The following blog post is from the co-chairs of this year’s L’Esprit de Noël Holiday Home Tour, Pam Bansbach and Brooke Maloy.
These stately homes of the past are rich in historic architecture and represent the solid construction and cultural dynamism of the roaring 1920s. The introduction of new technologies like a central vacuum system and providing a “home” for the automobile were incorporated into these magnificent residencies. While all of the featured homes on the tour where built around the same time, each are unique in their form and presence.
L’Esprit also offers a fabulous boutique, free to the general public, located this year in the prestigious Cherry Creek North shopping district at 105 Fillmore Street in a vacant store space next to Hermes. The Boutique is open from 10:00am until 4:30pm daily during the Tour dates. A variety of vendors offer unique items, including gifts, clothing and jewelry. Shoppers can easily get a jump on their holiday gift buying, while supporting Central City Opera.
