Looking for a unique experience with the comforts of home? Casa de Henrichs is a humble abode located in the Ruby Hill neighborhood, with recent renovations since its purchase date in 2011. The space features two bedrooms and one bathroom inside of the main home, a spacious backyard and a renovated garage that we like to call "The Den".
We consider the main house the quiet space to be civilized and get work done. The Den (back garage) is the spot to relax, listen to music, watch your favorite show, play games and not worry about anything else.
Upon entry into the main home, guests will notice the open layout, which includes the dining + living areas, as well as the kitchen. Across the hallway, guests will find the two bedrooms and full bathroom with a shower + bath.
The spacious backyard has a grassy area with shade, as well as two seating areas. We have placed a small grill in the backyard for any guests who feel like cooking out -- B.Y.O.C (Bring Your Own Charcoal -- haha).
Last but not least, The Den is a renovated, but not insulated space for guests to enjoy. The space features a lounging area, as well as a full bed. One of the coolest parts about The Den are the garage doors, which can easily roll down or up. If interested in learning more details on temperature control + best practices for staying cool or keeping warm, please refer to the "Other Things to Note" section.
Guests will have access to the entire upper level of the main home, private backyard and The Den (back garage).
Interaction with Guests:
My home is professionally managed by a property management company and will be available 24/7.
The neighborhood you are in is called Ruby Hill. It is also affectionately known as the “Loose Chihuahua” neighborhood. If you drive around, you’ll see why. The centerpiece of the neighborhood is Ruby Hill Park which you can walk to. In the summers, they have free concerts almost every night at Levitt Pavilion. In the winters, they have a ski/snowboard hill where they pump in snow! They also have a pool, playground, dirt bike track and communal garden. With amazing views of Denver, you have to check it out!
For those who do not have their own car, I recommend utilizing Lyft or Uber. There is also a few community share programs for cars, such as Turo and Car2Go.
Other Things to Note:
If staying in The Den (back garage), it is not insulated in the ceiling, so if there is extreme weather it can take awhile to heat up or cool down. 90% of the time, The Den is comfortable but just something to be aware of as it is still a garage. In the summer, it will begin to heat up around noon until 4 pm. Guests can use the AC or fans to keep it cool if guests need to be in there during the day. Once evening arrives, to clear out the hot air quickly open the doors, windows, and/or garage doors and use a fan to blow the outside colder air in -- it will become comfortable again. In the winter, it's the opposite. Usually, the fireplace is enough to heat the whole space comfortably. In some cases when it is extremely cold (i.e. below freezing), it will take an hour or two to heat up the room. If it is cold, then I recommend to keep the fireplace on constantly. Generally, even when it's freezing, it's still OK to sleep out there with the fireplace on. Guests can also use an electric heater.
There are long-term tenants that live downstairs. Please be respectful of them and their home during your stay.
