, Steve Ells. Back on the market for the second time, since its construction in 2001, the Marion House occupies 1348 square meters of the town’s historic Country Club land.
Once an iconic bachelor pad designed by Thomas Briner, the revamped Marion space transformed by architectural firm, ‘Surround’, now incorporates natural materials through remodeling and expansion efforts, plus new and improved family-friendly amenities.
With four bedrooms and five bathrooms, the house is lined with several massive windows – which blur the lines between a perceived interior and exterior. Bordering along a private courtyard, heated saltwater pool and an outdoor kitchen, equipped with a pizza oven and charcoal grill, the house appears caged in a glass façade.
Maintaining hints of its original restaurant-style aesthetic, the Marion House presents the perfect balance between new and old – its facilities include a library, theater, three-car garage with an indoor washing area, exceptionally high ceilings and a commercial kitchen suite, fully stocked with precision cooking hobs, ovens, stainless steel countertops, top-of-the-line maple cabinetry and a slab-cut wooden breakfast bar. Initially by Ells in 2008 for a whopping $3.5 million, the house post-renovation is now worth an estimated $3.8 million.
