Did you know?

Urban legend holds that a tunnel once connected The Brown Palace Hotel with the historic Navarre building across the street. It is rumored that gentlemen staying at the hotel traveled discreetly by rail car through the tunnel to the Navarre, a one-time house of gambling and prostitution.

Classic Homeworks

Classic Homeworks is a full-service design/build remodeling firm, specializing in the renovation of Denver's older homes. While there are many benefits of working with a design/build team, the homeowners that we work with mostly appreciate working with one team from start to finish. Our experienced design team can develop the vision with architectural plans and specifications for the project based on your wants and needs. Then, our craftsman-oriented construction team works with our design team to fulfill the vision. The process is integrated and seamless, and therefore eliminates the typical frustration of remodeling for our homeowners. And, while most of the work we do is designed in-house, we also have the ability to build remodel and new construction projects from architectural plans developed by others.

We take pride in the work that we do and also in the relationships with the homeowners that we serve. So, whatever you may be envisioning for your dwelling, we can help transform your house into the home that you have always dreamed of - with as little disruption in your lifestyle as possible.

Please visit our website at www.classichomeworks.com or call us at (303) 722-3000 if you have any questions about remodeling your historic Denver home.

Casey Miller

Casey Miller is an Annual Sponsor of Historic Denver, Inc. Casey leverages his affiliation with LIV | Sotheby’s International Realty to exceptionally market homes in all price points - with an emphasis on historic and architecturally significant homes in and around Denver. He enthusiastically promotes the lifestyle that comes with living in homes of various styles including the classic Tudors and Bungalows of Bonnie Brae, Platt Park and Washington Park (where he lives in a classic 1930's tudor home with his wife Rebecca, daughter Noelle, and dog Madison) to the large estates and Mansions of Capitol Hill, Cheesman Park, Congress Park, Highland, Mayfair, Montclair, Park Hill and other central Denver neighborhoods.

He even successfully markets castles, and in 2012 was proud to market and sell Denver’s only true castle…the Richthofen Castle in Montclair. The castle is a National Landmark, Historic Denver’s first easement property, and one of Denver’s most significant residential structures. “I use proprietary financial analysis gained from my previous career to advise sellers on how to get the most for their properties, and to counsel buyers so that they get the absolute best value when purchasing historic properties. I have found that my background in architecture and construction is invaluable in educating my clients about the various pitfalls that can come with owning and maintaining older homes.”

A fifth generation native, Casey has established very strong connections within the real estate community which allow him to market homes as no one else can (through his network), and he often times knows of properties that are for sale, but not yet listed in the MLS. Casey joins the board of Historic Denver, Inc. in 2012 and has been active in the One Past 5 Group since its formation in 2009. Casey is a full time professional and prides himself on providing the highest level of service to help you accomplish your goals.
