DENVER — Overlooking Cheesman Park is a historic home — the Thompson-Henry Mansion, built in 1905 for Alonzo Thompson. It's not alone, surrounded by the 24 other large residences constructed between 1895 and 1920 that make up the Humboldt Street Historic District.

Designed in the Georgian-Revival style by Baerresen Brothers Architects, the 11,000-square-foot home was one of the first residences in Denver built with steel-beam construction, according to the listing for the home, which went on the market Friday for $4.5 million.

Kathleen and Bob Reginelli, a recently retired Denver-based investment banker, purchased the eight-bedroom, six-bathroom home at 1070 N. Humboldt St. for $650,000 in 1991.

"This was love at first sight for my husband," Kathleen Reginelli told Denver Business Journal. "We come to this big wonderful entry hall. And he looked up to see the stained glass in what they call the grand staircase. And I mean, that was it. We were hardly in the house 20 feet. And he said, I think this is it. This is it."
