Does the name Jacques Benedict ring a bell? Most people won’t know that name, but its a little known fact that Jacques Benedict is responsible for building some of the most prestigious homes in Denver. In fact, his work is so renowned that most of his work is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Jacques was born April 22nd, 1879 in Chicago. He studied architecture at École des Beaux-Arts and came to Denver in 1909. He has built homes, churches, academic and public buildings. Most of his work is memorable and recognizable, however very few people actually know that Jacques Benedict was the mastermind behind the architecture.
Some of the most notable houses that were built by Jacques Benedict are in the neighborhoods of Cheesman Park and Humboldt Island. I’m sure you’ve passed 770 High Street known as the Kohn House coming down 8th avenue. This immaculate property is currently on the market for 4.9 million with 7 beds, 8 baths, and 10,000 finished square feet on a 22,000 square foot lot size. It’s truly one of the most beautifully constructed properties in all of Denver.
There are other houses I’m sure you’ve passed as you’ve driven through Denver. Some of his most notable homes are The Kerr House on 1900 E 7th Avenue, Richard Crawford Campbell House at 909 York Street, Kistler-Rodriguez House on 700 E 9th Avenue, and the Sullivan House. Each one of these homes will sell for millions and are worth every penny.
