The lead singer of The Fray, Isaac Slade, has just listed his nineteenth-century mansion in Denver's prestigious West Highland neighborhood for $2.95 million.
The restored Victorian estate is a haven of interior design trends which are as elegant as its postcode. Complete with a quaint country-style kitchen, several ornate fireplaces, and a secret speakeasy, this property is among the most alluring in Colorado – and one of the world's best homes.
Isaac Slade is best known as the co-founder and lead vocalist of the Colorado-based rock band The Fray. The band rose to international fame in the early 2000s following their hits How to Save a Life, and You Found Me. Isaac has lived in the home at 3015 Lowell Boulevard (opens in new tab) with his wife Anna Slade and their son Judah for over a decade.
All 5,285 square feet of its interiors are exquisitely designed to showcase the property's rich history – from its private reading nook to its luxurious living room, complete with a statement freestanding tub, naturally.
We're also taking cottage kitchen ideas from the cooking space that boasts several of our favorite kitchen trends, including glass-fronted cabinets and a sink that is built into the kitchen island.
Alongside its four bohemian-style bedrooms, walk-in closet, and terrace, the home is a trove of hidden assets, including a Victorian reading nook and a secret wet bar. The speakeasy comes with a built-in bar that oozes a timeless ambiance and offers a mysterious house party setting.
Literary enthusiasts may also recognize the library's rouge wall as it is the same red as the tone used on the vintage cover of Crime and Punishment. The top sections of the walls are also bound in leather to mirror the literary theme. This space was also home to the piano on which Isaac wrote several of The Fray's best-sellers.
Beyond the charming interiors, two French doors lead to an acre of verdant garden space – with a hand-crafted pergola imported from Asia. The space fuels our escapist garden ideas – even if we can't all enjoy Colorado's 300 days of sunshine.
Isaac Slade's home is on the market for $2.95 million with Mckinze Casey of LIV Sotheby's International Realty.
