Rancho Tranquilo – $5,000,000
24889 Grandview Avenue, Golden, Colorado, United States, 80401
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.”
The estate also includes a guest house, greenhouse, gazebo, multiple fountains, bronze statues , 9+ car garage storage with RV stall and its own water rights to a spring with a water treatment system.
Yet hidden, the gated estate sits on 11.4 acres of the southern peak of Genesee Mountain, capturing panoramic Continental Divide views with Mt Evans and Denver city lights.
Rancho Tranquilo was one of 25 sites that were issued historical interest plaques by the Jefferson County Historical Commission.
