Agnes R. Tammen built the “Rancho Tranquilo” estate in 1930.  She was one of the most important philanthropic supporters of the Children’s Hospital and wife of Harry H. Tammen, owner of the Denver Post.

This Spanish-style estate was designed by architects Burnham Hoyt (also known for designing the Red Rocks Amphitheatre) and his brother Merrill, who adapted many of the features of the famed Armour Place at Santa Barbara, Juan y Lolita Rancho, owned by entertainment tycoons.

Replicas of famous paintings, such as Goya’s “The Clothed Maja,” have been inset in tile and featured on the walls throughout the home. Hand crafted wrought iron scenes of mountain and wildlife decorate many of the home’s 7 fireplaces.

Excellent craftsmen were employed to beautify the over 7,000 square foot ranch house with verandas, stone walls, walkways, patios, wrought iron trim and outdoor “cantina.”
